Antelope Valley Tickets (Classification, Ticketing Method)
Whether it is the upper or lower Antelope Canyon, the tickets are roughly divided into "Sightseeing Tour" and "Photography Tour". The former is attended by most people, which is the most basic one-hour tour in the park, general sightseeing.The latter is a photography group. In recent years, it has been suspended due to too many people. We will pay close attention to whether it will be held again in the future.
Since the upper antelope is more popular, the ticket for the upper antelope itself is about $95 to $110 more expensive than the lower antelope.For children's tickets, the upper antelope is charged adult fare no matter how old the child is (0-7); for the lower antelope, children aged 0-3 are free, 4-7 years old are child tickets, 8-12 Years old is a youth ticket, and there are discounts for both children and teenagers.
Ticket purchase method
There are different Indian merchants in the upper and lower antelopes who use different time periods to take their own guests into the park.
The following antelopes are examples.Dixie EllisAndKen's Tour. The group of two merchants arranged in two rows at the entrance of the lower antelope, and the group of wheels on both sides flowed into the park. Both merchants have their own official website and can book tickets, but because many travel agencies have already packaged most of their tickets, they often don't see bookable tickets on their websites.
There are more than two merchants on the upper antelope.Navajo Tours,Antelope Canyon ToursMainly. Since the upper antelope is too popular, the upper antelope tickets are mostly bought out, and it is very difficult to find a bookable time on the Internet.
