We took a Back Country tour with Majestic Monument Valley Tour Company, and were simply delighted with our choice. Since I have some issues with my back, I had requested a closed vehicle, and beyond that, it seemed a more pleasant way to experience those roads than in one of the open-air transportation vehicles. We were also looking for a private tour, which they offered for the same price as group tours from some of the other companies.
Jon, our guide, was the perfect person to show us this magnificent area - explaining the rock formations, telling stories as we drove along, being careful to go slowly over the deep ruts - we learned not only about the geography, but also about the Navajo people. As Jon speaks Navajo, we were able to hear some of the language, which has a pleasant musical quality - a lovely addition to the tour. He also played a tune at the Big Hogan, a natural amphitheater, surrounding us with the sounds of the Navajo land, transporting us to a sense of peace and history.
The valley is an incredible part of nature, and seen even more exquisitely with a guide who shares his love and knowledge of the area. The warmth and friendliness of this company, and especially Jon, will stay with us. Thank you, Jon, for a perfect morning.
