We were at 5.15 a.m. at the meeting point and waited until 5.35. No one of blackwater tours appeared and we could nobody reach on the phone. Luckily there was an... More

I contacted several companies looking for an all day private tour for four that would not just be sitting in a vehicle all the time -- we wanted to do some walking. Unlike Canyon de Chelly, where an all day tour is all day, an all day tour in Monument Valley is 6 hours. The tours seem to be fairly... More

By going on a tour of Monument Valley we experienced so much more than we possibly could by self driving. Firstly, we were able to travel off the main roads as well as hearing stories that you wouldn’t get if you drove yourself. The sunrise tour seemed the best option for us – and it didn’t disappoint! The views were... More

My husband and 11 year old son did the half day tour. Our tour guide was Parick, a soft spoken and excellent tour guide. We loved riding in the outdoors in the back of his truck. Our son rode indoors with him and we could see them chatting. Patrick is young enough to get along with a child and also... More

We recently did the 2 and a half our tour with Perry of Blackwater Tours who arrived promptly at the scheduled time. Perry was a great guide and provided us with much local knowledge about all we saw and he allowed up adequate time at each stop to take photos and enjoy it all. Our tour included a trip inside...

We have been travelling for 6 months across Canada and the U.S and have seen wonderful sights across this vast country. We have always wanted to visit the wonderful Monument Valley and today we had the opportunity.. We were lucky to get Willie Blackwater to take us out to the restricted area only available to see with a guide. Willie... More

My husband and I booked an all day tour with Blackwater Tours. We never knew that Monument Valley was vast, and had a long history of it's own. Our tour guide "Willie", was very insightful, and fun to be with. We spent the whole day driving into canyons, back roads, and over sand dunes. We did take a trip into... More

We had the great fortune to take a tour of Monument Valley with Blackwater Tours in early November. It was a cold morning, but we'd been up early to see sunrise over the Mittens. Our guide, Patrick, turned up right on time. The first thing he told us was that we (the two of us and our 5yr old son)... More

My wife and I returned 2 weeks ago from a 2 1/2 week Arizona vacation. One of the hightlights was our tour of Monument and MYSTERY Valley. Our tour guide Willie was fantastic. We wound up having a private tour which made it that much more enjoyable. Especially after seeing some of the other group tours being cramped and cold.... More
