8. Las Vegas: Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend Tour with Lunch

This tour offers two options for the Antelope Canyon, based on your selection when placing an order. The difference between Upper Antelope Canyon and Lower Antelope Canyon: The Upper Antelope Canyon is completely on the ground, easy for walking. You can observe the light beams radiating from the top of the canyons. The best visiting time is at noon, from 10:00am-2:00pm Visiting Upper Antelope Canyon requires climbing several staircases up and down. It is much longer and some places are much narrower, difficult for hiking. You can see the dreamlike shapes and curves of rocks under the constantly changing light. The Lower Antelope Canyon is located several miles from the Upper Antelope Canyon. Prior to the installation of metal stairways, visiting the canyon required climbing pre-installed ladders in certain areas. The lower canyon is in the shape of a "V" and shallower than the Upper Antelope. Lighting is better in the early hours and late morning. Horseshoe Bend: The name was inspired by its unusual shape, a horseshoe-shaped meander of the Colorado River.

based on 648 reviews

It was a very early pick-up time, 6am and had to be at the pickup point around 5:45. Long hours "sitting down" in a bus to get and come back (4.5 hours each way). Antelope Canyon X is the best of lower and higher because it has both features of the individual ones. Do not bring a lunch, there is a rest stop. There, a place called Bee's or something like that, they have hot a very nice homemade hot and cold prepared food (mini buffet) and al sorts of healthy options. Worth it - made my own salad with plenty of choice in veggies, cheeses, dressings, protein, etc.

Started with a confirmation via WhatsApp was great. We could arrange the meeting point first and then the pick up time, really professional. The trip was great. We really enjoy and love it. Thanks to our tour guide Marvin from National Park Exp , we really appreciate his good job. And thanks to the driver too, Oscar, he drove us safely and sound through the day.

Amazing experience! The booking and check-in was super simple and efficient. Mario was our guide and he truly made the experience fantastic! We have dozens of great pictures thanks to him, and our other guide Krista gave some insight too. We learned so much on the tour as well. You need to book a tour for yourself!

Excellent experience! Our guide Lillian was absolutely brilliant. She is passionate, knowledgeable, and extremely good at taking amazing pictures and explained how to get our own pictures. She also recommended some great eating establishments. Would highly recommend this activity.

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