“Antelope canyon!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

We were kept very busy enjoying the beauty of Antelpoe Canyon, enthralled by the information given by our wonderfull host, Leonard Nez. He made our trip up from Phoenix worth while. Perhaps we could be lucky enough to meet him again! I got a much better understaning of nature, and the poeple who protect our beautyfull land. Both the upper and lower Antelope Canyons are Worth the time. Our hats off to Leonard! Doug and Winnie P

“Never seen anything like it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013

We went to Lower Antelope Canyon as the reviews said there is better photography, less people (and the price is lower). I have dfinitely never seen anything like it. The form of the stones, the colors, and finally the amazing effect when you take pictures and the colors start to shine. The guide of Ken's Tours was very friendly and helpful in pointing out the best motives. The boat tour from Antelope point into the lakeside part of the canyon was also a very impressive experience.

“Amazing experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013

We visited Lower Antelope Canyon, which was absolutely amazing. Our guide, Tatanka, was wonderful. He was ever so patient with our photo-taking, answered all our questions and even volunteered to take many photos of us and showed us great spots for pictures. I loved Antelope Canyon because it is a place where you can actually touch and feel the canyon and engage with it, as you walk through the narrow slots. The colours are amazing and the light plays wonderful tricks on the rocks. Visiting Antelope Canyon was an experience I will never forget!

A few tips - you need to take a guided tour (tourists are not allowed to see the canyon on their own for safety reasons), but there is no need to make advance reservations - the tours run every half an hour and you just need to show up a little ahead of the time you want to take the tour. Also, the national park pass will not work here because it is an Indian reservation.

A tip from hearsay - the Upper canyon is supposed to be very commercial (I haven't been there, so I have no idea). The Lower canyon is not at all commercial or touristy - no souvenier shops, and it wasn't very crowded when we visited.

“Chief Tsosie's Tours of Antelope Canyon”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

I visited the Antelope Canyons via Chief Tsosie's tours. While waiting for the tour to start, I spoke to a woman who worked there, named Ver. She was rude and condescending when I asked her questions about the community based off of conversations I had with other Navajo community members. At one point she told me we call ourselves 'Diné' and we only use 'Navajo' around "you people". She seemed prejudiced against those who weren't Navajo or Native American. It later turned out that this woman was our tour guide. Once the tour started, she did a complete 180 and became very charming and friendly. However the previous interaction put a damper on the tour. The references to 'our forefathers' and 'us Americans' during the tour seemed pretentious in contrast. I would definitely not recommend going with this company.
