Beautiful experience touring Upper Antelope Canyon. Our group was small which was nice but the others seemed more interested in selfies and glam shots so we had a more personal experience listening to our guide one negative…We we’re told by the Check in representative, Marvin no bags of any kind were allowed so we scrambled to figure our best way to carry water and personal items. Once on the tour we saw many others with bags and were told any bags would have been fine.

This is a “must see”! You may have seen pictures of Antelope Canyon on your computer screen saver - but the actual formations are even more spectacular. The walk is a loop - canyon is about 100 yards in length, you are walking in sand but the walking is easy. Your return to the vehicles is an uphill climb on a metal walkway, then across the desert, followed by metal stairs leading back to the vehicle.

Our guide Rick was superb in every sense of the word. Rick went above and beyond to make our experience a memorable one. He helped us with photos, sang songs in his native language and shared some of his culture with us. The experience was magical, many thanks to the Navajo people for sharing Antelope Canyon with the public.

Great guide. Very knowledgeable and personable. Offered to take many family photos as well as pointing out phenomenal shots for us to snap

Our guide Tyrone was friendly and knowledgeable. He helped everyone take perfect photos and had great stories.
