**Booking 3+guests, discounts are available. Simply notify me of your group size BEFORE securing your booking to learn more.***

FYI Summer months require an early start time (7:30am) to accommodate for the intense AZ heat. An early tour will make our time (& hike) more enjoyable overall. Thankfully, if visiting from the east coast, this start time will most likely not pose too big of an issue. :)

Hello I'm Francesca. Having spent several years as a professional hiking/jeep/river tour guide here in Arizona, I have come to discover the many unique & hidden gems Sedona still has to offer (away from the highly trafficked touristy spots). In turn, I am able share such secrets with those whom are interested in a more "where the locals go" type of experience. Sedona, holds many wonders.

In fact, Sedona is the birth place of my people (the Navajo). Growing up as a Native American, our connection to Sedona and the surrounding area runs deep. During our journey, I will take you to a few of my most treasured spots that not only showcase and highlight the beauty of Sedona but also reflect the healing power found in some of her strongest vortex areas.

    I loved this tour. It was a little bit of everything I wanted to experience put into one tour. Some hiking, meditation, vortex energy, and learning about native history, flora and fauna. Francesca is a beautiful soul. A wonderful and knowledgeable guide. I highly recommend this experience.

    Francesa is great. She took us to spots we never would have gone on our own. We really appreciated her knowledge and kindness. Plus she has the best little dog!

    Only have positive things to say about this experience with Francesca. She fit us in last minute, and led a thoughtful and informative tour of 3 different Vortex sites. She clearly knows the area well and shared stories of her own ancestors’ connections to the land. I appreciated her reverence for these sacred sites. She is bright, considerate, and made it a truly special experience for myself and my older mother. I would recommend tours with her to anyone and hope to return!

    Francesca was an amazing guide throughout the whole tour. She had so much knowledge to share with the group and spoke with such passion. It was wonderful to learn more history about the beautiful Sedona landscape, and see spots I would have not known on my own. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting just to learn from Francesca alone.

    Francesca is great. Just don't expect a lot of hiking. She takes you to some very worthwhile places and is an interesting person so that was great.
