Sedona is magical. Mesmerizing beauty. Unique like no other place. And we’re going to show it to you in grand VIP style. Its scenic glory. It’s elegance. Its rustic old west. Its ancient history. Towering red rock buttes. Shimmering Oak Creek. The lushness of Oak Creek Canyon. Where peace of mind and tranquility could have originated. The Grande Finale will be the amazing Sedona sunset.
Chapel of The Holy Cross. Drive to the top of the Chapel Rock where you will experience the breathtaking natural grandeur of the panoramic scenes. The interior of the Chapel is a masterpiece of design.. Regardless of religious affiliation or your spiritual connection, or none at all, the dramatic views will energize a greater sense of peace and tranquility.
Montezuma Castle. A sightseeing drive through scenic Village of Oak Creek with views of Bell Rock as we head to Montezuma Castle Cliff Dwelling ruins. Get a feel of what life may have been like for the Sinagua Indians over a thousand years ago. They built these “apartment style” dwellings on the cliff sides. The Singaua mysteriously disappeared in about 1425 AD.
Jerome Arizona, America’s most active ghost town. Once known as the most wicked place in the wild west. Founded in 1876 as a mining town. Home to gunslingers that hung out in saloons, gambling halls and bawdy houses. Jerome died when the mines depleted. It became a ghost town holding secrets of years’ past. Hippies brought it back to life in the 60s. Today it’s home to artists, writers and musicians. A mecca of artisans who refuse to let the town die.
Experience the strange and bazaar. Jerome sits high atop Cleopatra Hill overlooking the Verde Valley. Many of the well-preserved original buildings still stand. Storefronts and galleries line switch-backing streets. Walk around. Sit at an outdoor patio. Have a quick bite to eat (not included). Perhaps a glass of wine while you enjoy the panoramic views of Sedona in the distant.
A scenic 30 minute drive to the edges of Boynton Canyon. Photo-taking of the high canyon walls as they stand guard of the Secret Wilderness that lies on the other side. One of the most beautiful spots in Sedona AZ. The New Age group believe the area harbors a power vortex of spiritual energy.
Ascend Oak Creek Canyon to Indian Gardens. Oak Creek Canyon is rated one of the Top Most Scenic Drives in America. Experience the dramatic landscape change into thick forest with back-drops of towering cliffs as the drive winds along Oak Creek. We stop at Indian Gardens that was once the agricultural grounds of ancient prehistoric peoples. Visit the Navajo Indian open air marketplace of authentic Indian made crafts and jewelry. Grab an ice cream. Admire the beauty.
The Highlight of the Tour. Late evening signals the soon to arrive most beautiful sunset you may ever experience. Watching the sun sink brings a certain calm. A magical peace of mind. As sunlight fades, brilliant colors expose. Not only to the west, but to the east as well. Looking into the setting sun is simply beautiful, but the golden glows cast on eastern buttes are the real dreams of photographers.
We take you to the best places to view the sunsets. The progressive sun-setting experience beginning just before dusk covers about 1.5 hours of the total tour. Spectacular scenes envelope in both west and east directions.
As the sun begins its low western path, we head to scenic Red Rock Loop Road to view the initial phases of the setting sun. The glow cast from the west to the east onto Cathedral Rock is amazing. If lucky there will be some fluffy white clouds that will absorb dramatic colors.

Drive up to Airport Mesa for the Grand Sunset Finale. The stellar vista point high above panoramic views near one of the strongest vortexes in the Sedona area. As the sun begins its descent below the horizon catch the golden glows on Coffee Pot Rock and Thunder Mountain. If you like, pour a glass of wine (bring your own) and toast to the brilliant colors as they disappear behind the western horizon.
