For almost 30 years, Red Rock Western Jeep Tours has been carrying groups up and down the sun-warmed crags of the Sedona canyons in jeeps and helicopters and on horseback. Each means of exploring has advantages, whether it's the feeling of cresting a ridge on a trusty horse or the sweeping panoramic view provided by a helicopter. The tours, which can be customized for groups of 2–200 people, might visit places of natural beauty or locations of mystical importance in Sedona folklore. The company also has a certification from Disney to conduct "Adventures by Disney" programs, and no matter which tour patrons are on, they'll be led by an experienced guide.
Grapes don't usually grow in the desert's dry heat, but the owners of Oak Creek Vineyard and Winery found a way. They nourish vines of syrah, merlot, zinfandel, and chardonnay grapes with pure water from an aquifer 425 feet beneath the earth's surface. Moisture isn't everything, though; western Arizona's brilliant sunlight helps the grapes to develop ideal sugar content. The combination of warm days and chilly nights further brings flavor to life beneath the grapes' dusk-purple skins.
White curtains swirl around the outdoor patio of an adobe tasting room, where visitors pair sips of wine with meats and cheeses. A jaunt through the grounds reveals views of flowering cacti and tumbleweeds wearing pearls on the sun-browned hills.
When touring picturesque Arizona, it's important to be able to see what you're exploring. That's why Great Venture Tours outfits their mini-coach buses with large windows that afford guests unobstructed views of Sedona's red rocks, Navajo Country's Monument Valley, and the Grand Canyon's grand canyon. Travelers can also take tours on trains and river rafts. As they soak in majestic vistas, knowledgeable and entertaining guides regale them with historical facts, geological tidbits, and folklore.
The crew at Arizona Helicopter Adventures escorts passengers on bird's-eye-view tours of the red rocks of Sedona and boasts a sterling safety record. Traveling twosomes board Jet Ranger helicopters, which delve between Secret Canyon's 2,000-foot walls before coasting over Secret Mountain and Mogollon Rim, where they can feed starved eyes with memorable vistas. Pairs can snap pictures during the descent into Boynton Canyon and while hovering over the vast Sinagua Indian ruins. All of the pilots at Arizona Helicopter Adventures have past experience flying copters for the U.S. military, DPS law enforcement agencies, or in Arnold Schwarzenegger movies, which, like this tour, will usually last 22–24 minutes.
This tour company spotlights Sedona's stunning red-rock formations and other high desert landscapes during family-friendly trolley tours.
