What people are saying about Navajo Nation

This is an excellent tour; I recommend it. There was one thing that was of concern when I booked the tour: the tour only accepts parties of two or more people, so even though I was traveling alone I had to pay for a second, non-existent person. Later, I discussed this with tour staff and came to a good solution. But I encourage the tour operators to no longer require that guests traveling alone pay for two people.

We were picked up at the campsite with the open jeep. The Indian guide told all about holy places and what they called the rocks and why. We were also allowed in a hut and there an Indian grandmother told us how they used to live. Very interesting. The Tour also went through country closed to tourists.

It was a very nice and interesting tour. You saw a lot and learned about the life of the Navjo. Improvement! Pick-up location was not clearly defined. We found each other, but this should have been better defined in advance.

The tour guide, Carol, show us some spots to take pictures like the pro. Also, without the tour, we won’t be able to go in to see some spots that only the tour can go in. We had such a wonderful 2.5 hours tour.

Larry is a great guide and a great guy. We appreciated his thoughtfulness and entertaining tour. We highly recommend!
