Excellent tour guided by Evonne. We got the best views of the formations and were also given a wealth information on the geology and local culture. She even played the flute for us inside a vaulted arch which sounded surreal. She took the best photos too! Loved every bit of this tour!


Great information about the sires we visited, Sheen also assisted us in taking some super photos and showed us things we would never have seen otherwise. The van was comfortable and being enclosed much better than the open trucks during a very windy sandstorm. Unfortunately this caused the sunset to be poor but that didn't detract from a great evening in good company.


What a wonder to see the sunrise in such a unique setting. Our guide Harry Nez was so kind and knew all the great spots and techniques to take the best photos. A one of a kind experience !


Great experience with friendly and kind atmosphere. Beautiful sunrise and thought provoking story telling


Was not very impressed with Comi. She did not offer information like we overheard other tour guides sharing. As a result we followed some of them around when we could for information. Also, we paid to take another tour with another company because we got so little from this one. I would not recommend your company to others or use again upon our return in the future. Your tour guides sell your business and she just doesn't have it.


We had a great tour with Roz. We caught the sun just right and she helped us take some great photos with our cell phones. We LOVED when she played her musical instrument while we enjoyed one of the caverns. Thank you so much for letting us take our dog with us. She loved the backcountry as much as we did. I would highly recommend taking a guided tour as you can’t see many of the beautiful places they are allowed to go unless you’re with a guide.


We took the Sunset tour. The inside knowledge of our guide was amazing, as were the tips she gave for the best photo locations. She had a great sense of humour. A very well-organized tour. We'd recommend the tour to anyone


We had a beautiful evening for our tour. Our guide Lee gave us a lot of info about the Navajo tribe. We had plenty of time to take tons of pictures. This is definitely a “must do” tour. Highly recommend.


I went on the sunrise tour with Lee, and we had a really good time. He knew where the sun was going to come out. Wven when it was cloudy, and he took us to some really amazing places. He is also a photographer and he taught us some photography tricks with our phones. He also takes some amazing pictures if you ask him to. We also went in a covered car on a cold morning, which was REALLY nice.


We did the sunset tour and it was amazing!!! I highly recommend the tour as you will get to see so much more than the public access road allows. I made the unfortunate mistake of dressing for the temperature without considering the wind and coldness of an open air jeep. The tour guide was very kind and allowed my daughter and I to use her beautiful Navajo blanket.
