What To Expect

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.

Informative tour of breathtaking natural beauty in the comfort of a nice vehicle
frank_k, Mar 2023
We arrived in Sedona just in time to join this tour. The van picked us up at our hotel and we joined another couple, the driver, and driver-in-training. Really glad we picked this because it was raining a lot while we were in Sedona but we were nice and dry inside the van while watching others in open jeep rides getting wet or bundled up in plastic rain jackets. Our driver, Bobby, was very informative and showed us all over Sedona. A lot of crowds at the Chapel of the Holy Cross so we were thankful not to have to battle for parking spots if we drove ourselves. Bobby pointed out places we would never have seen on our own and made the trip very enjoyable. The views are breathtaking. Highly recommend this tour even in dry weather.

We lucked out on a solo tour with Sherman. He’s a fountain of information and wonderful stories. It was an excellent way to see Sedona and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
Easy way to see Sedona highlights
Judy_L, Mar 2023
Mark provided lots of info while driving us to see Sedona highlights. Loved being dropped off/picked up at the top of the chapel rode. Nice experience for us as new visitors to Sedona.
Great Tour!
Rhonda_J, Feb 2023
Really enjoyed the visit to the cathedral. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the plants and vegetation along the route.
The driver Charlie was...
Travis_E, Oct 2022
The driver Charlie was great and very knowledgeable. The drive was nice, but we only stopped at 2 places to get pictures and this is why I rated it 4 stars. The group we were with was also great; it had people from all over America.
A great tour guide - Charlie
Damyan_B, Sep 2022
A great tour guidance provided by Charlie. The tour itself was quite boring . Only 2 main highlights - the Church and the airport, whether we were able to get some photos.
My trip to Beautiful Sedona

Sedona in a Day
Maria_L, Jul 2022
Tour guide was knowledgeable and had a good sense of humor. He shared some of his favorite spots and made us feel welcome in an unknown town. Thank you!
Michael_M, Jun 2022
Guide was friendly and informative but the trip itself was boring. Could have driven to the same sites in less time and had a better view out my windshield. Sitting in the back of a van does not offer a good view. Would not recommend.
Gained a good deal of knowledge about Sedona.
Monty, Jun 2022
I now have a good bit of knowledge about the city of Sedona that I could never have learned on my own during my short stay. It was just what I wanted, thanks to the guide.

Kimberly_F, May 2022
The best introduction to Sedona and its many offerings! It even forced me out of my comfort zone to visit The Chapel of The Holy Cross due to my fear of heights, but it was so worth it! I could have driven myself around all day and missed so much nature and knowledge. You will be so grateful having taken this tour.
Beutiful Sedona and its wonderful scenery and history

An Overall View of Sedona Past and Present
Lynn_S, Apr 2022
We liked getting an overview of the Sedona area and some of the history past and present from someone who knows and lives here. The Cathedral in the Rocks was particularly beautiful;also lovely to see the Tlaquepaque shopping center before all the crowds. Sherman was a great guide
Response from Host, Apr 2022
Thank you for traveling with us and thanks for the wonderful comments. We love our area and it's a pleasure to share it with our guests.
Excellent customer service.
Elena_M, Apr 2022
I would like to thank our driver and staff for the wonderful customer service. The tour was excellent. Our driver was very knowledgeable and very kind. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone. Thank you all very much.
OK tour to do on your first day
bev, Apr 2022
The tour was beautiful and the guide was very informative. However I was a little disappointed that we did not get out at the vortex like was promised in the description. If I had to do it again I would take the tour on my first day there to discover what I wanted to see more of. Unfortunately we did this on our second day.
Good tour
Alan_S, Apr 2022
Good informative tour recommend first day or so after arriving to get acclimated for feel of general area
Response from Host, Apr 2022
We're happy you chose to travel with us on the Scenic Sedona Tour. It was our pleasure.
Great experience
Ronald_Y, Apr 2022
Great way to quickly see the geography around Sedona. Our tour guide was experienced and knowledgeable.
More traffic than touring.
Gary_E, Mar 2022
Instead of the nice looking van advertised, a small bus arrived. Half the trip was either loading or unloading other passengers. A whole lot of sitting in traffic.
Tour guide makes all the difference
Vanessa_R, Mar 2022
We had a short time in Sedona & this was ideal to hit a few highlights without having to deal with parking or driving on a busy day. While the group enjoyed the stops our experience was dampened by our guide Sherman in his attitude, sarcasm and overall condescending demeanor when we asked questions or incorrectly answered any of his questions about the area. This is not the kind of experience you would expect from a tour.
Really not great
lulu_b, Mar 2022
It’s true we saw the chapel of the holy cross (spent 25 minutes there), the airport (yes we were specifically driven through the airport carpark and airport!)and the view from the airport. The guide also pointed out and named many of the rocks including bell rock. However, we spent nearly 3/4 hour driving to pick up the other guests. We asked to be dropped off on the way back to avoid retracing our steps again to drop them off! And the other “highlights’” were a drive through the Tlaquepaque shopping area, and a drive through the Main Street in uptown Sedona pointing out shops and restaurants. I’m still a bit stunned that this was part of the tour. There was no Oak creek canyon scenery, the geology was minimal, history ok. But overall definitely not worth the £115 we paid for 2 of us. I wouldn’t recommend. Get a jeep tour if you can.
Response from Host, Mar 2022
Hi Lulu, we're sorry to hear the local tour didn't meet your expectations. This tour is designed to be an overview so that you can see the highlights like Airport Mesa overlook, Chapel of the Holy Cross and other formations plus learn about the opportunities for dining, shopping, arts and more. It's a great way to discover places you'd like to visit in depth. Sedona has much to offer and seeing it all can be a multi day experience. Our guides help you get a taste of the area without having to drive or navigate on your own. We do appreciate the feedback and hope you enjoyed your stay.
Patricia_S, Mar 2022
Knowledgeable guide; Beautiful scenery; Nice to have someone else drive thru the traffic and know where they were going.
Response from Host, Mar 2022
Thanks Patricia! We're glad you enjoyed the Scenic Sedona trip and hope you'll have an opportunity to come back and see us again in the future. Safe travels.

Terrific Tour
Gregory_L, Feb 2022
Gail’s knowledge and warm personality. She made us aware of many interesting things. Gail made the tour interesting and curtailed it to our interests. Gail also gave us a few helpful restaurant tips.
Response from Host, Feb 2022
Thanks for traveling with us. We're so glad Gail made your day fun and informative.
Great stops in places we would have not known about.
Richard_M, Feb 2022
Mark was the perfect guide…. A little funny, a lot of information, right amount of stops. We have been to Sedona a couple times over past 5 years, but never took a tour. Even in a cloudy day…. The views were amazing. Went to some places we would have never gone on our own.
Great tour!
Ivette_E, Dec 2021
Our driver was very well knowledgeable and gave us a great tour of Sedona, stopped at the right times, and was helpful! It was a fun time! Thank you so much!

Nancy_S, Dec 2021
Sedona is breathtaking and Al, the tour guide, was very knowledgeable and personable. The tour covered a wide area with several stops. Really interesting!
