  • West Sedona Canyon: 3-Hour ATV Tour

    1. West Sedona Canyon: 3-Hour ATV Tour

    Head to the outback of West Sedona Valley on an ATV and see where more than 40 movies have been filmed over the years. After an introductory training, experience this spectacular landscape for around 3 hours on a 30-mile tour. The canyon offers more than 100 miles of trails to choose from, and a guide will customize your tour based on the ages, interests, and skill levels of the people in your group. Take in the stunning views of the Verde Valley from the top of Skeleton Bone Mountain, from a point that's 800 feet above the valley floor. Don't be surprised if you see an antelope running alongside your ATV as you drive along the valley floor!

    It was a great day. Did not need much skill to enjoy the trip. Guide was very good about timing rest stops. He was told many interesting stories. You did get very dusty.

    Our guide was nice and answered questions very well. I was disappointed as I paid for a private tour in the hope that the guide could slightly tailor the tour for our family. We have 3 kids 9, 11 & 13. Our guide didn’t ask them one question or try to interact with them at all. I expected a private guide might try to engage the whole family. You’d think the company could try to match guides with the guests a little better, especially when they pay fir a private experience.

The drive was great, he answered all our questions and much more. We highly recommend on this tour, company and tour guide!
