Antelope Canyon X: Admission Ticket and Guided Tour

1. Antelope Canyon X: Admission Ticket and Guided Tour

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.

Those who want to do more than just gamble can see the Las Vegas Strip in all its neon glory on a night helicopter flight, and airborne views of the magnificent vistas of the Grand Canyon will leave visitors in awe.

Tourists to California can see San Francisco's iconic Golden Gate Bridge. And for the starstruck, a Hollywood movie tour of popular bars or the famous Mann's Chinese Theater is just the ticket.

Take a tour of the USA – it's unforgettable!
