My group of 8 friends took the 5pm tour in June 2014. The location is easy to find, the gift shop is convenient, and our tour guide was fantastic! She made sure our trip to the canyon wasn't too fast...or too bumpy. She helped all 8 of us with the settings on our various cameras and phones to make sure we captured the best photos. She took the time to take several photos OF us...and some of the more tricky shots of the canyon FOR us. The fact that we took the 5pm tour was likely a major factor in her ability to provide us with such a personal experience. However, I still recommend Tours by Chief Tsosie.

The staff was exceptionally nice and the guide was a lot of fun. The tour started out with a traditional dance performed and then we loaded onto the jeep for the ride through the sand to the canyon. The ride there was trip in and of itself! The canyon was spectacular. It was everything I had hoped it would be and more. The waves of rock were beautiful and the ever changing colors made it hard to stop taking pictures. The canyon was very very crowded, but with the exception of the sun beam, you're mostly taking pictures overhead, so the crowd didn't make a difference. The guide was great at pointing things out, sharing information and history about the canyon, providing photo tips, and moving people out of the way for photo ops. All in all, it was a great tour and Antelope Slot Canyon Tours was a great choice from start to finish. You won't regret it!!!

Even since we heard a talk on slot canyons at Bryce Canyon one night, we have been waiting for a chance to get to Antelope Canyon. We've read in Trip Advisor about this tour and then when the opportunity presented itself with a trip, we took it.
One Sunday afternoon, we took the photography tour and we were privileged to have Eugene as our guide. Antelope Canyon is amazing. It is breathtaking. Actually photographs do not come close to showing the beauty of the place. (I'm going to download a picture, so you can see, though). Photography offers spectacular results, with a little thought. Even smartphone cameras turn in a reasonable product. However, a “Photographer Tour” gives the best options. There are two types of photos: Canyon Photos (walls and “ceiling”) and Light Pictures (beams and what appear to be cascades of liquid light). The light beams can be intermittent, some lasting only minutes once a day. The Photography Tour guides know the times and angles for the beam photos, and control the traffic from the ordinary tours (who see the major long-term beams). Some ideas for pictures:
1. Use a wide-angle lens or widest zoom; the amount of blowing sand makes lens changes inadvisable.
2. Do not plan to use flash photography.
3. “Bracket” exposures at least one “Exposure Value” (factor of two) over and under the measured light value. (Most digital cameras have a setting to do this automatically; most camera cards hold the factor of three increase without problems. 900 exposures (300 pictures) is probably a generous upper limit to plan for storage space.)
4. Much advice recommends a tripod; a monopod does the same job and may be easier to handle in a crowd.
5. Carry an extra battery.
Light, sparkling with sand, cascades down from the narrow opening at the canyon rim. Even at the most crowded places those shots are available. Look up, also look behind for unexpected opportunities. Expect the canyon walls to show different color in the varying light; some pictures are more "Kandinsky" than "Cave". Plan exposures for considerable contrast between the dark canyon and the light-sand cascades. Experiment with spot metering to expose for the canyon walls; use Ansel Adams’ “Zone System” if you know it.
Before the tour there is a dancer and he was fantasticl. How you dance with that many rings is great. (I'll include another picture of that, too)
Inside the canyon, you'll be jostled by so many other tourists, but the tour guides will help each other and keep the craziness a little contained.
We wouldn't take a tour from any other people!

we just came back from a wonderful trip... must make a few comments here about our tour to the slot canyons... our guide was rushing us through the canyon ahead of the pushy asians they are so rude!! I had wanted to see this amazing site for a long time and to be pushed through was so disappointing.. I asked how these canyons were formed and discovered answer..
different people ? What no history, only hurry up she did help us take some amazing photos and took a picture of us in front of the canyon at the end.. we took the 3:00 tour and the guide keep saying she had to hurry back for the 5:00 which is a better tour because the Asians are gone by then and its not so crowded.. loved the canyons disappointed in our guide she sped us back through the dirt and sand then the main street so she could get back before anyone else.

Honestly, when our group went, so did 10 other trucks too, along with 3 other trucks from the same company. Our Navajo guides were pretty cool, they knew a lot of the tricks on how to capture those IT shots. The only thing is that when you go during peak season, it's like Disneyland and stuff. If you are lucky to go when there aren't as many folks, that would be the prime opportunity. But either way, this is a something on anyone's bucket list to do here in Page.
