Explore the red rocks, feel the energetic Vortexes, taste local wines and beers or find beautiful art work
The otherworldly red rocks of Sedona have captured the attention of ranchers, settlers, movie makers, healers, artists, adventurers and tourists for centuries. Within Arizona, Sedona is the second most visited destination, exceeded only by the Grand Canyon.
Our tour will begin at your hotel and we will travel north for approximately 2-hours through the Sonoran Desert and up onto the cooler plateau region. After dropping into the Verde Valley, we will 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 town has to offer. Your trip will be tailored to your interests whether those be hiking, exploring the vortexes, shopping for fine art or souvenirs, dining, or wine tasting.
Sedona will be one of the most amazing places you have ever encountered and this tour will leave you with life long memories!
I will pick you up at your hotel at 7:00 in the morning. We will drive up to Sedona to the trail. We will hike thru the morning before stopping for lunch on the trail at a scenic spot. We will then continue until our hike is complete, tour Sedona as time permits and then we will return to Phoenix.
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.
