What people are saying about Chapel of the Holy Cross

I traveled with my sister on a Sedona/Grand Canyon Tour which was beyond our expectations. A bucket list item for both of us, now fulfilled due to our incredible tour guide, Lizette, at the Arizona Scenic Tour Company! (Note: The question below about who I traveled with didn't provide an option to select "a" family member, only family with small children or family with teenagers. There should be an option for family member(s), therefore I listed mine as traveling with a friend as I can consider my youngest sister, a friend.)

This tour is a great way to visit Sedona & the Grand Canyon if you don’t have a long visit. The small group is perfect because the guide can alter stops according to your interests. Our guide, Noel was very knowledgeable about the area. Sit back and relax while someone else worries about the driving and where to go next!

Lizette was an excellent and extremely informed guide. She shared a great deal of information and answered all our questions. She gave us options for stops and length of stops. She was accommodating to our ‘old ladies’ limitations. I would certainly recommend her and Arizona Scenic Tours to others.

Great guided tour! Eddie was a wealth of knowledge. He thought of everything—water, bathroom breaks, locations for the best photos. Highly recommend!

I was able to see parts of Sedona that I wouldn't have known about and the guide's knowledge of the area was extensive.
