We arrived late enough to not have to pay admission. We camped in the campground next to the store. It was cramped, buy adequate. We watched the sunset. There is a "road" which will take you through the valley. A high clearance vehicle is recommended....More

As we arrived we were surprised by a USD 20 entrance fee - basically only value against was the view ! Stood overnight with our RV at the camp and had the next morning a fatalistic 2.5 hour tour with Dinah Bekeyah Tour - perfect...More

If you go after 6.30pm it’s free to drive up and watch the sunset. If you get there before 7am free again otherwise I think it’s about $20 to go in, that does however give you several days to go back. Definitely recommend going down...More

I went on this vacation solely to see Monument Valley. It was spectacular and did not disappoint. The red sandstone formations and vastness was amazing. I could not, however, give this a perfect score because the road was miserable. You drive one way and most...More

I had seen Monument Valley on TV travelogs, in magazines and pictures, and of course several movies.(especially John Wayne-John Ford movies) But those films and pictures don't do the valley justice. The formations were incredible. Gave a sense of how small we are. We paid...More

I didn't think too much of Monument Valley riding in from the Arizona side, once you stop and look back though it's simply amazing. There are plenty of places along the road where you can pull up and take photos, it was rather busy when...More

Many people have seen this place in various movies. It's even more incredible when viewed in person. One tip - the road in is very bumpy. Be prepared for that. Otherwise, it's incredible.

This place was absolutely amazing in the beauty of all the formations. You feel like you are in the old west since this was the shooting location for several western films. We camped at the campground on site which presented an awesome sunset and amazing...More

Stay in the Navajo hotel at the top of the valley if you get the chance. Food and views are great, and all of the rooms face the valley so you can kick back on your balcony and watch the sun set.

It can be done but lots of driving. All the sights listed have to be seen in the day and lower antelope canyon is one you really do not want to miss. As long as you keep moving and are up early and drive late it could be... More

There are several different tours (horses, trucks) to take advantage of with varying lengths. Tripadvisor is a great place to research this. I do think they would enjoy. It is a beautiful place.
