What people are saying about Navajo Nation

We had a fantastic full day tour of Monument Valley and Mystery Valley. Our Navajo guide, Larry, was outstanding! He passionately told us a lot about the formation of Monument Valley and the fauna and gave us an exciting insight into the culture of the Navajos and brought us closer to their customs and way of life, today and in the past. In Mystery Valley he had also shown us very hidden petroglyphs and the best spots to take great photos of the Arches. We are very glad that we booked this tour, on our own we would only have seen a fraction and also not learned anything about the Navajos. We would do this tour again at any time and recommend it to every visitor. We would like to thank Larry very much for this great day, it will remain unforgettable!

Larry Team, our guide for the day, was excellent. He was polite, knowledgeable, humorous and answered all of our questions. He made the trip a better experience. I would highly reccommend the full day guided tour to get the most out of the journey through Monument Valley.

We loved our tour with Megan! She took the time to explain a wide range of things to us - from cultural to ecological and geological stuff! Very interesting, kind and fun! A wonderful guide, we definitely recommend.

Vera was a wonderful tour guide with significant knowledge and understanding of the land and the culture. Highly recommendable tour at a bargain price!!!

Great Tour, the back country part is the best. Our guide Marjory was Amazing!
