What people are saying about Navajo Nation

Monument Valley Tribal Tours and their guide Marjory were wonderful!! We were picked up as promised and taken for a tour of the areas accessible to anyone. Then we continued on to a special presentation of yarn making and rug making. The expert answered all of our questions about her presentation and about Native American life. We then continued on to other formations in the rocks and were shown things that you had to see to believe.

We loved our tour with Megan! She took the time to explain a wide range of things to us - from cultural to ecological and geological stuff! Very interesting, kind and fun! A wonderful guide, we definitely recommend.

This particular tour uses Navaho guides only. The tour was really nice and I’d recommend to other travelers. The music played at Big Hogan by the guide is very special.

Vera was a wonderful tour guide with significant knowledge and understanding of the land and the culture. Highly recommendable tour at a bargain price!!!

Great Tour, the back country part is the best. Our guide Marjory was Amazing!
