We toured Upper Antelope Canyon several years ago and really enjoyed it - even when the guide's vehicle got stuck in the sand. We wanted to tour the Lower Canyon as well, but it was the middle of monsoon, and the canyon had flooded the night before we got there - always a risk, especially at this time of year. The difference in the two canyon sections is that the Upper Canyon is a relatively wide walk-in, while the Lower Canyon is a narrower climb-in via a series of steps/ladders.
This time, we made a point of returning, and managed to arrive when the Lower Canyon was dry. Our guide from Ken's was Victor. His commentary was interesting and he took care to assure that everyone had a good time. He was excellent at pointing out the various features, rock patterns and colorations, and at explaining them. Antelope Canyon is a beautiful place, and we diddn't miss a thing.
What made his tour particularly good was his ability to not only point out the best photo ops, but to assist with tips for getting the best pictures. He seemed to be familiar with every camera in the group, and even casually clicked off shots that the tourists struggled with.
Another special touch came from the guide whose tour was immediately behind ours. He played a Navajo flute at several points. The music was beautiful, and it was enhanced by the canyon's acoustics.
The ladder/stairs may be a problem for some, but my wife had no problems despite her dual knee replacements. The climb out at the end of the tour, and the 1/4-mile walk back to the parking area are a good aerobic and cardio workout, so either come fit, or go slowly!
