What people are saying about Horseshoe Bend

One of the best tours ever. Incredible to walk through the slot canyons. Far exceeded any expectations I had of the beauty of this canyon. Was truly a natural wonder of the world. This tour also stopped at Horseshoe Bend which was an added plus. We originally planned to go on our own, but glad we had a tour guide to get us there. Except for the extremely long 4+ hour ride to and from Las Vegas, the tour was perfect. We were exhausted just sitting in the minivan. No way we could have driven it ourselves in one day.

You won't regret taking this tour. Horseshoe Bend was beautiful to see, and walking through Antelope Canyon was an unreal experience. Janelle was a fantastic guide, as was Tony, who took us on our Antelope Canyon tour.

Our trip to horse shoe bend and antelope canyon with Janelle was outstanding! Highly recommend this excursion and hopefully you’ll get Janelle as your guide.

Matt was the best. This tour is a must, even for locals from the state. Pay the money and enjoy yourselves. You wont regret it.

We had a great time. Our tour guide, Andrew was amazing and knew so much about each stop.
