Private Day Tour of Sedona from Phoenix
Immerse yourself in the crimson cliffs of Sedona and spend a day exploring ancient Native American ruins, gorgeous natural formations, and art galleries bursting with incredible original pieces made by local and national artists. Your first stop of the day will be at Montezuma Castle National Monument, a multistoried Puebloan cliff dwelling, which is built into the rock-covered ridges and offers incredible examples of what Sinagua architecture was like from 1250 – 1425 AD. After visiting the national monument, your tour moves further into the desert so that you can experience the red-rock geological wonders up close. Stop to see the towering Bell Rock, the expansive Airport Mesa, and the Chapel of the Holy Cross. This Roman Catholic church was built directly into the center of a massive butte, thereby tying the manmade with the natural in a magnificent combination you must see to believe. We may also stop to view Cathedral Rock, Snoopy Rock, and Submarine Rock. Leave the desert behind as you head toward Sedona, where you can wander through the many art galleries and shops, get your fortune told by a psychic, and enjoy the serene views while sipping a glass of wine on one of the town’s many balconies. When it’s time to depart, the amazing orange, yellow, and red vistas you’ve been seeing all day are sure to have imprinted themselves forever in your mind.
