We enjoyed our tour of Monument Valley with Blackwater Tours. The online booking process was quick and simple, we received our confirmation promptly including details about the pick-up point. On the morning of our tour Jones, our driver & guide was at the pick-up location well on time. He was a good driver and told us a lot about the... More

We booked a tour by Blackwater Tours. We had to pay in advance a deposit. The promised additional information is never done. On several emails, there were no reactions also never to calls. At the booked appointment nobody from Blackwater Tours appeared. We had to move to another provider. Stay away from Blackwater Tours.

Booked online with Sandstone tours. When we found the guy to pay the balance the rains fell down. He said come back in about 15 minutes so soaked through we sat in the car. When it stopped we went back and was introduced to Willie. We noticed it was a Blackwater wagon. Willie told us his son owned Blackwater &... More

Our guide and driver Frank was great. He was very knowledgeable and shared a lot of information about the valley. We took the 2 1/2 hour tour and enjoyed the whole experience. The valley is beautiful and Blackwater Tours is a great way to see it. Thanks!

Scheduled the first tour in the morning (8am) about one week out and chose the extended tour (2 1/2 hour). It was our family of four only on the tour and we were in the open vehicle that is seen in many pictures. I chose Blackwater for their positive reviews and pricing. The main reason I chose a tour at... More

Take the tour into the arches as you can drive the 17 mile scenic part in a good car or 4×4! Found the tribal jewellery to be cheaper in the park on the market stalls! !!!

There are several tour operators and by chance we were fortunate to have this tour operator and even more fortunate to have Frank as our tour guide. Frank was low key but thoughtful and proud of his heritage and Monument Valley and helped us appreciate this beautiful land and people. Awesome was at the last stop Frank pulled out his... More

This is my second tour with Blackwater and once again I could not have asked for a more informative, interesting, and fun guide. This time we had Frank and he was great. My wife and daughter were amazed by the canyon and his knowledge of the site. He was extremely helpful with photo sites and answered all the questions my... More

Our tour was great because our guide was awesome. I doubt many others can match his near twenty years as a guide, not to mention all the local knowledge that comes with actually being born and raised in the Valley. He answered all our questions. Basically we chatted for the entire time. We did the all day tour and learned... More
