Excellent tour with great photo opportunities which is what we liked most. Great if you don’t want to tackle the rough loop road in your car as it is best left to sturdy 4 x 4 vehicles which is what the tour is conducted in. There is plenty of narration of Navajo culture too.

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

Out tour guide was prompt, informative and friendly. We enjoyed riding to each area and learning about Native American lifestyles. The tour was fun. The valley impressive. I’d recommend the sunset tour. Loved the hotel too. We sat on our balcony and watched an old cowboy movie, filmed in Monument Valley.
