to Monument Valley Tours, the tour that will make your trip unforgettable.
Monument Valley Tours is a Navajo-owned company in Monument Valley. Our tour guides will give you first hand experiences of their culture
and customs of their everyday lives. We will take you to places where
few people have ventured and let you enjoy nature's marvelous sandstone
creations. It will be a spiritual experience for some, and for others
it will simply be indescribable.
We are Dineh, which means "The People", and we have
survived years and years of changes. We have endured and we shall endure
again for years to come, but for now, we would like to share with you
our culture which not too many people know about.
The Navajos are a proud and happy people. The stories are told in hogans of
the many obstacles that were overcome by many a Navajo family. Stories and
myths that were acquired through generations before, are being revived through
books that are written about the Navajos, but there have been countless
stories that have been lost because we had no written language.
There are signs of ancient habitation in the valleys
and box canyons all around this area. Here you'll see the petroglyphs,
pictographs, and Anasazi dwellings of the "Ancient Ones". Take a trip
back in time among these ancient surroundings.
See the places where there once were ancient families
living among the gigantic red buttes. To see their dwelling places, to
picture in your mind the hardships they endured, will make it a memory
Monument Valley is a unique place. There is no other
place like this on earth. It is like a Holy Land for many, and a place
of worship for many Medicine Men who still hold their daily ceremonial
rituals here. Many of the plants that grow here are
used year round, whether it is for food, herbs, dyes, or many other useful
Mother Earth is truly a land of wonder. We hope you
enjoy the beauty that surrounds us and "Walk in Beauty with the Navajos".
