The Navajos fully have Monument Valley under their thumb - it's their land, after all. There is a lovely complex right outside Monument Valley with a decent restaurant and some shopping. It's a hotel too but extremely overpriced. You can drive your own vehicle into the park after paying a small fee, so don't feel like you have to have... More

We paid the $20 car entrance fee and it was worth it. You can drive the 17mile loop but it's dirt track and we had a hire care and they don't recommend cars doing it just 4x4. We did the wildcat trail - it was amazing - we didn't see another person the whole time - it about 4 miles... More

We are so glad we went. The views were stunning. We had no problem driving on the dirt road in our rental sedan with a V6 engine. Of course it had not rained in 7 days, so the road was not muddy at all. (We had read many reviews of people going with tour groups after reading/hearing horror stories of... More

This was such a worthwhile trip. Visually stunning. Adding to the local Navajo economy was a bonus of the visit.

GORGEOUS! Especially in late winter with the snow to set off the red formations, though 4WD is recommended as melting snow + red mud = some slick hills. Also - wear boots! :)

There are tours available which take visitors to various parts of the park on trips that can last in excess of 4 hours, but for those on a limited time line, there is a self-drive option which lets one see the major attractions and complete the drive in 2 – 3 hours. There is also a 4 hour walk which... More

We did the half-day tour with Golding’s tour, which also has a Lodge where we stayed in. It was a little expensive but it was worth as it is a hard area to drive in unless you have a 4x4 vehicle. The tour started at 9am and it was COLD.. Unfortunately, it a little could at first and the first... More

We set out early - around 7.30am - to drive around the tribal park. The views are as spectacular as you would imagine. There are a lot of people hawking tourist tat so be aware of that! It's also worth driving yourself as long as you have a vehicle capable of driving on the off-road surface - it's $90ish per... More

Not crowded during late January. Even better than I expected. Made the loop drive in rented Hyundai elantra without problems. If severely pressed for time, drive to the three sisters at least.
