We enjoyed our scenic Sedona tour with Mark. He shared many facts and stories about the area, as well as giving us tips about great places to visit on our own.
The tour was wonderful! We had a small group of 5 and it was fun getting to know each other. Our tour guide, Mark was wonderful. I learned a lot and I enjoyed his personal and humorous story. I took this tour the first day in Sedona and learned about places I should visit. I recommend this tour with Mark!
My husband and I were picked up directly from our hotel exactly at the time we were told. We received a personal guided tour by Mark for the next 3 hours. He took us to so many different spots and gave us so much history about the area and pointed out all of the different rock formations and local tidbits of info. We stopped at several different spots to take pics as well as the Church of the Holy across which was one of our main interests to stop at while visiting Sedona. Since Mark has been doing this for many years and is also a local he gave us some tidbits of info on where to go at sunset that wouldn’t be overcome with tourists. I highly recommend Mark and his company.

Mark, our tour guide, was a plethora of wonderful info from the geology and history of the area to quirky bits only a local would know. Loved letting someone else do the driving and also liked the small group of 4. We were traveling in an RV so it was an extra bonus to be picked up and delivered to our RV park location.
This tour was perfect. Mark was a great tour guide; friendly, knowledgeable of the area, and accomodating. Pickup and drop off at hotel was great also
We could tell right from the beginning of our tour that Mark really enjoys his work. He began by telling us of the various sites that we would visit and was enthusiastic about each and every location. He was very knowledgeable about the locations and related wonderful and engrossing stories of the historical sites. He told us the history of the original founders of Sedona and also subsequent history of filming and the celebrities that used Sedona of asa quiet and peaceful retreat from Hollywood. He also had knowledge of the vortices in and around the area.. We thoroughly enjoyed Mark and the tour he provided to us.

This was a great overview of Sedona and highlighted several worthy sites. Our tour guide was knowledgeable, very personable and accommodating.
Lance was our tour guide for our tour last Thursday. He was very knowledgeable about the Sedona area. We really enjoyed the beautiful views from the Chapel of the Holy Cross and the Sedona Airport. We would recommend this tour for visitors to Sedona.

Dave gave us a superb and detailed view of Sedona. We learn so much on the tour including how Sedona was named. Mrs. Sedona Arrabella Schmidly who became the namesake we now accept as one of the best tourist capitals of the US. We are grateful to have experienced the sites and culture of Sedona at the very beginning of our visit. Dave is golden.
Thank you Dave,
Our guide, Joe, was fantastic. He was extremely knowledgeable and a fabulous communicator. Explained how all those beautiful red rocks in Sedona came to be, answered all our questions, and made great suggestions about activities to pursue on our own. A perfect tour!
This was a great tour for learning about the Sedona area and seeing some of the most beautiful sights it has to offer. We visited the 5 distinct areas of Sedona, had plenty of wonderful photo opportunities and learned about local geology, wildlife, plant life, and culture. Our guide, Dave, was very knowledgeable, informative and entertaining. All of the people in my group agreed that it was a highlight of our trip. Not to mention, Dave was hilarious! I haven't laughed that much in a while. I would highly recommend this tour.
Taking this tour with an overall view of Sedona highlights was the best way to start our stay in Sedona. Matt was a fantastic tour guide.
Excellent tour! Matt was very knowledgeable about the area and showed us the key sights around Sedona. He was enthusiastic and answered any questions we had. I highly recommend this tour, try to go early during your Sedona vacation.
Matt was our driver and tour directors and he was great. Very informative and answered all the questions the folks on the tour had.
His local insight was great, gave us his favorite places to eat. Would highly recommend taking the tour if you have a few hours in Sedona. You see a lot more when someone else is driving and knows where to go.
