I did the north rim drive (because I visited in the morning and the north rim is more favorable for photography at that time). There is still active farming on the floor of the canyon. Extremely steep canyon walls. Some tragic events for the Navajo...More

TJ was a knowledgeable guide who was sure to show us many prime locations in the canyon. He was polite and patient with each member of the party. It rained the night before so were able to enjoy some muddy 4 wheeling!

Took a tour with Canyon de Chelly Tours. Angela was wonderful and gave us such great information and insight into this magical place. She is knowledgeable and charismatic and guided us through this amazingly beautiful, powerful, and magnificent place.

What an experience! We spent 2 full days and 3 nights. The first day we toured the South Canyon floor with a Navajo Guide (required) in a Jeep. Although not cheap, the Canyon tour is a must and cash is the usual form of payment....More

The National Monument is an absolute must see if one is interested in the history of the Navajo tribe. Petroglyphs abound in the canyon as do ancient dwellings. The canyon rim drive is nice but hiring an actual Navajo guide to go through the canyon...More

This was such a beautiful canyon. Great hiking to the bottom. However, just realize it's not an easy hike back up for everyone. Make sure you take water along, and realize your limitations when deciding on hiking down. This canyon is worth the drive!

Wonderful trip !! Well worth a visit.... we hired a car and were able to visit all the sights. Make sure if you go during Independence Day 4th July that you book in advance.

As spectacular as the Grand Canyon, without the crowds. Definitely worth taking a tour. It's in the middle of nowhere, and the town of Chinle has nothing else as a draw, but the sandstone formations are beautiful.

Silly!! No gold other than the golden memories in your heart. Our guide had a role in that movie so we did have a brush of a connection.

Yes, as the earlier answers indicate but you see so much more from a canyon floor tour. Yes, it will cost $70-80 for a 4-5 hour tour but so worth it to have your own photos & a lifetime of memories!
