Our GPS couldn’t find Sand Canyon Pueblo, but led us instead to Crow Canyon Archaeological Center. A good thing, as we learned far more about Sand Canyon there from the friendly woman who took her time to show us around. The actual Sand Canyon site...More

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.
