    Absolutely fabulous tour by Derik Holliday. The Monument Valley was spectacular, but the cultural insights provided by Derik were the real highlight. We plan to come back for the cultural tour in the future and request Derik.

    This 2.5 hour guided tour was fantastic. Steven, our guide provided so much detailed information that was both interesting and fascinating. Plus, it was a cold day and we were afraid we were going to be in the open air vehicle, but Steven brought the Tahoe which was much more comfortable. He showed us sights you won't see on the normal drive and explained much. Great experience!

    This tour was fabulous. Our guide, Yvonne, a young Navajo women, was engaging and very informative. We were very grateful for the face masks she provided as it was the beginning of the “sandy season.” It was interesting to go beyond the areas where you can go without a guide and hear detailed descriptions and information about the various areas, as well as info about the Navajo people.

    Definitely worth having the tour! You get to see places not open to the public, including ancient petroglyphs and places used in movies. Our guide Joseph gave interesting history and commentary on Navajo culture and traditions, as well as some very cool photo ideas! Highly recommended.
