No, Tribal law requires that ALL people be guided down. People have been caught vandalizing the canyon (writing and climbing the canyon walls). To discourage this, everyone must go down with a guide. I am sorry, but we no longer do Photo Pass, EVERYONE goes down with a guide now. It has changed to PHOTOGRAPHERS TOUR.
Since we are located next to the canyon site, we do not have a physical address. Please follow the directions given. Go 2 miles East of Page AZ on highway 98. On the north side of the Hwy you will see a road, Antelope Point Rd. (N22B). The entrance to Upper Antelope Canyon is on the South side of the Hwy (directly across). Take Antelope Point Rd ¼ mile and on the left hand side you will see our building with a big sign that reads “Ken’s Tour”. There is a Gravel Rd that leads to the building.
Yes, many of our guest have been children of all ages. We just stress to the parents to watch them very closely. If you have baby, we recommend the parents come with a marsupial carrier (Front Carrier). The back pack carriers are not recommended as it is a tight fit in some places and parents have been known to accidently hit the child against the canyon wall. So Marsupial carrier will help eliminate any accident.
The canyon is Narrow at some sections and uneven paths throughout the canyon. We have 3 different 25ft step ladders (with hand rails) in the canyon. The entrance is a 3 story stair-well that goes into the canyon. We do not recommend the hike if you are scared of heights or enclosed spaces.
The canyon is photogenic throughout the whole day, as we get more light throughout the day. So there is no bad time to get into the canyon. We don’t offer peak times or prime times, it’s the same price throughout the day. Popular Times are from 9am – 3pm.
No, Upper Antelope is 5 miles away from our canyon and is formed above ground into a ridge (with a A-shape frame). For Lower, it is below ground and is about 3 times the length than upper (with a V-shape frame).
