Antelope Canyon X by Taadidiin Tours is by far the best slot canyon to visit in northern Arizona. You heard right, forget Upper and Lower Antelope Canyon. Although the Upper and Lower Canyons are beautiful, due to their popularity the experience is not nearly as magical as it was just a few years ago. Expect to pay exorbitant prices for tours that are overcrowded and shuffle you through the canyons like cattle. Finding peace and solitude in the canyons is non-existent. For the photography lovers out there, it’ll also be extremely difficult to take a decent photo without people in the way.
So, what do you do?

I am excited to share that there is another slot canyon in the area that is just as beautiful and photogenic, and even has the infamous light beam!
Introducing: Antelope Canyon X by Taadidiin Tours. I am so glad I toured with this canyon and tour company instead of the others. With Antelope Canyon X, I saved time, money, and more importantly, I was able to enjoy the canyons at my own pace. I received one-on-one attention from the guides, the canyons weren’t crowded, and I was able to take unique photos without being rushed. The tour guide even let us hang around the canyon an extra 30 minutes so we could see the light beam! Basically, everything about this tour was amazing and I give it a major thumb up.
My tour guide used to be a guide for the Upper Antelope Canyon. During our tour, he said the difference in the two tours is incomparable. Because of the other canyon’s popularity, the tours are often delayed by 45 minutes or more, and people have to wait outside in the hot Arizona heat for their tour to begin. Once again, I am sure happy I didn’t go with any other option.
