Our guide is just ok. She barely left the van at each stop. The van itself was fine, but it did not come with a foot stool which would have been helpful. The sights covered were amazing.

Our guide Larry Team was wonderful. He was very knowledgeable of the area and shared Navajo heritage which was very interesting. Gave great meaning to the area and added the topping to the trip.
Phantastic experience
Klaus_G, Oct 2021
Our guide Larry was phantastic. Not only was he knowledgeable of all the sights and places, he also told us a lot about Navajo customs and the origins of the Navajo nation.
It was okay

Navajo landscape Being able to see the Navajo lands and learn their history. The weather was bad for my trip and a guide was not well prepared. The riding was very rough w/o seatbelt. It should had a pre-depature safety check and it must be a regiment.

An all-around enriching experience
Kyle_T, Oct 2021
Our tour through the back country of Monument Valley was phenomenal. The rock formations are undeniably magnificent, but the cultural history of the Navajo people is what really brings the landscape to life. Our tour guide, Larry Team, was knowledgeable, insightful, and genuine. He beautifully wove together the geological history, the cultural history, and perhaps the most enriching - his personal experiences and narrative as a Navajo. It is because of Larry that the tour was not just great, but outstanding.
