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!
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.
Long day, but would of not missed it. The scenery was wonderful. Ourguide was very informative, learn a lot of interesting facts
We had a great time - lots of pics. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable of the area. Would love to go again.

All I can say is WOW! Unbelievable scenery. It is a long ride but well worth it. The only down side was the Santa Ana's. Very windy at times.
The driver was knowledgeable about both the Navajo Nation and the land. The trip was long and it rained very hard the whole time we were there, so it was a red muddy mess!
But he was determined that we would see some of the monuments and get pictures.

Fantastic excursion to one of the most beautiful places I've seen. The Navajo Reservation is not what you expect, but worth the experience. J.R., our tour guide, was a blast, knew a lot of local history and had plenty of stories during the 3 hour trip from Sedona.

Could not fault the trip. the guide Steve was superb and so helpful and very imformative.He really put himself out for us and it was never any bother to stop to allow us to take pictures. If a message could be forwarded to him to tell him we visited Ashfork as he advised us we would be grateful. Hope if we are in the area again we could have him as a guide.

Great trip, friendly driver and office service in America was excellent. Monument Valley is a wonderful place - just like being in the western movies!
James needs to understand his history a little deeper, a little over-the-top as pro-indian and no effective balance.
Really enjoyed the tour though,
Absolutely fabulous! Monsoon, but who cares!!!! Lovely place, the guide was fantastic.
Good service and tour. 17 mile drive rough but scenic. Full day - fair drive to get there and book. Good pickup service.
The Monument Valley is really something to see. I did expect the trip to be long...was told 12 hours due to long drive time.... so I was prepared for 12 hours start to finish. However, by the time the day was over start to finish it was over 14 hours. In hind sight, I believe we took too much time at each hotel stop when picking folks up that was unnecessary. It appears the time got away from the driver and we even changed lunch plans when we heard that we wouldn't get back untl after 8 PM. That took away from the trip. We were so exhausted when we got back to the hotel.
This tour was not what I expected. It seemed to be mainly a shopping expedition at the rest stops. The scenery was beautiful but we thought we would be visiting a Navajo house and learning about their culture: not visiting them at work.
