    Canyon de Chelly tours

    The wife & I are planning a trip to Canyon de Chelly around Sept 22 and 23. Are there any recommended tourguides that we should contact for a guided trip of the canyon?

    If I remember correctly what one of my friends said, it is easy to get a good guide when you get there.

    I don't play the piano, I don't have a beard and I listen to AC/DC in the darkroom. I have no hope as a photographer.

    I sent PAT a heads up on the REZ not being on the same time as the reat of the state. Pat said he knew. My wife and I went there about 20 years ago and we missed our tour because of this. Anyway a beautiful place to do photography.

    AZ does not observe DST and Navajo Nation does. Not sure about Hopi time. Good place to buy Hopi silver is Second Mesa.

    Re the Canyon tours, the most common when I was there about 20 years ago was what the Navajo call the 'shake & bake' where they put the tourists on a flatbed trailer and tow them through the area with a tractor. Sounds like you are looking for a private guide to take you around. Did you find this tour operator? Looks like they do both.

    Don't forget to carry extra water with you in your vehicle and buy gas when you get the opportunity.

    I checked with my friend.

    When he got there, my friend hired a private guide, who used his own [the guide's] four wheel drive vehicle to take him around. That way my friend did not have a crowd to deal with and the guide let him have all the time he wanted to take photographs at each place they stopped.

    I googled Canyon de Chelly tours first and there are quite a number of tours. I was looking for a recommendation to a particular guide that someone might have used and thought highly of. I'm looking at a private rather than large troop transport tour.

    Same - except that we hired a guide who drove our vehicle.
    That was a good few years ago. I'll be back for a second visit in September.
