My girlfriend and I took the 2 hour Vortex Tour conducted by Ron. The tour went to Rachael's Knoll and the Shrine of the Red Rocks. The tour was very personal as my girlfriend and I were the only guests. Ron gave a great explanation of the theories behind vortex energy and also provided allot of information on the plant life and animals of the dessert and how various species communicate. Ron left me much to ponder and think about. I strongly recommend taking a tour with Ron.

Ron guided us through a mind blowing Shamanic journey to the mystical vortexes and a sacred Medicine Wheel. We learned how the wheel is used for healing and to know animal totems and how we are guided by messages daily. Information we could never dream of until now.

I am so very pleased that you enjoyed your experience on the vortexes of Sedona. It is always exciting for me, as well, when someone begins to look in a larger sense at the world around them.

Ron, the shaman, kicked off our stay in Sedona with an amazing tour of vortexes in the area. Ron was able to explain the vortexes and put them in context with the Native American understanding of the world and our place in it. He was illuminating and inspirational! We especially liked how Ron customized his tour and explanations to connect with the members of our group and give us individual insights into his knowledge and wisdom. Our time with Ron shaped the rest of our trip as we found ourselves reflecting on what he had shared and the impact of that information on each of us. It was a great benefit to see the vortexes through Ron's eyes and spend time with such a sensitive, caring Shaman. Being with Ron will make your heart and soul better!

We were picked up at our door. We expected to visit several vortexes. Since the vortexes cover several miles, I guess it was good enough just to point them out from afar. We went up to Rachel's Knoll and saw some great views.
The tour started as a lecture in Shamanism. We did a little"prayer" at the knoll.
Then we went up to the airport and he pointed out another vortex, but we did not stop where everyone else did.
The Time Warp vortex, he mentioned about where it was but kept driving.
Finally we we're taken down to Oak creek, told about a flood and shown several small homes that cost alot because they are by the creek. What did that have to do with vortexes?
He spent alot of time telling us about his personal history and boasting about what famous people he had met.
Finally, we returned to our room and he did a reading. That was probably the only part of the tour that went as expected.
Looking at the description of the tour, we were not "given tools to promote healing in your mind, body and spirit". We we're very open to experiencing the energy of the vortexes, but did get anything.

There are 7 vortexes in the Sedona area and the tour is designed to be an overview of them. The explanation is designed to give information about the area and an understanding of how the native people used these places for ceremony and prayer. I regret that you did not receive what you were expecting. The reason we didn't stop where everyone else did is that those people simply stop there for pictures, not because of the vortex. Please feel free to contact me for further information.

My husband and I recently visited the Sedona area and heard of the Vortexes and wanted to go check them out and soak up all that positive energy. We called Ron and he helped us find a tour that fit our interests and budget. He came to our resort to pick us up and we spent several hours on the tour learning about the area, the Vortexes, Medicine Wheels, and more. We visited a more private Vortex and didn't have to compete with hordes of tourists. It was relaxing and beautiful.

Ron gave us a great vortex tour. He was very knowledgeable about the vortexes and the Sedona area in addition to being very spiritual. We really enjoyed hearing all of the spiritual wisdom that he was willing to share. Would highly recommend this tour and would do it again.

The whole experience from beginning to end was wonderful! I was a bit apprehensive before we met Ron, but as soon as I saw his friendly and kind face and experienced his humor, I was immediately at ease. It was EVERYTHING I was looking for ... educational, experiential, and so very special. I was captivated by the scenery, the history, and most of all, Ron's spirit. His wisdom, knowledge, and experience was inspiring. If anyone wonders if this tour is worth the price, then they have no worries. It is worth more!!!

The Buddhist peace site was moving and interesting. Rachel's vortex had interesting background story but was mainly a view of the golf resort with a nice backdrop. Airport was just a parking lot with lots of people waiting for sunset. Not really worth the money but and okay tour

The information given on the tours explains vortexes, Medicine Wheels, the different animals and their symbolism. Plus info on Native Americans in the area. Sorry you didn't fully enjoy the tour. Do come back and enjoy Sedona again.

We enjoy the weekend in Sedona for the first time, and were fortunate enough to have a tour with Ron, who escorted us for 2 hours to the different vortexes in Sedona, and presented us with a vast amount of knowledge about Sedona, its history, nature, and presented with grace, humor, and enlightenment! Thank you!
