I could tell by the number of contacts with Bobby VanWinkle that he was most interested that my friend and I have a quality, 3-hour tour. It was to be hot the day when we toured--he was concerned for our comfort and suggested we go in an air-conditioned vehicle. We were very comfortable and the fact that we were not in an open-top jeep did not negatively impact our visit at all. Our driver, Dennis, who has QUITE the personal history (military service, childhood in canyon, and rodeo rider), kept us entertained with local history and Navajo lore. He was soft spoken and respectful, as I find most Navajo folks to be. Our one problem with the tour was he refused to marry us both so we could move onto Navajoland and enjoy the peace and beauty he sees every day. Oh well, we tried. We both highly recommend this tour to everyone wanting a genuine experience of Canyon de Chelly. We're a little bit sorry we didn't take a longer tour, as the 3 hours went quickly.
