Visit exclusive locations throughout the Monument Valley only accessible with a Navajo guide, including famous areas filmed in John Wayne western movies!
Wake up Early to See the Sunrise on Your Monument Valley Tour
The early bird catches the worm! Start your day early and capture the sunrise from the best spot in the valley before we tour all of the unique monuments that make the valley so famous. The light at this time of day is absolutely breathtaking, and the monuments are lit up with the golden glow of sunrise. This is one of the best times to visit.
During your Monument Valley guided tour, you’ll be accompanied by a local Navajo guide who is an expert on the area, as well as Navajo traditions and culture. Throughout your experience, you’ll learn many interesting facts about Navajo culture, and you’ll even get to visit a traditional home, watch a Navajo rug weaving demonstration, and enjoy the singing of a ceremonial song or song on the Native American flute performed by your guide.
Visit all of the restricted parts of the valley that are only accessible with your guide, like the Mitten Buttes, the Totem Pole spire, the YeBiChei spires, and the Three Sisters. We also get up close and personal with ancient ruins, sandstone arches, and the most iconic monoliths.
See the Anasazi Petroglyphs, ancient rock art featuring spirals, zigzag lines, and prehistoric symbols. Take in the views of three magnificent arches: Big Hogan, Ear of the Wind, and Sun’s Eye, a unique structure with a small hole that seems like an eye carved against the sky.
Witness all the breathtaking geographical features of the Monument Valley as the sunrise lights up around you. Book a tour online today.
