Beauty Way Jeep Tours formally known as De Chelly Tours offers Half Day and All Day Vehicle tours into Canyon De Chelly National Monument.

Ya'at'eeh (hello) to all our family and friends! We are all thrilled to announce that this summer marks our 25th Anniversary as an established tour company in Canyon de Chelly, Arizona!! As a young man, my great grandfather, Chauncey Neboyia, first led groups of archeologist and others into the canyon, and eventually helped it to become a National Monument in 1931. Over the next few decades he would teach his children and grandchildren about the history, stories, and traditions of the canyons, and it was here where my father, Daniel Staley (grandson of Chauncey) picked up his vast knowledge of the canyons and all its wonders.

Chauncey first led groups by foot, horse and wagon, then over the years Daniel started adding 4x4 vehicles and established "De Chelly Tours" as the first Navajo-owned tour business in Canyon de Chelly in 1989. We are the longest running Navajo family-owned and operated tour company in Canyon de Chelly that offers 4x4 tours, hiking and camping. We are so very happy and proud of our family's legacy and I feel completely honored to be the one to continue the family business and take it to new levels and share our beautiful home with you all. I feel like I learn something new about the canyon all the time and I hope to someday have as much knowledge of the canyon as my father and great grandfather.

We took a morning tour and were picked up at our hotel. The jeep was comfortable and we saw some amazing Anasazi ruins along the way. We were behind another jeep for most of the way and were able to get a lot of information from that tour guide. Our guide was an older gentleman who was knowledgeable about the... More

We got up close to petroglyphs, saw cool ruins, great rock formations, colorful trees and landscape... and had a picnic! Our guides told of about the history behind the Canyon and offered great info.

Three of us took a fantastic 5 hour Beauty Way jeep tour with Ben as our guide. Ben grew up in the Canyon and we also enjoyed meeting some of his extended family who live there. He shared very interesting stories about his life, Navajo culture, and the history of the Canyon and its residents over the centuries. He went... More

Going to Canyon de Chelly was a life wish for me and this company and guide James Yazzie fulfilled it in an over the top way. The beauty and mystery of the canyon and ruins are unique but it was the background we learned from James, a ninth generation CdC resident, that made it really special. By the way the... More

He demonstrated n atlatl which he made himself. We went to his aunts home and watched her comb wool and make a blanket. The canyon is so much better when viewed from the canyon floor This... More

This is a review of Beauty Way Jeep Tours, but more specifically one of the Guides – “TJ” Hunter. On the phone, the Business owner was helpful and accommodating in setting up reservations, and the negotiation of prices & discounts. The equipment used which I saw were all “convertible top” jeeps, which make for a better sight-seeing opportunity for the... More

Having only used Beauty Way for a jeep tour of Canyon de Chelley, I have nothing to compare it to, and there are quite a few tour operators. So is 4 too high? I thought it was a good tour, maybe not very good, but well worth it (we did a 3 hour tour). There were 4 of us and... More
