Week long educational outing with a small group that was really educational and fun. Seeing Bear's Ears National Monument for the first time was breathtaking. The depth of knowledge from the scholars and coordinators on the excursion was very helpful. Our native cultures are still alive and well and we all should explore while we have the opportunity. Crow Canyon respects our Native American lands and wants to preserve and share with everyone.

I have travelled with Crow Canyon more than 8 times; mostly in the Southwest. I would label this travel adventure travel. You are in a small group with at least two scholars, one an archeologist and one a related field. I have learned so much and had access to so many archeological sites I would not otherwise be allowed to visit. The trip leaders are full time employees who are very professional and experienced. These trips are unique learning experiences. Additionally, I have developed many lasting friendships with other persons I have met on the trips....we all share common interests which adds to our own experiences.

Just got back from my third week-long tour of sites in Chaco Canyon, the Mississippi valley and then the pre-Columbian sites in northern Mexico. These are small groups lead by world-class archeologists that really get in touch with the culture. Support staff are uniformly competent and helpful. Many of your companions are avid amateur archelogists themselves.Be prepared for less than deluxe accomodations and not a lot of standard tourist attractions.

I found out about this place through a brochure at my hotel. It was already too late to book for a tour the next day, but I showed up anyway for their free scheduled one-hour tour. It turns out I was the only person that showed up so I ended up getting a one-on-one tour with their chief mission officer who took me around several of the buildings and gave me a basic overview of the work they carried out there. I enjoyed her taking me in the artifact room where I could see the trays of stuff the archaeologists had dug up and had to sort through. Nice that they have free brief overview to give you a taste of what to expect on the larger paid activities
