Reviewed 1 March 2012

My husband and i did the photo tour with OVERLAND CANYON TOURS.We could not fault them from booking on line to the the end of the tour they were friendly and helpful.Our tour guide was ROB, With out him we would never have got he photos that we did and we are not fancy photographers only happy snappers.We were not rushed at all and he really made an effort to ensure we got our photos also making sure we did not disturb other peoples phots,IT IS A SLOT CANYON, SPACE IS AT A PREMIUM !ROB and another guide played their flutes in the canyon and that was another highlight We loved our tour.

“Sand rock canyon”
Reviewed 1 March 2012

Antelope Canyon is a narrow opening in the mountain that opens nice views of the colored sandstone.
Best seen by organized tour taken from Page.
The parking is far away from the Canyon and you cannot approach it in your own 4*4.

“MUST SEE ATTRACTION!”
Reviewed 25 February 2012

I really wanted to visit this place and take a nice pictures as I know the professional pictures from the books. I was worried about the crowds and timepreasure during the organized tour. As I understand there is no option to visit the canyon w/o organized tours.

Yes, it is not the most relaxing and romatic place on the earth. During the best-for-photographers-time (11am-2pm) is the canyon really crowded and you have just one hour for taking pictures. But when you expect that and are prepared for it, you can still enjoy it and take perfect pictures.

Don't forget to take a tripod with you. W/o tripod you can't take a good pictures here. Tripod also helped me to keep the crowds behind me during exposure.

The tour guides were very helpful and the cooperation between the group was also fine.

“You Must Go Here!”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

We did the Lower Antelope Canyon. It is your first left after the sign that says Upper Antelope Canyon. We didn't do upper but I heard it is really beautiful too, ($31 per person) if you pull into that parking lot they try to talk you into doing their tour as they are ran by two different companies. (Indian Reservation) Theirs is above ground.
The Lower Canyon you go down on cemented in very stable ladders. I am very claustrophobic and this did not bother me a bit. It is very open with the sky coming through above.
It is expensive. $26 per person. Only cash or travelers checks, so stop and get cash at an ATM before you go. Take a good camera, go when the sun light is good, 11:00 or 12:00 was amazing!
If you ask for a photographer pass, they let you go in alone to photograph, they give you two hours. We went on a regular tour but they usually let you go out on your own once your in the canyon. It can take only 30 minutes or an hour or two depending on how long you want to spend taking pictures or just enjoying the scenery.
It is so Beautiful!!

“Great pics”
Reviewed 17 February 2012

We made an overnight stop into Page just to see Antelope Canyon. We were about to book a guided tour but read some of the other views on here so we decided not to. We just showed up to the Canyon and paid $20 plus the $6 for the general fee and were given a pass to just walk in to the canyon. Great views though there wasn't much fun that day.
