Our guide was Larry. Let me tell you, he is fantastic! He told us Native folklore stories, explained the history of Monument Valley, explained the petroglyphs, and so much more. Patient with us, helpful to those with lessened abilities, and was just plane wonderful. Do yourself a big favor and go with this company. You will not be sorry if you do. Wonderful time. Well worth the cost.

This was a neat opportunity to get into the backcountry and see some beautiful rock formations and a petroglyph. We were super lucky to have the back of the truck to ourselves. It would not have been as much fun with other people since we basically got a private tour. Our guide was super. Knowledgeable, an excellent driver and she gave us some priceless tips for perfect picture spot.

Plus, when the guide had friends at one stop, we once were waiting for her...
