Multi-Day Tour Itinerary

Day 1 Itinerary

We depart the Phoenix & Scottsdale area between 6:00am – 7:00am and travel through the cacti-covered mountains of the Sonoran Desert. Watch the terrain change to grasslands and high desert as we approach Sedona. Our first major stop will give you a chance to explore ancient Native American ruins at Montezuma Castle National Monument, one of the best-preserved Sinagua cliff dwellings in North America dating back around 1,000 years.

Following our time at Montezuma Castle, the tour will begin to explore the mystique surrounding Sedona with options ranging from cultural and spiritual to adventurous and active. You will enjoy views of the famous red rock features of Bell Rock, Airport Mesa, and Chapel of the Holy Cross. You will also be treated to views of Cathedral Rock, Snoopy Rock, and Submarine Rock, to name a few.

In uptown Sedona, you can explore on foot the many art galleries and shops, get a psychic reading, or enjoy the serenity that Sedona provides with a glass of wine on the balcony. Guests will also have the option of experiencing Tlaquepaque, an outdoor arts & crafts village full of art galleries, craft shops, cobblestone paths & decorative arches.

Shopping and galleries not your thing? Alternate choices available to you as add-ons are either off-road jeep tours or guided hikes. Both options offer a more immersive backcountry experience among the famous Red Rock backdrop. In the afternoon, your guide will check you into your Uptown Sedona hotel for a relaxing night on your own where you will be in close walking distance to shops, galleries, and restaurants!
