    Stop: 3 hours
    Participation in the 2.5 hour Monument Valley tour adventure offers the perfect way to learn about the Navajo culture and to experience all the beauty and magic of Monument Valley! During the 2.5 hour tour through the restricted region of Monument Valley you will explore the sacred unforgettable homeland of the Navajo people. The first stop on your tour adventure will be John Ford's Point, a site that often featured in John Ford's western movies. You will then continue your journey further into the backcountry and you will visit the valley's second largest arch  Sun's Eye arch.  Discover some of the valley's oldest Anasazi ruins, petroglyphs and pictographs. Later you will hike the sand dunes at Ear of the Wind arch and walk inside the Big Hogan, known as Monument Valley's largest amphitheater, where your Navajo guide will perform a musical demonstration for you. On your next stop you will see the isolated group of spires known as Yei Bi Chei next to which stands one of the most well known peaks in the valley, Totem Pole a tall, red sandstone column. Before going back to the View Hotel, our guide will take you to Artists Point, a plateau that offers a breathtaking panoramic view of the colorful Monoliths.

Tour guide Richard is phenomenal and talented on so many levels. We have taken tours all over the world, but none have been as well done as Richard's. Having been raised in Monument Valley, his stories were wonderfully authentic. He not only is an excellent story teller, but he is a fabulous photo taker and that is what we really want from a tour... perfect memories. For some shots, "Ansel" laid on his stomach to capture the perfect background. He played traditional Navajo flute music for us. His tremendous sense of humor, which included imitations of John Wayne and Elvis, made our visit unforgettable. He and Ralph were very thoughtful and careful to make sure we were aware of the time differences between AZ and UT and substituted a closed van due to the windstorms in the Valley on the day of our tour. Plus the cost of the tour is reasonable.

Richard was an AWESOME tour guide! He literally grew up among the buttes we were driving through! We did the sunset tour, and the pictures and sites were incredible. He played the flute and sung for us. It was an incredible experience. Highly recommend.

Before booking my 2.5 hour 4X4 Monument Valley Tour, I requested by e--mail a confirmatrion that the tour would include all the 11 points of the classic Valley Drive. The answer was that all points would be included, plus other points in the restricted areas. With my great disappointment it was not so at all. I did my tour on Saturday May 25th at 9:00. I was taken only to the first 5 points of the Valley Drive and then to some other places of little or no interest at all. The stops at any places were exaggeratedly long, much longer than necessary, resulting in a waste of the available time. At the end of the tour I had no other choice than driving my own car again through the complete Valley Drive, including the wonderful portions (the last 6 points) that had been completely skipped by the tour guide. By the way, I would advise that there is no problem in completing the tour with a normal vehicle (without need of a 4 wheel drive) plus you avoid a lot of sand in your face.
I recommend not to take this tour. Gaspare

We elected to take a guided jeep tour, as you are able to go deeper into Monument Valley with a guide than just self driving. It was fantastic. Cody took us all the way through the park back to areas unreachable without a 4 x 4. One highlight was the Big Hogan, where Cody sang a traveling song in his native language. I highly recommend Simpson and Cody!

Thank you for sharing your time with us during your visit to our beautiful lands of Monument Valley! You are so correct... that to truly enjoy all that our lands have to offer, all visitors should allow a homegrown Navajo guide, like Cody, to share his knowledge and take you through the "deeper and unreachable" areas of Monument Valley which are restricted from being seen otherwise! Cody will be pleased that you enjoyed his guiding... and the special song he presented in his native language at the amazingly beautiful and acoustically perfect Big Hogan, for sharing music! Thanks again... and may you travel in peace and safety, and come back again in the near future to enjoy more of what our special valley offers the people of the world!

On our trip around the Southwestern states, we were lucky enough to stay in Monument Valley, and were taken on a 4x4 tour to see the sights by Vera. Vera was a superb guide, navigating us through the beautiful monuments, and pointing out the best angles for photos, and answering any questions that we had.
A true highlight came when she sang us a peaceful Navajo song as we relaxed in the Big Hogan.
She was also keen to ensure we were back at the start of the trail for sunset at the Mittens. We all got many spectacular photographs, and all had a fantastic time. Truly magical.
Thank you Vera!

Our guide RC was wonderful, he was happy to show us notable features in the buttes and landscapes, and gave us some really interesting insights into the history of the place as well as stories about Navajo life and culture. He took us to some of the best photo spots and pointed out things like petroglyphs, wild plants, acoustics, animal tracks, etc. Sure you can drive the valley loop on your own, but I think we would have missed most of the features of interest if we'd tried to self guide ourselves through it. We also visited a Hogon to see the whole process of how those beautiful rugs are made. Overall an excellent excursion, worth the money and highly recommended!

We booked our tour to be part of a group but ended up being the only two. Our guide was Wayne. He informed us that the audio equipment for the truck was broken so he couldn't narrate as we drove along. This was a disappointment and I felt this should have been corrected beforehand because it was part of the trip. Wayne was informative once I started asking questions at the stops. I'm not sure if he would have offered any information if I hadn't encouraged him. I would have to agree with another reviewer that some of the stops didn't need to be as long as they were and my husband thought it could have been to meet the advertised 2.5 hour time allowed.
Overall I found it enjoyable & informative!

Thank you for taking the time to review your tour with us. Monument Valley is beautiful and we are glad Wayne was able to share his experiences with you. Thank you for the heads up on the speaker system. We will look into it.
