Almost a private tour, no rush to take pictures and plenty of time to enjoy the scenery. Very nice Indian family who shows you this amazing Canyon. Antelope Canyon is too busy and too crowded. Waterhole Canyon is a true hidden gem!

When in Page, we did The Water Holes canyon and Antelope Canyon. I would recommend both. They are different. The nice part about water hole canyon is that you have the canyon almost by yourself (very small group, in our case 5 plus the guide)...More
