Avoid this one like the plague!
, Jul 2022
Gee, where to begin? This tour was such a waste of time and money, period! We spent most of the time picking up and dropping off guests than the actual tour alone! In addition, we spent a lot of our valuable time stuck in traffic, so by the time we get to see the attractions, the driver/tour guide gave us only a few minutes, which were not even enough to take good pictures! The bus was also very hot and the driver/guide very grouch and so difficult to understand! It seems that he slurred his words and that he didn't wanted to be there. Anyway, save your money on this one if you have your own car. Believe me, you'll be able see (and enjoy) a lot more of Sedona on your own without a single penny to spend--other than on gas, of course!

We are proud of our tours and our team and regret when guests don't have the best experience. With that said, avoid like the plague is a substantial warning. One would wonder why such a headline would be delayed 4 months. Let's address some of your issues: We are one of the few companies offering this tour that offer door to door service. Guests are not required to drive, deal with parking etc. to enjoy our tour. A feature we provided to you. We offer a private tour for guests wanting/needing this tour without the elements of a group tour. The tour is conducted under the duration of the tour. The guide is describing and narrating even while pickup, drop offs, and traffic stops are occurring. The traffic was exceptional as spring break is the busiest week of the year. We are fortunate that so many wonderful people come to experience the area at this time. You selected to come at this time along with these many other guests to our fair city. If you had been in your own vehicle, you would still have dealing with the traffic issue or in fact being a part of it. We continually receive great ratings on our tours (please see review directly below this one). We stand behind our guide and our tours but your commentary has been duly noted.

Driver was great! Van was clean. Sights were beyond words! Our favorite was the church built into the mountain.
Don’t waste your time and money

This trip was a waste of time. It was too long and felt like an aimless drive around Sedona. The only 2 places of interest we stopped (and the 2 main reasons I booked) were Chapel of the Holy Cross and Airport Mesa overlook. We were only at each for approximately 15-20 mins. So, out of a 2.5 hour drive only :30-:45 minutes were quality.

What started out with a minor scheduling bump became such a wonderful day. Jo Gebo was a fabulous tour guide and we highly recommend him. We thank you very much for a great experience in Sedona.
Amazing views with personal details

It was all great but the Holy Chapel Cross and the Airport Overlook were amazing. Our tour guide Al was awesome too!

Sedona Area Tour

Very enjoyable excursion. Guide was friendly and knowledgeable. Van was clean and comfortable. Would recommend this tour as an introduction to Sedona with a follow up afterwards to specific places of interest.
Stunning Sedona!
, Sep 2021
This tour conveniently picked us up right at our hotel. The beauty of Sedona was enhanced by the information provided by our driver.

Joe was a fantastic tour guide. Very knowledgeable as well as funny. He made sure everyone was comfortable and answered all our questions. Great guy!

We had an amazing time learning about the history and area of Sedona. Joe was very knowledgeable and made us feel at home during our tour! Thanks for a great day!
Al made this tour amazing
, May 2021
So let me begin by saying that this tour is great if you’re looking for two beautiful photographic stops and a nice scenic tour. This is not a hiking tour of Sedona but rather an informative scenic trip of Sedona. I personally loved my experience. Al my tour guide was absolutely hilarious. He was also very informative and told the information in a manner that made it easy to retain and wasn’t dry in the sense it would lull you to sleep! I highly recommend this tour but I can only recommend it if Al is your guide!

Sedona Tourist Overview
, May 2021
This tour was informative. Our guide, Al was very knowledgeable. He gave historical, cultural, and geographical information. He not only gave his prepared speech, but he also answered questions that may or may not have been part of the plan. Al answered one question with a general answer & would not be pinned to giving an exact percentage of which he was unsure. How wonderful to have a genuine guide instead of a know it all! Also was also good at throwing in a bit of humor that added to his talk. Our vehicle was clean and comfortable.
, May 2021
Our guide Al was very knowledgeable as well as funny. Took us places I never would have found on my own. Highly reccommend.
It was FUN!

Our tour guide was very kind, knowledgeable and extremely funny during our trip to Sedona! I enjoyed my trip with this specific tour guide!
Great experience
, Mar 2021
This tour was my first introduction to Sedona. I was picked up at the hotel right on time. The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. Small group atmosphere made it more private and personal, it was a great experience for me to see the beauty of Sedona.
Somewhat disappointed
, Feb 2021
The guide was very knowledgeable about the area and the history of Sedona however did not take us to the areas listed in the ad. The stops we stopped at were Holy Cross Church and Airport Loop Dr. The other two areas were Coffee Pot and Tlaquepaque Arts Village. These he did not even mention and we drive right the Art Village.

Great Tour Guide

Lil Joe our guide was amazing. He was a wealth of knowledge about the area and was great to hang out with. I highly recommend this tour.
Well Worth It!!
, Jan 2021
The information and sights on the tour were amazing. Our guide Joe was incredibly warm, friendly, and super knowledgeable. He was great! Great way to see a lot in a little time.
Informative short tour
, Dec 2020
We enjoyed our tour of Sedona. We traveled to Sedona for a few short hours and was able to take this tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and shared stories of Sedona the entire tour. They provided water and took special precautions during this time. If you would like to learn about the Sedona area, this would be a great tour for the day.
Wonderful Sedona Tour
, Nov 2020
Lil Joe was very professional, he was very knowledgeable about Sedona. He has a great personality and very pleasant, we had a great time.
Beautiful and Informative Tour
, Jun 2020
We booked the 2:30 pm tour and initially thought it would be too short to see everything. We were wrong! The pace was great and our tour guide Lil Joe was exceptional. Since our group of three were the only passengers, we were able to have a private tour but at the lower group rate. Lil Joe was very informative, engaging and extremely courteous. He arrived at our hotel a few minutes early allowing for an on-time start. He frequently offered us water and was extremely attentive by always assisting us in and out of the van. He had a very thorough knowledge of the area and his love for the job was very evident. His delivery was clear and he was very responsive to all of our questions along the way. His jokes were pretty funny too. I strongly recommend this tour if you are interested in learning about the area and seeing the sites.
