While we did a self guided tour, the rangers could not be more helpful and informative. Not only did they provide insights on the Castle Monument they also gave suggestions to visit two close by sites (Montezuma Well and V bar V Ranch) which were...More

Looking at the well-preserved cliff dwellings of the Sinagua people gave me the chills.....how did they manage to live in their homes in those cliffs? The Visitor's Center is small, but the staff there is very helpful and the displays in it are interesting. Leading...More

This site has nothing to do with Montezuma or the Aztecs, but it is an interesting historical site. The cliff dwellings are restored but you cannot go up in them. Enjoy the natural beauty and do not spend more than 30 minutes here.

We stopped by the site en route from Sedona to Phoenix. I’d been before but wanted my husband to see this marvel. The 1/3 mile path around the park is paved (good for wheelchairs, I think) and level, requiring minimal exertion. This historical community is...More

This cliff dwelling is amazing! Although you can't go in it, it is still worth staring at and visualizing how the Sinagua people would have lived here. Be sure to look at the cut-away, audio version of the dwelling (it is outside, on your way...More

You sound remarkably organised - we just made a list of attractions and did as many as we could - as to what’s covered I have no idea, either go back to the website or call them.
