What people are saying about Lake Powell

I'm a solo traveler so taking up on a tour was no brainer. Saves you a lot of hassles. You can just sit back and relax while enjoying the scenery along the way. Co-exist tour driver Adam was great in everything. I had a couple of days delay in my flight because of holiday travels so I called up the tour company directly to make some changes on my tour schedule and they accommodated me with no questions. Finally, The Horseshoe Bend was pretty amazing and beautiful. There were lots of people on the overlooked side but I found a spot on the left side of the rim where very few people was around and took some amazing pictures. The Antelope Canyon X, I was beyond grateful for some of the mesmerizing views I have ever seen.

This tour packs in Lake Powell, Horseshoe Bend, and Lower Antelope Canyon from Las Vegas in one day so it’ll be a long trip but well worth it. You get one hour at Horseshoe Bend which is enough to take enough good photos. For Lower Antelope Canyon, the local Navajo guide will take you through the canyon and point out the sights and take photos for you. Lower Antelope Canyon is absolutely beautiful and should not be missed.

It was amazing! The tour guide Matt was amazing and so helpful during the trip. Not only that but the Navajo Viviana was so kind to show us her land in the Grand Canyon. They helped us see the most scenic areas in the Canyon. I was able to see horseshoe bend, Den Canyon Dam and ate at Gone West. I would definitely come back.

The trip was very enjoyable. The tour guide which also the driver was very friendly. He even put some time to stop by nearby tourism spots which were not included in the tour package just because we passed through it along the way. Really appreciate the tour guide.

It was a great experience. The Tour Guide/ Driver was very knowledgeable and made us comfortable and secured our safety.
