From Las Vegas: Antelope Canyon & Horseshoe Bend Tour

Leave bustling Las Vegas and head out on a scenic drive into Navajo territory on a van tour. Explore this striking landscape with the help of a local Navajo guide, learning about the area's rich and long history. See iconic natural landmarks like Horseshoe Bend and Antelope Canyon. Begin your tour with a stop for breakfast in St. George, Utah—home to the oldest continuously operating Mormon temple in the world. After breakfast, approach the mighty Colorado River for a visit to Horseshoe Bend. Note where the river flows and meanders around the rocks creating a distinctive horseshoe-shaped loop beloved by visitors and photographers from around the world. Next, travel to where “the water runs through the rocks” as per the local Navajo folklore. Explore lower Antelope Canyon and visit the spectacular dunes created by the wind, water, and sand. With your local Navajo guide, discover the beauty of the canyon up close. Admire the beauty of the sun which creates shafts of light that shine through the slits in the canyon walls.

Danny Ho was the best guide we could get. Even though this was a looong trip he made it interesting and funny at the same time. There was also calm time to take some nap as the trip starts quite early. There are 2 things I would suggest and that is to provide information that pick up is possible from the Treasure Island, not only from Luxor (to save time for those who stay in hotels closer to Treasure island). This information was not mentioned anywhere on this website and it would save a lot time (and money for taxi) for some of us. Second thing is to count with bigger time reserve as some of us almost didn't make the check in for Antelope canyon. It always happens taht somebody is late and the rest is waiting for them, so it would be better not no risk the whole trip because time shortage. Anyway the whole trip was great and I highly recommend to book it for anyone who is excited for Antelope canyon and Horsehod...

Our tour guide Danny was the best. He reminded us all the details for the trip and he pointed out all the scenic spots along the way. Danny's knowledge and experience greatly contributed to the joy of this visit to the Antelope Valley and the Horseshoe Bend.

Our tour guide Danny was very informative and very knowledgeable. He is also good at making jokes to make our trip enjoyable.Definitely recommend!

Ruben was an excellent tour guide, knowledgable about the area, taking us to some great spots. This was a great introduction to the Grand Canyon!
