“Amazing views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

I have visited the Grand Canyon in the past, and this has by far been the best experience in terms of views.

You first must travel to the reservation parking lot via a partially unpaved road. This road however was under construction when I visited, so I would imagine that it would be completed sometime soon. Once at the reservation, you enter the facility/gift shop where you either purchase your tickets or pickup your pre-purchased tickets/packages. From there you are shuttled to the three different attraction areas that they have, the skywalk being one of them. You can get on/off the shuttle at any of the attractions as many times as you would like.

At the skywalk, you go into the building/gift shop where they have the attraction and proceed out to the skywalk itself. Once you are outside, you must put on these felt booties over your shoes before you can walk on the glass. This is done to protect the clarity of the glass. You also get a locker that you must put all of your items in as you are not allowed to bring cameras, cell phones, or basically anything that you would carry, as they do not want anything on the skywalk.

Once out on the skywalk, the floor and walls are all glass, and you can see perfectly through them. There is a professional photographer there to take photos of you and your group if you would like, and you get a ticket to bring inside where you can view and purchase the pictures if you want to. We just bought the thumb drive with all of the pictures on them, which cost about $80 if I remember correctly.

All in all, it was great and definitely worth it as the views were amazing and by far the best of all the grand canyon rims that I have visited.

“Gran Canyon Skywalk”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

Was looking forward to the Skywalk, but was dissapointed with the setup. It is extremely expensive to enter the Skywalk and you are not even allowed to bring your own camera on the skywalk, but you can buy the Photos they take of you. What a rip off, I asked why I couldn´t bring my own camera and got the answer that someone had dropped their camera on the glass floor and scratched it. I´m sure that is not the reason - they just want your Money. So we decided not to go out on the Skywalk. When that is said, the scenery along the edge and from the different Photo points, is amazing and truly fantastic.Remember to bring Water - Again it is expensive to buy out there.

“Expensive but worth it.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

My family went there on a Saturday afternoon. It was a crazy drive up the road but we made it. The Native Americans treated us GREAT, we had a great time. The skywalk was cool and to be able to sit on the edge of the canyon was awesome. We loved it although it was a bit pricey.

“Overrated and over priced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

We visited the Sky Walk today and were disappointed. The Canyon itself is amazing and a must see, however the Sky Walk isn't half as big as you would expect and in a really bad location as you can only see a small part of the Colorado river from it and the over hang isn't very big. You can't take your cameras with you and they try and sell you a photo for which they charge $30. You can get much better pictures of the Canyon yourself nearby. Definitely visit the Canyon as it's spectacular, just don't waste your money on the Sky Walk. The only good thing about it is to say that you have done it!

“shame on native americans”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

I was there a week ago. apart from grand canyon which of course is fantastic this whole place is just one big shame on native americans. They have ruined the place making it one big commercial rip off place for stupid and naive tourists. I have never seen such a disrespect to own history and land. The only thing which i missed were dream catchers that you can buy in local store with made in china signs. Skywalk itself is total failure and totally not worth over 20$. Shame on you Hualapai you disrespect yourself, your land and your history
