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.

Where you'll be

+1st stop will offer absolutely breath-taking aerial views of the red rocks. This location also offers strong vortex energy (won't give name of location -it's still kind of a "hidden secret" visited mostly by locals)
+2nd location: near the water. It will require us making a short hike to our desired destination. Stunning views creekside.
+3rd location: Medicine wheel located at this stop. Great place for meditation & reflection

Good vibes :) Francesca is super smart, kind, personable, interesting, unique, informative, and fun! Born and raised Arizona. Glad I took this tour for sure. Felt more authentic than the other ones online...she is actually Navajo so her perspective is amazing. Loved hearing the Native American perspective on things and way of life. Like other reviews say, you definitely see places and take paths you wouldn’t have found online as a tourist. I think the tour is great for everyone; whether you are an energy healer master or know nothing about vortices, Francesca can tailor her dialogue to your needs. Make sure you ask questions! She always has super interesting and informative answers. I liked asking about the plants which she knows a lot about. Mahalo Francesca, hope to see you again in the future :) <3

The experience with Francesca was amazing. She was so kind and patient with me when I had an issue that caused me to arrive late. I was nervous that she would be upset that I delayed the tour, but she gave me so much grace that my headache that I gave myself worrying went away quickly after connecting with her. Her knowledge of the area was so impressive. The places she took us to were great and I certainly would not have figured them out on my own. Support a local EXPERT and book with her. You will not be disappointed.

Glad I decided to do this tour with Francesca, she was so down to earth and is a wonderful guide and story teller. Also, her being a local and of Navajo decent made it that much more personable. I had such an amazing time learning and exploring Sedona’s vortex’s. Will recommend to anyone looking for a great experience.

Francesca has such a warm spirit that created such a beautiful experience as she showed us several vortex spots. She gave us a local's point of view and had so much information regarding the history of Sedona, and traditions from the Navajo. My brother and I learned so much from this tour, and she gave us really great recommendations for the rest of our stay on places to see that wouldn't be as crowded. Thank you so much for such an amazing tour, Francesca!

My experience with Francesca was magical and so beyond my expectations. There was a beautiful ease to our meeting from the outset and she shared the beautiful locations with her heart and heritage. She shared spots of meaning that I would not have discovered without her as my guide. I highly recommend Francesca!
