Jerry Jr. from Dixie Ellis Lower Antelope Canyon Tours was a awesome and funny tour guide. Very knowledgeable about the history of the Canyon. The Canyon it self is easy but note it does have steep stairs going up and down the Canyon. It also gets narrower as you walk deeper in. Definitely something to visit while in Page, AZ.
This was too short for a fifth star. Antelope Canyon was on my bucket list so my mum and I drove up from Phoenix, spent the night in Page and toured Antelope the next day with Antelope Canyon Tours by Caroline Ekis. (If you have the chance, ask to tour with Abraham, 5 stars for Abraham, he knows his stuff.) We started at the tour site in the morning, boarded a pickup truck with a covered box with bench seating that sat about 20 people and drove about ten twenty minutes to the site.
The hike itself is easy: flat, sand over rock and wide enough for a couple people to pass by side by side. There are rocky outcroppings that'll concuss you if you're not paying attention and I can guarantee you'll be craning your neck upwards enough of the time for that to be a reality so take a spotter! My only complaint is that the slot is short, it took us only 45 minutes to get to the end, if people hadn't been photographing every four feet it would have been 25-30 minutes, so it's not a long trek. For how long I'd been dying to get in there I was expecting a longer trek.
Set your camera to chrome before going in or the pictures won't capture the light right and they'll be greyed out and dull. (Your guide will very likely tell you this when you get there.) Go mid-morning for the best light. (Again, when you call to book the tour group will advise you on that based on the time of year you are going in.)
An absolute must if you are in the area. The colors and shapes of the water worn sandstone inside this slot canyon are hard to describe. You have to be there to see it. During the summer solstice time of year, these canyons are at their best for the lighting. You can just drive up and get a reservation that day. Upper Antelope you have to reserve before getting there. You will have to walk with a Navajo guide though. You can't do it alone. But they are good about letting you take your time to photograph as much as you want.
Instead of taking this trail the normal walk (guide led + $$$) My fiancé and I rented Kayaks and did a half day kayak tour through the slot canyon from the opposite end. It was just us and the views were incredible, on water and when we got to land. Plus, you could walk as far down the slot canyon as you like! We saw a tarantula, and a dead rattlesnake and we had it entirely to ourselves. It was a truly amazing experience.

My tour guide did an awesome job! Knew a lot of information and was quite entertaining also. A must see while in AZ!!!
Ken's tour: We walked in and got two reservations right away in late October. At the entrance you have to pay $8/person fee and the tour is $20/person.
A tour guy takes on 10 people and walk to the valley. Walk/climb down three sets of steep stairs and the beautiful rock formations are all over you face.
We didn't have the luck to see any sun beams, but we are still very satisfied. The walk is short but you have to constantly stop for pictures. We spent in the valley around 1 hour and 45 minutes. The tour guy said summer is not good because of the crowds.
