Excellent tour guide who made the tour informative as well as fun packed. We were able to get to places that wouldn’t be easy on our own. A great memory!

Tour guide was rambling. In the end he decided to pitch the group about a book he was writing and how we should buy it.

Jim's tour was very informative and pleasant. A low-key scenic drive up the canyon and around Sedona. Lots of interesting stories about the pioneers who settled the area. Highly recommended.

Interesting tour but too personal

My husband and I were a little disappointed with this tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and took us to the hilights listed on the tour description but he spent SO MUCH time talking about himself- his own past, opinions and abilities- and not much about Sedona itself. We expected more information about the history and attractions of Sedona and less about the tour guide himself. Beautiful sights though, and when we stopped he gave us plenty of time to stop and take pictures.

Wouldn’t recommend

As advertised, we saw the Chapel, Airport Mesa, and a drive-by commentary on sites as we drive past them. Our guide rattled on non-stop about irrelevant things. Several times (while on the road) she slowed the van to a crawl while she talked. Her watch was off; the Heritage Museum was closed when we got there.

This tour was absolutely amazing! I became very concerned in the beginning due to a miscommunication however, the situation was quickly and more than adequately rectified. Our tour guide Sheldon, was very knowledgeable of the area as well as accommodating and patient, being that I was traveling with my elderly mother. This was our first tour of the day . It exceeded our expectations so much that their really wasn't a need for the other tour we booked. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting the Sedona area. Amazing!

Mark was very knowledgeable about the history of the area - fact and fiction alike. He picked us up at our hotel for a private tour. We did not feel rushed at all the sites we stopped at and he went over the time allotted to give us a complete tour. Will definitely recommend him and will call him when I return to the area.
