    What a great trip! Anthony was an excellent driver/host. He communicated clearly, made scheduled stops for bathroom breaks/gas, and had phone chargers and cold water available. Horseshoe Bend is a self guided hike and amazingly our entire group returned at the designated meet time. We stopped for lunch at Subway prior to going to Antelope Canyon X. Once on the reservation, we met our guide for the canyon. It is a steep dusty hill (or stairs) down to the canyon entrance (and back up the hill) but the canyon is flat and easy walking which is good because you spend your time looking up in amazement!

This was a great tour! It’s a lot to see in one day so I’m glad we didn’t have to drive it ourselves. The Navajo guide in antelope canyon even helps you take amazing pictures! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the area. The only thing I kinda wish she could have done was guide us at the actual stops. They bring you to the stop and then you tour it on your own.

Wonderful experience! Our pilot (Becky?) was phenomenal and made the trip even more enjoyable with her professionalism, knowledge and sense of humor. Great views and unique perspective on the area. Would definitely recommend!

You won't regret taking this tour. Horseshoe Bend was beautiful to see, and walking through Antelope Canyon was an unreal experience. Janelle was a fantastic guide, as was Tony, who took us on our Antelope Canyon tour.

An early start but we’ll worth it. It was a long drive but the scenery was amazing. Our guide could not have been more helpful.

My tour guide Chloe was great and provided so much information.
