Day Tour to Sedona Red Rock Country and Native American Ruins from Phoenix
From US$138.99
Overview
Escape the heat and hustle of Phoenix for the day and take in Arizona's incredible red rock landscape on this on this guided day trip from Phoenix. You’ll explore ancient Native American ruins at either Tuzigoot or Montezuma Castle National Monument and then tour the brightly colored sandstone formations in Sedona’s Red Rock State Park including a visit to the Chapel of the Holy Cross, a modern church built right into the red rocks of Sedona designed by a student of Frank Lloyd Wright.
What to Expect
Your scenic Sedona day trip begins with pick-up from your Phoenix hotel. First stop is a tour of ancient Native American ruins at either Montezuma Castle or Tuzigoot National Monument. This area of Arizona is rich with Native American history and you'll tour what is left of these ancient civilizations while also learning about Native American culture from your local guide.  

Next stop is a tour of the Chapel of the Holy Cross, a modern church built directly into the red rock cliffs of Sedona which many locals claim to contain some sort of energy vortex. You'll also visit Sedona’s popular red rock formations such as Bell Rock and Courthouse while also leaving plenty of time to browse the new-agey shops and galleries notorious in this town of spiritual healing.

Your Sedona tour ends with a drop-off back in Phoenix.

Poor program, great tour guide
