In truth words can't do justice to this tour. It's a long day, but one that you don't want to end. Our driver and guide for the day was Don who was friendly and informative throughout, whilst keeping us to schedule. The long journey was amply broken up with breaks. The first sightseeing is horseshoe bend where the Colorado River doubles back on itself around the canyon. There's a short walk to get there on a comfortable trail and a viewing platform with a fense, or other areas where you can go to the edge of the canyon (not recommended) Next we went to Antelope Canyon where our local guide Brian S took us down to see the rock structures. He showed us the best photo angles and took some picture for us. A great guy and full of passion for the local ecology. After this we had a short lunch break (with several choices of where to eat) then on to see the dam on lake Powell before heading back.

This trip was actually much more interesting than I expected it to be and Deanna was an excellent guide, providing all sorts of background information on the places that we visited and photography hints and tips.

Bernice our Upper Canyon Local tour guide was excellent.. she had the best stories and history of the canyon.. she assisted us with take great pictures and she is the eye of the canyon.

Had to wait for the other couple to reserve the tour, so it was a bit troublesome, but the tour was quite spectacular, and the guide was very professional and kind.

Everything is perfect and we have so much fun. Highly recommended
