Get to know Canyon X in Antelope Canyon with a guide.

Located southeast of Lower Antelope canyon by the gateway town of Page, Ari. This part of the canyon is chiseled out by millions of years' worth of flood erosion and impactful winds on its sandstone, enough to sculpt out the iconic "X" shape that aptly named the canyon.

Canyon X is a relatively new scenic tour and the lesser-known cousin of Upper/Lower Antelope Canyon, which results in fewer visitors by comparison to the other two.

Canyon X is a mixture of the characteristics of both the Upper and Lower canyon, with the Upper's feature of pillars of light and the Lower's steepness. Canyon X is also deeper than the other two and brings ample photo opportunities. It truly is a great vacation spot for photography as well.

The tour was awesome and far less expensive than the main Antelope Canyon. Our guide, Van, was amazing and took several very cool pictures and explained the formation of the canyon very well. Our group was about 12, a very manageable size. The only warning I have is that it is about 8 miles further down the highway than the main Antelope Canyon.

Our tour guide Bambi was great! She took plenty of nice pictures of us and took care of us during the tour. The canyon itself was breathtaking - truly beautiful and special, so the only thing is that we would have loved to hear more about the canyon, the Navajo tribe and the area - about the history, how it was made, how is it related to the Navajo tribe and what it means for them. Other than that it was a great tour!

My husband and I really enjoyed our tour at Canyon X. Vangie, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable; she knew where to take the best photos and took multiple shots of us. My only complaint with the overall experience was that we got asked to switch our tour time because the time slot we selected (and paid for) was supposedly full (there was no indication of this online). We accepted the switch, however didn’t receive replacement tickets. I had to contact them to confirm it wasn’t a scam. However, a couple days before the tour, we got a text message saying that we needed to be at the meeting site at our originally booked tour time. Because of this confusion, we ended up being there 1.5 hours early which was quite inconvenient. We also had to wear masks despite being outdoors which seemed a bit overkill. Despite all this, we still had an overall wonderful experience.
