“The land is considered sacred, you cannot enter Antelope Canyon without a native Navajo guide.”
Antelope Canyon is a slot canyon that includes two separate, scenic slot canyon sections, referred to individually as "Upper Antelope Canyon" and "Lower Antelope Canyon" or "The Corkscrew" Lower Antelope Canyon, is called Hazdistazí, or 'spiral rock arches' by the Navajo, is located several miles from Upper Antelope Canyon. Prior to the installation of metal stairways, visiting the canyon required climbing along pre-installed ladders in certain areas. There are two tour companies that run tours into Lower Antelope Canyon: Ken’s Tours and Dixie Ellis’ Tours. Both companies run tours every 30 minutes, with approximately 10 to 15 people per group. That is 30 people every 30 minutes and the canyon can fill up fast. Even if you reserve a 1 pm time slot, your tour group could end up waiting in line to enter the canyon, especially during the peak summer months.
These directions literally have you park on the side of the highway with nothing but a large private facility with smoke stacks and restricted entry to non-employees. Very disappointed in these directions and they should be updates and corrected :(
Must see. This place is so amazingly beautiful.
Been open since July. What an amazing tour and the guide was awesome. Showed us how to take the best photos on our smart phones. This has been the highlight of my cross country road trip!

One of the most stunning places in the U.S. It looks like you're walking right into a Mac Book screensaver. However, please note that this is Navajo land and you cannot go down into the canyons without a guide. Tours for Lower Antelope will cost you anywhere from $40-$65 and last about an hour. It's a little crowded year-round with people piled in to take pictures, but will probably be one of the most unique landscapes you've ever seen. Absolutely worth the trek if you're in the Grand Canyon. Pairs well with Horseshoe Bend, too.
Worth the money. Need to make a reservation online. Recommend going early to miss the crowds and it's not so hot. The driveway has some sandy areas making it a little difficult for cruiser motorcycles to ride through. Tennis shoes are a must. Maybe a bottle of water. When we went, they provided water which was really nice. Bring a camera for sure. Our tour guide helped us set our cameras to get great pics.
Some spots along the tour gets a little tight to walk through but not bad. Would diffidently go again.
This is a MUST if you are anywhere near there! You will never see anything like it, it is beautiful! I will definitely make a trip so see this again.
