We had a wonderful guide named Vangie. A experience we will never forget. Highly recommend this tour.
Ronald_H, Sept 2023
Our guide Van was entertaining and knowledgeable. Enjoyed the tour. He showed us all some great photography tips. We got some great pics.
A must see!
Jayme_M, Sept 2023
They have stairs to get to the bottom which helped a lot because my knees were tired from hiking all week! The views were stunning. Al did a great job answering all of our questions and giving us time to see everything!
Darrel_R, Sept 2023
Great experience, amazing visuals and our guide was very good. The only difficult part for some was the hike back up out of the canyon but they brought a dune buggy down to help them. Would recommend.
An absolute MUST see
Robin_K, Sept 2023
The experience was unlike any other. The views were spectacular and our guide was extremely knowledgeable and was so helpful with knowing all the best spots for photos and even taking pictures for our group.
Al was the greatest...
Janet_S, Sept 2023
Al was the greatest guide, he offered us the opportunity to view the canyon and answered our questions. He was informative and helpful. Be prepared to be in total awenesss.
Awe inspiring, intimate tour of Canyon X
Lucrecia_R, Sept 2023
Awesome experience! Marcos was a great tour guide, patiently allowing the group to take in the sites and get those perfect photo ops! He was very helpful, from pointing out many features of the canyons & explaining their 'story,' to helping take pics; thanks Marcos! Remember to keep schedule on the correct time zone; this area can be a bit confusing because it is so close to the Utah border, so depending on which cell tower your phone pings, it will randomly change the time on you. Also, don't confuse Canyon X tours with the first couple of Antelope Canyon tours that you'll see off the right side of the highway. Canyon X is 6 miles past the Upper Antelope Canyon tours, with the Mystical Antelope Canyon tours in between. Go around the bend in the highway to Canyon X.
Great experience, well...
Katherine_A, Aug 2023
Great experience, well worth your money! Quick tour but enough time to get a glimpse into the canyon.
Beautiful canyon without the crowds
Erin_R, Jul 2023
This was a great experience and less crowds but seemed a little disorganized and we did not get much information from our guide.
Always remember their tours in PST times!

The staff/guides were wonderful and the experience was amazing! 🤯
The photography opportunities was just as good as Antelope Canyon without the crowds.
By no means is this a second rate Canyon experience. It’s at least as good as Antelope Canyons.
Cardiac Canyon was amazing!!! As well as Canyon X
Shianne_D, Dec 2022
Awesome experience, not super crowded with controlled entry. Steep hike just at the beginning/end, but it’s so worth it
Great option to the Antelope canyon
Kyle_C, Nov 2022
The canyon X tour was a great alternative to the other antelope canyon tours. They drove us into the area for about five minutes and guided us down to walk both north and south side of the canyon X. Great experience and would be back again.

Very interesting. Pretty...
carol_z, Jul 2022
Very interesting. Pretty too. The guide was awesome Mia. I had difficulty getting back up the 60 plus steps to get out. They sat me in a Polaris 4 wheeler and hit me up safe and sound. They said it should not be a problem. But definitely stenuios for this 63 yr old
Brandin_C, Jul 2022
Terrible no idea there was a time zone change driving up from Sedona. Emailed guide hours before to let him know with no response at all not even after tour was done. We asked to have our tour rescheduled with no response. Hours later got a call and all we were told is you just lost all your money that's it no refund no rescheduling of tour. Extremely dispointed.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
