Your tour starts at a designated meeting point inside Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park, where you'll meet your guide for your exploration of Monument Valley's rock formations and Navajo culture, which has been part of this land for many generations and whose teachings have been inherited through the years. Some of these teachings are shared with your during your tour.
Make your first stop at John Ford's Point, where some of John Wayne's western movies were filmed, and then head into the backcountry area of the park to see Sun's Eye Arch and visit a hogan for a Navajo demonstration. Standing at Sun's Eye Arch at a specific spot, you can look into the rock arch to find out how it got its name. Also at this location, check out petroglyphs from the Anasazi people and listen to stories from your guide.
Next, head to the Big Hogan, another natural feature, for more photo ops and stories before visiting your last backcountry attraction, the Ear of the Wind, the largest arch in the park.
Continue to the Totem Pole and Yei Bi Cheii monuments for more photographs and to hear about their cultural histories, and then visit the North Window, where you can admire the Mittens Buttes from a different perspective. Your tour then ends with return to your departure point.
Please note: Each guide's stories vary, as they have different stories to tell, which come from their personal experiences, Navajo culture, and lore and legends.
