I visited Monument Valley 20 years ago and had a wonderful guide, Harold Simpson. We visited again and even though they have put up a fancy hotel on the reservation, it is still a wonderful place to visit. Just know that you have to take the guided tours into the valley and these are
conducted by Navajo guides. You can drive your own car to a certain point but need a guide to go further into the valley. It is very rough terrain and the guided trucks are a better choice to see the valley. We learned that you can get a better rate if you pay with cash!!!!
It is very dusty and very bumpy because these are open air trucks. Take water and shoes that
you can walk in the red dirt and sand. We took the three hour tour and enjoyed it so much. The colors in valley are prettier in the morning or early afternoon. They will make frequent stops to point out the different rock formations and there are Navajo jewelry makers at each stop.
Well worth our time and the expense.
