Full description
Choose from a shared or private tour to explore Monument Valley from the comfort of an air-conditioned SUV with an expert local tour guide. Follow the scenic valley drive deep into the red sand desert for incredible views and look-out points. You'll make many stops along the way for chances to get some snaps and take in the scenery. After pickup at the View Hotel, you'll begin the 1.5-hour drive down switch-back dirt roads. The first short stop is at the Left & Right Mitten Butte, followed by a drive-by shot of Merrick Butte, and Elephant & Camel Butte. Stop at John Ford's Point, a beautiful spot named after the director who used this location to make many major western films. Drive over the beautiful landscape where many ancient natural medicines and remedies can be found. As the tour continues, see a 450-foot slim spiraled Totem Pole which stands before the Yeibichei Dancers kingdom. Finally, sail past The North Window, where you'll take in some of the best views of the day.

What a fantastic experience we had on the guided tour. We were upgraded to the 2.5 hour tour at no extra charge. The Navajo tour guide, John, was the best. He provided insights to the different locations we passed or stopped at and gave us local Navajo information along with the other information on movies made on the different sites. We also learned about his Navajo family, especially his grandfather that fought in WWII as a code developer. The weather was good and we had some outstanding photos. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and highly recommend it to any travelers in the area.
