1. Antelope Canyon: Canyon X or Lower Antelope Entry Ticket
Get to know one of the three different slot canyons in Antelope Canyon. Select from the Upper Antelope, Lower Antelope, or Canyon X.
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 vac...
We enjoyed the Canyon X Tour. There were 13 people in our group and they only let one group in at a time so it was not crowded. The tour guides were very pleasant and interesting to talk with! Josh led us through the slot canyon and he was informative, easygoing, and was happy to take pictures of us.
2. Phoenix Zoo: One Day General Admission Ticket
Nestled on 125 acres within the beautiful Papago Park, the Phoenix Zoo is a wondrous place of curiosity, imagination, and discovery.

It was nice to see all the animals. I rented a power chair and rode around with out getting tired. I got to go around the whole zoo. I was dreading to go but I'm glad I did.

This was our first time in a small plane and so well worth it. We didn't know that in such a limited time what we were able to see. It was unbelievable and something I would recommend anyone to at least do once in their life. Our pilot Jack was very friendly and informative of the Canyon.

My husband and I booked this day trip from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon and we would highly recommend it. It was a very long day but worth it. We got picked up at 6:10am at a nearby hotel. This company was easy to communicate with. We all had to hand sanitize and get a temperature check before getting on the bus. Everyone was great about wearing their masks on the bus so we both felt safe in terms of COVID. There was a bathroom on the bus in case of emergencies but we stopped every 1-2hrs for either food or a restroom break. Lunch was a sandwich, chips and cookies but you could purchase food at several of the locations we stopped at. We picked up lunch very early (around 8:30am) so some people ate right away and others saved it.We had the option of a guided tour in the Grand Canyon (an extra $20 per person) but chose to go on our own. The path was very easy to follow ourselves. There was a free shuttle if you didn't want to walk. All in all, an excellent trip.

Depending on the weather, stop in either Mesquite, Nevada, or Hurricane, Utah, for an opportunity to stretch your legs, use the facilities, and grab coffee befor...
What a great trip! Anthony was an excellent driver/host. He communicated clearly, made scheduled stops for bathroom breaks/gas, and had phone chargers and cold water available. Horseshoe Bend is a self guided hike and amazingly our entire group returned at the designated meet time. We stopped for lunch at Subway prior to going to Antelope Canyon X. Once on the reservation, we met our guide for the canyon. It is a steep dusty hill (or stairs) down to the canyon entrance (and back up the hill) but the canyon is flat and easy walking which is good because you spend your time looking up in amazement!

The tour guide Robert was fantastic! without him we wouldn't have known anything about what we were seeing.I felt bad for our guide at the end.We were suppose to be back at 2:00.one man kept us waiting for 50 minutes.we all thought after 30 minutes Robert should have left him.But he was very calm and said he couldn't.
Our guide was very knowledgeable about the area we drove through on our way and about the Grand Canyon. Highly recommend this tour if you are only able to spend a day at the Grand Canyon
