Very Educational
This was a wonderful private tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly as well as being a Native American. He has lived on this reservation for most of his life and is happy to share his life experience. He is also an avid photographer and will assist you with unforgettable photos. Highly recommend him, Harry Nez.

Great for children and adults
Oct 2021 • Family
Excellent experience for both kids and adults. We had 4 adults and 7 small kids in our group. We were concerned that it may be too long or too much information for our kids. The many interactive stops kept our little ones engaged and the informative guide made it enjoyable for adults as well. Yvonne was so patient with our adventurous children and gave them time to explore.

The tour itself was very good. Our guide, Harry, was informative and gave lots of personal information and family history, and was a wealth of facts on geology, history, tribal politics/organization, and anthropology. He made a cold rainy day at the site fun with gentle jokes, warm blankets, and he even played music for us, and stopped for a moment to allow a relative (also a tour guide) explain things beyond what he shared. I could have done without the Hogan stop, but I understand this is how people make their money, and COVID has made it a tough year.

My only issue was the pick up process. I had booked, via email, a full day tour (Mystery Valley in the morning and Monument Valley in the afternoon.) The staff who emailed with me was great and very responsive. However, I showed up at the office at 8 on the day of my tour and no one was there. I called the number and there was no answer. Finally, a jeep from the company pulled up, and said I had to follow to the View hotel to board, and that the tour I booked was not available due to COVID. I totally understand things change every day, but if someone had called the day before, I could have slept in a bit and gone to the right place.

Cultural Tour worth it
Sep 2021 • Family
Harry (Nez) was our tour guide and he was phenomenal. My 14-year-old son said he was cool. My son read the book, “Code Talker” last year so, Nez was sure to mention a lot of history about it. He was incredibly informative and patient. He excited my 17-year-old daughter with some helpful & cool camera tricks/ tips. He kept us all interested and engaged throughout the entire tour.

Wonderful guide through an ancient marvel
Our family of 4 (two boys ages 10 an 12) had a magical experience on the cultural your. Harry was a wonderful guide - knowledgeable about both the geology and the history - ancient and recent - of the Valley. He also told stories from his own life mixed in with more general traditions that made the telling very special. At one point my husband teared up by how overwhelmingly beautiful both the landscape and the stories were. I can't recommend it enough.

Tips:. As of August 18, 2021 Navajo nation and the park were still requiring masks, even outside, so come prepared. Also, do follow the instructions in your confirmation email to purchase your Monument Valley Park fee in advance. Having the reservation ready on my phone made entry very quick. The tour vegan and needed at the View, and we stayed there overnight, which made for an easier start (and it's also a stunning View from your room, particularly t sunrise. Finally, I believe they had water, but I'm not sure about snacks. We brought plenty of both so didn't need to ask - I was glad we had them as the tour is comprehensive and the kids benefitted from the pick-me-up.

Monument Valley 3.5 hour cultural tour
Jul 2021 • Family
One of the best tours I’ve ever taken in my life.
Very educational, very professional guide. His knowledge of Monument Valley and the history of the Navajo people was exemplary. The 3.5 cultural tour was comprehensive and delightful.
I highly recommend this type of tour for its thoroughness and in depth knowledge of Monument Valley and the Navajo People.
John was our guide.

Don't miss out on his fantastic tour!
Jul 2021
My 10-year old daughter and I took the Cultural Tour and it was really amazing. We booked it very short-notice (the night before), but Charlene was really accommodating and made sure we got exactly what we wanted. On the tour, we saw so many parts of the valley that we otherwise would never have been able to see, the jeep ride was really fun, and Harry, our truly amazing guide, told us so much both about the Valley as well as Navajo culture. We loved every second of it and learned a lot!

There was a problem in the beginning because I could not find my park pass (100% my fault), so we lost about 20 minutes with me scrambling to find it and I was sure that would come out of our tour time, but Harry still gave us the whole 3 1/2 hour tour, which was super kind. He also helped me take great pictures, and he helped my daughter climb a huge rock so she could take a picture of 'The Eye of the Sun.' And: when we came across wild horses (and my horse-loving daughter legitimately lost her little mind with happiness), Harry made an extra stop for us so we could watch them.

I seriously could not recommend them more!!!

Fantastic tour with Dineh Bekeyeh and John, our guide
We chose this 3.5hr cultural tour with Dinesh Bekeyeh pretty much at random, when faced with so many tour operators in Monument Valley ... and we are so pleased we did choose this one! The tour, with their absolutely fantastic guide John, was brilliant. John was very knowledgable, extremely helpful and very pleasant. We could not have had a better guide. He gave fascinating insights into all the MV sights, the Navajo people’s history and modern life, the geology of the area and so much more. We thoroughly recommend this company if this is the quality of tour they provide ... ask for John as your guide and you will not be disappointed.
