Tseyi Jeep Tours by Bobby Vanwinkle
The term tseyi (pronouned sayYEE) in Navajo refers to an opening in the rock or a canyon. The Hispanic explorers pronounced it as shay with a Spanish spelling of chelly. When they arrived, people had already been living in the Canyon for hundreds of years. As the latest occupants of the Canyon, the Navajo or Diné are working to carry on the tradition of caring for the land and the legacy that has been passed down to them. As part of the legacy, Bobby Vanwinkle is glad to share with you the Canyon where he was born.
Arranging Your Canyon de Chelly Tour
Canyon de Chelly tours are available by reservation. You can use the Contact Us page or the links on this page to arrange a tour. Payment can be made with cash or major credit card with prior notice. We will meet you at the Canyon de Chelly Visitor Center. Tseyi Jeep Tours are available for both large and small parties, and we offer non-traditional tour options. See the Tours page for more information. Give us a call to plan a more specialized tour than those available on the website or just to get acquainted before you book the tour of your choice. We use open top and enclosed Jeep and Suburban vehicles that are carefully maintained for dependability in the sandy and sometimes wet environment of the Canyon.
Already at the Canyon and don’t have a tour reservation? Give Bobby a call at 928-313-4052 anyway. He can usually work with your schedule and give you a view of the Canyon that can’t be seen in any other way.
