After researching several tour companies for Monument Valley, we decided to go with Majestic Monument Valley Touring Company and were delighted with our decision. Realizing that our timeframe was limited, with a lengthy round-trip drive from Flagstaff, we opted for the half-day private tour and met John, our guide, at the View Hotel as arranged in advance. John was an amazing tour guide, so informative about Navajo culture and history as it pertained to the park's sights and landmarks. His narrative was both educational and anecdotal, and we felt fortunate to have him as our guide. He was also extremely courteous and accommodating of our wishes to have photos of ourselves taken along the tour and to linger when we needed a few extra moments at certain stops. Above all, it was immediately apparent that the drive through the park is a challenging one for any vehicle, and we were relieved that we'd decided to leave our rental car parked in the paved lot and rely on John's expertise at navigating the rutted and dusty roads. We also would highly recommend the extra expense of a private tour, as sharing the trip with a larger group would have diminished the effect of this overwhelming and enriching experience-- we truly felt that we were part of a mystical landscape that transported us to the world of the Navajo with John as the guide on our journey. A wonderful, memorable part of our Arizona vacation!
