Up close on horseback in Monument Valley
Alba_W, Nov 2022
Going inside the valley to see the monuments up close on a horse and with a Navajo guide felt very authentic. I never rode horses so for me 2 hours was a bit long on my beautiful horse but others in the group were used to it and even trotting was enjoyable for them. They offer 1 hour tour which I would take next time.
Brilliant tour by horseback

Fantastic ride felt like you were in a western, well behaved horses took you on a gently trip around monument valley. Can’t recommended enough
Great western vibe!

Me and my wife figured that, on a trip to Monument Valley, you simply have to do horseback. We're happy we booked a tour with Sacred for two hours as time just flew by! We took plenty of great photos on our relaxing but breathtaking journey. The guide was great and they seem to be treating the horses good as well.
Amazing ride!

Brilliant gentle ride (because that is what we requested) through the most amazing scenery! A friendly guide who was very informative.
An incredible experience. Don’t miss it when staying in Monument Valley
Matthew_P, Jul 2022
We have travelled right across the USA and I can honestly say this was the best experience ever. If you visit Monument Valley, don’t leave without doing this tour. For cowboy lovers and aficionados of Western films. This is an absolute must. Even for novice horse riders, this is an incredible day. Thank you so much for making our day so memorable.
Großartiges Erlebnis aber kein guter Anbieter
Irina_T, Jun 2022
Das Erlebnis an sich war großartig und wir würden auch jedem empfehlen, eine solche Tour durchs Monument Valley zu buchen. Allerdings ist unsere Tour über eine Stunde später als vereinbart gestartet - ohne jegliche Entschuldigung oder Information vom Anbieter. Da wir wie gewünscht 30 Minuten vorher am Treffpunkt waren, haben wir fast 2 Stunden unserer Zeit verschwendet. Der Ausritt dauerte dann auch nur 1,5 statt der gebuchten 2 Stunden, was aber für unsere Hinterteile völlig ausreichend war ;) und somit von uns auch nicht bemängelt wurde. Dennoch haben wir den Anbieter als eher unzuverlässig und wenig bemüht empfunden. Erklärt und erzählt wurde uns während der Tour auch sehr wenig. Der Tourguide schien noch im Halbschlaf zu sein. Wir würden bei diesem Anbieter nicht wieder buchen.
A faire

Réservation sans souci. Balade très sympa même si 2h ça peut être un peu long si vous êtes débutants comme nous. Ayant fait le trail la veille, l’effet de surprise était forcément moindre.
Sortie incontournable à faire absolument
