Some of the most popular parts of the route include a drive through Oak Creek Canyon, which is considered one of the most beautiful canyons in Arizona, a 'little cousin' to the Grand Canyon. Drive the scenic route that runs between the creek and the towering red rock formations and stop at Bell Rock for stunning views of the massive rock. You can even stop at roadside stands that display Native American jewelry and crafts for sale.

Airport Mesa is another highlight, where you'll want to get your camera out to capture this vantage point on the red rock of West Sedona. Then visit the Chapel of the Holy Cross, an architectural wonder that was built in 1956. The innovative building was constructed on a 250-foot (76-meter) tower of red rock, with an enormous window that illuminates the interior and frames the desert landscape and sky outside.

Great historical tour and guide to several trails in town
shawn, Apr 2024
Our tour was the most informative and interesting tour of Sedona we have ever taken. Our tour guide was raised in Sedona and shared not only the history of the town but added personal anecdotes that enriched our experience. This is a beautiful area and having the tips and guidelines provided by our guide made our vacation experience better than ever.

The tour guide did not point out the rock formations by name. Gave no information about the area The traffic was bad (not his fault) and we didn’t get to the final stop. We could have driven ourselves and saved a lot of money A partial refund would be appreciated

Didn’t get to go all the places listed in the itinerary. Don’t take Friday late trips as this can conflict with local traffic. We skipped one stop the one we really wanted to go the most.

Our tour driver, Bruce, was very informative and knew a great deal about the Sedona area and things to do and see in the area.
The best way to explore Sedona!
Tara_T, Jul 2023
We explored Sedona during a heat wave and the air condition van made the tour very comfortable! Bobby, our tour guide was very informative, attentive, and made our experience exceptional - he even made sure we were hydrated and provided us with water. I would highly recommended this tour if traveling with older individuals. My mom (65) was able to go at her own pace, sit in the AC if she chose to, and was very content/pleased overall.
Great Tour

View from the airport mesa was beautiful. Brew was an excellent guide. Very accommodating with pick up.
Informative tour of breathtaking natural beauty in the comfort of a nice vehicle
frank_k, Mar 2023
We arrived in Sedona just in time to join this tour. The van picked us up at our hotel and we joined another couple, the driver, and driver-in-training. Really glad we picked this because it was raining a lot while we were in Sedona but we were nice and dry inside the van while watching others in open jeep rides getting wet or bundled up in plastic rain jackets. Our driver, Bobby, was very informative and showed us all over Sedona. A lot of crowds at the Chapel of the Holy Cross so we were thankful not to have to battle for parking spots if we drove ourselves. Bobby pointed out places we would never have seen on our own and made the trip very enjoyable. The views are breathtaking. Highly recommend this tour even in dry weather.

We lucked out on a solo tour with Sherman. He’s a fountain of information and wonderful stories. It was an excellent way to see Sedona and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
Easy way to see Sedona highlights
Judy_L, Mar 2023
Mark provided lots of info while driving us to see Sedona highlights. Loved being dropped off/picked up at the top of the chapel rode. Nice experience for us as new visitors to Sedona.
Great Tour!
