Following hotel pickup in Flagstaff, the excursion to Antelope Canyon takes you past ancient volcanoes and the aptly named rock formations of the Painted Desert.

On arrival, walk with your guide along twists and turns and marvel at Mother Nature’s artistry as the sunlight descends into Antelope Canyon. Belonging to the Navajo Nation, the gorgeous slot canyon features sandstone cliffs that display dramatic shafts of light and shifting colors — from sherbet orange to violet —  throughout the day.

Additional highlights on your narrated tour include a stop at the Cameron Trading Post. Browse for pottery, jewelry, and award-winning crafts on display by Navajo, Zuni, and Hopi artisans.

A boxed lunch is served at Glen Dam overlooking Lake Powell. Get a glimpse of Glen Dam Gorge on the other side. Then hike up to Horseshoe Bend for a look at the Colorado River from above, before making the trip back to your hotel.

Wayne was our tour guide and exceeded our expectations. He made the long ride fun and knew everything about the scenery, mountains, Navajo land, wildlife, etc. we also got a good amount of time at each destination.

A work of art in nature

The visit to the Antelope X was incredible - however, there were a few things that kept the entire experience from a 5 star review. First, we reserved a tour for Upper Antelope Canyon, and discovered the day before the tour that we had been switched to Antelope X (was told it was because Upper Antelope was an extremely popular tour - which is why we booked it months ahead...) When I expressed disappointment that we were not getting what we originally booked and paid for, the woman from the tour company said that I could cancel and they would refund our money. Seeing that members of our family were arriving from San Francisco and Seattle for this tour, that really was not a good option. We were a group of 5, and when picked up in Flagstaff the only seats available in the van were in the back as 6 people were already onboard starting in Sedona. The van suspension was horrible, and we were bounced around to the point that the seatbelt was still not enough support to keep us from being lifted completely off the seat. Now for the good/great part of the trip. Our Navajo guide once we arrived at Antelope X was incredible!! Her name was Arlinda, and not only was she so knowledgeable and informative, but she had a great personality and was a joy to be around. She helped us in getting great photos with instructions for our phones. The canyon itself was a work of art that nature provided. We will book another trip to the slot canyons with another company - and this next time will hopefully make it to Upper Antelope Canyon which is what we wanted in the first place. The stars awarded to this review were completely for Arlinda, our Navajo guide, and the beauty of the slot canyon.

Unbeatable Tour!

We took the 10 hour tour to Antelope Canyon and had Ed as our tour guide. It was a 2 hour drive to the canyon that Ed filled with interesting information about what we were seeing as we drove as well as explanations about the different Indian cultures. He was a wealth of information and made the 2 hours fly by.

Our tour guide was Nate from the Navajo Nation. He was without a doubt the BEST! He described everything in detail, made sure that we could visualize what he was talking about, and even helped us take phenomenal pictures. This trip is outstanding and worth every penny.

not worth it

I would not recommend this trip. On the whole it was not a pleasant experience. It was a long, hot day - many hours of driving in an inadequately air-conditioned van. There has to be a better way to see Antelope Canyon (though you can't just do it alone - you need a Navajo guide). and the other stops (Horseshoe Bend, Glen Canyon, and Cameron Trading Post) you can easily do on your own, in the comfort of your own car. The driver/'guide' added nothing to the experience. Also, the Viator page for this trip shows a long list of covid precautions supposedly being followed by this tour operator. Not true. Almost no one else was even wearing a mask (except at Antelope Canyon where it was required by the reservation) - and that included the driver. (I certainly didn't feel it was my place to be the bad guy and attempt to have the tour company's supposed policy enforced.) Antelope Canyon is definitely worth seeing, and our Navajo guide was very good, which is why I'm giving the tour 2 instead of 1.
