Full description
Choose from a shared or private tour to explore Monument Valley from the comfort of an air-conditioned SUV with an expert local tour guide. Follow the scenic valley drive deep into the red sand desert for incredible views and look-out points. You'll make many stops along the way for chances to get some snaps and take in the scenery. After pickup at the View Hotel, you'll begin the 1.5-hour drive down switch-back dirt roads. The first short stop is at the Left & Right Mitten Butte, followed by a drive-by shot of Merrick Butte, and Elephant & Camel Butte. Stop at John Ford's Point, a beautiful spot named after the director who used this location to make many major western films. Drive over the beautiful landscape where many ancient natural medicines and remedies can be found. As the tour continues, see a 450-foot slim spiraled Totem Pole which stands before the Yeibichei Dancers kingdom. Finally, sail past The North Window, where you'll take in some of the best views of the day.

Arrived for 1.5 hr tour but since I was the solo person (along with 2 non-paying children) signed up for tour, was asked if I would pay the extra $10 to take the 2.5 hr tour. So glad this happened! Besides majestic scenery, the tour made stops in the restricted area, including a small amphitheater-like formation where the tour guides took turns singing or flute-playing traditional Navajo songs. In all, I’m so glad we did this tour rather than driving through myself. Besides experiencing it from the open-air of the tour truck, our guide, Derek, was knowledgeable and graciously shared his insights and experiences of his Navajo culture. I felt like I learned so much! Strongly recommend booking the 2,5 hr tour!

It is a very pleasant experience. The Indian guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. She explained the history of Monument Valley very well. The only complaint we can make is that everything is in English. It would be desirable, for people who do not speak English, that there is an audio guide in the desired language

The tour was great. Lee explained a lot to us and showed us great photo spots. I was glad we didn't use the rental car. It would certainly have been possible, but the road conditions took some getting used to. Also, we wouldn't have learned as much about Navajo life in this area.
