Owner description: Red cliff and canyon walls that are home to ancient Indian ruins.
Reviewed July 1, 2004

The real appeal of Canyon de Chelly is the canyon itself. There is a great deal to see.

You can't access the area unless you go with a Navajo guide. We did this, and it turned out to be the highlight of our 2 week road trip.

We were picked up at the Holiday Inn by Leander of Canyon de Chelly tours and headed out in an air-conditioned vehicle. Leander was very knowledgable and a really nice fellow to boot.

We made lots of stops, took way too many photos. Along the way, we learned about Navajo history and culture. I asked flora/fauna questions and Leander was able to answer them all. We had a really great time.

Very highly recommended.
