My wife and I spent the day at Crow Canyon on their all day tour. It was an amazing tour, led first by Tom Wolf, and later by Cara McCain. We learned how real archeology is done. And why it is so important.

Thanks for your detailed review. We couldn't have said it better ourselves! We appreciate your kind words.
Just a great tour. I learned a lot about the Hopi Culture and having a Hopi Archaeologist leading the group made it unforgettable. Staff could not be more helpful. Nice group of fellow travelers and a good pace. Would highly recommend.

Well organized, knowledgeable scholars, good food! This was my third or fourth tour with Crow Cyn. Takes participants to places not often available to the public at large. Great learning experiences for those interested in Native culture and art.
First class trip, good hotels, good pace, great travelers and scholars. The staff was helpful in planning. The trip was well paced, the sites fabulous including ruins, museums a caving experience and a trip to a local artists studio. restaurants were local and well chosen
