If your going to monument valley the best way to see it is with a tour -save your car or rental car some serious potential bruises- Although my husband and I are not by any means "photographers" We had an incredible time on the sunrise tour. Watching the sunrise on monument valley was beyond amazing, then followed by multiple other... More

We booked a half-day tour with Keya-Hozohni Tours, also known as Phillips Photography Tours. Our guide was Elliot, a fine young man whose family has lived in Monument Valley for generations. Climbing aboard his Suburban, we went deep into the valley, visiting a weaver, huge alcoves doubling as sheep camps, and petroglyph localities known only to locals. Within cultural limits,... More

I strongly recommend our native american tour guide Ray Begley, 928-429-0042. He is RELIABLE and one of Carl Phillips' guides. We totally enjoyed the 4 hour tour of Monument Valley, parts of it in the back country. Ray is knowledgeable and accommodating. He has taken several professional photographers and groups and has a loyal following. My wife and I recommend... More

I made a long-planned photography trip to Northern Arizona and planned for two days at Monument Valley. Some research convinced me that Tom Phillips’ tour business, Keyah Hozhoni, was ideal for me. About a month in advance I confirmed with Carlos, one of the owners, that I could do a sunset tour on one day and a sunrise tour the... More

Actually, this tour deserves less than terrible as Carlos, the tour guide, never showed up. A phone call the day before to confirm was basically a voice mail for Carlos to get back to me. He never did. I waited in the lobby f the View for Carlos but he never came! With only two days in monument Valley on... More

Waited and called from the View parking lot - no answer and they never returned my calls. Go with someone else since they all probably take you to the same locations anyway. Very rude and not what I would expect of an operator that touts a Navajo title.

We called Carlos and arranged a photography tour for my husband. Carlos gave us the most amazing tour value. Ray was our knowledgeable guide. He really made our day helping my husband with the timing of sunlight, shadows and the various beautiful ways to appreciate the Monument Valley. Give them a call and you will experience Monument Valley at its... More

I took the Hunt's Mesa overnight tour through Keyah-Hozhoni Monument Valley Tours in late May 2013. I had heard a lot of good things about Tom Phillips and his photography tours, but I was sorry to learn that he passed away in the last year of two. Ray Begay was our guide, and he was excellent. I believe Tom Phillips... More

I had been to Monument Valley before but i wanted to return and take a tour for some better photo ops. Keya-Hozhoni was recommended and I was not disappointed. I took the overnight Hunt's Mesa tour with Donald as my guide. Normally they need at least 2 for this tour, but they took me alone at a very reasonable price.... More
