Timing of a Pink Jeep

We are going at the end of September, and plan on doing the scenic rim/broken arrow tour in the morning. How is the weather and experience typically around mid morning(we were thinking 10am)? We are staying in the village of oak creek so wanted to give ourselves time to get up to Sedona after breakfast. Also what is weekday traffic usually like? I’ve read traffic is bad a lot so wanted to give ourselves enough time. Thanks!

From VOC to Pick Jeep in uptown Sedona is a relatively short drive of less than 10 miles, BUT the traffic on AZ-179 may be an issue depending on weekend or weekday. Normally without traffic you're looking at 15 minutes..

In uptown Sedona near Pink Jeep there are places to have breakfast, so consider breakfast in Uptown before your tour. There is plenty to see and do there while you wait.

Call and ask Pink Jeep if they can pick you up at your hotel. In the past they have offered that service. Enjoy your tour!

Early morning will be cooler. Traffic on 179 gets heavy starting on Wednesday. It might take 45 minutes to get to Uptown plus time for parking.

If you opt for a pick up in VOC, be sure to double or triple your tip. Drivers don’t get compensation for driving to and from custom pick ups.

It's always nice to get information as in #3 so you can give appropriate tips. It's like not tipping the cocktail waitress in Las Vegas for those complimentary drinks. She has paid the sales tax for them herself which you would have had to pay if you bought the drink yourself. Such information should become general knowledge.
