Learn about Sedona's history and spectacular geology on a highlights tour that provides an excellent introduction to this famously scenic part of Arizona.

Your informative guide shares fascinating stories about Sedona's history, plant and animal life, geology, and climate throughout your tour. Keep your camera handy for frequent photo ops of breathtaking vistas and local landmarks. After pickup from your uptown Sedona hotel, meet your guide and hear an overview of the points of interest in the area, so that you can customize your tour to your interests and abilities.

Some of the most popular parts of the route include a drive through Oak Creek Canyon, which is considered one of the most beautiful canyons in Arizona, a 'little cousin' to the Grand Canyon. Drive the scenic route that runs between the creek and the towering red rock formations and stop at Bell Rock for stunning views of the massive rock. You can even stop at roadside stands that display Native American jewelry and crafts for sale.

Airport Mesa is another highlight, where you'll want to get your camera out to capture this vantage point on the red rock of West Sedona. Then visit the Chapel of the Holy Cross, an architectural wonder that was built in 1956. The innovative building was constructed on a 250-foot (76-meter) tower of red rock, with an enormous window that illuminates the interior and frames the desert landscape and sky outside.

The views were amazing, as well as the amount of knowledge our tour guide had. Not only did he give the history of the area but also gave great recommendations all the way to the best places to park.

Great tour; crappy bus

The tour guide, Joe, did an amazing job. My complaint is in the bus. The air was turned all the way up and it was scorching hot. My son got car sick, my daughter fell asleep because of the heat and my husband and I were not happy. It would have been better if the windows were opened but you couldn’t open any. If they fix the bus it would be worth the money because Joe did a great job! I’d highly recommend a tour with Joe. Again great tour guide

Dear Valued Guest, Great to hear that you valued your time with Joe on your tour...he's terrific. We are puzzled by your complaint regarding the a/c in this van as we routinely use this van ( a smaller van than normal) without any complaints of this kind. The van was examined by our maintenance department who could find no issue and we have had no complaints from other guests. Arizona in the summer is known for its extreme temperatures. If you return to the area in a milder climate period, let's try this again.

This was a good tour. I took away 2 stars because the way the van is set up you cannot see it off the front of the van or out of the opposite side windows enough to be able to see most of what is being talked about. We were the only 2 on the van besides the driver and I was disappointed. The driver was knowledgeable and kind and showed us all sorts of places to eat and things to do in sedona which was super thoughtful. I wish that there were more stops for photo opportunities. A lot of the time I was taking photos through the van window which was tinted and distorts image color plus glare and reflection. I wouldn't say this was a complete waste but I would say that I wish I had opted for something else although the AC was nice

The scenic drop offs were great. Unfortunately the rest of the trip was about where to park and eat.
