Overall rating: 

The only reason this don't get 5 stars is the ridiculous crowds. It's worth paying for the photo tour as they'll help keep people out of the way for shots, although I've heard even that's getting harder.

Amazing

My dad and I did the double-time tour when we went and it was definitely worth it (and needed). This was one of my favorite parts of our Southwest trip! Highly recommend taking the time and money to make this happen.

The colors are outrageous

And they change with the light of the day. Definitely a photographer's dream. One recommendation - try to go early in the morning or be part of the first tour group - that way you see it in a space of solitude before others start trickling in behind you.
