What people are saying about Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park

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.

A wonderful trip! We visited the Grand Canyon (south rim) according to the program and had enough time for it. Day 2 Monument Valley and Horseshoe Bend and Day 3 Antelope Canyon (optional - but the whole group did) and Zion National Park. The days were tightly organized. Our guide Joe explained a lot to us and gave us helpful tips on site. In the evening the group had dinner together and there were very nice conversations. The hotels were good.

We when on the tour on 16th Jan 2020. Unfortunately it was quite cloudy and we were unable to see the sunrise over Monument Valley. However the tour was still amazing with so much to see with the added bonus that it was snowing when we were there.

Really a "once in a lifetime" experience.

Was a great experience. Competent, friendly guide. Maybe one participant too much for the van, too cramped for four people in the last row of seats.

Much more than I have expected. Great group, great guide and great hotels.
