Advice for shooting Antelope Canyon

I was there a few years ago. I echo what was said about the "photo" tours. There were so many different tours, it got pretty crowded very quickly. I would contact whomever is taking you and take a tour at "optimum" time for the sun beams, but then go at some time that was not crowded at all (I was told late afternoon).

Without a tripod, you will battle for light, having image stabilization would be key. I used the 24-105 IS Mk 1, and it worked well, I got some great photos.

I would consider the EF 16-35 IS f/4 to be the ideal lens for the canyons. But, you can get great photos with either lens.
