Following hotel pickup in Flagstaff, the excursion to Antelope Canyon takes you past ancient volcanoes and the aptly named rock formations of the Painted Desert.

On arrival, walk with your guide along twists and turns and marvel at Mother Nature’s artistry as the sunlight descends into Antelope Canyon. Belonging to the Navajo Nation, the gorgeous slot canyon features sandstone cliffs that display dramatic shafts of light and shifting colors — from sherbet orange to violet —  throughout the day.

Additional highlights on your narrated tour include a stop at the Cameron Trading Post. Browse for pottery, jewelry, and award-winning crafts on display by Navajo, Zuni, and Hopi artisans.

A boxed lunch is served at Glen Dam overlooking Lake Powell. Get a glimpse of Glen Dam Gorge on the other side. Then hike up to Horseshoe Bend for a look at the Colorado River from above, before making the trip back to your hotel.

Wonderful experience! Go!!!

Kristin, our guide was very knowledgeable. Our tour to Horse Shoe Bend and Antelope Canyon was amazing! Our guide, Gabriel at Antelope Canyon made it a great experience! The beauty is indescribable! Highly recommend!
WOW for Antelope Canyon!

Our tour guide was Nate from the Navajo Nation. He was without a doubt the BEST! He described everything in detail, made sure that we could visualize what he was talking about, and even helped us take phenomenal pictures. This trip is outstanding and worth every penny.
not worth it

I would not recommend this trip. On the whole it was not a pleasant experience. It was a long, hot day - many hours of driving in an inadequately air-conditioned van. There has to be a better way to see Antelope Canyon (though you can't just do it alone - you need a Navajo guide). and the other stops (Horseshoe Bend, Glen Canyon, and Cameron Trading Post) you can easily do on your own, in the comfort of your own car. The driver/'guide' added nothing to the experience. Also, the Viator page for this trip shows a long list of covid precautions supposedly being followed by this tour operator. Not true. Almost no one else was even wearing a mask (except at Antelope Canyon where it was required by the reservation) - and that included the driver. (I certainly didn't feel it was my place to be the bad guy and attempt to have the tour company's supposed policy enforced.) Antelope Canyon is definitely worth seeing, and our Navajo guide was very good, which is why I'm giving the tour 2 instead of 1.

We ended up going to The Grand Canyon with Brad. Loved Brad and his extensive knowledge on everything in the area. My husband and I liked the tour and Brad so much, we can’t wait to visit again!! We will do Antelope Canyon next time as things improve. Thanks for suggesting the alternative experience. It was great!!!
Absolutely AMAZING tour!!!!

We picked this particular tour because they picked you up at your Flagstaff hotel and had positive reviews with great photos. I am SO GLAD we picked this tour company and SO GLAD we were lucky enough to have Chris as our tour guide. Chris picked us up at the hotel lobby, got us signed in, gave us bottles of water and began the tour. He was well-spoken, well-traveled, very knowledgeable, very entertaining and obviously enjoys his job! He kept us all informed and entertained. The Horseshoe Bend portion was really cool. The walk in is about 2/3 miles and is mostly downhill. My 76 year old Mom had a little trouble with the walk out as it is a slow, upward walk. She did fine overall The jewel of this tour is Antelope Canyon. It exceeded our expectations in every way!! Since it is located on Navajo land, you must be escorted by a certified Navajo guide. Chris was well informed about the process, got us to the Navajo Tour office with time to spare, and got us registered and on the first tour van for the afternoon, a big plus so you can be in the first group entering the canyon. We were lucky enough to have Nate as our Navajo guide. He actually helped us program our iPhones to the correct settings to maximize photo quality in the canyon. He took mine and others’ and adjusted the settings. He escorted us into the canyon and we immediately began taking photos. Nate would tell us where to stand for the best photos, would actually take photos of us, and helped us take photos by ourselves. He ushered us through the canyon pointing out the unique characteristics of the canyon and how it formed. He was absolutely fantastic!!! We got amazing photos. This place is like no where on Earth!!! And believe it or not, the photos don’t really do it justice!! After the canyon tour, Chris took us to get souvenirs and drove us back to Flagstaff, continuing tour talk the whole way! We loved it!! He covered history, geography and geology of the whole area!!! Fascinating!!! Chris also made recommendations for dinner. We ate at Black Bart’s and it was phenomenal!! I can not recommend this tour company (Arizona Tour Travel) and this tour guide(Chris) enough!! What a fantastic day!!!
Awesome day trip!

Tim was an awesome tour guide, very friendly, personable, and knowledgeable about the area. It's nice that there are plenty of stops on the way so you're never stuck on the bus for too long. I highly recommend this tour and would gladly go on another tour with Tim myself!
