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!

My wife and had wanted to visit Canyon de Chelly and Chaco Canyon for years and were able to do so this year. After researching tour options we chose AZ Jeep Tours and are very, very glad we did so. We selected the 6-hour tour and saw awesome sights and learned a great deal from our Navajo Guide. The weather... More

We were so grateful for our guide Richard. He was very knowledgeable and accommodating for our larger group. The kiddos loved the off roading and the adults loved the great history. The canyon was absolutely gorgeous! Would highly recommend this company/tour!!!

We were without phone reception until we reached Chinle so did not make prior tour reservation. There are so many tour groups listed it's just a sea of names; we called this group from a flyer we had picked up and they were kind enough to send a guide (Richard) over as a last minute reservation that afternoon. Our tour... More

From the Danielson five: We had taken a trip to Monument Valley and on a whim, we decided to take the extra time to go see Canyon De Chelly. We could not have received a better tour guide than Reggie. He not only educated us in the history of the ancient pueblo indians, the botany and geology of the area,... More

We had a wonderful tour through the canyon with Twin Trails Tour. Our guide Harold was very knowledgeable and did a great job explaining different things in the canyon and showing us the ruins. This is a tour that I will take again.

We went on a 4pm Canyon De Chelly jeep tour of the canyon floor on September 25th, 2016. We had the best young Navajo Guide "Richard" who made sure we had all the time needed to take great photos. He also told us about the history of the Canyon & the people of the past & present. Richard is a... More

Through a recommendation from a friend, three of us were fortunate to find Leon Skyhorse's sister Leona and our personal tour guide Reginald Etcitty who led us through all the wonders of the Canon. Reginald's knowledge of the Canon's history, its pueblos, its petroglyph art, its plants, its animal life, stimulated us to learn more about the Navaho and early... More

Our second visit to Canyon de Chelly was much anticipated as this time we planned a whole day tour with Canyon de Chelly Tours to visit Mummy Cave. Our guide Leone made the trip fascinating with her recounting of the area's history, telling us of the people who lived there in the distant past and those who live there today.... More
