Antelope Canyon is stunning in its natural beauty. It was a bucket list destination for us and we are so glad we did this tour.
A great tour!

Dom, our driver and guide was totally entertaining! I was a bit worried about the long drive to Antelope Canyon but he was both educational and funny so time flew by. The canyon guide was also terrific and helped us get the best pictures. A great experience all around

Unbelievably beautiful

Amazing experience
Michaela_G, May 2023
Antelope canyon and horseshoe bend was an amazing experience. Our guide Andrea was very knowledgeable and organized. She gave us enough time at the stops and all over she was great.
Great thing to do if you like great views
Nastassia_J, May 2023
Wonderful experience. Tour guides were really good, food was good and the views were spectacular. The pictures I got look like they belong in a art gallery.
Awesome views
Edward_M, Jan 2023
Horse shoe bend and antelope canyon just great views and picture opportunities. Tour guides were very informative and willing to take group pictures
Supriya_S, Nov 2022
Mark- a very Bad tour guides lacking knowledge enthusiasm and humor. At the end of this tour, many of the tourists felt this was “cadaver like tour trip”. He is very disrespectul and followed exclusion policy to selected tourists. We r on a vacation and been later by few minutes is not the end of the world. He slammed us saying “ look at your phone clock/ watch “ . Trying to make free money while in retirement . Did not deliver his promise and did not show the dams at the base enroute after lunch as many tourists on the van requested for the same. Overall awful experience with this specific Guide on this tour! Beware of mark ! My kids did not gain any extra knowledge going with this tour guide. Families spend big bucks to obtain a delightful and knowledgeable experience and this tour did not provide it. I requested for refund for these reasons but they refused to pay back. I will not recommend using you monies here!
Response from Host, Nov 2022
IN the interest of clarity we would like to introduce some factual information, We have spoken with other guests on the tour whose positive reviews should be posted shortly. We provide public tours and our goal is to service all guests on the tour. We had previously received your direct complaint about how your child was not singled out for special attention which is a challenge to do...all guests pay the same rate and expect uniform service. We do offer a private tour for guests with singular attention expectations for this reason. The elements of the tour for which you were charged were provided which we addressed in your email which is why your reservation did not qualify for a refund. Having received our response, you are now seeking to malign our guide and our organization.
Awesome Tour
ron_P, Oct 2022
Antelope Canyon was like being in another world! Absolutely incredible beauty!! Have never seen anything like it. I had the awesome privilege of having Steve for this tour as well as the Grand Canyon. He is by far the best and most personable tour guide I have ever met. He absolutely loves what he does and you know it from the moment you step foot on his tour bus!
Fun way to see beautiful country.
Paula_K, Oct 2022
Great day combines 2 beautiful places to see with fun group. Comfortable drive with a very informative tour guide.
Awesome experience! We'll worth it!
leonaholzman, Oct 2022
Cat was our tour guide and picked us up at our hotel in Flagstaff right on time. She was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot about the area as we headed up to Page. The stops at Horseshoe Bay and Glen Canyon dam were great. I appreciated that she took us to see an additional view of Lake Powell. Great Vista! We stopped for lunch at Gone West in Page and visited with others in our tour group. It was nice that Cat had cold bottled water for us so we could stay hydrated. Tim was our guide for the Antelope Canyon. He was enthusiastic and gave us a fun experience driving thru the washed road. He gave us a good history about how the rock formations were created and educated us on the flash flooding that happens. He pointed out things inside the Canyon that we didn't see until he showed us. He was very patient with all if us taking pictures and we LOVED that he helped us capture the light by either helping us take pictures or taking them for us so we would get the most colorful photos. It was a tour well worth the price!
Great day
donna_f, Oct 2022

Great Tour
william_b, Oct 2022
The tour in the canyon lead by Tim was great. He helped show the best part of the canyon and light! The transportation was good.
Bucket List Must!
Chad_L, May 2022
This tour should be on everyone’s bucket list. Our tour guide Mario was very knowledgeable and that made the tour excellent. One of the most beautiful places we have toured to date.
Wonderful Experience
Aakanksha_M, Apr 2022
We had a really nice experience with Kath and later tash for the tour. Kath was kind, accomodating and sweet, she was really a good guide. Tash was the local Navaju tribal who took her to the Anyelopes. Antelopes were mesmerisingly beautiful and a must visit.
Perfect Family Experience
Jenny_K, Mar 2022
Our family- including four teens- were amazed by this trip. Our tour guide, Wayne, was knowledgeable and friendly. He let us know the plan for the day and keep us on track to see everything. Leticia, our Navajo guide in Antelope Canyon, told us stories and shared information about her culture. She also helped us get great photos as we wound our way though the slot canyon. This was an experience that will be remembered and should not be missed! It was also nice to travel in a small group. Take a day to do this tour if you can.
This was too much driving...
Ali_M, Mar 2022
This was too much driving for us. The majority of the time is spent in the car. Sad that this is the only way to see antelope canyon because it was so beautiful but you had to keep masks on the whole time and there were other people everywhere. We would have much rather explored on foot but our guide was very knowledgeable about geology and the land which was fun to hear about. Glad we got to see it but definitely won’t book again. The company did good job but the experience wasn’t what we were looking for.
Response from Host, Mar 2022
Thank you for your comments about your trip including the walking tour of Antelope Canyon and hike to Horseshoe Bend.. We're glad to hear you enjoyed the beauty of Antelope Canyon and the knowledgeable narration by your guide.. Arizona covers a large geographic area and many of the most beautiful destinations are a bit remote so they do require some driving. We believe that the stunning scenery is worth the drive and our guides help pass the time with their commentary about the scenery and Navajo culture. With respect to masks, we adhere to current requirements for the safety of our guests and guides. We appreciate your understanding in these unique times.
Solo trip!

Our Navajo guide would...
Sue_M, Feb 2022
Our Navajo guide would get a 12 out of 10. He went out of his way not only to give you all the information we desired, he took many pictures of all of us in the group. Each of us went home with amazing photos of ourselves in this fabulously beautiful place. It is nature at its best.
