Your knowledgeable, friendly guide will narrate the entire experience.

Stretch your legs and take a few photos before heading back across the bridge to Uptown Sedona where you will have some free time for souvenir shopping.
Time to Red Rock State Park next to Oak Creek for a picnic lunch. The breathtaking views across the flowing Oak Creek to Cathedral Rock is the most photographed spot in Sedona.
