Admire towering red rock formations, ancient canyons and native American art in the Honanki Heritage Site, which dates back at least 700 years. Learn about the history and wildlife of this amazing landscape on your choice of a tour to see the ruins only, or a tour that also includes Diamondback Gulch. Several departure times make this easy to fit into your sightseeing schedule in Arizona's Red Rock Country.

The trip was amazing and Sean was the best tour guide. He was very knowledgeable about the history and cactus plant life. I wouldn't recommend going in July because it was very hot if you're sensitive to the heat.

Ancient ruins in Sedona

We had Tracey as our guide for the Sedona trip to the ancient ruins. It was about 2 1/2 to 3 hour trip. She was a great guide, knowledgeable about Sedona, wildlife and the history of the Indian settlements. She was very excited about the sights we saw. The trip was a nice combination of on road, dirt road with some walking to the Indian ruins. The ruins were amazing — lots of signs of how they lived hundreds of years ago, and the art work they left behind is fascinating. The trip to the ruins was beautiful also, since Sedona is just one great “oh wow” moment after another. The only downside was the Jeep was kind of small...only 4 of us too.
