“A Natural Wonder!”
Reviewed 11 April 2014

This is an amazing place, a real Natural wonder,
the only "side effect" is the short time that the tour guides give to the people to admire this amazing place.
Business is business so they kept on "pushing" the people through the trail without giving enough time to "live" this place.

“MUST SEE!!!”
Reviewed 7 February 2014 via mobile

This photo tour is a must for Antelope Canyon if you like to take your time and get great shots. My husband is a professional photographer and this was our first time visiting Antelope Canyon. It is not accessible without a guide and these guys are absolutely the way to go. This is a Navajo family run company showing you around Navajo land and they are great at it. We went in the slow season and didn't have a reservation and they totally accommodated us, even driving us up to meet a group that had just left so we didn't have to wait. Our guides name was Woody and he was amazing. He had a lot of great insights as to what to shoot and when, but also let us have as much space and time as we needed to get the shots we wanted. We were able to spend two hours in the canyon itself and we enjoyed every minute. There were other guided tour options that had larger groups and moved through at a much quicker pace, but for anyone looking to get more than a 'point and click' picture this is definitely the way to go. They also do night tours which we are absolutely doing the next time we're here. These guys are the best, you will not be disappointed.

“24 Dec 2013 Rattlesnake & Upper Antelope Canyons Photo Tour”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

We got up early that morning for an 8:30 tour with Navajo Antelope Canyon Photo Tours of Upper Antelope and Rattlesnake Canyons. Lionel met us promptly at 8:30 and explained he was waiting on another couple and the four of us would start the tour with his guide Nate. The other couple never showed so we had a private tour of Rattlesnake Canyon with no one to distract us in setting up the cameras or describing the different locations. It was like a tour and camera class all rolled into one event. Nate helped me set up the camera specifically for the best settings in the canyon. I had two cameras one with a 18-140 zoom and one 50mm 1.4 so low light situations could be handled well. The first canyon was a blast with a little climbing and a nice adventure. From there we moved on to Upper Antelope Canyon and even though it was off season there were multiple tour companies herding tourists through the canyon like cattle. Many of the tourists wandered about not even staying with their tour guide. Nate worked very well with the situation and showed us not only where to stand, but if there was a setting change he described what needed to be changed. When no one was around for a moment or two let us know the best shot for the moment of quietness. We had a great time in both canyons, but sure glad we did not book one of the cattle tours that rushed people through in about 20 minutes. The slot canyons were beautiful with the curves and lighting that was beautiful even though it was not the time of year that the light goes directly into the top of the canyon. We had about three and a half hours to tour the two canyons and travel to and from the parking area. It was a blast and Nate made the entire tour a photo experience. After the tour was completed we stopped for a lunch we had packed in the parking lot and discussed our next adventure for the day.

“Enjoyed the tour ! What a lovely tour company”
Reviewed 28 November 2013

With a young baby I had to do the quick tour (this doesn't allow tripods). Our guide was excellent, she knew where you had to stand to take photos so we didn't have to work it out. My husband took the photographic tour and went to Rattlesnake canyon which he enjoyed.
The tour group size is small even though they have many people signing up. My group size was 7 which I believe is just right. Other tours had more people and looked like they were rushed thru the canyon.
If you are interested in taking some great photos, I would suggest the longer tours of more than 3 hrs, that way you can take your time.
Don't expect a quiet tour in Antelope Canyon, it is crowded and popular.

“Most amazing tour ever”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

If you go to Page and you are willing to do the Antelope Canyon Tour - take this one. I had an awesome day. Take Tour 4 with all 4 canyons - every Canyon is the money worth it.
