Robert Frost could have used a local guide when he decided to take the road less traveled by, as he discovered only too late that it was patrolled by feral park rangers. Learn how a tour guide makes all the difference with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a two-hour Jeep tour of the Mogollon Rim from A Day in the West in Sedona (up to a $55 value). A Day in the West sells kids' tickets for $40.
A Day in the West's knowledgeable tour guides marshal up to seven adventurous sightseers in fully equipped Jeeps on journeys that reach altitudes of up to 7,000 feet. Leaving from the Sedona facility, Jeeps climb a picturesque pioneer-wagon road, which gradually unveils sweeping views of grizzled rock formations, dazzling landscapes, and clouds close enough to clean ears with. As the vehicles maneuver the Mogollon Rim, passengers can spy local flora such as juniper trees and cacti, fasten their sights on the Arizona landscape stretching out before them, and revel in the fresh high-altitude air. The two-hour tours, which are scheduled daily with multiple departure times, are safe for kids, and, if OK'ed by the group, will accommodate canine sightseers for the cost of a children's admission.
