Antelope Canyon is the most-visited and most-photographed slot canyon in the American Southwest. It is located on Navajo land near Page, Arizona. The mysterious and haunting beauty of Antelope Canyon (also known as "Corkscrew Canyon"), one of the few slot canyons in the area) awaits the adventurous traveler who seeks to discover one of the most spectacular yet little known attractions of the Lake Powell area. A tour to this awe inspiring sculpture set in stone is a must for amateur and professional photographers alike. Come see nature's surprising masterpiece of color. Cost is $8/person to enter and $20/person for the mandatory tour of the lower canyons, but worth it. Go early because the crowds flood in after 10 am.

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.

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.

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.

We did the lower tour with Ken's Tours. We had an awesome tour guide name Lidell. We were not rushed at all and Lidell helped us get the best pics. Pictures do not do it justice. Absolutely incredible.
