Jeeps make ideal tour vehicles due to their open sides, intrepid off-road capabilities, and extensive knowledge of the best local gas station happy hours. See wild sights in style with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a two-hour Old Bear Wallow Jeep tour from Red Rock Western Jeep Tours in Sedona (up to a $59 value).
Red Rock guides steer adventurers in sturdy, open-air 4x4s over Sedona’s slopes, rugged backcountry, and below the volcanic Mogollon Rim. The jeeps jump off the beaten path to climb through Bear Wallow Canyon on a rough route once traveled by early stagecoaches blazing the frontier and fleeing packs of grizzlies after capturing their flag. Atop canyon ridges and desert landscapes, sightseers can photograph striking vistas of Sedona, including Oak Creek Canyon lying 2,000 feet below. As the vehicle trundles along, guides regale guests with stories of the early pioneers who preceded them and named everything after their mothers.
Rock Jeep tours leave from uptown Sedona, where jeepers can shop for authentic Native American jewelry at a number of mercantile posts. Visitors whose whistles have been whet by historical facts on the tour can continue the adventure by exploring the Sedona Heritage Museum or interrogating a nugget of gold.
Though Red Rock Jeep Tours sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
