This was such a fun time and we learned so much about the back story of Sedona. Before we were even done with the first tour we were already raving about it to everyone we spoke with. I’ve already started looking at other self driving tours I want to create our next trip. Definitely a great purchase!

I found places I would not have known about. It wasn’t easily user friendly and took a number of irritating trials and errors to figure out the most effective way to use it and not miss anything. But overall it was a pleasant addition to our time in Sedona

Gave a good overview of all area attractions with great inside tips and historical background. Wish it was easier to resume the location you left off at when trying to get back on the app. Overall great product

We loved being able to see everything at our own pace. Sometimes we stay longer at different vistas and at other times stayed on the track. We loved the freedom and never felt rushed.

It was a great way to see many of the sites in Sedona.
