Full description

Get to know Canyon X in Antelope Canyon with a guide.

Located southeast of Lower Antelope canyon by the gateway town of Page, Ari. This part of the canyon is chiseled out by millions of years' worth of flood erosion and impactful winds on its sandstone, enough to sculpt out the iconic "X" shape that aptly named the canyon.

Canyon X is a relatively new scenic tour and the lesser-known cousin of Upper/Lower Antelope Canyon, which results in fewer visitors by comparison to the other two.

Canyon X is a mixture of the characteristics of both the Upper and Lower canyon, with the Upper's feature of pillars of light and the Lower's steepness. Canyon X is also deeper than the other two and brings ample photo opportunities. It truly is a great vacation spot for photography as well.

Our guided tour was awesome! We arrived early, and they were kind enough to bump our group up to an earlier time slot. Marco was great. He was very informative and personable. He allowed us ample time to take all the pictures that we wanted. I would highly recommend this hidden gem to all visiting the area.

The tour was really great and is a very different experience than lower Antelope Canyon. The lower is extremely crowded and you actually stand in line through the entire canyon. You rarely hear the guide. Nevertheless, the lower is of course the visual highlight. The Canyon X is shorter but also much emptier. Here you can hear the guide continuously. And our guide really told a lot about the history of the canyon and even showed us how such a canyon is created with a false water. Both canyons are definitely worth seeing. Our recommendation, first X Canyon, then lower Canyon. But you can of course book cheaper on site with the provider. Places are scarce because there are really a lot of people there, but you actually always get something. You just have to be a bit flexible with the time. But no guarantee, if you want to be sure and want to save yourself the stress, this is the place for you.

The canyon was beautiful. The tour I felt was a bit rushed, you were going through the canyon and would stop for a quick picture then would have to get out of the way for the next group. I would’ve like more time to enjoy the canyon. I think they’re just trying to get as many people and tours through.
