Arizona’s indigenous history tells a fascinating tale during our Ancient Ruins Tour. This unique archeological adventure is an up-close look at a time when the Sinagua people called this area home, dating back to the 12th century.
Your Certified Interpretive Guide will meet you in Sedona at the Pink® Jeep® Tour Plaza. Get ready: our custom open-air Pink® Jeep® Wrangler is about to take you on a ride you’ll never forget. Wear comfortable shoes, as there is a 45-minute walk on the tour.
The mystery of the Sinagua people will surround you as you visit primitive ruins where they lived and worked from 600 AD until the 1400s. Little is known about the customs of the Sinagua, but pictographs and petroglyphs offer a glimpse into their ancient lifestyle.
During your visit, you’ll see the 700-year-old cliff dwellings were used for living spaces, community gatherings and burial grounds. Learn how they farmed and hunted, their complicated trading system—and how the society mysteriously vanished. The quandary of the Sinagua has yet to be solved.
At the end of the tour, you’ll journey back through the forest and into Sedona, where the rich legacy of Arizona’s native history lives on. No matter which Pink® Jeep® Tour you take next, you’ll never forget the mystique of this ancient civilization.

Miguel was just...beyond words, good. So informative, so engaging, and so respectful of the site, of its history and its present politics, and of the mysteries and unknowns of history and culture. He made it come alive, and let all of us participate in the shared history of humanity...AND he played a flute, bringing it all to life in such a visceral and unexpected way. Stellar!!
Very interesting. This is my second time taking a Pink Jeep tour. The first was a few years ago and was the Scenic Rim tour. This one was less "off road adventure" but much more informative. Both are excellent tours but cater to different tastes.
A beautiful ride, even without a tour. The tour was very interesting, and Madie was great with the kids and the adults.
An awesome tour, very informative and fun!
