Embark on a photographer's dream with this combo Lower Antelope Canyon admission ticket to and guided walking tour with a Navajo guide. Get a rare, up-close look at the water-carved sandstone walls of one of the most visited canyons. Over the years, Lower Antelope Canyon has become a favorite gathering place for photographers, tourists, and visitors from around the world. The Navajo name for Lower Antelope Canyon is Hasdeztwazi or “Spiral Rock Arches.” This picturesque canyon has been created over many thousands of years by the relentless forces of water and wind, slowly carving and sculpting the sandstone into forms, textures, and shapes, all of which you’ll get to observe during your visit. The views in Lower Antelope Canyon change constantly as the sun moves across the sky, filtering lights softly across the stone walls. These ever-moving sun angles bounce light back and forth across the narrow canyon’s walls, creating a dazzling display of color, light, and shadow. For photographers, with proper exposures, you can bring out the best in your own creativity. For aspiring or non-photographers alike, there is a magical new world to explore and immerse yourself in.

The tour to the Grand Canyon was an exceptional experience with Carlito as our guide! His ability to provide entertaining and informative explanations really added to the enjoyment of the trip. Plus, it was a bonus when everything was well-organized, making the experience even smoother and more enjoyable. If I were booking a tour, I'd definitely be looking for one with a guide like Carlito!

It was a very, very long journey. This is something to keep in mind... Time at the Grand Canyon is limited. For us it was a total of 2.5 hours. Still absolutely worth seeing and worth the long bus ride for us. The tour guide Aloe was fantastic.

You had to be very early and the bus arrived right on time. In addition, he stopped at our hotel for a couple who had not been to the right starting point…

Carlito was extremely knowledgeable and provided a lot of information and insight about our trip. He made it fun and very enjoyable. Awesome job!

Our guy Sheldon did a great job. He knew where to go and what to do to make the best out of our day.
