Andrea was our guide and she was very nice. She explained the formations to us and also a lot about the life of the Navajo and the animal and plant life. She showed us the best spots for photos and even played drums and sang for us. It was a great experience!

A magical and one of a kind experience! The guide was really helpful and great at explaining the history of this wonderful place to us. With this tour you see places that you would not be able to reach with your car. There was no singing performance by the guide but the visit is worth it all the same.

we had great time after we got on the truck! a little confused during pickup since there're many tour operators. you need to pay the entrance fee of $8 per person to get in the View hotel pickup area, then have that receipt with you during the tour when you get on the truck. our guide was awesome, told us stories, sang and took great pictures I don't remember her name but i think she is in her 50th
