This is an excellent tour; I recommend it. There was one thing that was of concern when I booked the tour: the tour only accepts parties of two or more people, so even though I was traveling alone I had to pay for a second, non-existent person. Later, I discussed this with tour staff and came to a good solution. But I encourage the tour operators to no longer require that guests traveling alone pay for two people.

This was a neat opportunity to get into the backcountry and see some beautiful rock formations and a petroglyph. We were super lucky to have the back of the truck to ourselves. It would not have been as much fun with other people since we basically got a private tour. Our guide was super. Knowledgeable, an excellent driver and she gave us some priceless tips for perfect picture spot.

Excellent trip and experience to see Monument. Valley. Tour accesses areas that you wouldn’t be able to alone. Knowledgeable and local guides with insight into the land and the Navajo culture.

The sunset tour was an experience no one should miss. Our guide Vera showed us the beauty of this land as well as the cultural importance that we were honored to share. A must see with Vera

Unique experience to explore the valley. The best part is having had the opportunity to see parts of the valley that cannot be reached if you self drive.
