in 1992, I visited Canyon de Chelly and promised myself I'd go back someday. 22 years later, I finally did, this time with the family. it is a great place. We drove the north rim on Sunday afternoon for a few hours, then took a horse ride into the canyon with Tso's horse tours for just an hour. That was... More

This park is really spectacular. I agree with other reviewers about is being better than the Grand Canyon in accessibility and equally beautiful. There is no entrance fee, but there is a nice visitor center at the beginning of the canyon. The canyon gets deeper as you drive down the road. Spider Rock overlook is the deepest part and very...

Plenty of places to look around and take photographs. Amazing views and beautiful colours. Bring plenty of camera memory..

Spent the day at Canyon de Chelly. We thought it was better than the Grand Canyon as far as assessable to view and be able to walk down one of the stops the White House Ruins. There are tours with experienced drivers to drive down into the canyon, but we did not have enough time. Yes, the Native Americans set... More

We stayed 2 nights in the Best Western motel which was excellent. The high light of our trip was the jeep trip provided by Canyon de Chelly Beauty Way Jeep Tours. The Navajo gentleman that gave us the 3 hour tour was an excellent guide, who had been raised in the canyon. Dave shared many interesting things with us. We... More

The best part of the trip was the hike down into the canyon to see the White House Ruins! Be prepared for the Navajos who set up their wares for sale at each view point.

We stayed 2 nights in the park at the Sacred Canyon Lodge. It's old but we liked it because it felt as though we were at camp. The 4 hour open jeep ride, booked through Canyon de Chelly Tours, was a blast and well worth the money. Perry was good humored and good hearted. Incredibly informative and shared some of... More

This is a rare find in my book -- a wonderful, beautiful, spiritual spot just 4 hours from Albuquerque. I could have stayed longer than the two days I did, although two days is sufficient if you are just going to do a jeep tour and visit the overlooks. To get the most of the experience, though, I think you... More

Canyon de Chelley was more beautiful than we expected. We were fortunate to book a jeep tour of this canyon through Changing Woman Cafe and Tours. I highly recommend this as you get some history and the view of the ruins from within the canyon is infinitely better than the view from the rim. You may only go into the... More
