We spent an amazing day with Kathryn who was the perfect guide. Her enthusiasm and love of this land was truly infectious. The tour started on time, with a picturesque drive through ever changing landscapes. Horseshoe Bend was breathtaking. We walked along the cliffs with each turn a new site to behold. Our final stop was to Antelope Slot Canyon where our Navajo guide Irwin took us through the canyon, telling us the story of its history and showing us the perfect positions to take award winning photos. All in all, this was a 5 Star excursion. Kathryn, thank you for a truly memorable day.
Antelope slot canyon was absolutely amazing. Our tour guide navajo indian, Irwin was awesome and funny. He helped each with how to use their cameras to get amazing shots. Need to be able to get up into high truck. Great Venture Tours provided the transportation and information about the local sites. Charlie was great. He new when to share info. and when to let us rest or enjoy the view during the drive.
Our tour guide Lynn was great. She gave us some of the background as we drove up through the Oak Creek as well as some Navajo inside information she'd gleaned from people she knew. The walk through Antelope Slot was great. Plenty of pushy people though. Horseshoe bend had tons of tourists and it felt crowded, but I understand we had a pretty good day as sometimes the crowds are overwhelming. All in all a great trip and we'll look for other trips next year.
Overall it was a great experience and Upper Antelope Canyon was beautiful and our guide Leonard was terrific! He is a Navajo Nation treasure! He patiently took pictures for our entire group and also played a beautiful song at the end. We have some awesome pictures!We definitely could have used more time at Horseshoe Bend, 42 minutes simply isn't enough time to go down and back up the steep hill in the heat and not feel rushed. Also, from what I've read I think our pictures could have been better if we went to Upper Antelope canyon in the morning instead of the last part of our tour. The light is better earlier, and our pictures were dark in the middle of the canyon. Our bus driver, Lynn was very informative of the local flora and fauna, in addition to extensive knowledge of the origin of Sedona and the Navajo Indians!
This 12-hour tour was, without question, one of the highlights of our trip -- and we had already been in town for three days and spent considerable time at the Grand Canyon! Our shuttle driver picked us up right at our hotel, and kept us informed throughout the trip about what we were seeing, where we were going, and how long we'd be there. Before we began, we were treated to a great show by Navajo dancers. Horseshoe Bend was fantastic. There is a slight hike uphill to see it, but bring plenty of water and go at your own pace the altitude can be difficult for some, and you'll be fine. Antelope Canyon was a sight to behold. Our tour guide was a hilarious i.e., he pointed out presidents' faces in the certain angles of the rocks Native American named Leonard who knew every angle and iPhone setting we should use to capture the best shots and vivid colors. My photos are so great, I might print and frame a few of them! Our tour guide stopped the shuttle at key points during the day for restroom breaks and snack purchases. We also stopped at a fantastic store called Cameron Trading Post, where I found countless souvenirs for friends at home. A wonderful time, start to finish! Wear comfy shoes, bring SPF, money for snacks, a hat -- and bandana since there is some sand dusting down inside the slot canyon.
It was great! The day went so fast. Great food! Excellent tour guide.
Our trip to Horseshoe Bend and Antelope Canyon was everything that was promised. Our guide JR was friendly and very informative about the whole geographic area. It was a long day for all but the trip went exactly as explained including a delicious boxed lunch and there was plenty of cold water provided as it was about 100 degrees that day! The sights were amazing ! I would recommend this tour to anyone that wants to see something different from the usual sights.
