  • The tour was amazing, our guide was exceptional and we saw so much more than if we did it ourselves since the native guides have access to places the public does notl

  • Ray, our tour guide, was great. He gave us a lot of interesting information regarding the Navajo people, as well as showing us the most scenic places for photography. My husband and I were the only ones on our tour, which made it even better. The scenery was just beautiful!

  • This was the best tour imaginable! We did not know what to expect, but our trip was unique because we asked for a covered tour since we are allergic to lots of dust. We saw everything in a covered Rubicon Jeep. Our tour guide was Stephan and he is an expert on not only Monument Valley but the customs and traditions and history of the Navajo people. His insight brought to life all of the sites we saw. He also wove into the stories some tales of the western movies filmed in the area. We recommended this trip to everyone we saw after we left Monument Valley.

  • Angela was our tour guide, she arrived on time to pick us up for our tour. we ended up having a private tour as there was no one else schedule at that time period. The tour was fabulous, Angela knew everything on the history of Monument Valley. We went into the back country where you can not drive your own private car. We stopped multiple times for pictures and information on each of the monuments. We would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to know the history.
    This was my husbands favorite are to remember back to the western tv shows.

  • We enjoyed our tour of Monument Valley very much. Steven was our tour guide and he did a wonderful job of explaining the different sites, giving us history of the area, and some interesting insight into the Navajo culture and traditions.We are so glad that we used the services provided to make our visit memorable.He allowed plenty of time for questions, pictures and made our visit a fun memory-thank you.

  • We loved it, sitting up high on the back of the vehicle we had a great view and our our guide John gave us an expert commentary. We took the 2.5 hour tour with Dineh Bekeyah which went into a closed area of the park. One place John took us to was the Eagle's Eye, and he played a Navaho flute there and with the natural acoustics effect there it was amazing to hear such a song from just one flute. It was also good to just concentrate on seeing and experiencing Monument Valley without having to drive too, people who were using their own vehicles to see the first part of the park didn't seem to be having much fun as they bumped along the unsealed road.

  • My girlfriend and I took this tour recently and we were fortunate to be the only ones signed up. This tour was truly amazing as we got to see parts of the Tribal Park only open to those on tours with a Navajo guide. Years earlier, I saw Monument Valley on my own and only saw a fraction of what I saw on this trip. Our guide Henry was wonderful, and he took time for us to pause at several stops so we could quietly reflect the beauty and silence of this sacred place.

  • I would highly recommend this tour for anyone wanting to see and experience the real Monument Valley. Our guide Harry Naz was amazing. Being a very experienced photographer himself he took you to the perfect spot to get that perfect picture, which you would not know about if you weren't with Harry.

  • Great tour, would really recommend it.

  • We loved the tour of Monument Valley! The beauty was beyond anything we had expected. Our tour guide, Clyde Johnson, was very good. He knew so much about the area and made it so interesting. Would love to do the tour all over.
