Absolutely stunning, a must see We made a trip out here especially for this and to see Horseshoe Bend (which is very near). Gets quite hot in the summer but the canyon remains cool. Make sure you go outside of when this place gets flash floods and get a good tour group, I believe we had Navajo Trails.

Easy, scenic route. It's on Navajo land so you HAVE to get a guide to take you through. The Upper Antelope Canyon has the sun beams coming through and is shaped more like an upside down "V" whereas the Lower Antelope Canyon is shaped like a "V" and thus has more stunning views with the sun shinning on the sandstone. I heard Lower Antelope Canyon is less crowded, but I went during Memorial Day weekend so both were crowded! Although no reservations needed.

simply one of the most spectacular places on earth. we visited the lower canyon in mid-January. We were the only two on the 1:30 tour ($26 cash), and our guide, Sheldon, was wonderful. He played the flute and showed us his favorite photo-opps within the canyon. There is no way to capture the absolutely jaw-dropping beauty of the canyon in a picture but by the same token, you can't take a bad picture there.

The lower canyon starts at what looks like a small crevice...one too small for a grown man to enter, but enter we did, down steep metal steps to the inner canyon. Along the way there are several sets of stairs. Not a problem for most people; just an FYI for anyone with an aversion to stair climbing.

As you walk along the canyon, be sure to look behind you--and don't be shy about crouching, leaning and contorting to capture special angles; you'll be glad you did.

Simply amazing. The photos don't do it justice. You must enter the canyon with a guide, and the cost is $26 per person. This includes the park entrance fee, and it is cash-only. There is not a developed rest area at the trailhead, so if you have an aversion to portable toilets, stop somewhere on the way.

Absolutely stunning. We did the lower canyon as it is longer and the tour size is much smaller about 15 led by a local Navajo. Well worth the cost and drive.

An amazing place and experience! The only reason I give this four and not five stars is because it is a guided tour. With that in mind...There are two parts of this slot canyon. The upper is shorter and costs more to do ($42/person vs $26/person) mainly because it is where the famous photo of the shaft of light is located. We decided to take the lower canyon since it is three times longer than the upper and has smaller crowds. It is less of a hike and more of a guided nature walk; you must go with a local Indian guide. They take small groups out every 15 - 30 minutes and are inside the canyon for 45 - 90 minutes depending on the guide and how busy it is that day. Page was over 100 degrees the day we went so the crowds were thin. The tours begin at 8 in the morning and stop at 4 in the evening. If there is any chance of a flash flood / storms they cancel the tour. Make sure you have plenty of water and the ability to take a ton of photos. The pictures say 10,000 words. Don't forget to see the dinosaur prints in the rock.
Special Note: The lower canyon guides allowed us to use our ticket several times that day and every time we found that the changing light made each time unique.
