Jeep Tours

sedona-top-ten-jeep-tours-safari-jeep-arizonaLet’s face it, there’s one main reason people come to visit Sedona: the beautiful Red Rocks. Sure, you can see them looking out your car window as you drive through Oak Creek Canyon, but it’s not the same as being right up next to (or even on top of) them. The best way to see them is to let an experienced guide take you on a tour that we guarantee you will never forget.

Sedona’s Jeep Tours are world famous. In fact Jeeps have become so synonymous with Sedona that Jeep films many of of their commercials here. There are several Jeep tour companies operating in Sedona. We recommend you choose one with a commitment to education and preservation of the environment as well as their having knowledgeable guides will tell you all about the local plant life and wildlife as well as how the rock formations came to be. Our favorite is Arizona Safari Jeep Tours.

The number one Jeep tour we recommend is Arizona Safari Jeep Tours Mogollon Rim Run and Rim Run Supreme.  These incredible tours have some of the most amazing Red Rock views in Sedona, and plenty of adventure as your Jeep climbs up to over 6500 feet in elevation up a 120 year old Wagon Trail.

Just west of Sedona is Clarkdale, home of the Verde Canyon Railroad. Their wilderness train takes you on a 4-hour tour through the Verde Canyon. In addition to the Red Rocks and clear waters, you will have a chance to see local wildlife, including nesting Bald and Golden eagles. Everyone here agrees that this tour is much better than certain other Northern Arizona Train rides. Make sure to make your reservation early, because they book up fast.
