Full description

Explore Monument Valley from the comfort of an air-conditioned SUV on this guided tour from Oljato. Drive deep into the red-sand desert and stop for incredible views at look-out points. Choose from a private or a group tour experience. 

Be picked up at the View Hotel in Oljato and begin the 1.5-hour drive down switch-back dirt roads. Stop at the Left and Right Mitten Butte rock formation and drive by the Merrick Butte and Elephant and Camel Butte rock formations.

Admire the views at John Ford's Point, a beautiful spot named after the director who used this location to make many major western films. Ride through a beautiful landscape where many ancient natural medicines and remedies can be found. 

See a 450-foot, slim-spiraled totem pole which stands before the Yeibichei Dancers kingdom. Finally, go past the North Window, where you can take in some of the best views of the day before returning to your meeting point.

Monument Valley is a very impressive valley. We had a local guide who drove us (we were alone in the car) to the most impressive spots in the valley. We were always able to get out and take photos. The ride itself went over very bumpy terrain, which is why we chose the guided tour. Driving through with a rental car is not recommended. The photos do not come close to reflecting the beauty of the valley as it is in real life. Is really highly recommended.

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
