Bryce>Page>South Rim in mid-October. Overnight in Page?

It looks like 4+ hours from Page to GC Village. Is that a reasonable estimate? We'll be taking a slot canyon tour in Page, and discussion here indicates that driving after dark in some of the areas can be dodgy, given wildlife on the roads.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

That's a good number but it doesn't calculate the time you'll use at the around stops between Desert View and GCNP. These are some of the top view points and the reason you're going to the Grand Canyon. Add 1-3 hours.

Good advice from RedRox. It always takes longer to get around the desert southwest than you expect, just due to stopping and admiring the views...unless you can somehow drive with blinders on.

Is your plan to drive from Bryce Canyon to the Grand Canyon with a stop in Page for the slot canyon tour, all in a day? That's a bit much, IMO. I would definitely add an overnight stop in Page if you can fit it into the schedule. There is a lot to see and do around Page in addition to Antelope Canyon: Lake Powell, Glen Canyon Dam, Horseshoe Bend, Rainbow Bridge, float trip down the Colorado, etc).

Overnight in Page to get an early start in the canyon. Then move on to GC. You'll want to see sunrises and sunsets at GC. Be sure to have reservations in the park.
