IS IT FOR YOU?  

If you’ve never experienced a balloon ride, it’s time.

BALLOON RIDE:  Seeing the landscape below from a balloon is nothing like anything else.  Hanging suspended from a balloon as you travel over the Earth below is breathtaking.  You become part of the landscape, instead of blasting through it.  Drifting with the breeze conceals you from everything below, giving you a sneak peak, without disturbing everything around you.

Balloon flight is unlike anything else, period.

  • HIKING:   You’ll have several choices, from easy to moderate.  Devils Bridge in one of our favorites.  about 4 miles round trip, the natural stone bridge is worth every step.  Huckaby Trail is classified as *moderate”, and gives you the opportunity to see Oak Creek up close and personal.
  • WINE TASTING:  The Sedona area is becoming Internationally known for its wineries.  You can spend an entire day traveling from winery, to winery, but we only have a few hours.  Todd’s personal favorite is Page Springs Cellars.  It’s hard to beat tasting wine while you relax next to Oak Creek.
  • JEROME:  Mining left Jerome in 1953, and for a period it fell into disrepair.  Today its known for incredible food, art galleries, and quirky shops.  Plus, the view is worth the drive in itself.
  • TLAQUEPAQUE:  Your unforgettable Sedona experience must include spending time at internationally renowned Tlaquepaque (pronounced T-la-keh-pah-keh), Sedona Arizona’s Arts & Crafts Village, on of the best things to do in Sedona. Nestled beneath the shade of the sycamores on the banks of beautiful Oak Creek in Sedona, Tlaquepaque is the most distinctive Sedona shopping experience to be found in the Southwest

Helicopter Tour Option

Will appear as option @ checkout

Our Advantage – We tailor your helicopter tour around your ground tour, MAXIMIZING your experience.

Our Approach – Todd setout to perfectly blend the ground tour with the helicopter adventure, making BOTH BETTER.  

We’ve discovered that by seeing the remote overlooks FIRST (East end of the National Park), it elevates your helicopter flight to yet another level.  Now when your Pilot points out a landmark below, we’ve already seen it from the ground.

We actually modify your ground tour to heighten your helicopter tour experience.  Rather than go into the Park through the busy South entrance, we’ll swing around the East entrance.  Starting at the East entrance allows us to start with the remote overlooks, ending at the Grand Canyon airport.

The Other Guys – The odds are someone in your mixed group isn’t doing the helicopter tour, tossing a wrench in everyone’s day.  You’ll be dropped off at the airport, while the rest go into the park.  Both groups end up waiting, wasting valuable time.

Sunset and Stargazing Option

Will appear as option @ checkout

The National Park Service has announced that the Grand Canyon National Park has officially received its International Dark Sky Park certification. 

Our Approach – We adjust our pick-up time, so you leave later.   

SUMMER: From the Phoenix area, Approx. 1PM pick-up (rather than 7AM), 12:30AM return.  Sedona area, 3PM (rather than 9AM), 11:30PM return.  

WINTER:  From the Phoenix area, Approx. 11AM pick-up (rather than 7AM), 10:30PM return.  Sedona area, 1PM (rather than 9AM), 11:30PM return.  

todds amazing tours arizona toursDeparture times VARY throughout the year.  We will contact you by email with your actual departure time.

While there are several places to take in the dark, glowing sky, we focus on the more remote overlooks.  Typically, they’re less crowded.

While the entire Park is “Dark Sky” certified, we’ve found that the further away from the historic village, the better.  Many of the remote overlooks don’t have a light bulb within 20 miles.  However, it’s incredible the intense glow that can emanate from a cell phone… 

The remote overlooks offer seclusion, which is perfect for stargazing.

The Other Guys – Simply, most tour companies don’t offer a tour after dark.  Also, the mixed group tours depend on “seat volume”.  Simply, filling seats.  While AMAZING, most visitors want to go during the day.

Of course your family/group isn’t restrained by these limitations.
