This is absolutely, by far the best way to visit Monument Valley. The cost was $90 per person. Our tour lasted almost 3 hours. The road is very rugged so be prepared. On the tour you will be taken to areas that you could not go to if you did the self drive (and beat the hell out of your... More

I did the 4 hour Monument Valley ride with my 20 year old niece and her boyfriend. Both were very inexperienced riders and yet by the end of this ride felt comfortable trotting and even did some loping. Our guide was a young native gentleman, Dwight, who was a very skilled rider who has even won some prizes in amateur... More

JT was our guide on a 4-hour trip. He gave us an excellent look at life on the Rez, and left us with very few questions, which he was happy to answer. He truly loves his Navajo culture. Stopped at all the highlights and wherever we wished, with plenty of time for photos. Most memorable part was his flute concert... More

My parents took the horse riding tour and I had a private jeep tour and we all say that the it was the best way to see Monument Valley. The guides were knowledgeable, friendly and very keen to impress. I would highly recommend.

We did a private sunrise tour with JT and found him to be a truly great guide - striking just the right balance between proposing things and listening to what we wanted to do. We spent 2 hours watching the first rays of light in this incredible place and enjoyed every moment. Highly recommended!

I don't think I have ever had a stronger reaction to anything so seemingly trivial in my entire life. The horseback tour was unlike everything I have ever done before. The two lovely Navajo gentlemen who escorted us were excellent riders and raced us across the planes. It was the most surreal thing I have ever done. The beautiful views,... More

We showed up in Monument Valley in our Jaguar convertible and quickly concluded that we could not self guide the monuments of the park. There are many options for guided tours but most of them seemed to involve larger parties. So we chose Sacred Monument because they allowed us to design our own trip--time, vehicle, pickup location, preference for spending... More

We did a two hour horseback tour and the three hour sunset jeep tour with Jimerson Tsosie. I cannot put into words the experience we had in the valley. JT is an outstanding guide. He shared so much of himself with us; his heritage, music, and the Navajo culture. By the end of the day, my husband and I felt... More

My wife and I have been wanting to visit Monument Valley since we were children. We were somewhat aware of the many monuments from all the John Wayne movies. We wanted to learn more and booked a tour with Sacred Monuments Tours, just because of the name, and, we would get a Native American as a tour guide. Our tour... More
