Each December, YCAT offers a tour of holiday lights around Yuma for one hour.

The route served includes the Fortuna Foothills as well as Central Yuma on a tour that takes approximately one and one half hours. Hot drinks and snacks are served prior to boarding the buses.
Regular YCAT fares apply. $2.00 for basic riders and $1.00 for discount riders.
Savor Yuma Culinary Tours
In partnership with the Yuma Visitors Bureau, YCAT operates the Savor Yuma Culinary Tour! Leave the driving to us for “progressive dinner” tour where you’ll sample field-fresh Yuma bounty and fare prepared with border flair. The “Savor Yuma” tours will take you on a culinary quest through a variety of venues with a convivial group.
We’ll mix up the menus and itineraries to bring you a taste of Yuma’s best ... perhaps starting with a kitchen lesson on authentic salsa and margaritas, followed by soup or salad served in a historic setting, then offering elegant entrées on a lushly landscaped patio. It’s a great way to meet new people and try new tastes – our biggest fans extended their stay last year just to be on board for every tour!
This service is open to the public. Reservations are required and are scheduled on a first come first served basis. Service will resume in Winter 2015.
Please reserve your ride by calling 1 (800) 293-0071 or (928) 783-0071. The tours are $50.00 each day to participate in the progressive dining activities. Regular YCAT fares apply when not participating with progressive dining activities. The fares are $2.00 for basic riders and $1.00 for discount riders.
