Beauty Way Jeep Tours formally known as De Chelly Tours offers Half Day and All Day Vehicle tours into Canyon De Chelly National Monument.

Ya'at'eeh (hello) to all our family and friends! We are all thrilled to announce that this summer marks our 25th Anniversary as an established tour company in Canyon de Chelly, Arizona!! As a young man, my great grandfather, Chauncey Neboyia, first led groups of archeologist and others into the canyon, and eventually helped it to become a National Monument in 1931. Over the next few decades he would teach his children and grandchildren about the history, stories, and traditions of the canyons, and it was here where my father, Daniel Staley (grandson of Chauncey) picked up his vast knowledge of the canyons and all its wonders.

Chauncey first led groups by foot, horse and wagon, then over the years Daniel started adding 4x4 vehicles and established "De Chelly Tours" as the first Navajo-owned tour business in Canyon de Chelly in 1989. We are the longest running Navajo family-owned and operated tour company in Canyon de Chelly that offers 4x4 tours, hiking and camping. We are so very happy and proud of our family's legacy and I feel completely honored to be the one to continue the family business and take it to new levels and share our beautiful home with you all. I feel like I learn something new about the canyon all the time and I hope to someday have as much knowledge of the canyon as my father and great grandfather.

We booked a three-hour tour of the canyon floor with Beauty Way on May 11, 2017, and we're so glad that we did. Based on others' reviews we requested to have Leander ('Lee') Staley, the owner, as our guide. The canyon itself is incredibly beautiful, but it was Lee's encyclopedic knowledge of the canyon, wisdom, insight, and good humor that... More

We took a private jeep tour while at Canyon de Chelly. The Navajo guide was very nice and informative. It really is a must to take a jeep tour because it is the only way to see the inside of the canyon (except for on hike into only a small section).

We spend 5 hours with Ben in the canyon. It is a spiritual, holy place and our visit was enriched with Ben's commentary on history and cultre. As he grew up in the canyon and has family still living there, his perspective is real and rich. Take as much time as you can to soak in the importance of the... More

My husband and I decided last minute on our way to Mesa Verde to make a stop at Canyon de Chelly for one night. We didn't know anything about Canyon de Chelly until we went on a jeep tour with Beauty Ways. Our guide Leander not only took us on a fun ride into the canyon pointing out petroglyphs and... More

This family run operation is a truly fantastic find! We had a private tour (just my wife and I) with Don. While the beauty of the canyon is breathtaking and the experience one-of-a-kind, Don brought it alive with his stories of the culture and inhabitants. Some friends had told us you can enjoy the canyon from the overlooks, but nothing... More

We chose Beauty Way based on TripAdvisor reviews. It was a great decision. We were picked up at the Chinle Visitor Center early by Ben. We were excited about this adventure based on what we had read. Ben made it better than we had expected. His knowledge of the pictographs and petroglyphs was outstanding. He shared family history. His sister... More

My family had a great time on this tour. Our guide Don did a great job of showing us the canyon and explaining the history of the area, and my daughter loved the experience of driving up and down a river in a jeep. What a great experience!

Being fans of Tony Hillerman novels, my wife and I booked the three hour jeep tour with our Navajo guide, James Yazzie. James was very knowledgeable and made the tour fun and entertaining with his many stories. Since he grew up in the canyon, he had first hand insight and knowledge of the area and history. I wish I would... More

My wife and I took the three-hour canyon tour with TJ Hunter. We had a great time! The canyons (we saw parts of Canyon del Muerto and Canyon de Chelly) are quite beautiful. TJ seemed to know all the best spots, steering us to several cliff dwellings ruins sites and ancient pictographs and petroglyphs. TJ's commentary was interesting and informative.... More

I had an amazing four hour tour on the canyon floor with my guide, Bennie. He shared his Indian heritage and described this beautiful part of the Southwest. I love to photograph and Bennie was very helpful in pointing out the many great views. I highly recommend this tour company.
