Panoramica

Impara a conoscere la cultura Navajo e guarda le meraviglie naturali della Monument Valley in questo tour di 3 ore e mezza del Lower Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park. Potrai visitare un hogan, una tradizionale abitazione Navajo per guardare una dimostrazione, e ascoltare le storie di una guida su questa regione. Seleziona un tour di mattina o di pomeriggio al momento della prenotazione.
  • Visita culturale del Parco Tribale Navajo Monument Valley
  • Vedi archi, buttes e altre formazioni rocciose utilizzate nei film e altri media
  • Ascolta le storie sulla cultura navajo dalla tua guida
  • Visita un hogan tradizionale per una dimostrazione Navajo
  • Scelta degli orari di partenza al momento della prenotazione
Il tour inizia in un punto di incontro designato all'interno del Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park, dove incontrerai la guida per esplorare le formazioni rocciose della Monument Valley e la cultura Navajo, che è stata parte di questa terra per molte generazioni e i cui insegnamenti sono stati ereditati nel corso degli anni. Alcuni di questi insegnamenti sono condivisi con te durante il tour. 
La prima sosta è presso il John Ford's point, dove sono stati filmati alcuni dei film western di John Wayne, per poi dirigersi verso la zona rurale del parco per vedere il Sun's Eye Arch e visitare un hogan per una dimostrazione Navajo. A una certa ora e in un certo punto del Sun's Eye Arch puoi scoprire in che modo ha ottenuto il suo nome. Anche in questo luogo, guarda le incisioni rupestri degli Anasazi e ascolta le storie della guida.
Successivamente, dirigiti verso il Big Hogan, un'altra bellezza naturale, per altre fotografie e storie prima di visitare l'ultima attrazione della zona, the Ear of the Wind, l'arco più grande del parco.
Prosegui per il Totem pole e Yei Bi Cheii per altre foto e per ascoltare la loro storia culturale, poi visita la North window, dove puoi ammirare i Mittens Buttes da una prospettiva diversa. Il tour termina facendo ritorno al punto di partenza.
Nota: le storia delle guide possono variare, perché hanno diverse storie da raccontare, che nascono dalla loro esperienza personale, la cultura, le tradizione e le leggende Navajo.

Wonderful Experience! Made the entire trip worth it!

We booked the tour online and made our long drive out to Monument Valley. We stayed for 2 days and 1 night. Upon arrival we experienced a snow storm and wasnt sure if we would be able to take the tour since it would be outdoors. We were thinking of cancelling due to it being too cold. They were understanding and accommodating to our request but the guide assured us that the snow wouldnt be an issue so we agreed to stick it out and take the tour. Were so glad we listened! We were lucky enough to get a private tour in a Ford Expedition with our guide who was very sweet and knowledgable about the land and her culture. We took the backcountry road where only guides were allowed so we didnt have to deal with annoying people stopping and taking pictures. She showed us all the best photo opportunities and we were able to catch unforgettable scenic views. She was patient while driving us around. Highly reccomend this company!
Tremendous Visit!

Thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and accommodating. Our tour was essentially private. Will do again.

This tour was one of the most fascinating and awe-inspiring things I have ever done. It's almost unbelievable, and also indescribable how breath-taking and the impression these rock formations make. Our guide was Derek, a Navajo young man who knew every detail about the valley and the history of the people as they are connected to the land. I didn't feel anything about the valley was set up just for the tourist. The gift shop and restaurant were very tastefully arranged. I am so glad I made time to be a part of the red dust for just a little while. I was very moved by the experience.

My wife and I are in absolute agreement this tour was the single highest moment of our summer vacation. I very much doubt you could learn half as much in twice the time on your own, and the personal touch of our experienced Navajo guide was powerful. Our guide John was a third generation guide who had grown up and now raises his family in the immediate area. Because of his honorable U.S. military service in particular, he impressed us with his ability to gently bridge mainstream American culture with that of his people. We've been armchair students of the Navajo people, culture and history for many years. In a few hours he answered many gaps in our perspective and knowledge, and this was not just with facts and history but also by the nature of his presence. This is not something we often would say - but we feel indebted to him as a cultural guide. John took us both through the standard vista points and trails here in the core of Monument Valley, but he also had personal connections he shared with us. Part of this, to be honest, was possible because the day of the tour it was just the three of us. If you haven't done a local or native cultural tour, my primary recommendation is to show up with a lot of respect and patience for your hosts. This was not our home, we were guests. Curiosity, patience and appreciation are reward often in surprising ways. In this case we also had quite a bit of time at a local Navajo family's home, specifically their hogan. We enjoyed hand harvested Navajo tea, a lesson in rug weaving from a woman who weaves for a living, and a relaxed interpreted discussion with a couple of Navajo elders that was a privilege. The most amazing piece was a tour through some of the local caverns, where John spontaneously played native music on his traditional pipe - wow! Depending on who your guide is, and how many people are in your party, you may or may not have these specific experiences but these are real local guides with great things to share. Well worth the investment of your time, energy and money. Also it gets very hot by 11:00 in the morning, so if you can - book an earlier tour. We must have had lucky timing because the weather was fantastic the day of our tour, and though warm we never overheated. Make sure to bring a jacket, sunglasses and water - even in the summer i can be everything from cold and windy, to oppressively hot. I've traveled widely and most guides go out of their way to help ensure your comfort. Have fun!

There was four of us with Stephen, the guide. The whole journey was the most wonderful experience. Stephen was a first rate guide, very informative, we learned so much from him which made it all the more wondrous. He helped me with my camera angles and best places for viewing. Overall we did 3,500miles on our holiday but we never stopped talking of our journey with Stephen and the sights there. Thank you.

I think we must have had Harry senior as our experiences do not relate the the young Harry who appears to delight everyone. Firstly the vehicle. It was really good. Pretty big and can seat up to about 20 and there were only us 2, and one other on the tour. The seats were well padded and plenty of places to hold on. The terrain was really rough but it was such fun. Our dissatisfaction was due to the guide Harry. He was nice enough. Relaxed and jokey and he did know the names of all the buttes unless he was making them up :-. We paid for the 3 1/2 hr cultural tour. We were due to start at 4 so we arrived at the meeting place at 3:45 as instructed. There was no one there and we were getting nervous, but Harry arrived dead on time. We then had to wait for the other passenger. Not Harry's fault, but we did not start until 4:20. We visited most of the places on the itinerary though I'm not sure we visited the ' Big Hogan' to feel the rocks, unless that was the demonstration. Our main disappointment was in the lack of cultural information. Harry did not tell us one story or legend. We were taken to a Hogan' and we watched a lovely Navajo lady demonstrate spinning and weaving. This was really interesting but while she was doing this Harry came to life and started showing us Navajo tools and telling us what they were made of. We couldn't watch the interesting craft demonstration whilst Harry was showing us the tools. This was the only time Harry spoke about Navajo culture. The final straw was at the Totem pole. The Yei Bi Cheii monuments weren't mentioned. Harry got out his own fancy looking camera and spent just ages taking pictures of 'the ripples', walking over virgin desert to get good shots. We wanted, and paid, to go on a cultural tour, not a photographic tour. We took a few snaps then had to wait until Harry had taken the Totem pole from every conceivable angle with ripples. We were returned to the hotel at 6:40. We only had 2hrs 20 mins

We had four people on our tour and all said it was a great worthwhile tour! Mathew took extra time to ensure we got the best value from the tour. In taking a self guided tour of monument Valley you will miss the unique commentary from the Navajo perspective and you get into areas that are only accessible with the Navajo guide.
