I was hoping to do both Monument Valley and Valley of the Gods when I visit the area in September. Monument Valley is now open but requiring a tour and there doesn't seem to be one official one, their website lists about 20 and it's not a great system (takes you to yahoo.com and then you need to search again -stupid system). I found several and they all have at least a few decent reviews (from this July) but the cheapest is $65 per person (plus "admission") and while they say they are taking "safety precautions" they are group tours. So I'm not sure it's worth it. I know you can see the "classic" shot on RT 163.
Has anyone done one of these tours recently and can recommend one and comment on it (especially how enclosed the jeep/vans are)?
Has anyone done both Monument Valley and Valley of the Gods and can comment on if Valley of the Gods is "almost" as good? I know it is supposedly a smaller version of Monument Valley. Sometimes things are famous just because they are well know and sometimes because they really are that great. Wondering which is the case for Monument Valley vs Valley of the Gods.
