Antelope Canyon Guides

If you are planning on touring stunning Antelope Canyon through Antelope Canyon Navajo Tours, chances are you want to learn as much as possible about what your experience will entail at the Canyon. This includes understanding who the tour guides are that will be helping you during your adventure. Read on to learn a little more about who our guides are and what they love about their job with what many visitors call the best Antelope Canyon tour company around.

Our Tour Guides: Members of the Navajo Nation

All of our tour guides are members of the Navajo Nation who are fully authorized to lead tours of Antelope Canyon. You may or may not know that Antelope Canyon lays on land belonging to the Begay family near Page, Arizona. The Begay family are longstanding members of the LeChee Chapter of the Navajo Nation. Antelope Canyon is a sacred site of the Navajo people, for whom it is a spiritually significant location akin to a cathedral that is deserving of that level of respect. As a result, it is a Navajo Tribal Park that can only be visited via permit while a tourist is being led by an authorized guide. Being members of the Navajo Nation allows our tour guides to truly understand and appreciate the Canyon as well as its historical and cultural importance.

  • Sharing Mother Nature: Allowing tourists to share the gifts of Mother Nature that have been bestowed upon the Navajo people—as well as seeing the positive effects, such as joy and astonishment, that entering the Canyon has on visitors—makes their jobs extremely satisfying for our guides.
