PINK JEEP TOURS OFFERED AT ARIZONA’S ENCHANTMENT RESORT
SEDONA, Ariz. (January 11, 2008) — Pink Jeep Tours, the premier adventure tour company of Northern Arizona, is now the preferred onsite Jeep tour provider for Enchantment Resort. Pink Jeep Tours has created three unique programs for Enchantment Resort’s guests.
An invigorating way to start the day, The Backpack Breakfast Tour incorporates a Jeep tour with a hike amongst the spectacular red rocks of Sedona. Resort guests will be served a healthy continental breakfast while on one of the most visually stunning hiking trails in Sedona.
“Pink Jeep Tours’ expert guides educate guests about Native American culture, the flora and fauna, geology and Sedona history while on the drive and on the hike,” said Shawn Wendell, owner of Pink Jeep Tours. “The tour also can be customized to incorporate one of 10 other popular and scenic hiking trails throughout the Coconino National Forest in Sedona.”
The Naanatim Honanki Adventure is designed specifically for families to experience the intriguing history and culture of the Southwest in an entertaining, family-oriented atmosphere. (Naanatim means family in the Hopi language). This distinctive family adventure includes Pink Jeep Tour’s popular Ancient Ruin Tour and several family activities. Pink Jeep Tours’ professional guides will walk each family through the Honanki cliff dwelling, a Sinaguan Cliff dwelling that was built in the 12th century. The guides will relate modern family life to the lifestyle of the Southern Sinaguans more than 700 years ago.
After the tour of Honanki, family members will participate in several interactive programs that are both fun and rewarding, including “Wild Animal Scramble,” “Tree Silhouette” or “Scavenger Hunt.”
Pink Jeep Tours also has designed a tour for Enchantment Resort’s Camp Coyote program for children ages 8-12. Pink Jeep Tours has offered a variation on the ROCKS Program (Reinforcing Our Children’s Knowledge of Sedona) to schools in the Verde Valley for the past four years. Campers will visit the Honanki Ruin site and professional guides will explain and tell stories about the pictographs and petroglyphs on the rock walls, providing interpretations of the customs, myths and legends of the Native Americans who lived there. Interactive games make campers more aware of their surroundings and help them appreciate the beauty of nature and the Native American culture.
