|Half-Day Tour (4 hours)
Minimum of 4 people. You have a choice of Monument Valley or nearby Mystery Valley.
Mystery Valley offers many ancient, beautiful and well-preserved Anasazi dwellings, petroglyphs and pictographs, as well as natural arches. The Anasazi Indians lived throughout this area before they disappeared 800 years ago. Because few tours go there, Mystery Valley is a very quiet and peaceful place. $90 per person.
The half-day Monument Valley tour includes additional photo opportunities, additional ruins and petroglyphs, and a short walk to Hidden Arch. Also $90 per person.

Hunt's Mesa Photo Tour
This is a very rough road and not good for people with back problems.
It takes 2 to 2.5 hours to drive to the top of Hunt's Mesa. It takes the same amount of time to get off the mesa so we have to leave the top 1.5 hours before sunset.
We camp overnight on the mesa. We start from the Visitor's Center 5 hours before sundown. Once we are on top of the mesa we drop you off where you will photograph
the sunset. After sundown we go into camp for a hot supper. Next morning we go to a different location to photograph the sunrise. After breakfast we head back down the mesa and back at the Visitor's Center around 10:00 or 11:00 am.
We can provide everything like tents, sleeping bags and mats. Do bring your own flashlight and good hiking boots and pillows.
We will need to know if anyone is on a diet restriction.
1 or 2 people $275.00 (+5% tax) per person.
3 or more people $250.00 (+5% tax) per person.
Custom Group Tours
We enjoy creating custom tours for groups of all sizes. We have also organized very successful workshops for photo groups. Tour operators and organizers should contact us directly with your needs.
Things to Remember
To Book Your Tour
If you would like to arrange a special photo tour, or multi-day tour, or a tour for a large group, it is always a good idea to contact us well in advance. Monument Valley is still a rugged, rural location, almost a wilderness, with only sketchy phone service, and reliable email. So please call us at:
