Navaho Code Talkers Exhibit

Reviewed By Susan A - Kayenta, Arizona

As children, they were forced into BIA schools where they were beaten for using their native tongue. As men, they used that tongue and an elaborate code as an unbreakable "encryption " for radio messages during WW II combat missions. The small, but impressive, code talkers exhibit chronicles their story. Semper Fi!

Monument Valley Day Tours

Reviewed By Mark R

The fifteen mile drive may take four to six hours but you'll never miss the time. I killed two cameras here. The buttes, mesas, and spires are awesome. The color will be best early or late in the day. The afternoon washes out color but you'll still see more than you can believe. You pictures will suffer.

Navajo Cultural Center

Reviewed By oatografia - New City, New York

I was in the Code Talkers display (inside of burger king) and had to ask the burger king staff where the Navajo Cultural Center was because I almost left without seeing it, and thought that was inside of BK too. It was confusing to find this place, and it surely wasn't on Google maps. I was completely ignorant about Navajo life so it was good to learn something. I went into the hut (a HOGAN) and although it was about 75 degrees outside, it felt like 65 degrees inside. That was pretty awesome. I never knew those existed, and apparently these are very important and have many important uses on a reservation. Make sure to check this is you've come to Burger King.

We spent the afternoon on this most wonderful trip around the stunningly beautiful Monument Valley. What a spectacular part of the world.

The tour guide was great. We had a couple of stops at breath taking photo locations and the history and cultural talk by one of the native ladies who lives out there was fascinating.

The scenery is literally out of this world.

If you get the opportunity - this trip is an absolute must. You will not be disappointed!

Church Rock

Reviewed By Oldjack - Greater Melbourne, Australia

Just on the right as you travel towards Kayenta gis rugged rock formation stands out and from most angles it does look like a church. there is no signage otgher thsn it sits alongside Church Rock Creek and as best we could tell no driver access.It is a unique rock formation that could be of interest to tourists if better signed.

Crawley's Monument Valley Tours Day Tours

Reviewed By Nancy S - Longreach

We were picked up at our hotel by our guide Billy and spent 4 hours in his company. Monumental
Park was awesome and we thoroughly enjoyed Billy's company and knowledge. We learnt so much about the Navajo people, their believes, their culture and traditions. Each spot he took us to was even more beautiful than the previous. We were in a closed in four wheel drive opposed to an open vehicle which we were very grateful for as it was extremely windy and dusty. Make sure you ask for Billy, he has a wealth of knowledge to pass on and was also great company and a lot of fun.
