Highlights

  • Tour custom created by guides to showcase their favorite parts of Lower Monument Valley
What to expect
  • Your guide meets you in the lobby of your hotel, where you'll prepare for a scenic drive to Monument Valley in an all-terrain vehicle. You'll have access to parts of the park that are off-limits to smaller cars. Located on a Navajo Reservation and considered sacred by Native American tribes, the multi-hued sandstone park can be tough to navigate alone. Your guide walks you through the history and background of each natural formation. With your choice of a sunrise or sunset tour, you’re guaranteed camera-ready views during the sun-kissed time of day known by photographers as the “Golden Hour.” The itineraries are fully customizable, so you’ll have your pick of some incredible spots, including iconic rock formations like John Ford’s Point, which served as film backdrop in many John Wayne Westerns. One of the most photographed rocks is the Yei Bi Chei, which resembles a line of tribal dancers. You’ll also get an opportunity to take pictures of the Big Hogan, a sandstone cave chamber, and Ear of the Wind, a mesmerizing, crimson-colored arch.

One of a Kind Experience
Nov. 2021
Our sunrise tour with Harry was one of the best guided tours we've ever done. The scenery was spectacular, and Harry was full of information and showed us new ways to use our iPhones for amazing pics. Although the tour was clearly planned out to take advantage of the sun rising and lighting up different parts of the valley, nothing was rushed, and Harry always stopped the car whenever one of us wanted to take pictures of something. Charlene was helpful on the phone when we were booking the tour -- asked us what our interests were, whether we were serious photographers. A sunrise tour of Monument Valley is a one of a kind experience. This is the best way to do it!

Wonderful, Personalized Tour
Oct. 2021
We did the Mystery Valley Tour in the morning and a Monument Valley Sunset Tour as private tours. Both were excellent. My husband and I had mentioned we loved photography and Charlene arranged with our wonderful guides to emphasize our interests. Nothing was rushed. If I asked to stop and take a picture, the guides were very happy to oblige and even advised me if there would be a better photo option further on. I was especially grateful that after the morning tour, they must have realized I am a bit hard of hearing and our afternoon guide wore a microphone even though it was just the 3 of us in the car. Both guides were so knowledgeable about the area, Navajo and other Native American histories. I would highly recommend using this company. One incredible highlight was our guide playing an Indian flute under one of the arches.

Great tour - don’t miss!
Oct. 2021
Sunset tour. Our tour guide John was fabulous and besides knowing the area facts and history he helped us all set up our cell phone/cameras to get the best results.
He shared his knowledge of the valley as well as his Navajo tribal traditions and history.
Awesome experience and we are really happy we took this tour - it exceed our expectations as did John’s sharing his knowledge of local geological history, human history, tribal history as well as anecdotes from his own personal experiences growing up as a Navajo.

Get sunset trip.
It was so fun going off the beaten track in Monument Valley. John was a great guide … gave us lots of information, directed us to excellent photo opportunities, helped those who needed assistance with their iPhone photos, played a very haunting flute melody for us and was just an all around good guide.

Great way to see Monument Valley!
Sep. 2021 • Couples
Really enjoyed our trip with Harry for a sunset ride around Monument Valley. It’s a great way to see the valley and get expert insight on what the different monuments are called and information about Navajo traditions. We also got lots of photo advice to score some great pictures! Highly recommend for a great time.
