Life on Mars? That’s no small affair! Do you ever have a feeling that there is something more out there? Look no further because Sedona has more than just tours that your typical vacation may offer. Link up with a UFO tour guide to help spot some of those unidentified flying objects whirling about in the sky. Who knows, you may be the first human contact to be made with an alien life form. Boy, what a story that would be to take back home.

With clearer sighting conditions in the evening due to the almost complete darkness in Sedona, a UFO sighting is more likely to happen. A UFO tour can be one of the most perfect experiences you can have in Sedona as a night owl with a longing hope for communication to an extraterrestrial.
