It is hard to know what to expect when you sign up for a group tour. My family and I can honestly say that this was a worthwhile experience. Allen, our tour guide was enthusiastic and extremely knowledgeable. As an added bonus, he is a professional photographer and generously offered valuable tips as we photographed the breathtaking Canyon.
The tour was well organized and never did we feel like we were being shuttled around like cattle to one tourist trap after another.
From Tusayon it is about an hour out to Cameron, where the bus picks you up and about another 90 minutes to the Slot Canyon, but the time passes quickly as Allen points out many interesting sights of the Navajo Nation along the way.
We spent about an hour in the Slot Canyon (which is plenty of time to take 1000 pictures), then we were taken to a floating marina a served a decent box lunch. The Marina had a great shop and extremely clean facilities as well. Our family did not participate in the raft ride, but went on a 90 minute Lake Powell cruise, which was very pleasant. Our boat was shaded and comfortable. We had a different guide, who took us to Antelope Canyon and then to a beach where we could hike and swim for about 30 minutes. If you have really young children I highly recommend taking this option.
Overall, I highly recommend taking this tour. Request Allen if possible.
