Private Tour Highlights
Private Sedona Tour Itinerary
Dive into the stunning red rock landscapes of Sedona, where you can devote a day to discovering age-old Native American archaeological sites, breathtaking natural wonders, and art galleries filled with an impressive collection of original artworks crafted by both local and national artists.
Explore Montezuma Castle
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.
Explore the Red Rocks of Sedona
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.
You will have options to wander through the many art galleries and shops and enjoy the serene views while grabbing a bite and sipping a glass of wine on one of the town’s many balconies. Shopping not your thing? Add a 4×4 Pink Jeep Tour or Guided Hike, both of which provide opportunities to experience the backcountry of this stunning landscape! 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.
