This is a Sedona tour company that offers the full range of possibilities, including all the classics and some very unique offerings.

Our favorite is their Full Moon Expedition.

The vibe of this company is just good, plain fun. Very "down-to-earth," and easy going. And they know the territory as if it's all their own back yard. (Seriously. They could probably guide you with their eyes closed.)

Here's what you can expect from the owner, Jim Reich: "...it's your tour, I'm just an interpreter, call me an extension of the red rocks or a limb of the trees in freestanding motion. I'll show you as much or as little... [as you like]. I would be delighted to customize an adventure to met your precise criteria."

Traveling with your dog? Pooch pals are welcome to join along while hiking in Sedona with these guides!

Rates are about $35 per hour, per person.
