Well worth it
Javonne_O, Mar 2024
It was a great experience! The views were amazing. The walk wasn’t bad at all. Our captured some great photos for us and of us to creat lasting memories. Tips for others: wear a hat, wear a hoodie or something with a hood to protect you from the sand fall ( especially a poc you will want to wear something to keep the sand out your hair).
Unforgettable Day Trip
Erica_V, Mar 2024
Well worth it! Our tour guide Shannon was awesome. We saw so much in one day. The van was comfortable and there were enough stops during the day to break it up. Highly recommend this tour! I'm still in awe of the hospitality from Detours West and the sights that we saw.
Amazing trip

What an experience
Kieona_J, Aug 2022
The service provider was awesome hands down. The tour guide derrick was very knowledgeable, friendly, and fun. Even when we got to Antelope canyon that tour guide was fun, friendly and knowledgeable. It was a breathe-taking experience that I would personally tell anyone to go see. I mean pictures are one thing but to see it in person is another feeling. I enjoyed all of it through and through. Thank you detour Arizona. And Navajo tribe for allowing us to come on you all reserve land.

Canyons and overlooks
Breshna_S, Aug 2022
Loved this tour it was amazing . Really long day but the drive is amazing the sites are amazing and it’s totally worth it . The only thing I would say is don’t do this tour June July or August because it’s so hot in AZ .
Excellent tour and guide. Diane was amazing!
Catherine_E, Jun 2022
The guide was informative and entertaining. Highly recommend this tour. Every natural wonder was amazing. The small little restaurant we stopped and had lunch at was delicious.
Great sites, not so great ride
Shalonda_H, May 2022
The tour guide Jonnette was wonderful. She provided a lot of history. The tour bus driver, Aldo, bullied passengers into giving tips. I always tip, but observed him follow a passenger to his car and confronted him. He was very abrasive and the ride back was horrifying. He drove too fast and didn't have control of the van, mocked other drivers on the road. While he may not represent all Detour drivers, I'm hesitant to ride with Detour again. Again, my tour guide was wonderful. The canyons were beautiful.
Response from Host, May 2022
Thank you for coming out to Antelope Canyon with us. Our drivers often have to contend with major wind storms on the route between Phoenix and Page, approximately 280 miles, one way. If you have any specific feedback about our tour guide's communications with other guests, besides parts of an overheard conversation, I look forward to learning how we can improve the tour experience, and the performance of our guide team.

Great tour with long drive service
Mitsunori_S, May 2022
It was a long tour. As I stayed in Phenix and would like to avoid long driving, it was a convenient tour to visit the beautiful Antelope.
AMAZED by the Scenery on this Tour
Gina_O, Apr 2022
Jennifer was great during the travel, she is a great driver and very informative when it came to the areas we were passing by. Horseshoe area could it have been an hour instead of 45 mts as it felt with the heat at the same time, time went quick. I walk fast but it another 15 mts would make a big difference. Horseshoe stop was awesome. Regarding the Canyon Antolope, OMG is a must, the area is stunning but can get crowed, if you driving straight there, get there early. If you ever in UTAH or anywhere around this section the trip is shorter. This is located in the town of Page. I was picked up from Scottsdale which the trip was longer but worth it, i was prepared for it. Hopefully this information helps someone. I had a great experience on that day. :-)
Simply the BEST
Michelle_S, Apr 2022
The private Anrelope Canyon Day trip was worth the time and money. I must admit, I was a little nervous about the long trip from Phoenix to Page, AZ. Mark, our driver and guide made the trip so fun. We learned lots about the places we were driving though and general Arizona history and triva facts. Mark and the folks at Detours made sure we were taken care of every step of the way. I wholly recommend this trip and ask for Mark as your guide. We also learned that they do custom private tours and I am planning one in Utah. If you are on the fence about this tour, just do it!!
