Full description

Explore Monument Valley from the comfort of an air-conditioned SUV on this guided tour from Oljato. Drive deep into the red-sand desert and stop for incredible views at look-out points. Choose from a private or a group tour experience. 

Be picked up at the View Hotel in Oljato and begin the 1.5-hour drive down switch-back dirt roads. Stop at the Left and Right Mitten Butte rock formation and drive by the Merrick Butte and Elephant and Camel Butte rock formations.

Admire the views at John Ford's Point, a beautiful spot named after the director who used this location to make many major western films. Ride through a beautiful landscape where many ancient natural medicines and remedies can be found. 

See a 450-foot, slim-spiraled totem pole which stands before the Yeibichei Dancers kingdom. Finally, go past the North Window, where you can take in some of the best views of the day before returning to your meeting point.

Arrived for 1.5 hr tour but since I was the solo person (along with 2 non-paying children) signed up for tour, was asked if I would pay the extra $10 to take the 2.5 hr tour. So glad this happened! Besides majestic scenery, the tour made stops in the restricted area, including a small amphitheater-like formation where the tour guides took turns singing or flute-playing traditional Navajo songs. In all, I’m so glad we did this tour rather than driving through myself. Besides experiencing it from the open-air of the tour truck, our guide, Derek, was knowledgeable and graciously shared his insights and experiences of his Navajo culture. I felt like I learned so much! Strongly recommend booking the 2,5 hr tour!

The description said we would be inside an SUV, but it was an open air jeep. I think the jeep is better because you can see more. Wearing masks helped with the dust! Our guide, Steven, was very kind and knowledgeable. You could drive your own car but it was better to have the guide.

What a fantastic experience we had on the guided tour. We were upgraded to the 2.5 hour tour at no extra charge. The Navajo tour guide, John, was the best. He provided insights to the different locations we passed or stopped at and gave us local Navajo information along with the other information on movies made on the different sites. We also learned about his Navajo family, especially his grandfather that fought in WWII as a code developer. The weather was good and we had some outstanding photos. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and highly recommend it to any travelers in the area.
