While taking a break for lunch, we began a conversation with a family who had taken a Pink Jeep Tour. They had just returned from visiting ancient Indian ruins and couldn't say enough wonderful things about it. Since my husband and I are both very interested in archaeology, we booked the tour immediately after lunch and scheduled one for 3:00 p.m. that same day.
Being April, the open sided jeep made for a cold drive 15 miles outside of town to the Honanki Indian ruins. Thankfully, thick woven Indian blankets were provided in the jeep and we were able to wrap up to keep the chill off.
We bumped along a dirt road further and further until we reached a parking area with security fence. The tour company keeps an eye on the ruins and guides rotate as security for the site.
Our guide certainly knew the history of this ancient culture, which made all the difference! Further tips will reveal what we saw and learned.
Pink Jeep Tours charged $72 per person for the 2 1/2-3 hour tour of the ancient Honanki ruins.
Several times we have enjoyed the
afternoon out in the desert ....
A "Jeep Tour" through the red rocks
around Sedona is well worth the trip.
There are many tour jeeps available
that are reasonable and well worth
the experience for a couple hours.
Take a jeep tour in the surrounding area.
We used Pink Jeep Tours and we LOVED them, but there are several companies that do them. Basically you get to go places that cannot be reached by standard autos. We did the "Broken Arrow" tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and kept me from backing into cacti! See the travelogue for more pictures!
For sure take a pink jeep tour--do the broken arrow trip. It takes about two hours and you will be taken on a crazy off roading ride through the famous red rocks. It cost about 70$ but is worth it. Ask to have the driver Paul. He is amazing and full of knowledge about the area.
Don't eat too much mexican food or drink too much tequila before the tour. YOu wouldn't want to make a mess. : )
The original Sedona tour company, Pink Jeep offers you a wonderful ride through the red rocks, their tour guides are incredibly knowledgeable and great fun to spend a few hours with. You'll see some amazing sites and you'll learn a gread deal from your guide.
Go Offroading! PINK Jeep Tours offers some great offroading tours.. from mild to rough..The price isn't too bad and it's a great way to see the red rock formations up close. Plus, there's some really awesome views...
Guided Jeep Tours up through the canyons and off the beaten path to watch the sunset on the mountain side. A few to choose from, but, Sedona Red Rock Jeep Tours and Sedona Adventures 4x4 Tours, both showed us an excellent time...not rushed around like cattle. VERY FRIENDLY AND INFORMATIVE
It's so beautiful and exciting in the town as well as in the hills and country side.
There are several jeep tours in Sedona that will take you on a thrill ride up to the beautiful red rock canyons. We took a one and a half hour tour with Pink Jeep Tours. OK, so they hadn't got round to painting our jeep pink yet but that didn't matter coz we had the lovely Brenda as our guide and she pointed out so many interesting rocks formations and plants and showed us so many breathtaking view that we completely forgot that our jeep was green.
The drivers on these tours know so much about the history, geology, wildlife and other interesting stuff about Sedona that it really should be on everyones 'must do' list.
There are many tour companies in Sedona. So, if you wanted to experience the guided tours, make sure to have the pink jeep tours!
It cost about $45.00.
We did one of the Pink Jeep Tours that went back to an old indian settlement. This is an excellent way to see the hard to reach places in Sedona and I recommend it highly.
