Sheldon did an amazing job of educating us on every aspect of Navajo culture and geology and history/culture. The monuments are incredible. You will be in total awe. Our lunch stop enabled us to enjoy Navajo cuisine which was plentiful and delicious. It was a very long day but definitely worth it!
Awesome, your guide was terrific
Our tour of monument valley was the best day of the trip. From minute one we knew this was going to be a fantastic day tour of monument valley. Our guide, James, was punctual, knowledgeable,informative and wonderful company throughout a very hot and tiring day. The breadth of information he imparted about the local Indian tribes and customs, the geography and geology of the region, the history of the national parks and monuments movement , etc...etc....was incomparable with any other trip I have been on and not for one minute did I want him to stop. His knowledge of the 18 mile route through monument valley itself was crucial to the success of the trip and here he again excelled himself. James managed to work around all the other loud and dusty local tour groups to find peaceful havens with stunning views from point after vantage point until I thought my camera was going to go on strike. Mix this in with a super get to know your fellow troopers lunch stop and a comfortable air conditioned bus and this was the recipe for the best day of my holiday and one I will definitely not forget.
Loved it! The guide Sheldon was somthing and Monument Valley is a place that you cant miss in your life!

This was an excellent tour and it was just like the pictures I had seen only larger. Very tasty lunch at the café there and our guide was very informative and knowledgeable. Absolute lived up to my expectations and more.
Really good, I loved MV. It's impressive and the tour by viator is really good.
Amazing tour guide - so informative and passionate! Spent so much time at the valley and drove the 17 mile off-road track through it. Took stunning photos! Lunch was good too with a great view of the valley. Was picked up right on time in Flagstaff in an air conditioned minibus of 8 people.
Our driver, Cory, was incredible! He gave information on anything we saw on the tour, from animals, vegetation, history, Native American culture, weather, jewelry, and anything else. Not only intelligent, he was pleasant and good-natured. It was the best day of our vacation.
