We had a fantastic full day tour of Monument Valley and Mystery Valley. Our Navajo guide, Larry, was outstanding! He passionately told us a lot about the formation of Monument Valley and the fauna and gave us an exciting insight into the culture of the Navajos and brought us closer to their customs and way of life, today and in the past. In Mystery Valley he had also shown us very hidden petroglyphs and the best spots to take great photos of the Arches. We are very glad that we booked this tour, on our own we would only have seen a fraction and also not learned anything about the Navajos. We would do this tour again at any time and recommend it to every visitor. We would like to thank Larry very much for this great day, it will remain unforgettable!

We really enjoyed our full day tour with Larry Team. We spent the morning seeing the sights in Monument Valley. In the afternoon we explored Mystery Valley. Larry was a great guide! Shared his love of the area, some Navajo traditions, and assisted as we climbed up formations in Mystery Valley. We learned a lot and have an appreciation for the people who live here now and in the past.

Larry Team, our guide for the day, was excellent. He was polite, knowledgeable, humorous and answered all of our questions. He made the trip a better experience. I would highly reccommend the full day guided tour to get the most out of the journey through Monument Valley.

Loved the tour guide. She was pleasant and took good care of us. Mystery Valley was more interesting than expected and we really enjoyed learning about the Native American ruins.

This was the greatest adventure taken by the four of us. Sandrea our tour guide knew everything about the valley and brought her long native American prospective to each stop.
