Overview

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!

Our guide Reginald gave an amazing tour, not only showing us the sites in Canyon De Chelly but telling us hundreds of years of history from when the Navaho people's first came to the canyon. Highly recommend and ask for Reginald.

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!!!
