Your tour begins through Monument Valley's natural attractions.

With your guide, make your first stop at John Ford's Point, where some of John Wayne's western movies were filmed, as well as 'Transformers: Age of Extinction.' Then head into the backcountry area of Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park to see the Sun's Eye Arch. Standing here at a specific degree, 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.

Then continue to the Big Hogan, another natural feature that's a favorite photo op site, before stopping at your last backcountry attraction, the Ear of the Wind, the largest arch in the park.

Next, head to the Totem Pole for more photo ops and to hear about their cultural histories, and then visit the North Window, where you can admire the Mitten Butte from a different perspective. Your tour then ends with return to your departure point.

This tour ended up being only my kids and me. It was absolutely amazing! We got to go deep into the park and see arches and petroglyphs that you normally can't see. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable about the geology and history. She took our photos and even played music for us! I wish I could remember her name but I recommend 100%!

Spectacular tour with a Native guide. Very insightful with cultural insight. Highly recommended for an exclusive tour in the park areas most tourists don't get to see.

Absolutely fabulous tour by Derik Holliday. The Monument Valley was spectacular, but the cultural insights provided by Derik were the real highlight. We plan to come back for the cultural tour in the future and request Derik.

This 2.5 hour guided tour was fantastic. Steven, our guide provided so much detailed information that was both interesting and fascinating. Plus, it was a cold day and we were afraid we were going to be in the open air vehicle, but Steven brought the Tahoe which was much more comfortable. He showed us sights you won't see on the normal drive and explained much. Great experience!
