What To Expect

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.

Terrific tour of Native American ruins and beautiful Sedona. Aldo was a great guide making the day a wonderful experience. He is amiable, erudite and very knowledgeable of Arizona history and details of the sites visited. He also made for a very efficient and relaxing trip, avoiding traffic and congestion on a very busy tourist day. Highly recommend this tour for a family and would advise requesting Aldo as your guide!

This trip was excellent, I totally recommend it. We were able to see the red rocks, learn a bit about the history of the area, and spend some time in Sedona. Every stop offered something slightly different and the time in Sedona was perfect!
Very pleased with our Tour!
Nancy_M, Jun 2023
We were very pleased with our tour and it gave us an overview of Sedona! We chose this tour because needed a tour that was somewhat easy and not a lot of walking because my husband was walking with a cane. From the time we were picked up right at our hotel in Scottsdale we knew we had chosen the right one and we couldn't have asked for a better tour guide. Diane kept us informed of what we were seeing from the time we left our hotel until she dropped us back off that afternoon. We had plenty of time at each stop and she even was able to add a couple of stops not on the list. We had very little waiting time at any of our stops. If we have the opportunity to request a tour guide again, we will ask for Diane!
Fun and learning experience

Our guide Mike was very knowledgeable but not boring at the same time. The entire trip was fun and very well organized. We learn so much and took a lot of pictures. That was our first time visiting Sedona.
Stunning Sedona
Stuart_W, May 2023
Sedona is beautiful and a must see. Definitely a hidden gem in Arizona. Whole tour excellent and would highly recommend for overseas tourists.
Tour was not what we...
Elizabeth_I, Apr 2023
Tour was not what we expected. Description on-line lead us to believe that optional trail hike was part of tour once in Sedona. Way too much time shopping instead of seeing the sites.
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Hello and thank you for your feedback. I have looked at our tour listing and I'm not seeing where we mention hiking was included. It is available for an additional cost if you add it prior to the tour date. The tour listing describes the expectations we deliver. We did take you to some incredible sights like the famous Chapel of the Holy Cross, Bell Rock and Airport Mesa, which is what's advertised. We hope you enjoyed the scenery and got some great photos. Thanks, Rachel Bass

Best photo ops ever!
dlcamesbury, Mar 2023
The tour guide for this trip was fantastic, knowledgeable about nature and history of the area. No part of this trip seemed rushed,; we had plenty of time at each stop whether it was a photo stop or some thing more involved. The scenery along most of the drive and at all of the stops was breathtaking. The views surrounding the area of the Chapel, Bell Rock, and the Airport (vortex) site were amazing. Uptown Sedona was interesting to walk around- lots of outdoor art along with the galleries and shops.
You are guaranteed to have a great time!

Overall Pleasant and Enriching
Eva_J, Mar 2023
We had a pleasant round trip drive from Phoenix to Sedona seeing said sites. The threat of 50% chance of rain had us worried but Mark let us know he had extra umbrellas just in case - great info to know ahead of time to save bag space. Mark was very nice and knowledgeable!
