Mike has lived in Sedona since 1985 and is considered one of the top guides in the Southwest. He leads adventure trips for companies such as: National Geographic, The Smithsonian and Off the Beaten Path. Southwest Outside has been featured in Sunset Magazine and National Geographic Traveler.  Max was born and raised in Sedona and has explored the Southwestern US extensively.

Whether you’d enjoy just relaxing on a back road tour in their large comfortable SUV (enclosed and climate controlled) or prefer an exhilarating hike to a remote wilderness vista, Southwest Outside can make your experience in Red Rock Country a great one. They consistently receive great reviews from all of our guests. In fact, more than one guest has returned to Sedona just to spend additional time with Mike and Max.
