Are you planning a visit to Sedona, and looking for things to do? One of the great things about this destination is the abundance of outdoor adventure activities, like Jeep tours!
Pink Jeep Tours (Pink Adventure Tours) isn’t the only game in town, but that’s who we chose to book our two adventures.
Why I Chose Pink Jeep Tours
I’ll admit, we didn’t do a ton of advance research before heading to Sedona. We were acquainted with Pink Jeep Tours (Pink Adventure Tours) from a previous trip to Las Vegas when we had entertained the idea of a red rocks desert trip.
We chose them for a few reasons, such as presence and visibility, good reviews and reputation, multiple tour options, and they were super friendly and helpful when we went into the office.
Our decision had nothing to do with the pink vehicles (definitely why I chose Pink Jeep Tours). They’ve been in business for over 60 years, so they must be doing something right, right?
That’s why we booked with Pink Adventure Tours. After having done two adventures with them, we would be happy to book future adventures! They offer tours in Sedona/Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, and the Tennessee Smokies.
The office in uptown Sedona is located at 204 N State Route 89A. We stayed at the Orchards Inn of Sedona (see review), and could easily walk to the Pink Jeep Tours office in about 2-3 minutes.
Booking Your Tour
Book in person, by phone, or online at Pink Adventure Tours website. We booked our tours in person the day we arrived, but because it was last minute we didn’t get our first choice. Certain tours are sought after, and sell out in advance.
Our first choice was the Broken Arrow tour, but it was not available for the entire three days of our stay. Alternatively, we opted for the Diamondback Gulch tour.
Our second tour was the Grand Canyon Premier (approximately 10 hours).
If you pick a must-do tour, my advice is to book online, in advance and avoid disappointment. You’re otherwise ok to wait, as long as you’re flexible, and have backup plans in case tours are all booked.
There are good reasons to wait and book locally, such as weather, especially if you intend to do any hiking as well.
Final thoughts on this are to book as early as possible online or by phone, even if just a few days ahead. This way you can see the weather reports and plan accordingly, avoiding the disappointment of sold-out tours.
What to Expect
Most tours are in the 100-150USD range, per person. The average length of a tour is two hours, give or take an hour. Grand Canyon tours are much longer as it’s a two-hour drive one-way.
Longer tours include a box lunch, and they’ll give you the options.
I wouldn’t carry too many loose items on the Jeep Wrangler tours, you’ll want a small bag (can get quite bumpy at times, tour dependent). String bags work well to carry drink bottles and snacks and your wallet and keys.
You need to arrive a half-hour before your tour. Your guide will round everyone up, explain a few things and get you on your way.
Expertise and Personality
The REAL reason this company is a success! The tour guides are second to none. They are well trained and informed on the areas they serve, and they share an abundance of local knowledge and great stories! I can’t thank Glenn (Diamondback Gulch) and Jaoquin (Grand Canyon Premier) enough. They made our tours a great memory.
I’m not reviewing our tours here, but I will have tour reviews available soon for Diamondback Gulch and Grand Canyon Premier.
