This area of Arizona is so rich in Native American history and culture. On this full-day trip from Phoenix, you will visit ancient ruins at either Tuzigoot National Monument or Montezuma Castle National Monument. One of the largest pueblos ever built by the Sinagua some time between 1100 and 1450 AD is at Tuzigoot National Monument. You’ll see the ruins of a building that once consisted of two stories and 110 rooms. Wonderfully preserved Montezuma Castle National Monument is an easily accessible structure built into a cliff about 70 feet (21 meters) above the ground. Here, find an impressive five stories and 20 distinct rooms. 

Before returning to Phoenix, visit The Chapel of the Holy Cross, a modern chapel built into the buttes, as well as massive Bell Rock, one of Sedona's most popular red rock formations. You'll likely find the red-rock formations of Sedona awe-inspiring. Don't forget your camera to capture the vast landscapes.

Dan our tour guide made everyone feel comfortable, welcomed and cared for. He shared his knowledge of the landscape we passed and also the sites we visited. The diverse places we stopped made the tour very enjoyable -appreciative of the country I call home.

Omg , What a wonderful tour. The people I met will be with me forever. Sam our guide was the best I have ever had. Humble, educated to all areas of concern, funny, sprite filled, knowledgeable of many interesting facts. The type of person you know love’s what he is doing in life. I can’t stop talking about my tour. It has sparked my desire to travel more .

Tracy is what you want in a tour guide: knowledgeable and friendly. He gives just the right amount of information and knows when to let the experience speak for itself. The tour was well paced, the van comfortable, and the scenery spectacular.

My parents attended this tour. Their guide's name was Aldo. Per my parents, Aldo was fantastic. My parent's English is limited and Aldo, who speaks 5 languages, made sure they understood everything and was always extremely attentive. Aldo was very funny and friendly. They thoroughly enjoyed the tour and would definitely do it again. They would highly recommend this tour to anyone...

Went with my husband. Wear airy cloths, sunblock, hat to block sun, power bars . You definitely want a tour to drive u there so u can enjoy the scenery and take a nap. This Is something u can’t do alone. Our guide Dan was amazing so full of knowledge and super friendly . Amazing scenic views, time to stop and explore, take pictures. The Sedona drop off uptown for shopping was just a plus to the whole experience …. Only wish we would of had more time to spend shopping at each location…. At that price for the tour…. It really is a steal since your not wasting gas, they pay for all the admissions and your going need that nap after all this excitement….. thank you Dan..!!

Traveled with Diane on the Sedona day trip. Very knowledge & attentive tour guide. She really brought the tour to life & made it a very good day. She made it a point to stop at all the right places for a good amount of time. Her driving was smooth and her ability to point out so many interesting formations along the way was GREAT! Diane was very friendly and had an easy going personality - she really knew her stuff about Sedona & it’s history. Five stars!!!

This tour was great! I took this tour with my 9 yo. It covered a lot of sights and extras we would never have known about had we taken this route on our own. Algo was our tour guide and he was amazing, knowledgeable, friendly and very accommodating. I would definitely take a tour with him as our guide again!

Excellent Value and Choice

This trip was a class act all of the way. Our driver, Aldo, was very professional, an excellent driver, and took the time to make everyone feel comfortable while he was providing insights and background information on the sights. The road to Sedona can be busy. It was therefore great to have someone else drive so that my family and I could enjoy the sites. Shout out also to Nate and Victoria in the office who worked with us, answered our questions, and made sure that everything ran smoothly!
