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!

Touring with Reggie Etsitty is great. Super information. See everything. All pointed out. Most awesome tour. We covered so much ground and Reggie and his "pointing mirror" made sure we could see exactly what he was talking about.

Excellent tour. Our guide Reggie was very personable and knowledgeable about the local history and geography, pointing out many interesting sites along the way. A Navajo guided tour provides a much deeper understanding of the local culture and is very worthwhile.
