  • This is a great tour if you want to enjoy the slot canyon and avoid the crowded over hyped places. Me and my wife were glad that we took this tour. Our tour was at 11 am and there was just one family ...  more »

  • great experience, we loved this tour! we got to see the beautiful canyon with the perfect lighting ( and got amazing pictures !!). It wasn’t crowded at all, in fact it almost felt like a private tour, and our guide was super interesting! we strongly recommend this tour !!!
  • Loved this trail. I've always heard about antelope canyons but this is a hidden gem. At first we were bummed to learn that we needed to have a tour guide to get into the canyon, but he made our experience much better than it would've been. Our tour guide Jason was very knowledgeable and showed us all of the best photography places. It felt like a private tour, with only my family and two others on the tour. Their limit is 12 people per tour which provides ample time to take photos and ask questions. It was $55 per person. The hike itself was easy, but definitely hot. I'd recommend bringing two or three water bottles with you, in a backpack. I wore Chacos and I was fine, but the sand got hot and wished I had closed toe shoes on for parts of it. Overall, I'm so glad we got to experience this and I for sure will be recommending this place to friends & family.
  • Amazing tour through the narrow canyon. Perfect for a hike with kids (8 & 11).
  • Unfortunately you can no longer hike this canyon yourself with a permit but rather now you have to do a guided tour for $56 per adult which runs on a set schedule (just like antelope). They do not allow dogs on the tour.
  • This canyon was amazing, I'd recommend it over Antelope. I purchased hiking permits from the reservation permit office for $12 per person. For that expense we were able to access the canyon for the full day and explore at our own pace. It is also dog friendly, which is a huge plus for us. To find the canyon entrance, make sure to follow the cairns (man-made rock piles) from the parking area off the side of the highway.
