Explore the naturally-made, colorful labyrinthine pathways of one of the most popular slot canyons in the world: the Lower Antelope Canyon. Follow a local Navajo guide on a walking tour of this canyon, learning about these curious rock formations and the history of the land. Head straight into the twisting passageways of the canyon, marveling at its brilliant windswept patterns, its colorful towering walls, and winding corridors. Feel the grandeur and the tranquility of your naturally-made surroundings as your local Navajo guide goes into detail about these formations. Next, descend five flights of stairs down 35 meters and into the largest cavern on this tour. Look up to catch thin slices of the bright blue sky high above you. Walk back up eight different staircases, trying not to let your jaw drop too low as you see a kaleidoscope of bright colors swirl around you on the surrounding Navajo sandstone. Created by rain, wind, and erosion this sandstone has been shaped and colored into what you now see over years. Stop to snap incredible photos along your route. After all, it's not every day you're surrounded by such colorful, natural rock formations.

Antelope Canyon X: Admission Ticket and Guided Tour

2. Antelope Canyon X: Admission Ticket and Guided Tour

Get to know Canyon X in Antelope Canyon with a guide. Located southeast of Lower Antelope canyon by the gateway town of Page, Ari. This part of the canyon is chiseled out by millions of years' worth of flood erosion and impactful winds on its sandstone, enough to sculpt out the iconic "X" shape that aptly named the canyon. Canyon X is a relatively new scenic tour and the lesser-known cousin of Upper/Lower Antelope Canyon, which results in fewer visitors by comparison to the other two. Canyon X is a mixture of the characteristics of both the Upper and Lower canyon, with the Upper's feature of pillars of light and the Lower's steepness. Canyon X is also deeper than the other two and brings ample photo opportunities. It truly is a great vacation spot for photography as well.

My guides with Fun Group were Tomo and Yu. The pickup point at Bellagio was easy to find thanks to the company’s good communication. Driving was shared between our guides because it was a 17 hour day. They were both very safe drivers I was impressed. The van I was in had a high top and well temperature controlled. This tour is well worth it. The guides did preplanned pit stops at good intervals. It was so much easier on a tour as they know exactly where the best viewing and photo opportunities were. Tomo is a seasoned photographer, as I was touring alone he was able to take shots of myself with the landscape as well as the rest of the group. That itself was worth the tour cost. The three included sights are magnificent and it was not rushed to see each site. You visit Canyon X with a Navajo guide. Beautiful. Our group of ladies was also a fun group to tour with on sept 9. Highly recommend company and tour. Details were well planned - no hiccups. It’s a long day. Recommend Tomo too!

My wife & I had a wonderful time on our Sweet Tour to the Grand Canyon/Hoover Dam. Our guide (Konoa) & driver (Carlos) were outstanding! The trip was fun, informative, interesting, funny & so beautiful. It was our 1st trip to the Canyon & Hoover Dam. We were blown away. We both learned quite a bit too as Konoa was a fountain of interesting facts. A great time. Too, my wife left her hat on the bus and the company (Earl) personally delivered it to our hotel. Big thanks for that extra effort. And thanks to the receptionist (Lucille?). She also went above & beyond making sure my wife got her hat back. We would definitely use Sweet Tour Co again & would recommend them to our friends & family. Thanks for a wonderful time!!

I absolutely love the experience! The tour guide was great and very knowledgeable. The sights and experience itself was absolutely amazing. I would definitely recommend it to anybody and everybody
