Guided Tour to Upper Antelope Canyon – Chief Tsosie’s guides know all the hot spots and they will guide you through an amazing natural wonder of Antelope Canyon. They will provide you with the secret knowledge of photographing the beams and dance with the sand. We will have little chance to be alone in the canyon on this tour, nor will we be able to hear the quiet that some of the other tour-times provide, but this tour is a photographic extravaganza.We believe we have the best time starting at 10:30am for photographing the canyon. We get the early development of the light beams and stay until the beams start to lift off the canyon floor. This tour is lead with precision and experience.
10:20am – This is the prime sunbeam tour. The colors are fairly uniform throughout the canyon and visibility is good. If some of the colors are not as brilliant, be assured that at their worst, they are spectacular. We linger at the sunbeams which pour down like heavenly messages. We will have little chance to be alone in the canyon on this tour, nor will we be able to hear the quite that some of the other tour-times provide, but this is a visual extravaganza. Sunbeam comes in from April 1 – Sept 30.
12:25pm – The colors are very similar to the late morning tour, but the north end is slowly becoming the brightest, most colorful end. Some of the people are beginning to thin out, which allows you a more personal experience. A marvelous blend of color, shape and majesty will strike you on this tour!
2:30pm – The richness of color in the afternoon rivals the morning. Calming and still, the canyon becomes clear of other adventures. There is a good chance that you will have parts of the canyon all to yourself. It is a time to pause for reflection in a spiritual wonderland, let the quiet and color soak into your bone marrow, and take a bit of the canyon into your heart.
