Monument Valley (Navajo: Tsé Biiʼ Ndzisgaii, meaning valley of the rocks) is a region of the Colorado Plateau characterized by a cluster of sandstone buttes, the largest reaching 1,000 ft (300 m) above the valley floor. It is located on the Utah-Arizona state line, near the Four Corners area. The valley is a sacred area that lies within the territory of the Navajo Nation Reservation, the Native American people of the area
The landscape overwhelms, not just by its beauty but also by its size. The fragile pinnacles of rock are surrounded by miles of mesas and buttes, shrubs, trees and windblown sand, all comprising the magnificent colors of the valley. All of this harmoniously combines to make Monument Valley a truly wondrous experience. Enjoy this beautiful land.
Larry J. gave an awesome tour in the Navajo lands of Monument Valley. He was knowledgeable and patient with our questions.
Our tour guide waited patiently for us to arrive as we were running thirty minutes behind, the time zone thing is real! Larry Team was our guide. He was friendly, courteous and full of great information about the history of Monument Valley. He gave us enough time at each point to take pictures and to explore. He helped us take family photos as well. It was excellent to be able to go into restricted areas and see some of the monuments up close. I highly recommend this tour.
This tour was well worth the cost! John was our tour guide, and he did an amazing guide! He was informative and funny! We saw so much! Make sure your battery is charged because you will take a lot of pics! Take the 8am slot as the weather was perfect!
We took the 3.5 hour tour and it was the highlight of our trip. Larry was our guide. One of the guests on our tour wanted to see specific sites from a tv show filmed in Monument Valley and Larry made sure we visited those sites in addition to the regularly planned stops. FYI the extra stops were incredible. Larry explained so much about Navajo customs, culture, and government.
