Watch it illuminate the walls of the slot canyon in shifting yellow, orange, and violet hues, and learn to best capture the vivid scene on camera. 

Make a stop at the Cameron Trading Post, where Zuni, Hopi, and Navajo artists sell silver jewelry, pottery, and other artisan crafts. Stop at Glen Dam with a majestic view of Lake Powell on one side and a glimpse into the depths of Glen Dam Gorge on the other.

Antelope Canyon Day trip
Lissette_O, Nov 2022
Pros: Expert tour guide who does all the driving, personable, knowledgeable and open to questions. Water readily available. Beautiful view of Horseshoe Bend and landscape. Antelope Canyon is also very majestic. Tim, our Navajo guide, very knowledgeable & helpful with beautiful pictures. Activity level 2-3, gravel walkway to Horseshoe Bend, still need sturdy shoes to climb on rocks & uneven terrain. Cons: super long drive from Sedona (although broken up in two 90 mins drives - driver provided, super helpful) so you’ll spend bulk of your time in the van. Lunch is basic. Super nice service. Antelope Canyon groups are moved along swiftly. However, I Appreciate the guides because without them the public wouldn’t learn as much or respect the land as they should. Bonus, the guides are experts at photos. There wasn’t as much light in the canyon as I expected (disappointing) so definitely inquire what time of day is optimal light time. Overall great first visit to these natural treasures.
Breathtakingly Beautiful
Jean_M, Oct 2022
This was a trip I am so glad we took. The tour guide, Matt, was super informative. I learned more than I ever thought, but the gorgeous way the lights play in the canyon is beyond belief. When my daughter and I were planning our vacation the photos that were on the website drew us to sign up for this tour. YOU HAVE TO SEE THIS!! I got reminders on my phone and we really liked the idea that they were able to pick us up at the hotel we were staying at and return it. It was a long day, no doubt about that, but would do it again for sure. Matt gave us some restaurant suggestions and we went to Nic's in Cottonwood one night for an excellent meal.
Inexplicable beauty
Diane_T, Oct 2022
The antelope Canyon experience was great. I would definitely advise everyone to see it. It was beyond words. It is something to see with your own eyes. The tour is a bit difficult for seniors. You are a bit rushed at each event. More time is needed to eat and enjoy lunch.
Great Day in Page Arizona. Definitely Worth Committing A Long Day
Sean_B, Sep 2022
Amazing day with Kat and her tour from Sedona to Page! Short stops at Horseshoe Bend and Glen River Canyon, but long enough to take each site in. Horseshoe Bend requires a short, but easy, with lots of angles to take pictures without people popping up in them. Antelope Canyon was amazing. Our tour guide knew all of the best angles to take pictures from and offered to snap them for everybody. If you wear prescription sunglasses, make sure to bring your regular glasses with you. I missed some of the color effects with my sunglasses on. Be prepared for a long day. Kat picked us up in Sedona, at 6:30 am, and we got back at about 6 pm. Plenty of bathroom breaks though. Lunch at a family restaurant was provided, but nothing to write home about. Enough to be filling though.
Breathtaking beauty!
Marcie_R, Jun 2022
The canyon was just incredibly beautiful! Our tour guide Jeff was great. Very Knowledgeable, and happy to answer any questions we had for him. It was a long drive to and from the canyon, but a great site to see once we got there.

Long van ride but saw so much beautiful country. The best was checking off 2 places to visit from our bucket list WOW!!!!!! Horse Shoe Bend & Antelope Canyon
Moments filled with Awe!
Alison_M, May 2022
We met our oldest and dearest friends for this trip to Arizona and we were not disappointed. Sedona is beautiful with such magnificent beauty around. It was a wonderful tour. Steve was so knowledgeable about the history and the fun facts about the area. We all enjoyed it immensely!
Response from Host, May 2022
Thank you for the wonderful comments about your tour with Steve. He's a terrific guide and it shows. We hope you'll have an opportunity to visit us again.
Super amazing tour. Worth...
Stacie_S, May 2022
Super amazing tour. Worth the $$. Drive is long from Sedona, but worth it. Horseshoe bend and antelope canyon are both short walks.
Antelope canyon and horseshoe bend a must see
Bridget_S, Apr 2022
Our driver was very nice, funny, and knowledgeable. He asked several times if we were comfortable or needed water. Antelope canyon and horseshoe bend were beautiful (a must see). The drive from Sedona is long I’m glad we did not drive. My husband and I enjoyed the ride and were able to watch the mountains and landscape, and learn about the area and the local American Natives from our driver.
Amazing!!
Chi_V, Jan 2022
Great tour guides! Magical experience!! MUST DO!! Everyone visit Sedona/Flagstaff must do this tour.
Response from Host, Jan 2022
We totally agree...a must do! We're so glad to hear you enjoyed the trip and we hope to see you again!
Wonderful trip - Brad is the best!
Maulik_S, Dec 2021
We booked this trip to go to the Antelope Canyon. But we were delighted with everything else! Brad was full of great information that was helpful to understanding the history of the area. He made plenty of rest stops along the way, and thankfully did not give us too much time at the shops. Though, he was very accommodating to anyone who wanted to shop. This was not one of those tours that was about shopping, rather, it was about learning, experiencing the beauty and sightseeing. The lunch was very tasty and Brad had a lot of water on board to help us all hydrate. Now to the beauty of the trip: It is everything you want it to be! Brad knows all the best places to stop and take the best photos. If you ask him about something, he will make sure he covers it or gets to it. I cannot be more thankful to him for one of the most magical days! It is a long day, so, be comfortable. If traveling in winter (which we did) make sure you take layers. It is a long day, but so very worth it!!
Response from Host, Dec 2021
What wonderful comments! We're so glad you enjoyed your Antelope Canyon trip with Brad. It's our pleasure to provide this type of memorable experience and we hope we'll see you again soon.
I wish everyone could have this experience.
LynDee_K, Nov 2021
The entire day was amazing. I can’t think of a better guide than JR Ralston and I have traveled all over the world. He is a wealth of knowledge from Sedona to northern Arizona. He will give you as much information as you like. We heard about Hollywood actors who he has known since he was a boy to his relationships with different Native American tribes to his vast knowledge about geology. The sites were beyond beautiful and a must see. Words are hard to describe the awe we felt. I’m grateful to JR for giving us his valuable time, the Navajo Nation for allowing us to visit their land and for being able to experience these gorgeous natural wonders.
Breathtaking pictures
Lynda_Y, Sep 2021
Although it was a long ride from Sedona, it was completely worth it. The tour guide and the Navajo guide were both very personable and knowledgeable. The scenery on the way and at Horseshoe bend was beautiful but the real gem is Antelope Canyon. It is breathtaking and provides wonderful photos. It is amazing to see and was just a leisurely walk through the canyon.
A Fabulous Way to Spend a Day
Deborah_H, Oct 2021
The trip to Horseshoe Bend and Antelope Canyon was a major highlight to our week in Sedona. Our guide, Steve, was wonderful- knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, and kind. He offered to take pictures of tour members so that you have better results. There is no suggestion I can make about ways to improve If I ever return to Sedona I would take this tour again.

Amazingly beautiful...
Emaliya_S, Sep 2021
Amazingly beautiful canyon. Guides provided very interesting information. Travel from Sedona takes a bit under 3 hours in each direction but it worth every effort and every penny.
Excellent guides!
sharon_s, Sep 2021
We were able to see more than I expected to see. Good trip. The guides answered all questions. Also be sure and take a hat and drink lots of water, it was hot
Our family vacation was amazing!!
victoria_g, Sep 2021
The guides are exceptionally amazing, Cat and Leland. The sites absolutely beautiful. We would book again next time we're on vacation in Sedona.
Long but fantastic day of sightseeing.
Peter_S, Aug 2021
We caught a good day (not too hot and particularly overcast). Our tour guides were both excellent. The sightseeing at the two locations were very good. The only negative is the long drive from Sedona/Flagstaff to Page. Be prepared for 6-7 hours in a van and roads that were occasionally pretty rough. Plenty of stops were available for shopping and bathroom and the included lunch stop was good. Be sure to have decent walking shoes and a good camera. Guides provided lots of water. You can grab breakfast at the first stop if you need to.
Antelope Canyon was the best
Shaun_S, Feb 2020
Horseshoe Bend and Antelope Canyon are definitely places to see on your visit in Sedona. The view at Horseshoe Bend was phenomenal. The beauty was unbelievable. Antelope canyon is also a must see. Leland, our guide at Antelope Canyon, was both professional as well as helpful. He had an exceptional knowledge of the canyon. Leland knew exactly where and how to get the best pictures. I strongly recommend visiting Antelope Canyon, especially during the midday hours of 12-2. Those hours provide the best lighting for awesome pictures.. Our guide from Arizona Tours, Burton (Burt) also was very knowledgeable in the city of Sedona. Although the drive was long, he provided entertainment throughout..
