We elected the self guided tour, it was advertised as a 1 1/2 to 2 hour tour. We enjoyed so much it took me 3+ hours. The road is quite rough but manageable. The views are so beautiful, at every turn was another. The visitors center called the The View, has a gift shop, restaurant and information center.

Not the Grand Canyon but very close! It is isolated but shares its isolation with several great monuments and national parks A "severe" canyon drive is extraordinary In the great variety mountain majesty and one of the bumpiest rides ever. Just pure wonder

Just returned from a wonderful stay at The Valley View Inn. The view from every room will take your breath away. And the Safari tour with our tour guide Bobby was wonderful. He was so knowledgeable of the area and customs. Of course he is Navajo. I'm 65 and have traveled a lot in and out of the U.S. this... More

Of course, the views are spectacular here. Creation at its finest. But the road is awful...there are no real hiking trails nor amenities (I'm talking bathrooms...not luxury shopping). .. this could be a place to learn a lot about history, archeology, Native American culture and spirituality, geology and enjoy the beautiful outdoors.....but nothing has been done to foster that at...

This was breathtaking from afar. There is a VISITOR's Center at the border of Utah and Arizona but that's NOT the one to get to Monument Valley. There is 4 more miles after the first Visitor's center. Once U are there, you will pay $20 entry fee. Once in, you have a map to help you take the 17 mile... More

We spent the day driving through a Monument Valley and the Navaho reservation. It was one of the best days of our trip. Long roads with endlessly changing scenery. The roadside stands were great for authentic jewelry and Native American artwork.

Incredible formations and views. Hard to take a bad picture. Self drive tours are possible, but would recommend a local guide for more background and information on the park.

Simply put, there is no place else like Monument Valley in the Southwest. I have been twice, both times with a Navajo guide, to photograph the area. (If you're a photographer I highly recommend doing both sunrise and sunset tours with a Navajo guide, which is the only way to access off-road sections of the Park.) The 17-mile loop road... More

I am a big fan of John Wayne. I wanted to visit Monument Valley because "The Searchers" and "Stagecoach" were filmed on this location. After paying the fee of $20 we were able to drive around the 17 mile loop taking photos of the amazing rock formations and enjoying the scenery. Beautiful vistas of rugged classical Western scenery. There is... More
