Are you getting ready for your Upper Antelope Canyon Tour? The Canyon has its own, rare form of beauty that will leave you awestruck. However, knowing exactly what to expect ahead of time can help you have the most memorable experience possible. Here is what you can get ready to enjoy during your visit when you book your Guided Sightseers Tour with Antelope Canyon Navajo Tours.

Preparing for Your Tour

Prepare for your Upper Antelope tour by packing a camera, water bottle and any other items you may need, including sunscreen, a jacket, and sunglasses. Monopods, tripods, and selfie sticks are not allowed—bags are also not permitted. Guests must also understand that spreading ashes and littering is forbidden, as these acts are considered desecration of the Canyon, which is a sacred site of the Navajo people. You do not have to pay any money up-front to reserve your tour spot online, so prepare to pay when you arrive. Note that your tour package price will include the required park permit fee. Are you concerned about bringing your kids along for the journey? You will be happy to know that we welcome children of all ages at our tours—they even receive a discounted rate. Keep in mind that very young children will need a car seat for the truck ride to the Canyon, and there are no restrooms on-site.

Check-In and Truck Ride

When you arrive at Antelope Canyon Navajo Tours, you will begin at the staging area to wait in line for check-in. You will need to pay at this time, whether you have made reservations or choose a walk-in tour. Remember to arrive one hour prior to the start time so you can ensure that you reserve your spot. From here, you will ride a 4×4 truck to the mouth of the Upper Canyon to begin your tour.

Your Time Inside the Canyon

Inside the Canyon, your knowledgeable, friendly tour guide—a member of the Navajo Nation—will show you the most stunning and popular sights inside Upper Antelope. If you visit during a summer afternoon, you will be able to experience the beautiful summer light beams. An off-season visit will give you the opportunity to see the beautiful changing light beams on the canyon walls. If you need help capturing the best Antelope Canyon photos possible, your tour guide can help you find the best angles and settings.

The End of The Tour

When your tour is over, you will return to the staging area from the 4×4 truck. Expect the entire round-trip experience to last 90 minutes. If you would like to spend some more time in the Page, Arizona area, consider staying at a local hotel overlooking gorgeous Lake Powell so you can slow down and savor your visit.
