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!

We haven't gone on any of the other tours offered by Pink Jeep, but if we get a chance, we will definitely choose this company again. Pink Jeep also has a Las Vegas tours outlet. Visit them at pinkjeeptours.com.

All tours leave from Sedona and take anywhere between 2 and 11 hours, depending on what you want to see. These jeeps are the Wrangler kind, meaning they’re open to the elements. The top is covered to keep the sun off. They’re also extremely comfortable and unexpectedly spacious, with leather captains chairs to lounge in. (Don’t forget your seat belt!)
The Grand Canyon tour is great, but it literally takes all day. It’s 11 hours and includes lunch and pick-up and drop-off at your hotel. You’ll drive from Sedona, through Flagstaff, and up to the South Rim. You’ll have both a visual tour on the jeep’s DVD player and a wonderful tour guide-narrated tour. You’ll learn about the vegetation, breeds of animals, and the Colorado River’s history. Bring plenty of film, cuz you’ll need it for all the great vantage points you’ll have. Lunch at the El Tovar Hotel is wonderful and plentiful. You won’t leave hungry.
Pink Jeep Tours provides cold drinking water while the jeep is stopped, but I suggest bringing a bottle of water to drink while the jeep is in motion, along with a few snacks, just in case: it IS a long day. (By snacks, I mean nuts or granola bars, because food really isn’t allowed in the jeeps.) Bathroom facilities are far and few between, so don’t drink 8 gallons of water before you leave. I also suggest dressing very comfortably and wearing hiking boots, as there is a small amount of walking involved on any given tour. You’ll be much happier and safer than if you wore sneakers. Bring a hat, and don’t forget your sunglasses and sunscreen. A light jacket that you can tie around your waist is always a good idea. Depending on the time of year, it might be a chilly drive back without one.
Tours start on the hour, and there are bathroom facilities at the launch site as well as a coffee shop. There is a small gift shop, but as I’m sure you can guess that water and film are expensive there. There’s a Walgreen’s down the street for that kind of stuff.
The tour guides are all very informative and fun to have around. I don’t think it’s possible to stump them. The best part is getting away from all the other tourists and getting to go off the major roads and highways, so it’s just you and the wilderness. On the way back from the Grand Canyon, you make a stop at the Cameron Trading Post for souvenirs and a snack, a nice end to a terrific day!

There is a stop on the tour on top of a rock formation to stretch your legs, have a drink of water, and get some great pictures. The overall tour lasted about 90 minutes. If you see one of the Pink Jeep brochures, you will see a picture of a jeep coming down from a rock formation at a 45 degree angle. You will experience the pictured situation on the Broken Arrow tour.
