The best introduction to Sedona and its many offerings! It even forced me out of my comfort zone to visit The Chapel of The Holy Cross due to my fear of heights, but it was so worth it! I could have driven myself around all day and missed so much nature and knowledge. You will be so grateful having taken this tour.

We liked getting an overview of the Sedona area and some of the history past and present from someone who knows and lives here. The Cathedral in the Rocks was particularly beautiful;also lovely to see the Tlaquepaque shopping center before all the crowds. Sherman was a great guide

The tour was beautiful and the guide was very informative. However I was a little disappointed that we did not get out at the vortex like was promised in the description. If I had to do it again I would take the tour on my first day there to discover what I wanted to see more of. Unfortunately we did this on our second day.

Instead of the nice looking van advertised, a small bus arrived. Half the trip was either loading or unloading other passengers. A whole lot of sitting in traffic.

Tour guide makes all the difference

We had a short time in Sedona & this was ideal to hit a few highlights without having to deal with parking or driving on a busy day. While the group enjoyed the stops our experience was dampened by our guide Sherman in his attitude, sarcasm and overall condescending demeanor when we asked questions or incorrectly answered any of his questions about the area. This is not the kind of experience you would expect from a tour.

Really not great
lulu_b

It’s true we saw the chapel of the holy cross (spent 25 minutes there), the airport (yes we were specifically driven through the airport carpark and airport!)and the view from the airport. The guide also pointed out and named many of the rocks including bell rock. However, we spent nearly 3/4 hour driving to pick up the other guests. We asked to be dropped off on the way back to avoid retracing our steps again to drop them off! And the other “highlights’” were a drive through the Tlaquepaque shopping area, and a drive through the Main Street in uptown Sedona pointing out shops and restaurants. I’m still a bit stunned that this was part of the tour. There was no Oak creek canyon scenery, the geology was minimal, history ok. But overall definitely not worth the £115 we paid for 2 of us. I wouldn’t recommend. Get a jeep tour if you can.

Hi Lulu, we're sorry to hear the local tour didn't meet your expectations. This tour is designed to be an overview so that you can see the highlights like Airport Mesa overlook, Chapel of the Holy Cross and other formations plus learn about the opportunities for dining, shopping, arts and more. It's a great way to discover places you'd like to visit in depth. Sedona has much to offer and seeing it all can be a multi day experience. Our guides help you get a taste of the area without having to drive or navigate on your own. We do appreciate the feedback and hope you enjoyed your stay.

Mark was the perfect guide…. A little funny, a lot of information, right amount of stops. We have been to Sedona a couple times over past 5 years, but never took a tour. Even in a cloudy day…. The views were amazing. Went to some places we would have never gone on our own.

The amazing scenery, especially the church. Joe’s vast knowledge of the area and willingness to answer questions and share experiences made this a great tour for an overview of Sedona. Being able to share this tour with family and making lasting memories is a blessing.

My favorite tour this trip, Al took good care of us and he's funny too
Frances_K
, Nov 2021
This is my favorite tour this trip. Al is funnier than a Disneyland Adventureland Cruise guide. I was worried because it's chilly in the morning and sometimes a bit breezy, and our tour was 8am in the morning. Thankfully, this was a van tour, and Al called to see if he could pick us up a little bit earlier than 8am. The windows are large so there was no visibility problem. Everyone was picked up pretty quickly (2 other groups besides ourselves) and then we were on our way. Al made the tour even better because he was so entertaining. He knew a lot about the area and was talking nonstop. He also does periodic checks to see if we were comfortable. The scenery is amazing too, and we got to see the inside of the Chapel of the Holy Cross. We also got to see the scenic sites listed on the tour.
