Easy "hike" for a family with 9, 7, 5 and 1 year old. Our guide instructed us on different techniques for getting really cool photos. We used Ken's. We did NOT have reservations and were still able to get a tour. I don't necessarily recommend the risk, but it was fairly easy to do so. However, it is on a first come, first serve basis when they open at 8a. We took the 9:20 tour. I thought the lighting was just fine to take photos with my measly iPhone 7+ camera.

Be ready to climb down 5 flights of stairs for some amazing photos. It's a little tight in spots, but this is an awesome tour. I didn't think we would be allowed to bring our water pack, but it was no problem. It cost $25 through Ken's Tours and an additional $8 for a Navajo fee and it was well worth it. Our guide was Desi and compared to the guides behind us, he was the best there.

Ok. This is not hiking- it's a tourist attraction. So please know that. You can't have a water bladder pack due to the tight fit as you travel through. It's a guided tour- no option to walk or hike on your own. No hat or sun screen needed. It's cool in the shade and we went on a day that was over 100 out. I loved this tourist attraction and recommend it to anyone with a wonder bucket list. I think it's important to know it's not a hike. So you park and go to a ramada and pay 8$ cash per person and $40 per adult and $20 per child (credit/debit accepted) for that portion. No exceptions about taking anything besides what fits in your pockets and one bottle of water. And you really don't need anything else. I had my phone and chap stick in my pockets and we ran our water ladders back to the car in the parking lot. Then you get into a covered truck bed for a 15 minute ride to the canyon. I posted a picture of the truck so you can see what I'm talking about. There's lots and lots of dirt. Not a problem just don't wear make up and be ready to be filthy. Bring a cloth or something to put over your nose and mouth during the truck ride. I had a thick layer of dirt covering my face at the end. That's fine- just expect it. The tour guides are awesome but want you to keep moving. They will show you all the great spots to take pictures. They will take some for you. We gave him a $25 tip because we really appreciated him and had 5 people with us. The ride into the canyon was about 30 minutes total and then the walk through the canyon was about an hour. The floor of the canyon is inches of fine dust and sand stone so wear your oldest pair of shoes. Totally crowded and brushing shoulders with others the entire time. Not a problem... just don't expect to be alone in the canyon. I do give it 5 stars as a great beautiful and wonderful attraction. It's not hiking. Awesome pictures.

My husband and I checked this off our bucket list this last April. Our 3yr old had a great time too. It was really busy but our guide was amazing. You are herded through like cattle. We stayed in Page the night before. I recommend the Sleep Inn or Holiday Inn. Book before you come. They sell out fast. Book your tour online before you get there amd do the photo tour.

I preferred the lower canyon to the upper--less crowded (once you get in the canyon), and there is consistent light. Both canyons were a great experience. We did the upper at 11am and caught some good sun beams around noon, and we did the lower canyon around 230 and had to wait a bit to get in but the entire canyon was glowing...so it was worth it to go at prime time. Lower canyon has more stairs and narrower slots to get through. Upper canyon is really just a Sandy walk.

You need to do upper and lower for the full effect! This is a very easy stroll but an absolute must just to experience those beams of light! Incredible...can't wait to go again!

You need to do a tour to see this... was worth it if you go on the early tour (7am) gorgeous! But more of a walk than a hike

Definitely not a 'hike' and not the friendliest of tour guides BUT it's a must see if you are ever in Arizona :) fall time the sun doesn't hit the canyon walls so the bright orange and red doesn't stand out as much but still beautiful!

Beautiful place! Tour guides were great. You can't hike this area unless you pay for the tour though.

You can only hike through this Canyon with a tour guide. I have to say it was well worth the price. It is an easy hike and the tour guide we got was great! One word of advice, bring a bandana of some sort because the sand blows.

I was actually told by a local to skip this, but I did not listen and was happy for that. Yes, it is a pricey tour, is crowded, and according to other reviews I have read, over photographed. However, you can look at all the photos in the world and it doesn't compare to seeing it with your own eyes, being able to reach out and touch the stone with your own hands, and feeling the coolness of the Canyon bottom while looking up at the hot sun through the myriad of colours and shapes created by the Canyon opening. Our guide was very humorous and informative as well. I found it to be worth the money and crowding to go. Also, there are two sides: I went to Lower which is supposedly less crowded and expensive.

Beautiful views of sandstone walls hit by sunlight during the 3pm tour. A main attraction that you can't miss! Go earlier if you can and get ready to be sandblasted (do not wear contacts). Antelope Canyon Tours by Chief Tsosies are awesome. They were perfectly on time, friendly, and informative.

Amazinggggg

Stunningly beautiful, but the guided tours are crammed into the canyon at regular intervals, so don't expect a quiet or serene experience. This was my second time into Lower Antelope Canyon, and the trailhead now has a visitor center. It was MUCH busier than it was years ago when I first visited. I think Instagram has made this a bit too popular.

The price is $25 for the tour guide plus $8 for the tribal entrance fee. The tribal fee must be paid in CASH.
