Hello I'm Francesca. Having spent several years as a professional hiking/jeep/river tour guide here in Arizona, I have come to discover the many unique & hidden gems Sedona still has to offer (away from the highly trafficked touristy spots). In turn, I am able share such secrets with those whom are interested in a more "where the locals go" type of experience. Sedona, holds many wonders.

In fact, Sedona is the birth place of my people (the Navajo). Growing up as a Native American, our connection to Sedona and the surrounding area runs deep. During our journey, I will take you to a few of my most treasured spots that not only showcase and highlight the beauty of Sedona but also reflect the healing power found in some of her strongest vortex areas.

We loved our tour with Francesca! She is a wonderful storyteller, weaving in her knowledge of the area and its history with her personal experiences. She sets a relaxed, welcoming tone. Her tour was a highlight of our time in Sedona!

I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Francesca. She is very knowledgeable about the location and history. Also, she’s probably taken the best vacation pictures of me then my friends lol

It’s a nice introduction to the vortexes. Host was kind and also helpful in referring us to an amazing vegan friendly cafe called the Chocolate Tree.
