From here you can see the White House Ruins from atop the canyon. If you with to be adventurous, you can take the trail down to the ruins themselves. Pretty area, and we did Simone exploring and photo shooting. I love this canyon!
The White House overlook is an accessible viewpoint along the paved south rim drive. You can see the White House ruin 600 feet below on the canyon floor. Many times you can also see water in the stream. There are restroom facilities at the parking...More
We viewed White House Ruins from both down in the canyon and from the upper Overlook. The view is magnificent from both locations. If you don't have a chance to get down into the canyon, you can still see the old cave dwelling from the...More
It's 800' below and across the canyon to the ruins so your big telephoto lens or binoculars are a must here. Regardless, the viewpoint is spectacular and you can see the trail as it winds down out of the canyon. If you are taking the...More

Yes to all. We booked in advance and requested a particular guide from reading lots of favorable reviews. We didn't get him, just the grand old man of the tours and he was very good. That was Dave Wilson. Delbert was our pick but he had other obligations. We took the 3 hour Jeep tour and spent time at several locations including the White House ruins. They are worth the trip and Dave did an outstanding job with tons of background and opinion (much of which we found absorbing) about the history of the Navajo, a name he does not like. they are the din-eeh as it is pronounced. Moving on, the ride was BOUNCY and you should bring water and clothing to block the sun (or infrequent rain). Tipping is expected from all that I could understand but I think Dave was not happy with my tip. Frankly I don't know what was normal. You might ask around. Lastly, the southern rim drive is phenomenal and you must not miss it after seeing the canyon from below. We found the 3 hour tour sufficient but some folks horse pack for days. Good luck!
