Viator Confirmation Messages Are All Confusing.
David_C, Mar 2023
Viator booking sends confusing confirmation messages. Messages say your ticket is attached and the ticket itself says “This is not your entry ticket”. All Viator messages are confusing! There are far too many messages sent prior to the event booked and all messages and notifications are confusing!
Andrea_L, Mar 2023
Beautiful! Nice staff, got nice photos with friends. This is mostly an instagramy tour, for taking photos.
Best Antelope Canyon Tour
David_R, Mar 2023

Antelope Canyon X-perience
Dina_M, Mar 2023
The shapes, colors and textures were extraordinary! I’ve been to many countries and have seen many wonders- but this , without a doubt, was the most magnificent!
Our guide was incredible!
I hope to return again
Caves are unbelievable. ...
Barbara_L, Mar 2023
Caves are unbelievable. Nothing like them anywhere else. Our guide was great. He is very knowledgeable and did the tour at a perfect pace.
Don’t X this off your list
Gepp_B, Mar 2023
I’ve visited the upper Antelope canyon and was awed by its magnificence. This time, Canyon X is a big surprise! Not only that is has similar picturesque spots as the former, the light hike, the river bed separating the canyons, and the overall location, in my opinion, tops the upper canyon sibling. And there are signs of improving this up and coming natural site
Kudos to our guide, Navajo native, Al who seems very timid, but is very knowledgeable.
Worth the trip
Deborah_M, Feb 2023
The canyon was beautiful and well worth the trip. Be where getting out of the canyon can be strenuous.
Anne_B, Feb 2023
Perfect experience, with kind people. Marco was a good guide and gave us photo tips. He loves to joke what makes this experience even more wonderful. Laurie the driver shared her story with us during the shuttle trip and was so kind.
Arthur_W, Jan 2023
Antelope Canyon X is not as good as upper/lower Antelope canyon. The view is kinda boring and the tour guide is not professional.
Tour was beautiful!...
Ellie_R, Jan 2023
Tour was beautiful! Definitely a place worth seeing in Arizona if you have the chance. My friends and I got some awesome pictures and went to horseshoe bend nearby afterward.
BARBARA_W, Jan 2023
Our guide "Van" was great on sharing tips and tricks for good photos and showing us different formations in the rocks. We were allowed to take our time and it was not crowded. We went in January. The day we visited, it was muddy and caused a bit of a mess in the parking lot. This canyon is not quite as long as the lower but still very beautiful.
Short and easy trip
Gina_K, Jan 2023
We wanted to see the Antelope Canyon but did not feel like we needed to be there for super long. Antelope X was the perfect length, and the guide was very informative about the history and rock formation. Easy to walk around and take plenty of cool pictures.
DO NOT BOOK THROUGH VIATOR
Saba_M, Jan 2023
The tour was good but Viator charged $25 over the price that the tour’s website. The Viator website says they have the lowest price guarantee and they would price match but the customer service said it was passed 72 hours. Do bot book through viator and just purchase from the tours website especially if you are going with a larger group.
Phyllis_K, Jan 2023
It was a short, but amazing trek through the canyon! So glad I did it! Staff was great. Very friendly. Definitely a “bucket list “ outing.
Stephanie_W, Jan 2023
This was a definite bucket list for me. Our guide Gabriel was personable, and made this experience truly incredible. He shared stories of his culture and history of the area that will stay with me and my family.
Catherine_P, Dec 2022
We have Ben wanting to visit the slot canyons for some time and were not disappointed. Our guide,Jess, was great and even pointed out great places to take photos and took some of our group with their cameras. Highly recommend!
