Excellent and Educational too!
Douglas_C, Feb 2024
Mr. Clay was an excellent and knowledgeable guide. We learned a lot on this tour and a bunch was crunched into the 5.30 hour tour. I highly recommend the tour. I also recommend you spend the night there so that you can spend more time on that 2nd day shopping and locating a restaurant you want to go to and not feel rushed to get back to the bus. It was a great day!!

magical day in sedona
Nicole_M, Feb 2024
My sister and I did the half day Sedona tour on our first day in town, first time visiting AZ ever. It was amazing! Celeste was the best guide, wonderful energy and super knowledgeable about the area, history and the vortices including sharing additional details if we want to learn more. She also gave us tons of local info by sharing her favorite trails, sunset spots, drives and restaurants. You could tell how much she loves the area which makes the tour that much more special. We had beautiful weather in February and had a spectacular day. Thank you so much!!
Sedona is Stunningly Beautiful

Alexandra_A, Feb 2024
Beautiful experience with great people!! Would definitely go back! Very knowledgeable and friendly! 😍
Not worth the money in slow seasons.
Amy_M, Feb 2024
I enjoyed myself because I was with my husband, but thought the tour was overpriced for what it was. It would be great since you are charging so much to pay your tour guides adequately so they don't ask for a %15-%20 tip. If it's a super busy season, it might be worth it so you don't have to worry about parking at various places, but for this time of year, we would have been better off going on our own. I would do a jeep tour if you really want to get up close and personal to the surroundings.
Great all around tour for one day in Sedona.
Donald_B, Feb 2024
It was a perfect balance of seeing various rock formations and getting out to enjoy vortex areas, shopping, the West and Uptown Sedona areas. Avery was an informative and fun guide and enjoyed spending the half day with him.
Perfect 5 Hour Tour to Leisurely See Sedona

Great day seeing the spectacular sights of Sedona, strolling through shopping districts and hearing about the history of this majestic and magnificent city. Avery, our driver and guide, was knowledgeable and fun making the day fly by and fun. This tour is the perfect way to spend a half day leisurely seeing the sights and staying on the road in a smooth ride.
Awesome highlight tour!

Cindy was a great tour guide! Very experienced and has lived in Sedona for some time. This is a great tour to get a sample of what the area has to offer - and then you can go back and spend time in places you would like.
Awesome Tour for a the full experience of Sedona
John_M, Jan 2024
Took the half/day tour. It was just what we were looking for. Felt that it included a little of everything; the history of Sedona and the sites to see. Picked this tour because we were not just interested in the outback of Sedona mountains but wanted to get familiar with its evolution. Avery, our guide, was very informative and great on history and memorabilia – highly recommend him. Also, highly recommend taking this tour if you want to get the full value of your Sedona experience. Oh yeah, DRESS WARM!
Loved our trip to Sedona
Kimberly_W, Jan 2024
We had such a great time on the half day Sedona sight seeing tour! We highly recommend!! We loved learning about all of the history of Sedona and visiting places we would have never known to visit.
First time adventurer.
Gerald_P, Dec 2023
Our guide cindy was really informative and she actually sang a song just before we ended. We would have never been able to see all the sites ourselves if we had to drive in a terrible traffic. Got to know everybody that rode with us and it was a blast. Thank you cindy
Taste of Sedona
Shneour_H, Dec 2023
Pretty good trip for getting a taste of Sedona. The tour guide/driver was very informative. Bring earmuffs and a winter hat as the van doesn't have windows and allows air to blow in on cold days. I felt it was a little pricy considering that all the stops we did were free entrance and 2 hours out of the five were at shopping centers. But not bad.
Engaging and Entertaining
Paulo_O, Dec 2023
We took the half day tour with Scenic Sedona Tours. They use a modified open-cabin van which we found comfortable and pleasant. We also appreciated the fact that the group size was limited to nine people. John was our tour guide and he was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He took us to several interesting spots while providing relevant historical bits and explanations. I highly recommend this tour.
Amazing sites!
Cynthia_R, Dec 2023
We went on the 5 hour tour and saw more than we ever would have on our own. Our tour guide was amazing. We definitely recommend this tour!
