Sedona Arizona Tours


Sedona tours by Great VenturesOur Sedona Tours around and over the world famous red rocks of Sedona allow you to make the most of your stay while you're visiting Sedona. Nestled within red rock canyons and formations just below the Mogollon Rim, (southern edge of the Colorado Plateau) Sedona has been voted #1 of The 10 Most Beautiful Places in America. After millions of years of inland seas and lakes depositing their sediment, in combination with the raising of the Colorado Plateau, the stage was set for the erosion process that would form the world famous red rock canyons and formations for which Sedona, Arizona has come to be known.


Early Sinagua Indians settled in the outlying areas of what is now Sedona, but the more recent Apache Indians of Arizona began to settle in Oak Creek Canyon, most notably in the area now know as Indian Gardens.  J.J. Thompson and his family were the first whites in Arizona to settle in the Sedona area in the 1870's, taking over the area he called Indian Gardens, because of the remnants of the gardens of beans, corn and squash that were found when the Thompson's arrived. Others followed, mostly settling into the Oak Creek Canyon area of Sedona, where water was plentiful, and ideal for raising orchards of apples and peaches. Ranchers also moved in, and by 1902, it was T.C. Schnebly that began the first Post Office in the area, and the area officially became known as Sedona, Arizona, after T.C. Schnebly's wife.
