So I am terrified of heights. The very idea of walking out on a glass skywalk was unimaginable for me but DO IT. They are genius in that they make you lock up all belongings including phones and cameras. Then they offer you a private photographer to catch the shots for you and it helps tremendously by keeping your attention away from the fact that you are over 4000 feet in the air. It is so beautiful. We went on a random weekday and it wasn't too crowded. It is a little pricey and once you are in there be prepared to pay in premium if you want to eat. The Guano Point was the best of the two stops. We did not see any wildlife that day and the river was quite muddy but it is definitely 100% something I would do again and again.

My wife and I recently visited GC West and the Skywalk. If travelling by car, when you first arrive the area you'll be directed to a main parking area. From there you'll head into the large tent and purchase your access tickets and Skywalk pass if you want that too. After that, you'll need to wait in line to board a shuttle bus that takes you the rest of the way up. First stop is Eagle point; views are ok in my opinion. This is also where the Skywalk is. My wife and I chose to do it, here's how it went.....First, we waited in line for roughly 45 minutes outside, then after we got into the building we waited another 30 minutes. Then we were directed to a room where we need to remove all personal belongings and put them in a locker. After that, through a metal detector and from that point you can either head out onto the Skywalk, or wait in another line for a photographer to become available. Once a photographer comes to get you, he/she walks you around the Skywalk for 8 pictures, after which you're welcome to wander around the Skywalk as long as you want. Pictures are available for purchase for $22 each, or $65 for all 8. NOTE - you don't walk away with pictures in-hand, instead you get a receipt with a QR code on it to access your pictures after 24 hrs. From that point we went to the shuttle bus and waited to board for the next viewing location, Guano Point. Guano Point is easily 10 times better views than Eagle Point and in our opinion definitely worth the trip. After we got home from our trip, we looked at the Skywalk photos, and honestly we feel a bit ripped off. The photographer zoomed in when he took our pictures, so now you can't even tell that we're on the Skywalk.

In summary, it's a good day trip from Las Vegas and we were happy we did it. in retrospect however, paying the cost to walk on the Skywalk, and paying additional for photographs, we felt wasn't worth it and a bit of a rip-off. That said, Guano Point made it worthwhile.

First time catching the bus, which didn’t have a line, as reviews warned, but we were there on a Monday, Oct 4th at 11:00a. My husband has never been to the Skywalk it wasn’t built when he was last on the East Rim / Eagles Point. So with all my information and reading the reviews he still wanted to go out and experience it. So we spent the extra money and waited in a long line (from inside entrance doors long), could only use lockers on right side for some reason, did not get in the line for photos and stepped out. He said he expected the skywalk to extend a lot further outwards then it did. We spent probably 5 - 8 min out there before just going to the side and viewing the Grand Canyon where you can take your own pictures, which we did. He did say, he was glad he did it, bc he always wondered about it, but would definitely encourage others that it isn’t worth the money. Eagles Point is the only view I had previously seen when I had been to the GC, he kept saying how that isn’t a view bc of the wall (Eagles Point), that stood in your view. We then went to Guano Point which was amazing and worth the bus trip. I was scared, I won’t lie, there is nothing keeping you from falling off the edge. People were sitting and standing so close that I couldn’t watch. I did then understand though, what my husband was saying about the view of the GC and being able to see the Colorado River. We were also suppose to go to the Hualapai Indian Reservation, but was not told until we were on the bus that it was closed and we wouldn’t be going there, though the ticket price didn’t show the discount for a shorter trip (total trip for bus and skywalk was like $128. For two - I forget exact price). So from Guano, we were taken back to our vehicles. Sure couldn’t just get off the bus to walk to your car, it’s blocked off making you go through their gift shop. Oh, there are Indians at Guano selling jewelry while you wait for the bus, but they don’t push anything on you.
Overall, glad we did it, but next time will helicopter in as we each had done separately in previous years.

I would not recommend the skywalk, as it felt like we waited in lines the whole time and had to pay a fee every 2 minutes. The kicker was when we finally got to the skywalk it self and they told us we couldn't bring our phones or take photos. But they happened to have photographers at $22 per photo. ( My brother went to the South Rim a week or two before and had a wonderful time. Prettier, not commercialized or a money drain.) - The deal with the phones had many of the folks in line feeling like they were snookered. The guy working there said it was for liability., and the phone deal was in the brochure. Must have been really small print, cuz nobody had seen it.

We drove from Las Vegas, stopping at Hoover Dam in our way. Use Google Maps and you will get there flawlessly. Return trip to Vegas was barely 2 hour long.
Cost is around $80 per person. This includes a 5 minute bus ride to the Skywalk area, the Skywalk ticket and a fast food lunch.
Views of the canyon were not as expected, as you are at the same level as the mountains in front of you, plus you can’t see the river beneath. Therefore there is no depth or height sensation.
Lines to go out to the Skywalk are over 45 minutes and you need to get in the line before 3:00pm for acceptable picture light.
You will NOT be allowed to bring cell phones to the Skywalk, so pictures depend on the local photographers. Make all photographers take as many pictures of you as possible and then buy the whole package. One picture is $22, but ALL pictures they take you plus a set of 20 panoramic pictures of the area cost $50 bucks. It’s a much better deal.
Lunch is good (hamburger, chicken tenders o sandwich) but if you want to sit by the panoramic window you’ll need to wait around 30 min, but it is worth it.
If you still want to get there, I saved around $50 purchasing the Grander Package for 4 persons in Vegas.com instead of purchasing at the Canyon or in their website. But there are other locations from where you can better appreciate the magnitude and beauty of the Grand Canyon.

My husband and I visited for our 25th anniversary and it will be the only time we will have that opportunity. We didn’t plan to go on the skywalk but decided that since we wanted some great photos for memories we would splurge. It cost $57 and we waited an hour in the photo line. The digital pictures cost an additional $50. A couple of days later I tried to retrieve the digital photos and could not. When I emailed the company they told me there had been some “technical difficulties” and my photos were lost. They asked me to send a copy of my credit card front and back via email for a refund. I refused because that is unsafe and I advised them to mail me a check for not just the photos but also the admission cost. I am not sure why but they refused to send me a refund check! Maybe they don’t know how to write a check. After going back and forth via email several times they just stopped replying and ignored me for a full month until I called to speak with someone. They took my credit card number over the phone and refunded just the $50 photo cost. I’m going to call my bank to see if they will also stop the admission cost charge as we would not have done that were it not for the photos. The employee I spoke to was rude and made excuses: “this has never happened before!” I would never do this again, these people are not trustworthy. Feels like a scam.

The Skywalk is fabulous and a must-do if seeing the Grand Canyon. It's not scary at all, and the view is spectacular. We decided to have the professional photographer take our picture since no cell phones allowed on the Skykwalk, and we were glad that we did. We also bought a package deal of our photos, plus 20 professional photos of the Skywalk for $50, and it was worth it.

Please note that it's must cooler at the Skywalk than in Las Vegas, so dress warm.

Skywalk is not close the the South Rim, about 4 hours drive away. We flew into Las Vegas, drove 2 hours to Skywalk (did the admission, Skykwalk, and meal deal). You arrive at the gift shop and shuttle bus to the Skywalk, have a nice meal at the view restaurant, and later hop on the bus to Guano Point. Take time to browse the gift shop as they have lot of wonderful souvenirs. We then drove to the South Rim, which took 4 hours.

If we did this again, we would consider staying overnight near the West Rim (maybe Peach Springs), and then drive 2 hours to the South Rim next morning.

Thought I did my research before I went but I must of missed a few things. They stop you a few miles before the site to make you wait in a real long, slow moving line to but tickets. We asked the people working at the check out counter what the price was for just the bus ride to the location. Every single one of them turned there head away or looked down and said they didn't know the price. One guy said it changed every day! They wanted you to wait in line and figure after all that time you would just pay the price. About 54? a person just to ride out to the walkway and another 28 if you want to walk on it. No pictures allowed at all if you go. They won't even stop the bus for you to take pictures along the way. Did not go out there but I can't imagine the view is any better or different than the East side of the Canyon where you can stop and take pictures.
I feel bad because I think the idea started with good intentions but has turned into a total scam, not sure they will be around much longer once the word gets out.

OK, where to start. the drive to get there is 30 mph through the reservation it takes over an hour. then when you can finally see your goal you get stopped. then you have to park. so dont be fooled by the $20 price to walk on the glass. what a joke! bait and switch. so its 20 to "walk" but they dont tell you until you get to the counter that you have to pay $60 per person to ride there bus to get to the location. then you have to stand in line for an hour or longer looking at there artifacts and the history of how the white man took everything from them. once you get to the glass walk you have to go through metal detector because NO items are allowed NO cameras of any kind! so then you have to pay more money for pics. oh ya and when your trying to leave theres indians trying to get you to spend more money giving there sob story. stay away! go to the grand canyon by flag staff its way more beatiful and its FREE!

Awful scam. You pay to get in and wait for an hour in a que. Thats where you find out that you cannot take your phone on camera onto the glass skywalk and if you want any photos you need to buy the ones they take.

The photos are $25 each for a digital download. No printouts.

We asked why this was the case and were very rudely told "if you go to disney you need to pay for the photos we are a buisness". In disney you can take photos on your phone. Once i pointed this out the person serving us literally FLIPPED the price list and eas giving us all the photos for $50. Thats 15 photos for 50 dollars compared to $25 each.

I will be spending the rest of my visit flipping this sheet when someone is being served untill I am kicked out.
