Lower Antelope Canyon Gate tour or Ken's

What is the difference between going to Lower Antelope Canyon's Gate paying the fee, tour fee, and photo pass and using Ken's Lower Antelope Canyon tours? There are three of us, one is a photographer. Thanks. Crick

"Ken's Tour" is $26, the same as tours in the upper canyon except for the premium mid-day hours. Plus the $6 entry fee for Navajo Parks (good for both canyons).

Most people do their own tour of the lower canyon. I think there is a "tour fee" for the lower canyon as well but the normal is not really a guided tour. Couldn;t find the cost info,

As I understand it, cost for Lower is the same as Upper.

Navajo Parks has eliminated the tour cost from their website. They refer you to websites of tour providers. Most Upper Canyon rates are now $35 non-prime-time and $46 for mid-day according to tours' websites.

The Navajo Parks website also says a guided tour is required for the lower canyon. Even recent trip reports have said there is really no guide.

We need updates from recent travelers going to the Antelope Canyons.

Lower is cheaper than Upper, and if you get the photo pass - you need a 'big' camera and a tripod for everybody who wants to photo pass - it is NOT more expensive.

For Lower you have to just drive yourself there and park and pay the fee - 26$ - there is no other way; reservations not possible. If you don't have a photo pass, a guide will walk with you, but leave you more or less to explore at your leisure, just making sure you do proceed along.

That's how it was when we last did it in May - can't imagine it's changed drastically since then.
