We had an unforgettable experience to Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend. Our tour guide made our tour even more fun and educational! We’ve been to different countries and states and BRAD, our tour guide , is the best tour guide we’ve ever had!!! Like he knows everything and he makes the tour more enjoyable. We didn’t get bored on our way there and coming back because he told us everything about Sedona and flagstaff and Page. He is a keeper . Don’t let him go because he is an asset to this tour company. He needs promotion! Our daughters really like him too. Thank you Brad for a wonderful trip to Antelope!
