Lake Powell Navajo Tribal Park And Antelope Canyon - Review
Get a map of the park before you begin to explore. There are five major things to explore: the upper and lower Antelope Canyon, and the upper and lower east waterholes.
The Antelope canyon is what everyone comes to see, a narrow slot canyon carved through Navajo sandstone by millions of ears of water erosion. It's thought that once upon a time, herds of pronghorn galloped through the canyon, hence its name. We've known of it ever since we came in contact with the Navajo people, who held the canyon in mystic regard. There's something temple-like and surreal about it. Also pretty are the waterhole canyons, which are pretty and delicate looking red sandstone formations of a similar nature. They both have two parts, upper and lower, and can only be visited by guided tour, and only for 2 hours each.

There are only two companies for the lower antelope tours, kens and Dixie. Both are close by and offer similar service at more or less same price. I happened to use ken's tours twice in last 2 years and was fully satisfied. The tour is for 1.15 hours and includes, brief history of antelope caves, tricks to take good pics (depends on who is your tour guide). They have a nice waiting area and a small cafeteria for drinks and snacks.
We had a tour reserved and they were nice enough to move us up 30 minutes because they had some openings. The canyon was beyond belief. It speaks for itself. Our tour guide was Trey (sp?) and he made our tour simply amazing. He has a passion for photography and pointed out the most amazing ways to capture our adventure. Even set the proper settings on my friend’s camera! He was such an amazing person to have with us. All smiles and so helpful. When I took a picture of The Indian Chief, he helped me with the settings and angle, I got the best picture thanks to him. Highly recommend this place. I came all the way from Chicago and would never hesitate to come back.
The tour is amazing. The canyon is spectacular. If you are in the area and have a chance to go then do it. Check in was a bit of a process and we had a bit of an issue with definition of reservations vs non reservations. But it was worked out in the end. A woman who I believe was a manager stepped in and got us on the right track and apologized for the confusion. The tour guide was very friendly and very knowledgeable. He showed our group some of the animals hidden in the rocks we would not have seen otherwise. He answered all our questions and even took a few pics for everyone. Enjoyed the tour a lot. Planning on going back and will use Ken's tours again.
My advice is to book directly with Ken’s and do it well in advance. It’s cash only when you arrive, no payment up front when you make the reservation. We found Ken’s to be the best tour company and nicest facilities. Park your car and walk right into the lower canyon from their location. The lower canyon may be challenging for people with physical limitations. There is a fair amount of steep stair climbing and defending plus some very narrow passages with carefully placed foot work. We went at 10:30 and it was very sunny and hot inside the canyon by the time we got in there. I would recommend early morning, less light inside actually makes for better photos with more contrasting colors.
We loved our tour at Kens! Our guide Nelly was the best. She took tons of pictures of our family, and showed us where to get the best photos. We would highly recommend this tour for adults and kids alike. Be sure to wear closed toed shoes; it’s very dusty.
