It was awesome! Mike was so friendly, engaging, and knowledgeable. He made an exciting outing the best it could be by sharing his wealth of information about Sedona & the surrounding area plus selecting the best views for photos. My husband & I thoroughly loved the experience. Many thanks!

We loved our experience from start to finish! We were in Sedona on our honeymoon and had been referred to the Pink Jeep Tours by a family member. We were able to get the Jeep to ourselves (which we were informed doesn't happen often) and Dan was very friendly, informative, accommodating (taking pictures for us) and really helped us connect with the culture & history of Sedona! I would definitely do another tour based on our experience with Dan in Sedona, and completely...

Chuck, 28 Feb 2017

I wished it was a little longer, but it was great. It's a great way to see the area if you have a compressed schedule. Tom had a ton of great suggestions, but we couldn't remember 1/2 of them by the time the tour was over. I wished he had noted them someplace so we could have remember them after the tour. Tom was EXCELLENT

John, 28 Feb 2017

We were hesitant that we would be able to enjoy the tour because our children are so young, but we were assured that the tour recommended was the best for our situation and the kids would be entertained. They really impressed me when they installed car seats for them and offered blankets to us all! The tour was excellent and we enjoyed Duff's tips and tricks, his commentary and his humor! He was very attentive to our needs, kept us entertained, helped us take awesome photos...
