Wine Tours of Sedona did not happen overnight. Many years ago, 2004 to be exact, Sedona Hiking Adventures was in the formation stage. With the help of long-time friends, Adam Wayne and Robin Blakey, I expanded my love of hiking into a very successful business.
Before the business was named Sedona Hiking Adventures, the original name was Secret Mountain Adventure Sports Headquarters, SMASH Tours for short, that my friend, Adam, and his partners were in the process of starting. Due to circumstances, SMASH Tours never came to be, though Sedona Hiking Adventures was born out of that original idea.
I made a crucial decision, one that would change my life forever – Sedona Hiking Adventures would be the foundation and the beginning for my own tour company, one that would specialize in hiking tours, my passion and expertise of Sedona.
I sincerely thank both Adam and Robin for all their help and support since I started my tour company.
By 2004, I had only lived in Sedona for 3 years. It was at that time that I realized what I wanted to do with my life. I had heard the age-old advise that you should do what you love. I love to hike, and I am totally passionate about the red rocks. It was at that pivotal moment that Sedona Hiking Adventures was formed.
I guided people around Sedona. I am an environmentalist and avid recycler, so I shared those ideals with my clients. I customized hiking tours, making them uniquely personal.
My “adventure” led me to create tours for wine lovers. A request came from a client, asking for more than a hike – a tour to one of the vineyards in the area. I was more than obliged to customize this special tour for them.
My first and foremost concern is my clients’ enjoyment on all my tours. Whatever I can do to make you happy, I will do. Hiking was only part of the adventure. Now, wine tours are one of my specialties. It’s an experience that we share together. I interact with you and your family/friends. I strive for excellence on all my tours.
I live, work, and play in Sedona and the Verde Valley. I know all about the rocks, the geology, flora, fauna, and natural history, and also local vineyards and wine.
There are all sorts of tours in Sedona. You can pick the one that suits you best. If you are looking for something a little more personal, something totally private, then Wine Tours of Sedona is just right for you. As each person is unique, so are all of our tours. I would be happy and delighted to customize an adventure to meet your precise criteria.
