Spend 2 days exploring all that Sedona has to offer
Within Arizona, Sedona is the second most visited place, exceeded only by the Grand Canyon. Unfortunately most people simply drive through and do not take the time to explore the many facets of this magical destination.
After a 2-hour journey through the Sonoran Desert and up onto the cooler plateau region we will drop into the Verde Valley and get our first glimpse of the stunning vistas that are the hallmark of Sedona's landscape.
Having lived in Sedona for 7 years, I am intimately familiar with not only the most popular sites, but also the more remote, hidden gems that the area has to offer. With two full days, your trip will be tailored to your interests whether those be hiking, 4-wheel drive off-roading, shopping for fine art or souvenirs, dining, or wine tasting. We will have plenty of time to do it all!
Sedona will be one of the most amazing places you have ever encountered and this tour will leave you with life long memories!
Our trip begins at 7:00 in the morning at our mutually agreed upon pick-up location. We will arrive in the Sedona area by 9 am and have a full morning of sight seeing, hiking or other activities prior to lunch. After lunch we will continue our exploration of the area until we check into our hotel and have dinner. After a good nights sleep, we will have breakfast and have another full morning of mutually agreed upon activities. If we want to go off-road, the morning of the second day will be for that. After lunch we will have until 3 pm to visit any remaining must see locations or do last minute shopping. We will depart Sedona around 3 pm and be back in Phoenix approximately 5 pm.
Special gear recommendations: I strongly suggest wearing a hat, sun glasses and sun screen. Good hiking shoes and a day pack for water and lunch is also necessary.
