Totally enjoyable. Sociable, informed guide without being overly chatty. Great tour. My husband, a mechanical engineer, was totally enthralled with Pink Jeeps overhaul of under carriage.... Our guide knew all about that, too. Good mix of adventure and site seeing as well as history/anthropology. We have already recommended Pink Jeep Tours.

Very informative with a casual presentation that made the information easy to comprehend. Rae is an excellent guide who clearly understood the culture and living conditions of the indigenous native Americans living there many years ago.

We had the most wonderful time and Roger was very professional and on time and gave us lots of education on the history and the plants around the desert. The ruins were a very short hike! I would recommend this for all visits to Sedona. Julie and Thom

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.
