Canyon De Chelly Tours is an enterprise of Leon Skyhorse Thomas. Every guide is a professional, certified by the National Park Service by examination. In addition to tours of the Canyon de Chelly National Monument, cultural consulting needs are addressed on a case by case basis for those who seek a more intimate insight onto the Navajo Way. Leon has assisted film-makers on location in Navajoland and is used to delivering high quality services to the people and organizations he serves.There are over 2700 archaeological sites within the many canyons of Canyon de Chelly National Monument. Only 13 of the 700 standing ruins have been stabilized, re-inforced, or protected from degradation. We are professional Navajo guides who can teach you the history of our canyons and about the Anasazi, Hopi and Navajo peoples. We pride ourselves in offering you more than just viewing our scenery - but we can do this too!

This is truly hard to describe in words. So check out the website. Amazing story about the lives of Native Americans. The canyon and canyon floor is breathtaking. Somewhat off the main interstates,but trip to Navajo reservation is something I will never forget. Must see.

An exceptionally beautiful part of the American Southwest, the canyon seems uniquely able to preserve it natural beauty despite human habitation for 5000 years. Maybe the Navajo should be credited for preserving the pristine conditions and multiple archaeological sites, including cliff dwellings. 2000 year old...More
