We traveled through Canyon de Chelly the end of April and had a wonderful experience. Percy, our guide, was quite knowledgeable and shared not only stories of the Canyon but also his childhood. Don't know if they were true but made for a grand time. Our transportation was an old Ford Explorer with a trick door that we never could figure out how to open from the inside. But after going over ruts, through the river, sand and mud we were quite thankful for the Explorer and Percy's driving ability. We toured in the morning and missed a lot of the afternoon traffic.
Of all the things that were recommended to us to bring, binoculars was the most important. Going the end of April we felt we missed hot weather and crowds though as were ending our tour around noon we passed a lot of tours coming into the Canyon. An added note to our adventure, we left a camera in Percy's car and Irene tracked him down and returned our camera. We would recommend Canyon de Chelly tours not only for the knowledge their guides have of the Canyon but also their service.
