Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your tour begins through Monument Valley's natural attractions.

With your guide, make your first stop at John Ford's Point, where some of John Wayne's western movies were filmed, as well as 'Transformers: Age of Extinction.' Then head into the backcountry area of Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park to see the Sun's Eye Arch. Standing here at a specific degree, you can look into the rock arch to find out how it got its name. Also at this location, check out petroglyphs from the Anasazi people and listen to stories from your guide.

Then continue to the Big Hogan, another natural feature that's a favorite photo op site, before stopping at your last backcountry attraction, the Ear of the Wind, the largest arch in the park.

Next, head to the Totem Pole for more photo ops and to hear about their cultural histories, and then visit the North Window, where you can admire the Mitten Butte from a different perspective. Your tour then ends with return to your departure point.

This was the most wonderful experience my family has had. The views were spectacular. But, above all our guide Yovon I’m not sure of the spelling. She was by far the best guide you could ask for. Very friendly and so knowledgeable about monuments. Thank you for providing such a great time for my family. Five Star tour…
Wonderful tour!

The guy took so much time to explain the heritage and history of the Navajo people. We felt like we left by such a better inside into their traditions beliefs and family life. He even took the time to take out his sleep and play for us.
The best guide for your tour

Jon/Ron did an amazing job explaining Navajo culture and pointing out the various monuments along the ride. He really took his time explaining and giving us photo op tips. Overall a wonderful experience especially on their first day open since COVID.
