  • We have visited Monument Valley twice and have taken the drive around it. It was well worth the money. Lots of things to see that you can't see from the highway. Tried to visit last year but unfortuna...  read more »
  • I believe that the Native Americans need to get all they can for how we've treated them and relegated them to second citizenship. Having said that, I wouldn't go into the Park again. The Visitors Cent...  read more »
  • We took a tour with Sheldon from Great Ventures tours. He was animated, entertaining and knowledgeable. Monument Valley has been the scene of so many western films (including "Once Upon a Time in the ...  read more »
  • Simply amazing. Few other places in this country look so beautiful and untouched. The Navajo people have worked hard to preserve this area and I'm very grateful. It's important to understand that many of the rules and regulations here are the only reason it has remained pristine. We paid only $26 for all 5 of us to visit for the whole day. I hope some day to spend at least a night here and go some of the longer tours.
  • Honestly, we were disappointed by the park. Although the rock formations are beautiful, the park itself is not managed well. Bad services compared to the NPS-managed parks. Not enough information for guests. The scenic drive is an extremely rough road, problematic to unpassable for cars with low clearance and no 4WD. No info signs whatsoever on the road, just signs with names of the formations. You won't learn anything about the meaning of the rocks for the Navajo people, why they are sacred and how are they tied to their way of life and history. No restrooms on the road. Only one hiking trail. No cell phone coverage.
  • Although it's not officially a National Park, it rates up there with the best. Spend two days hiking and exploring.....minimum. Stay with a Navajo family, like Ilene at Teardrop Arch Bed and Breakfast. Would you rather stay in a Hogan? Then stay with either Mark or Laurence in one of theirs. How about a covered wagon? Then stay with Baya and Paul on their working ranch. When you're ready to explore deep inside Monument Valley, be sure to contact Duffy Holiday as your tour guide. Eat fry bread. Watch the sunrise and sunset. Count stars. Eat more fry bread. And don't forget to visit Moki Dugway. Yá’át’ééh!!!
  • We were really happy, to come to Navajo territory. Until we actually arrived there. The staff was rude. The best area of the parking is for "employees only". When we were taking pictures, a guy on a horse shouted at us, to make us leave the view point (we figured out after, that tourists take pictures of this guy on his horse at that specific view point, and they give him tips : I understand he needs to work but he could have asked us to leave in a more polite way). To sum up, it was a huge shock for us, after the kindness and helpfulness of the Rangers in the National Parks. I give two stars because the landscapes are still amazing.
  • Came in the off season and it was dead - just how I like it. Didn't have to deal with all the vendors selling "handmade in china" Indian novelties. The landscape is absolutely stunning. Theres a neat backcountry road you can pay to go down with a jeep tour. Not really any hiking, mostly just driving around and exploring different viewpoints and areas. Just don't get scammed into the endless photo-ops and knick-knacks that abound on the res.
