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.

Visiting Montezuma's Castle is a relatively short time commitment (1-2 hours) and an easy, shaded walk on a level, paved trail to a very impressive ancient Indian cliff dwellings. The cliff dwellings themselves were amazing and very picturesque but for me what put it all...More

Montezuma Castle National Monument is a concise trip through an ancient way of life. The pathway through the outdoor monument is very short, paved and level. It starts behind a little gift shop, goes through pretty, natural landscaping, and meanders past a pretty staggering multi-family...More

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

It was very hot the day we were there but the walk is easy to the cliff dwellings. Visitor center is really nice. Make sure you stop here.

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

These cliff dwellings and the wonderful creek below are a powerful place. The museum, although small, is nicely curated and full of information. A very moving experience

We stopped by here on the way to Sedona. This was my third time. The cliff dwellings are viewed from an easy short trail from the parking lot. Montezuma's Castle is so incredible with it set in an alcove in the cliff. There is a...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.
