Elliott was an excellent tour guide! And we were surprised and pleased to have an entire tour to ourselves. Elliott never rushed the tour and took the time to answer all our questions and point out everything. It was wonderful! Thank you so much!
Pleasant, informative and good photo sites
We wanted a personal tour showing the delights of Monument Valley away from the majority of other visitors. Dan was extremely helpful in this so much so that we booked to go with him to Mystery Valley as well. Two trips that were thoroughly enjoyable, would recommend this to anyone who wants to get away from the crowds.
We want to give special thanks to Tully, our guide. He was very informative, providing valuable advice at each stop along the tour to maximize our photographic experience. At one site he pointed out a tree that, from a particular angle, framed one of the natural arch features. There is no way we would have found that on our own.
The Tour with Ray was so beautiful and interesting for us.
Our guide was great at pointing out wonderful photography spots, one we would never have seen. He was quiet and didn't talk out heads off, which I appreciated. This trip was a scouting trip for future photography in the Valley and he was very helpful toward that purpose. Great driver on those roads!
Met our expectations. Our guide (Tully?) was very helpful and personable and used his local knowledge to help us get the shots we desired. He had an appreciation for the needs of the photographer. It was also good to be in a regular 4WD comfortable vehicle, rather than the open trucks some use. Would recommend.
Phillips Photography Tours private 4 hour tour took us to places you would never see when visiting Monument Valley. It is the only way to see ancient Indian ruins, beautiful vistas and get great photographic opportunities. PJ
