If you’re heading to Antelope Canyon, check out our Complete Guide and Everything You Need to Know About Antelope Canyon. This is our photo diary from the trip.
Antelope Canyon is a photographer’s playground. We explored on our own at the lower canyon slots, which is known for their color but generally less touristy. They are also less known for their light shafts. Another photographer mentioned that there is a photography tour held in the upper canyons, and the guide takes you to all the hot spots. We will most definitely do that next time since we got a sorry-ass photo of the light shafts this time around.

Lower Antelope Canyon Tours
There are only a couple of options when it comes to Lower Antelope Canyon Tours.
As a third option, and one that we highly recommend, check out the 2 Day Grand Canyon Antelope Canyon Tour from Max Tour. You get picked up form the strip and join a small group of roughly 10 people. In two days, you see Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend, the Grand Canyon, Route 66, and the Hoover Dam.
When arriving at Lower Antelope Canyon, our tour guide took care of purchasing the tickets and letting us know where to meet. We then met the local guide who took us through the canyon.
