Early morning, the desert quiet and beautiful. We were lucky to have just 4 of us in the jeep with the driver/guide, who was wonderful and knowledgeable along the way as well as at the ruins. This is a great tour, especially if you like history, and a highlight during our Sedona visit.

This was a great tour. Lots of history about the local area. Our guide was well prepared and Knew His Stuff. The ride was very enjoyable. My suggestion is to plan on an early departure tour. The cool morning makes the ride that much better.

We absolutely loved our tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and so very kind to my husband. My husband is on oxygen and had to take things a little slower. Our day was perfect. Thank you

Our tour guide, Jerry, was wonderful! He provided interesting information and answered our random questions about the area. Although you could take these trails on your own, I highly recommend taking a jeep tour.

Our guide was wonderful!! His family had been in the Sedona area since the Civil War so had many personal, family tales to share. He was very knowledgeable, candid, as well as entertaining. We booked the 8:00 am trip and were happy we had as it gets busier later in the day.
