Frankly, there is no "best" shuttle service to and from Sedona/Sky Harbor. It is really a bit of a pain especially if you have a family. It adds up!
I believe that Arizona Shuttle leaves every 1.5 hours, not hourly. They also only pick up from some hotels so, depending on where you are staying, you either can be picked up right there or may have to get to an "official" pick up point. You can see the list at arizonashuttle.com. It's $53 per person. I believe you MAY be able to get a door to door pickup for a bit more. Check with them.
We have used Ace Express Shuttle in the past. They offer door-to-door service. They are currently quoting a $60/person special. We haven't had a problem with them but a few friends and neighbors have had issues with them not showing up on time.
What my wife and I have taken to doing is actually driving, or getting a ride, up to the Flagstaff Airport and renting a one-way rental car from there to drop off at PHX. We pick up the day before we leave and drop it off the next morning in Phoenix. We can do this since we have a car in Sedona. It is cheaper for the two of us than either using the shuttles or driving personally to Phoenix and parking for extended periods. We have done it for as little as $80 including re-fueling. It sounds bizarre but has worked out well for us and may for you depending on your situation, number in your party, etc.
thanks for the feedback :)
I agree with PhillyPod there is no 'best' shuttle service. I've used Ace before with excellent results, my cousin swears by AZ Shuttle... I try to find what meets my schedule with the best price. May end up renting a car this time to avoid sitting around the airport waiting. Hope this helps!Edited: 14 September 2018, 05:41
What PP said. No great options. I usually drive myself and park at an off site lot with a shuttle near Sky Harbor.
I used to drive for the shuttles that got scooped into AZ Shuttle. Ace has left me waiting for hours at Sky Harbor. Bottom line is that it doesn’t matter where you’re going from Sedona, if you’re flying, it takes all day to get there. .
This is an old post.
I had good service with Ace, but it was awhile ago. They pick you up at your location which is more convenient that AZ Shuttle. My husband asked me to look into it recently, and currently they have a $99 round trip special. It's pretty reasonable, but I still would rather have a car in case we need to stop for something. If we were flying here, we would want a car to get around in Sedona too.
