Great tour at monument valley
Dec 2019 • Couples
We had a wonderful Jeep tour with our guide Stanley. He talked a lot about the Navajo culture and how his people live daily life there in the valley. He also sang Navajo song for us which was very good. Monument valley amazes me every time I travelled there. I think the talks about how these rocks are formed from geological time point is missing in the tour as guide only talked about how local people live there. I’d like to hear the science behind these great plains when on tour like this - “ Monument valley is formed during the Permian period, this patch of land once formed part of a seafloor where sediments and sandstone piled up in layers for millions of years. Tectonic forces raised the slab above the water line and created a plateau. Then water and wind chipped away at the sedimentary rock and removed the softer materials, eventually giving us the towering structures that we see today.”
This place also has lots of fossil remains and if tour include those would be great. But this is just me. Tour was wonderful just lacking the science side.

Great way to see the valley and learn more about Navajo culture
Oct 2019
Our guide RC was wonderful, he was happy to show us notable features in the buttes and landscapes, and gave us some really interesting insights into the history of the place as well as stories about Navajo life and culture. He took us to some of the best photo spots and pointed out things like petroglyphs, wild plants, acoustics, animal tracks, etc. Sure you can drive the valley loop on your own, but I think we would have missed most of the features of interest if we'd tried to self guide ourselves through it. We also visited a Hogon to see the whole process of how those beautiful rugs are made. Overall an excellent excursion, worth the money and highly recommended!

informative and entertaining
Sep 2019
We booked our tour to be part of a group but ended up being the only two. Our guide was Wayne. He informed us that the audio equipment for the truck was broken so he couldn't narrate as we drove along. This was a disappointment and I felt this should have been corrected beforehand because it was part of the trip. Wayne was informative once I started asking questions at the stops. I'm not sure if he would have offered any information if I hadn't encouraged him. I would have to agree with another reviewer that some of the stops didn't need to be as long as they were and my husband thought it could have been to meet the advertised 2.5 hour time allowed.
Overall I found it enjoyable & informative!

They did not keep the promise!
May 2019 • Couples
Before booking my 2.5 hour 4X4 Monument Valley Tour, I requested by e--mail a confirmatrion that the tour would include all the 11 points of the classic Valley Drive. The answer was that all points would be included, plus other points in the restricted areas. With my great disappointment it was not so at all. I did my tour on Saturday May 25th at 9:00. I was taken only to the first 5 points of the Valley Drive and then to some other places of little or no interest at all. The stops at any places were exaggeratedly long, much longer than necessary, resulting in a waste of the available time. At the end of the tour I had no other choice than driving my own car again through the complete Valley Drive, including the wonderful portions (the last 6 points) that had been completely skipped by the tour guide. By the way, I would advise that there is no problem in completing the tour with a normal vehicle (without need of a 4 wheel drive) plus you avoid a lot of sand in your face.
I recommend not to take this tour. Gaspare

Great tour with Cody
May 2019 • Couples
We elected to take a guided jeep tour, as you are able to go deeper into Monument Valley with a guide than just self driving. It was fantastic. Cody took us all the way through the park back to areas unreachable without a 4 x 4. One highlight was the Big Hogan, where Cody sang a traveling song in his native language. I highly recommend Simpson and Cody!

Thank you for sharing your time with us during your visit to our beautiful lands of Monument Valley! You are so correct... that to truly enjoy all that our lands have to offer, all visitors should allow a homegrown Navajo guide, like Cody, to share his knowledge and take you through the "deeper and unreachable" areas of Monument Valley which are restricted from being seen otherwise! Cody will be pleased that you enjoyed his guiding... and the special song he presented in his native language at the amazingly beautiful and acoustically perfect Big Hogan, for sharing music! Thanks again... and may you travel in peace and safety, and come back again in the near future to enjoy more of what our special valley offers the people of the world!

It was a little cold for the open back truck but we didn't let that stop us and Harrision guided around the reservation stopping for explanations and pictures.

He was very friendly and knowledgeable and allowed lots of time for pictures and just taking in the breathtaking views

A great way to see monument valley and save the suspension of your rental car!!

Magical Sunset Tour
On our trip around the Southwestern states, we were lucky enough to stay in Monument Valley, and were taken on a 4x4 tour to see the sights by Vera. Vera was a superb guide, navigating us through the beautiful monuments, and pointing out the best angles for photos, and answering any questions that we had.
A true highlight came when she sang us a peaceful Navajo song as we relaxed in the Big Hogan.
She was also keen to ensure we were back at the start of the trail for sunset at the Mittens. We all got many spectacular photographs, and all had a fantastic time. Truly magical.
Thank you Vera!
