We went with Twin Trails Scenic Tours and had a great time. We originally booked with Antelope House tours but they kept our $56 deposit and gave us to the other company who fulfilled their commitment. I requested a refund but was told it went to the other company and when I called to double check was told it was... More

We took both the four hour private jeep trip and then spent the rest of the day doing the Rim drive. The South Rim is particularly interesting.

This is a beautiful part of Canyon de Chelles. The sheer walls are significantly higher than in other parts that we traveled through. There is also a lot of history of this part of the canyon.

We visited this canyon with our Navajo guide, Leander Staley. I can't even begin to describe how wonderful this journey was but it's something everyone should do. There are numerous ruins and pictographs to see, including Antelope House. Wow!

I loved the stories about the canyon, and how it got it's name. We were below in the canyon, looking up at the ruins. Standing in working farms

Beautiful scenery like the rest of it. Love the natural viewpoints, without metal railings everywhere (but be careful if you are afraid of heights!) Hard to imagine the cruelty on those cliffs.

We toured Canyon del Muerto in order to see Spider Rock. Oscar Bia's Ancient Canyon Tours took us there on a 4 hour tour. A must to see if you are touring Canyon de Chelly.
