Hope you realize you are going to Grand Canyon West and that's not the same as Grand Canyon Park south rim or north rim. If you want to see the National Park you are not going to Hualapai Ranch.

Agreeing. Go to the Las Vegas NV forums and read the Top Questions on the right. The tour you're contemplating will NOT be taking you to the Grand Canyon NP.

You won't see Route 66 if you go to Grand Canyon West, as its nowhere near there.If you take a day tour to the real Grand Canyon at the National Park. I don't think they drive on R66 either, but stay on Interstate 40.

To see all you want, its best to rent a car and spend a night at the canyon.

Hualapai Ranch is on the so called west rim, on tribal land.

You have no idea what you are missing by passing up the national park. Be sure to bring plenty of cash if you visit the west rim. The skywalk will cost you about $100 per person after all the fees are paid.

You can actually use your own camera off to the side. On the Skywalk you can't. But they will sell you a picture for some rediculous amount of money.
