About Roy Black's Guided Tours, LLC.

Roy Black’s Guided Tours provides exciting and fun horse and vehicle tours deep in the Monument Valley backcountry. We also provide overnight lodging as well! Unlike most tours in the area, you will even have access to restricted areas with amazing arches, high mesas, ancient dwellings and petroglyphs.

Roy Black built this company so you can experience the wonders of Monument Valley and the often overlooked Mystery Valley. During our horse and vehicle tours, you will go back in time and learn stories of the Anasazi and the Navajo people that called the land home. And during our overnight stay in our traditional hogan lodge, you can experience the Navajo culture firsthand!

A TripAdvisor Top 10 Activity in Monument Valley

horseback riding monument valley Fantastic Experience

Absolutely amazing experience! The guide was helpful, and after checking our booking he asked how experienced we were. I am an experienced rider, and was given an appropriate horse. My boyfriend isn’t a rider and was given a very safe and steady horse which was perfect! The guide was helpful and explained everything about the area we rode, the guide even took a fabulous photos of us!

horseback riding monument valley Amazing place, amazing guide

This was the highlight of our 7 day Western Adventure. We rode for 2.5hours with Roy Black's nephew. He was unbelievable. Not only did we love the horses and landscape but he taught us all about Navajo wedding traditions, sweat huts, customs and showed us the most popular "wedding proposal location" and sang us beautiful songs. Incredible.

monument valley tours Lifetime experience!

My family booked a horse riding tour with Roy Black and we had a wonderful time. Our guide Elliot, a native Navajo who was born and raised in Monument Valley, took us to places which we would have never seen without him and gave us some insights about the Navajo culture and history. This tour was definitely one of the highlights of our US trip.

monument valley guided tours Highlight of the trip

The horse riding was great. Monument Valley is spectacular and riding on a horse is the best way to explore it. The guide told us about the landscape we were going through, about Navajo culture and he answered all our questions. Overall, the highlight of my stay in Monument Valley. I'll do it again with them if I will ever come back.

monument valley tours Best way to see the valley

We had a great time on our horseback tour of Monument Valley. Two hours was perfect time to see everything we wanted and our guide gave us a great history of the area, showing us all the different rock formations, etc. This is perfect for beginners and intermediate riders and the horses were lovely and relaxed.

horseback riding monument valley Unforgettable experience!

We had the most amazing trail ride. It was a relaxing private tour at sunset and it was such an incredible way to experience Monument Valley without any crowds. He taught us to gallop for the first time, and we couldn't stop smiling the entire tour. Hands down the best horse riding experience we have ever had! Absolute magic!

This was the perfect way to experience Monument Valley! It was so fun, and Billy our guide was very knowledgeable about the different monuments and helping with the horses. It was great to learn firsthand about his culture. Would definitely recommend for beginners and experienced horse riders alike! There are plenty of stops for wonderful picture opportunities!

monument valley guided tours Sunset horseback ride

We did a sunset horse back ride that was incredible. Our guide was so accommodating to our riding level it didn't even feel like we had a guide, more just a good friend taking us out on a ride. We learned so much about the land and had an absolute blast. Cannot say enough great things about the ride, truly a once in life time experience.
