Sedona Tour Itinerary

Explore Montezuma Castle National Monument

The Sedona tour from Phoenix & Scottsdale gives you a chance to explore ancient Native American ruins, marvel at spectacular landscapes, and explore the local artisans of Sedona and the surrounding area. This day trip features an ancient Native American dwelling from the Sinagua Tribe that existed along this busy trade route between 1250AD – 1425AD. During our tour, we will explore the ruins at Montezuma Castle National Monument, one of the best-preserved Sinagua cliff dwellings in North America dating back around 1,000 years.

Explore the Red Rocks of Sedona

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. After your memorable day in this famous Red Rock landscape, relax on your two-hour drive back to the Phoenix & Scottsdale area.
