How to book a tour for Antelope Canyon

The Antelope Canyons have fast risen to Top 5 status among the Page, Arizona area’s “must do” activities. You are required to tour them with a Navajo Tribe-authorized guide service, and advance reservations are an absolute must!  Why You Should Book In Advance…

Canyon Overview

So where does one start? To book a tour for Antelope Canyon, you must first decide whether you want to tour Lower or Upper Antelope Canyon, or both

Upper Antelope Canyon is an above-ground slot canyon. It’s an easy, flat 100 yard walk, following a 2-mile off-road ride from the Navajo Tribal Park Gate on US98 to the canyon’s entrance. Upper Antelope Canyon is also where you can catch those world-famous sunbeams between the spring and fall months, but only during peak time tours. If you are traveling with infants, young children, seniors, or anyone with mobility limitations, Upper Antelope Canyon would be the best choice for your slot canyon touring experience, however, only 3 of the 5 Upper Antelope Canyon tour operators allow children under 5 on their tours. Also, wheelchairs and strollers are not allowed due to the difficulty of maneuvering these devices through potentially deep sand. 

 

Lower Antelope Canyon is a longer slot canyon (~600 yards), situated below-ground. Touring it requires descending and ascending a series of ladders, and stepping over a few boulders. Access to the canyon is directly from the Tribal Park Gate on US98. If everyone in your traveling party is in reasonably good health and can handle moderate exercise, you should be fine in Lower Antelope Canyon. Although infants and younger children are allowed on Lower Antelope Canyon tours, parents should consider carefully whether this would be an appropriate or safe activity. Although backpack and chest child carriers are allowed, low rock ledges and other hazards could detract from the enjoyment of this experience for all concerned. Consider these facts carefully before booking a tour of Lower Antelope Canyon with your baby or toddler.

  1. Hello, is July 2023 all booked up for Upper Antelope Canyon Tours? Or have those dates just not been released yet? Thanks for your help.

    1. Hi Amy,
      Not surprised to hear that summer tickets are selling out fast, but I checked several Upper Antelope Canyon tour companies and some still show availability for July 2023. You might try checking the following sites individually when you have a moment:

      Good luck and safe travels,

    1. Hi Lacey,
      Pregnant women should consider carefully whether an Antelope Canyon tour would pose a risk to themselves and their unborn baby.
      You should probably take a pass on Lower Antelope Canyon, depending how far along in your pregnancy you are. The canyon itself is ~600 yards in length, and requires descending and ascending several flights of stairs to enter and exit. Check out this full video walk-through to see what we mean; you might even show it to your OB/GYN. Upper, while shorter in length, does involve a 2-mile 4WD ride from the Tribal Park Entrance on the highway to the mouth of the canyon. While brief, it can be quite bumpy, which again, might be risky for you and the baby. Another consideration, depending on the time of year you’re traveling, is weather. If you are visiting during the summer months, the canyon’s exterior can be quite hot. Physical exertion under these conditions is contraindicated for pregnant women.
      Long story short, follow your doctor’s advice, and heed the tour company’s policies regarding pregnancy. If you are unable to visit Antelope Canyon this time around, plan on a return visit to Page, AZ, when you and your little one can enjoy everything the area has to offer together!

      Hope that helps. Good luck and safe travels,
      Alley 🙂

  2. hello
    I am writing to ask about your cancellation policy.
    Is there a refund if you cancel a tour due circumstances ?
    if we have to cancel do we get a refund or do we have to rebook , if we have to re-book how long would our payment be valid for ?

    I realise that many may have asked this question but I am not able to find any information about a cancellation policy on your sire
    Thanks
    Jawahar

    1. Hi Jawahar,
      As long as you cancel your tour at least 72 hours prior to your actual tour date, you can get a full refund.
      If you were to opt to re-book, your payment would be valid until you the day you actually take your tour.
      Hope that helps.
      Good luck and safe travels,
      Alley 🙂

  3. Hello,
    I want to book a upper level antelope tour but I need additional information. Where do I find this tour company when I arrive in Page? Where do I park my car? When try to book it doesn’t say who I am booking with?

    1. Hi Rene,
      The tour company you will travel with when booking via our site is Tsosie’s Antelope Slot Canyon Tours. They are located in downtown Page, AZ, across from the Mesa Theatre on Lake Powell Boulevard. Their tour vehicles are typically parked out front, which is where you can also park your vehicle. In the event parking is full at their office, there is a Safeway market a short distance down the street with ample parking.
      Hope that helps. Please contact me directly at horseshoe.bend.az@gmail.com if you have further questions.

  4. I am also trying to change reservation and the email listed bounces back. When I contact the Dixie tour company directly for the lower canyon, they say I need to contact the third party (you) that I booked it through. Is there a phone # to call someone? This is ridiculous that we are unable to contact anyone.

    1. Dear Michelle,
      I am sorry for the difficulties you are experiencing.
      Your inquiry and contact information has been forwarded to the site manager, who will get back to you as soon as possible with a solution.
      Thank you for visiting our site,
      Alley

  5. I emailed reservations@antelopecanyon.az to cancel a booking before the 72 hr deadline only to have the email bounce back. I am seeking a refund and to my surprise this is a third party so Dixie cannot refund me. How do I get a refund if I am unable to contact this third party company?

    1. Hi Jadie,
      Apologies for the trouble you’re having, however, this forum is for informational purposes only. Reservations cannot be canceled or modified here.
      I recommend you examine your original confirmation e-mail to verify the address it came from. If that doesn’t help, reach out to your credit card company. They will usually vouch for cardholders in situations like these.
      I am sorry I could not be more helpful.

  6. I had an appointment for the Antelope Canyon X Tours with Honoka Yamaguchi for at 1:00pm. However, due to traffic and time difference, it is unlikely that they will be able to make it by 1:00pm. Is it possible to change the appointment time to 2:30pm or 3:00pm? Thanks.

    1. Hi Shogo,
      This forum is for informational purposes only. It cannot be used to cancel or modify existing reservations. This must be done with the tour operator you booked with, who, in the case of Antelope Canyon X, is Taadidiin Tours. For same-day cancellations or changes, you should probably contact them by phone at (928) 660-8890.
      Hopefully, you were able to change your reservations without incident.

  7. Hello,

    I got an email over a third party messenger and have to cancel my tour to do it on another day but my emails to the email adress for cancellations/ reservations don’t get through and I have no other means of contacting anyone here. Please someone reach out to me again, with an email adress I can reply to, so I can cancel and get my money refunded.

    Best.
