What people are saying about Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park

Our tour guide Sandrea was absolutely fantastic! Although it was cold, she provided us with blankets in our open air vehicle. Make sure to layer up if you come for the sunset tour. It was amazing to experience the musical performance by her and the rug weaving demonstration by Effie. Definitely try out the fried bread and take a picture on the horse at John Ford point. Sandrea gave us detailed and personal facts about her culture and the history which was so insightful. She was very kind and made sure we took all the pictures we needed. I would definitely love to come back again using this tour! Thank you Sandrea
