What people are saying about West and East Mitten Buttes

we had great time after we got on the truck! a little confused during pickup since there're many tour operators. you need to pay the entrance fee of $8 per person to get in the View hotel pickup area, then have that receipt with you during the tour when you get on the truck. our guide was awesome, told us stories, sang and took great pictures I don't remember her name but i think she is in her 50th

This is a stunning valley wIth wonderful mesas and buttes. There is a palpable spiritual presence in this valley. Learning about the many Hollywood sets in this place was very fun.

Our guide,Stephen, was excellent. He was very personable and informative. He was eager to answer our questions and took time with his explanations. He made our tour mist enjoyable.

We did the sunset tour with Larry. Funny, very knowledgeable and takes great photos for all who wanted him to. Such a wonderful experience! Thank you, Larry! Well worth the money!

We were the only guests on the tour. Had a marvelous private lecture about the scenery and the Navajo people.
