What a great combo day tour. A unique scenic adventure. Monument Valley Tribal Park and the East-End of the Grand Canyon at Desert View and Navajo Point on the same tour. Three of the most popular attractions in Arizona and the Southwest. Sightseeing in the comfort of a Mercedes-built touring van with soft leather Captain’s chairs. Limited to 8* guests (a leather console seat is available for a 9th* guest for a small person) for maximum leg room. 6′ 3″ ceiling height with wide-view windows.
The journey begins at your point of lodging in Flagstaff. The drive north goes past the San Francisco Peaks, the tallest mountain range in Arizona. Simply beautiful in all seasons.
Scenic drive to the Little Colorado River Canyon Overlook near where the Little Colorado River merges with the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon. Enjoy the canyon views while checking-out authentic Native American crafts and jewelry at the open-air Navajo Indian marketplace.
On to the east-end of the Grand Canyon which many believe has the best views of the Canyon. Stop at Desert View Lookout and the historic Desert View Watchtower. Climb the tower and absorb the incredible views across the Canyon with the Colorado River below.
A short drive to Navajo Point where the sights are even more astounding with views of Comanche Point, canyon walls to the north and the snaking Colorado River. Photo-taking opportunities galore.
On to Monument Valley through Tuba City, the largest town on the Navajo Indian Reservation. A brief stop before continuing on to Monument Valley and the first views of red buttes, monoliths and spires that rise 400 to 1200 feet above the valley floor.
Proceed to historic Goulding’s Lodge and Navajo Trading Post. Have lunch. Try the authentic Indian Fry Bread Tacos. If you feel the desire, shop for Navajo made crafts and jewelry in the open-air markets. Bargain with the artisans themselves.
Short drive to the Navajo Indian Park Monument Valley Visitors Center, the heart of the 39,000 acres of Monument Valley. Our Silver Spur Guide will drive you to some of the popular view points of buttes, monoliths, spires, and mesas.
The Navajos, to whom the Monument Valley territory belongs, have a prayer that runs, in part…….
“In beauty may you walk.
With beauty before you may you walk.
With beauty behind you may you walk.
With beauty above you may you walk.
With beauty below you may you walk.
With beauty all around you may you walk.”
