It was a long trip from Las Vegas but totally worth it! Denny the tourguide was very funny and gave a lot of information along the way, there were plenty of stops, and Horseshoe bend and Antelope canyon were incredibly beautiful! Highly recommended! Just 1 small thing: we went from our hotel (Treasure Island) to the meeting point (Luxor hotel) early in the morning with an uber. When we arrived there, it turned out that we first went to pick up people at....yes: Treasure island. I thought that was a shame because now we had to get up very early and I lost 30 dollars on the uber. But again, it's a beautiful drive and well worth it!

Irene was excellent! The trip was long but Irene made it fun and informative. She gave me tips that allowed me to bring home beautiful pictures to cherish forever.

Excellent professionally managed tour. Both Mike and Tom were very responsible and always ready to help out with anything.

Antelope canyon is breathtakingly beautiful, surreal. Never want to miss.

One of the best Trip with the best tour guide in Town- Irene!!
