Lake Powell Navajo Tribal Park And Antelope CanyonCurrently 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.

Our tour guide was very informative of the area and the history in the area. I really enjoyed the lower canyon due to going threw tight spot and and having to climb in a few spot. There are definitely quite a few stairs and dip down but an easy little hike and the view is something like you will never see anywhere else in the world.
This is the more established companies out of the two Lower Antelope Canyon Tours available. Our reserved time was pushed behind by over an hour and the sun was setting as we walked through the slot, making the experience less desirable than expected. I suggest booking a reservation no later than 2:30/3:00pm if this delay is a constant issue, as the following tour after ours was cancelled because it was too dark.... The tour guide was friendly and helped take nice photos, and the canyon is a must see if your in the area.... in the day light.
Great experience!! Really beautiful canyon with the light from above gives beautiful colors to the walls. We had a really nice guild telling a lot about the canyon and showed us how we could take nice picture with our phones/camera's. The whole tour took about one and a half hour and was well organized.
Really really good place. It’s depends on tour guide, but my guide supported to take great pictures!! His skill is amazing!!
Great tour. Our guide taught us many camera tricks to take amazing photos. He told us many interesting facts about the canyon. It did feel crowded at times but I guess that's just how it is. We went on a pretty cloudy day where it snowed earlier in the morning. We didn't see any light beams but it was still really beautiful. It's neat how it looks like nothing from the top.
