Arizona Highlights - Antelope Canyon and Lake Powell Flight with River Rafting

Spendy but worth it. Traveled with 14, 17 and 18 yr olds. They loved it! Not recommended for young children; too long of a day. Day started out with a 515am pick up from our hotel in the South Rim to the airport. Airport clean, well organized and in tip top shape. Pilots super professional. Beautiful scenic East Rim flyover to Page watching the sun rise. Pick up from the airport to the Navajo Nation was in open air trucks...bring scarves and eye protection as it is super dusty (and COLD!!! Our trip was in mid-October). Our Navajo guide Dee was amazing, knew all the nooks and crannies if the Canyon as well as all the proper camera techniques to get the best shots. Then on to the rafting trip down the Colorado with the starting point at the Glen Canyon Dam @ Lake Powell. Had to go thru security as the Dam is part of Homeland Security. The rafting trip is pretty long (3+ hrs) have to admit was getting pretty antsy by the end...but BEYOND beautiful: saw petroglyphs, wild horses and big horn sheep. Lunch was a Subway bag (turkey sandwich loaded w veggies, chips, fruit and a kind bar). Picked up at the end of the rafting trip by a clean modern bus that did a midway pitstop at the trading post in Cameron. All guides were professional, knowledgeable and passionate about the area. Coordination between legs of the trip involved some waiting but overall seemless. If you only have one day to see Northern AZ/Glen Canyon this is the way to do it!

We booked this tour as we had limited time in the Grand Canyon and it offered the chance to do a variety of activities. The plane ride is a great way to get a sense of scale of the Grand Canyon, though it was slightly windy the day we went so a bit bumpy.We found Antelope Canyon fascinating and our guide managed to help us get great pictures. I think we also got there at the right time as it wasn't too busy as we went through but when we were leaving it was getting very busy.After Antelope Canyon we were driven to the raft center to get our safety briefing and lunch. This was the only lull in the day as we were kept waiting for almost an hour. It was worth it though as the river rafting was worth it. Very relaxing and our tour guide River Dan was great with lots of interesting stories and facts.A long day but it was a great way to make the most of our time at the Grand Canyon.

What an amazing experience! It was soo beautiful! The guides pilot, truck driver/canyon guide, bus driver, raft driver were very knowledgeable. We learned so much about the history of the area and the power of wind and water. I highly recommend this trip!

We had the most amazing day! Started with a fantastic flight over the Grand Canyon and it was totally amazing seeing it from above : The plane was very small with 9 passengers so we all had a window seat to see the different areas of the canyon.We then went in large jeeps to the Antelope Caverns which are very narrow and small but the details of the rocks when the suns shines in is amazing. Our guide was fantastic and got us some amazing pics of the rocks.We then next went on a large raft for nearly 2hrs going down the amazing Colorado river! Gave you a different perspective of the canyon and the sheer height of the cliffs. Again we had a fantastic guide. There was a few stops along the way and where you could get off and go for a wander.We then headed to the bus waiting to pick us up at stopped a trading stop where you could purchase many items before the bus dropped people back off.A long day as was 12hrs but definitely worth it to see the amazing grand canyon :

Amazing full day trip! Our family of four had a rough start early morning3am since we needed to be at the Grand Canyon Airport at 5:30-6am and we were staying in Sedona, two and a half hours away. But it proved to be well worth it. After check in, they give everyone their breakfast box which really contained well thought out awesome food. Then off we go onto the plane! The Grand Canyon Navajo east end of canyon at daybreak was a wonderous thing to see. The pilot flew right over Horseshoe bend. Great photo ops! The left side of the plane is the place to sit if you can for the best photos. People sitting on the right side of the plane didn't even get to see Horseshoe bend. We flew over Glen Canyon dam as well -in the air about an hour-and landed at Page Arizona airport. From there a Navajo guide picked us up and transported our group to the entrance of Antelope Canyon. Antelope canyon is one thing you need to experience in your life. Beautiful! The walls, the light make for beautiful strange pictures. Use your iphone or android on chrome setting . Our guide showed us how to use the phone to take pictures worthy of National Geographic. My expensive camera didn't do half as well. The excursion gets you to Antelope canyon right at the start of the day which is awesome-way less people to get in the way. By the time our group left, a hundred people were lining up to go thru. After Antelope Canyon we were transported back to the rafting co. We were given our box lunches as we got on the bus and were taken through a 2 mile tunnel to the raft launch site near the base of Glen Canyon dam. After we loaded up, and met our guides, we proceeded s-l-o-w-l-y down the Colorado river. Lots of awesome rock formations and you also get to raft through Horseshoe bend since you flew over it first thing in the morning There are a couple of stops where you can swim in the 42 degree water if you wish there are also outhouses available The raft trip, my family felt, was about two hours too long. After the beautiful raft trip, we are all loaded onto buses to make the 3 1/2 hour journey back to the Grand Canyon airport. Its a beautiful drive and we did stop at Cameron Trading Co where they gave us only 30 min I was like a madwoman trying to grab things - -I love to shop. Back on board the bus, the driver put a great informative film on about river rafting the Colorado and we eventually got back to our car about 6pm. All in all, even though it was a long day, it was awesome and money well spent.

This tour gives you an incredible perspective of the Grand Canyon! From the birds eye view from the air to the beautiful Antelope Cavern to the float through the canyon on the usually calm Colorado River before the white water. A thunderstorm came up while on the river and while we were pelted with icy cold rain/hail and wind - enough so our guide had to beach the raft for safety - we later saw the rare waterfalls in the canyon at every turn!

This trip was truly the highlight of our Arizona vacation. The early morning flight over the canyon took our breath away. Antelope Canyon was amazing and the rafting trip was a delight. Our guides were all super friendly and helpful, especially Nate on our rafting trip- he kept us entertained all afternoon! Every detail is attended to from food and water to scheduled pick ups. I would recommend this trip to anyone who has a whole day available- you get to experience the canyons from all angles- truly a unique adventure!
