Lake Powell Navajo Tribal Park And Antelope Canyon471 Votes Currently Closed
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.

Lake Powell Navajo Tribal Park And Antelope Canyon Reviews & Ratings
Great company and breathtaking tour. They are very organized. They'll send you emails to remind you and when we arrived everything was easy. Check in took 1 minute only and the tour was a once in a lifetime experience. The kids were amazed and big smiles were on their faces the whole time. Now let me tell you about our tour guide , Josh. He was very knowledgeable, accommodating and very kind. I'd ask for him by name the next time around when we do the upper Antelope Canyon tour as we did the lower one this time. Thank you so much, Josh and thanks Dixie Ellis tours . Wish you the best.
My Lower Antelope Canyon experience with Ken’s Tours was definitely awesome! Although we were delayed for about half an hour, it was well worth the wait! Also, the tour guides were just fantastic. They do an amazing job preserving and cleaning up the canyon in the event of flooding. I would definitely come back!
This is the best tour ever. The canyon is amazing and so was the tour guide. He had a great sense of humour and told us everything there is to know about the canyon. He also knew everything you need to know to take the best pictures with whatever camera you had I wish I remembered his name. Thanks for the amazing tour.
Absolutely AWESOME tour! Lower Antelope Canyon was beyond gorgeous! Our tour guide, Malachai, was really helpful, giving interesting facts about the history of the canyon and the tours that used to pass through it. She took our pictures at magnificent spots and she was really nice. I highly recommend this company. It's also just about the only tour company in the area (as far as I can tell) that has a nice air conditioned waiting area to wait and recover. My family and I all loved it!
Awesome. Truly awesome slot canyon tour. Our guide Brian provided a fun and informational tour. Plus he is a smart phone picture-taking wizard. He knows the exact settings to use for every type of phone and the best places and angles to take incredible pics. Though somewhat scary for a few in our group, the stairs were not that bad. Our 6-year old handled them easily. This tour is definitely worth the price and the drive.
