“One of the Most Beautiful Spiritual Places on Earth...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

Antelope Canyon is one of the most beautiful places to see on the earth. The Navajo Indians did a great job keeping this slot canyon well taken care of and protected. The tours are amazing. I would say the tours offered by Roger and Carolene Ekis is my favorite, they even offer a photography tour showing you how to get a good shot with your camera with recommended settings. Antelope Canyon is amazing slot canyon made of beautiful sandstone carved into beautiful natural sculptures that change as the sun moves through the sky, so nothing you see is the same...and changes within minutes...it is mother natures finest art. I recommend to google images as the pictures in this case do speak more then a thousand words about this place. I love this place and will return at different times of the year to see the different views as the sun sets different in the sky...the tours range from $28 to $50, depending on type of tour and time of day.

If you want to see is mandatory to take an organized tour. You cannot visit by yourself, only guided. To have beautiful photos it is recommended to take a tripod for your camera and to book a trip for 11.00 or 13.00 hour, when the light is ok in the canion.

“Simply breathtaking!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

The definite highlight of my entire tour of the US Western parks system. This tour of the lower canyon is strictly with a guide and the fee for adults was $20 ($12 for children ages 7-12) plus $6 for the Navajo permit and you must sign a release waiver. At the beginning of the lower canyon tour and before you head into the actual canyon, there is a stone monument for the eleven people killed in 1997 in the canyon from flash floods.

It is simply impossible for me to explain the amazing designs, curves, colors and textures of the canyon walls. Each and every turn in the canyon was simply stunning. A truely unique and one of a kind experience. Be advised this tour is a bit strenious with some steep stairs up and down and some very tight curves. We took so many pictures and our guide happily took photos for about everyone in the group. We had more than an hour for the tour, which for the most part was enough time. FYI: for those with a tri-pod there is an additional photographers fee and they allow you much more time to take the stunning pictures. There are port-a-potties in the large gravel parking lot for customers, but not much else for infrastructure.

Note: We opted for the lower canyon as to the upper as it was more expensive ($25 off peak, $40 peak for the premium1:00pm tour). This premium they charged for the light ray coming through the upper canyon, but it was my understanding that at the time of the year we visited the lighting was not good to see the ray of light at the upper canyon, but regardless, they still charged the higher fee plus premium.

In recap, this lower canyon tour is an absolute must see and do in your western US national parks tour more so than any other park or monument. It was the #1 highlight of my three week tour of the parks! Do not miss this.

“No Flash”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

It is truly a magical place, no wonder it is considered Sacred ....when taking pictures in the canyon be patient, use manual settings whenever possible and don;t use your flash.....Flash washes out the awesome colors tat exist. The ride up the Sand Wash in the back of a big truck was fun and our guides were wonderful. An experience you shouldn't miss when you're at Lake Powell!
