What to expect
Following hotel pickup in the morning, depart Flagstaff on a roughly 3-hour drive northeast to Monument Valley. Along the way, you're treated to views of the San Francisco Peaks and volcanic fields. A stop is made at the historical Cameron Trading Post where you can browse the selection of Native American–crafted jewelry and artisan goods. The drive continues across the expansive Navajo Nation reservation, which boasts postcard-worthy scenes of the Painted Desert Cliffs and landmarks like the Elephant Feet rock pillars. Hear from your guide about the cultural history of the Navajo people before arriving at the Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park, and savor a delicious lunch with impressive views overlooking the timeworn desert formations. Then it's off for a guided tour of the valley floor. Stop at John Ford Point for an expansive view of the area, then come upon the West and East Mitten Buttes and see Totem Pole, Rain God Mesa, and more. Conclude your 10-hour day trip with the return to Flagstaff and drop-off at your hotel.

One of the Best Tours I’ve Been On!
I actually took this tour in June 2018, however due to travelling all over the world for the last 18 months, I am just in the process of writing all the reviews. What a fantastic day I had exploring Monument Valley. A few days previous to my tour, I received word from the tour company I’d booked with that the tour wasn’t running which send me in a massive frenzy trying to find a tour guide with availability. Luckily a very kind tour guide from Great Venture managed to get me on one of the buses! I booked with Great Ventures but my tour guide was from Red Stone Tours and when I had rang Red Stone Tours, they told me they had no availability which is very strange.

It’s a long day trip; it was almost 11 hours from Flagstaff start to finish. I was picked up at 7:30 and we journeyed to Utah. Everyone else in the bus had come from Sedona which is an even longer journey. Our tour guide JR was fantastic! He actually drives for the movie business so he’s chauffeured huge celebs including Stephen Spielberg, he’s dog-sat Jodi Forster’s dog on location and he’s even been an extra in a few movies; most famously he shovelled horse manure in Back to the Future Part III!

About an hour into the journey, we stopped at a rest stop/gift shop owned by the Native Americans. The entire area from Flagstaff to Monument Valley and beyond is Navajo Nation territory. We arrived at Goulding’s Lodge at about 10:45. This was our lunch stop only about 4 miles from the Valley. I thought we would have packed lunch consisting of sandwiches and crisps for lunch but instead we went into the restaurant and ordered whatever we wanted – the tour company pays for it all!

After lunch and a look around the museum at the hotel/restaurant, we headed into Monument Valley. We were in the valley itself for about 2.5 hours. We drove the dirt road which is the exact road taken in Stagecoach. JR had some props with him to create some pretty interesting shots. We encountered some dust devils along the way which had to be one of the highlights for me because dust devils are dust tornadoes! We stopped at John Ford’s Point which is the iconic rock ledge featured in The Searchers. There’s actually a horse called John Wayne’s Spirit and you can pay to ride him out on the ledge; unfortunately the people who do the rides weren’t there when we were. For me though, the best moment was walking out to the open desert. It was just breath taking how real and beautiful it was! Nowhere in the world can you see this and you could honestly just stand there for hours and get lost in that view, it was spectacular. This is definitely one of the best tours I’ve ever been on!

Long day!
Oct. 2018 • Couples
We drove to Flagstaff from Williams to meet the bus at 7.30am. Weather was cold and wet! We met up with JR and 6 other people and started the long journey to Monument Valley. JR gave an informative talk about the history, geology and the film use of the area. There were frequency stops for refreshments etc. And we finally arrived at Monument Valley around lunchtime. Lunch was provided at the restaurant within the visitors centre, and as a group, we decided to eat before the off road trip around the valley. The menu was well received and the food was excellent. Monument Valley only sees about 3 inches of rain a year, but had seen about 2 inches that morning. There was quite a lot of standing water in the valley and some of the roads were flooded. JR took us to a number of sites for photo opportunities and explained where various films were made within the valley. We spent about 2 hours driving around the valley road before we started the long drive back to Flagstaff. We finally arrived back about 7pm and then had the 40 minute drive back to Williams. However, we both felt that this was the best place that we visited in Arizona, and was well worth the time and money. JR was an excellent guide, and was able to entertain the bus from begging to end of the journey.
