Canyon De Chelly Tours is an enterprise of Leon Skyhorse Thomas. Every guide is a professional, certified by the National Park Service by examination. In addition to tours of the Canyon de Chelly National Monument, cultural consulting needs are addressed on a case by case basis for those who seek a more intimate insight onto the Navajo Way. Leon has assisted film-makers on location in Navajoland and is used to delivering high quality services to the people and organizations he serves.There are over 2700 archaeological sites within the many canyons of Canyon de Chelly National Monument. Only 13 of the 700 standing ruins have been stabilized, re-inforced, or protected from degradation. We are professional Navajo guides who can teach you the history of our canyons and about the Anasazi, Hopi and Navajo peoples. We pride ourselves in offering you more than just viewing our scenery - but we can do this too!

When traveling to Monument Valley--do not overlook this area. In some ways as spectacular as its neighbor. Viewed from both the floor of the canyon as well as the rim, amazing place!

A tour with a guide is the only way to see the inside of the Canyon. Otherwise, it is only accessible at the rim along paved roads. It is well worth the expense to go in the Canyon. Our tour guide was Henry, and we...More
