Tour routes start at the Monument Valley drive entrance, not pick-up area. The 1.5 hour, 2.5 hour, and 3 hour times are routes identified by the park.

*Time and length of tour is based on the route taken for the tour reserved. Times are approximate and may be shortened or lengthen due to:

Participation – A party may choose not to exit the vehicle or stop at a location, this lessens the tour time. The tour route is still taken, thus is still the tour reserved.

Weather Conditions – Weather may become a factor. Rain, wind, snow, etc., may slow a tour, the usually lengthens a tour.

Congestion/Traffic – During the peak tourism months May through August, tour routes may become congested, this also lengthens tour time.

Park Activities – The Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park has full autonomy, and sometimes holds events for the public or Navajo Nation government. In the event of this happening, our tours will be re-routed to other tour routes, these deviations usually do not affect tour times or lengths.


Arrival without a reservation may result in higher fees due to an agreement set by the local tour operators and the Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park.

Printed rates from this site will not be honored upon your arrival without a reservation made from this website, booking partner, telephone call to our office, or on-site coordinator in advance. Without a reservation, prices, rates, etc., established at the Monument Valley tribal park will be applied.
