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.

Please note: Guides are locals who have been praised for their storytelling skills and are first aid- and CPR-certified. Water is available but it's recommended that you bring your own snacks and other necessities.

Our guide, John, is an excellent guide, telling us information about the various rock formations, the history of the area, the geological details of the area, clan details of the Navajo, and great stories about the Navajo language and culture. He played his flute beautifully for us in an arch, ethereal. Great tour, much better than driving through the Valley on our own. Highly recommended.

An extraordinary experience! The Navajo guide, John, give us an exceptional tour, including stories about his people, the language, the geology and the land. Hooking up with him was a little confusing. You have to come through the Tribal Park entrance and pay a fee, so be sure you leave a little extra time for this: we had to wait in line for about 10 minutes. Then when you get to The View Hotel, The lobby entrance is on the right of the curved hotel sign, which was not obvious to us. You can ask for an open or closed vehicle. It was very windy so we did an enclosed vehicle, the right choice for driving on a bumpy gravel road in a dust storm!

Joseph, a native Navajo, gave us an exceptional experience. Just the amount of information and story telling. He sang a traditional song while beating his drum. 4:00 in early May made for terrific lighting.

Our guide, Joe, was terrific. We saw some of the special places where you cannot go in your own car. We saw petroglyphs and arches and learned quite a lot.
