Antelope Canyon X: Admission Ticket and Guided Tour

1. Antelope Canyon X: Admission Ticket and Guided Tour

Get to know Canyon X in Antelope Canyon with a guide. Located southeast of Lower Antelope canyon by the gateway town of Page, Ari. This part of the canyon is chiseled out by millions of years' worth of flood erosion and impactful winds on its sandstone, enough to sculpt out the iconic "X" shape that aptly named the canyon. Canyon X is a relatively new scenic tour and the lesser-known cousin of Upper/Lower Antelope Canyon, which results in fewer visitors by comparison to the other two. Canyon X is a mixture of the characteristics of both the Upper and Lower canyon, with the Upper's feature of pillars of light and the Lower's steepness. Canyon X is also deeper than the other two and brings ample photo opportunities. It truly is a great vacation spot for photography as well.

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.

Our tour was with Taadidiin Tours. It was incredible -- the tour guide was friendly, funny, knowledgeable, accommodating, and also a whiz with getting the best pictures. The canyon itself is gorgeous, and it was not too crowded so we got to spend time, look around, learn, ask questions, etc. Would definitely tour with them again!!! So glad we went, and with this company which we had not heard of prior to our visit.

Incredible! We were able to walk entirety of the lower canyon. Pictures cant do this place justice, but Jose our tour guide, was able to get a few breath taking photos of us. would 10/10 recommend. Like banana bread at work.

All of the stops along the tour were breathtaking. The driver and guide were extremely knowledgeable and very kind.

we were lucky to get a slot last minute for midday, when the sun ☀️ is highest and colors are most impressive

Gabe our guide was great! The experience overall was amazing my pictures turned out beautiful!
