You can visit more sites than yourself, get explaintions and they are very kind.
We took the Navajo Culture tour during a cross-country trip of 3500 miles, and this was the BEST thing we did!! Our guide was knowledgeable, kind, funny, and very skilled at showing us the best places to photograph the amazing spots in Monument Valley. We felt like we were visiting with a dear friend. I highly recommend this tour.
I had an amazing time! I had a tour for my own and got showed whatever I wanted to see. Stopped at a lot of different points for some great photos, stopped at a hogan where I had an interesting conversation with a nice lady living there. I felt very comfortable and welcomed! Thank you so much for this great experience! Nadine
We were initially disturbed that our tour was to take place in an open air trailer with the wind blowing briskly and the temperature was only 40 degrees. But when the tour guide returned with an enclosed vehicle we were much more comfortable and enjoyed the tour immensely. The guide was very informative and seemed to enjoy his work.
Very knowledgeable guide! Professional attitude- took us to great places. Explained why the location was special. Excellent driver. Would use him again anytime! Thank you!
Nice guide who was very helpful pointing out good locations and shooting angles
Our tour guide was a very nice man. He took us on a very good tour and talked a lot about his heritage and the Navajo people. He even sang to us.
It was an amazing experience and our guide was very friendly.
Great explanations from the guide, amazing view and landscape discovering. Nice moment
The guide was very knowledgeable and very friendly. He gave us more than enough time to explore the area. The vehicle was a 4-wheel drive enclosed vehicle which protected against the elements as opposed to an open air vehicle that other tours used. Would highly recommend Phillips Photography Tours to friends and family.
