The Grand Canyon, the Colorado River, Lake Powell, Tower Butte, and Zion National Park are nearby examples. Others visit the Canyon after spending some time in Las Vegas or exploring Horseshoe Bend. Antelope Canyon is a sacred site of the Navajo people, so you will have to book a tour to see all that the site has to offer. You will want to choose the best Antelope Canyon tour company to meet your needs so you can have the best experience possible. Here are some things to consider when choosing a tour operator.
One of the first things to decide is whether you want to visit Upper Antelope Canyon or Lower Antelope Canyon. Different tour companies take visitors through different areas. Both canyons offer their own benefits to nature lovers. Lower Antelope Canyon offers a longer, complicated path that may be exciting if you want an involved hiking tour. The lower slot canyon also tends to be less crowded, as its views are less popular among most tourists.
Upper Antelope Canyon is where you will find its famous summer light beams. Crowds tend to be denser, but traveling its length is easier and tours are shorter. Winter visitors can enjoy changing colors on Upper Antelope’s walls and enjoy cooler weather and fewer crowds. Choose which slot canyon you want to see, and then pick a reputable tour company that offers guided visits of that particular area.

Some companies, such as Antelope Canyon Navajo Tours, will offer both. A sightseeing tour is what most general visitors will want to book.
