First of all, let me state that if you do not do anything else while in Sedona, please do the Pink Jeep Broken Arrow tour. It is so much fun and is a totally amazing experience. For more info, go to www.pinkjeep.com.
We booked the two hour tour at 4pm which in the fall ends at almost sunset. Our driver, Sophia, picked us up at our resort. There were seven passengers altogether, Jim and I, a newly married couple from Pittsburgh, and a set of grandparents and their granddaughter from Ohio. Sophia told us to buckle up and be aware that we were all going to get cozy. The jeeps are pink and are modified for the trail. They have a huge cover over them and once we got off-road, Sophia removed the front window.
We drove along the trail and we immediately hit bumps and stones, we even came to a full stop so that a baby tarantula spider could cross the road in front of us. We rode up into the rock formations around Chapel Rock and Chicken Point. At chicken Point, we got out and walked around. There were some spectacular views from here. Now, it was time to journey back down. I was a little nervous, now. Sophia took us down the side of a rock at 45 degrees. Nerve wracking, yes, but fun? Heck yeah! I cannot do it justice to describe the thrill, the awesomeness, the incredible trip this was. Just do it!

The total time of the tour from the pick up at our hotel to return was two hours. My only complaint is I thought $72 a person is a bit steep for a 2-hour tour. We shared our jeep with another family of 3 and there was plenty of room for six people. We were on paved roads for about 10 minutes and then we were on the dusty dirt roads after that. There is a cover on the jeep to shade you from the sun. I would recommend sunscreen, comfortable clothes and plan on getting dusty. The roads are bumpy and you do have to have your seat belt on, but I wouldn’t consider it a wild ride like the other jeep tours that are available.
The guide drove us to the remains of the Honanki Cliff Dwellings, which was a Native American civilization 700 years ago. There are some walls of the dwellings still remaining and a lot of rock art. There is an easy hike to get to the ruins and the guide did an excellent job explaining the history, rock art, geology, plant life and wildlife of the area. The guide offered to take a family photo, which I thought was very nice. After the hike, the guide offered us water and there were restrooms at the site. It was very informative and we learned a lot about the area. We took the tour on a hot summer day so there wasn’t much wildlife to be seen except for a roadrunner that ran across the dirt road. The scenery is beautiful and it was fun to get out in the backcountry.

Get ready for a ride that will leave you thrilled and your chiropractor thrilled. Seriously great fun but I wouldn't recommend it for someone who had back problems as despite the belting in and hanging on you will get some major jolts as you go up and down the canyons at some angles that will make you wonder when the jeep is going to tip. We took the Broken Arrow tour and in fairness there are less rigorous ones available. We went all out and came back feeling like we'd been horseback riding. The guides are knowledgable and humorous, and the more you actively take part in the tour, the more fun you'll have.
About two hours, $65 for adults. Four-wheel-drive pink jeeps take you up and over the magnificent canyon. There are some moments where you will hold your breath and I'm not going to spoil them for you it's part of the fun. Hold onto your hats though! One member of our party lost his. The guide insisted on going back to get it..but not before another jeep had run it over. You won't have too many photo ops because it's a fast paced trip but the guide will make stops and even take some group photos so everyone gets in the picture. You'll see the canyons intimately, learn about the history of the peoples of this land and geology of the rock formations while having a terrific time. I had to laugh as we were leaving as a little boy said, "Daddy, can we go again?". Daddy looked about as done as could be. Pink Jeeps are located in the center of Sedona, and there are pick-ups at hotels.
