My wife and I did the 8hr. tour of Canyon de Chelly on August 13th. Harold was our guide and did a superb job of explaining the history of the Canyon, the cliff dwellings, and other information as questions were asked. Be prepared, the 8...More
Our guide Harold took us for a 4 hour adventure around the canyon and offered a lot of local history as well as personal stories about growing up in the canyon and his native heritage. Very interesting and the scenery and history was wonderful. Stops...More
Canyon de Chelly is a bit off the beaten path, and since we thought of this as a once-in-a-lifetime experience, we decided to book a full day tour through the Thunderbird Lodge. We weren't disappointed.
There were only 5 of us on the tour, so...More

I agree, the 1/2 tour was just fine. We spent the next day driving the rim and taking all the look outs and seeing where we'd been the day before. We bought our tour tickets the day before in the trading post. They took out 2 tours that am. We felt their trucks had a much better view than those in cover topped Jeeps.
