I've driven through Monument Valley several times before but this time my wife and I stayed at Goulding's Lodge RV Campground in our motorhome. Although the accommodations are not really deluxe they are very adequate and well maintained. We ate dinner one night in the lodge restaurant and it was very very good. I had a steak and my wife...

I got the appetizer of the 4 navajo tacos that had chili, cheese, lettuce, and tomatoes on it. It was a huge portion and you definitely could split it with another person as a full meal. Their hot chocolate was amazing. The gift shop is very nice and I ended up buying a couple of hand painted water pitchers that... More

First note: the day was totally fog bound and the temperature hovering around zero all day. This had an impact on the tour. No one's fault - but if possible check the weather before booking Second note: the vehicle is open backed with roll down plastic screens. Draughty and cold on this day. Screens were also dirty and hard to... More

We had the all-day tour, conducted by Joseph. It was excellent. We toured the main valley in the morning, seeing the monuments, visiting a Navajo weaver in her hogan, seeing arches in the sandstone. In the afternoon, we were taken to Mystery Valley, seeing and hiking up to and across arches, and visiting Anasazi cliff dwellings. Joseph has lived in... More

We took the Gouldings tour of Monument Valley in Oct. and recommend it highly. If we had driven through the area on our own, we would have missed so much. Our tour guide, Larry, was fabulous! He was both informative and entertaining, keeping us actively involved throughout the tour. He showed us the best spots for photo opportunities, told us... More

Just got back from a girl's Sedona vacation yesterday, and the highlight of our visit was our day trip to this area. If you love Cowboy movies and learning about the gentle Navajo's and their history take the Basic Tour and ask for Benet, a wealth of proud knowledge. Goulding's lunch afterwards at the lodge, was excellent. Enjoy.

If you believe white it the right color for sunny environment of Monument Valley, you will end up ruining your clothing before you are finished taking this tour. Sitting in the back of one of their open-air trucks will expose you to loads of red dust especially if you are following another vehicle into the valley and the wind is... More

As part of our trip to Monument Valley we wanted to take a guided tour and decided on Goulding's all day tour which included both Mystery Valley and Monument Valley with lunch being provided. The day started out a bit rainy and the particular truck we had did not have the roll down plastic screens so it make the first... More
