Our tour guide, Larry Team, was amazing! He shared a lot of history related to Monument Valley and opened up his culture to us. He took us to so many beautiful sights and told us about the best photo spots, angles and even shooting modes to use. You can tell that Larry really knows his stuff! We never felt rushed at any of the stops, in fact, I think Larry took his time really showing us everything possible during the time we had with him! At one point he even sang a Navajo song for us and played a drum at the Big Hogan rock formation. The weather was very cold, icy, and snowy in the morning and the unpaved roads were rough but Larry was a great driver and we all felt comfortable and secure even with the rough terrain and weather. By the afternoon the weather had cleared up and we really got to see the best of both views (with and without snow). I'd highly recommend touring with Larry!!

Incredible in-depth tour of Monument Valley! Our guide was very kind and informative, telling us about the history of the valley and Navajo people. The music and weaving demonstrations were remarkable to see. We got to see so many different buttes and arches it felt like we were in a different world! Highly recommend and I hope to do this again one day.

Seeing the monuments from afar is one thing, but getting up close and personal was an experience of a lifetime. Our guide Marjorie was stupendous. She was very knowledgeable and an excellent driver. Loved her enthusiasm. She cared about each one of us on her tour. There really are no words to describe these astonishing monuments. I would do it again!
