    Pay back
    This is the closest part of the Grand Canyon from Vegas, so this is why we chose it. The views were great. The down side is that this is all on Native American reservation, and the Hualapai are running a for profit operation here. The skywalk is neat, but the scheme of confiscating all phones and cameras to go onto the skywalk sort of sucks. (just so the team of photographers have a monopoly over any and all photos that are available for sale at a high price). The entry fee also seems quite steep, as you would think a place like this should be a National park and very reasonable for families. The Guano point area is just as spectacular as the skywalk without any photo restrictions. Anyway, I get it, the tribe needs to generate revenue. They are all very nice, but could probably develop some different options to make money. All in all - it was a good experience. And when you read the history of the Hualapei (and know the past of all native Americans .. I guess we shouldn’t complain about paying them back.

    A Little Lower Than Our Expectation
    We travelled to Grand Canyon West by rental car. Note that the 'America The Beautiful' National Parks pass doesn't get you into this one. Once you park in the car park you pay the general admission fee that everyone has to pay regardless and added the Skywalk as an option. This works out cheaper than deciding to do the Skywalk later as separate cost is higher. After purchasing your admission and any combo you can jump on a free shuttle bus that loops to firstly Eagle Point where the Skywalk is located and then to Guano Point before coming back to the start point. We had been to the Grand Canyon before and done the helicopter ride down to the bottom and jumped in a boat on the river before helicoptering back up and that was awesome but as we hadn't done the Skywalk we thought we'd try it out this time. Maybe our expectations were set too high with the amazing surroundings and our previous experience but we ended up a little underwhelmed. It's still good but we just felt it would have been better if located somewhere slightly better. The view through the glass floor to the canyon bottom wasn't what we thought it would be and if they could have made it further out into the canyon it would have probably been better. There's only a slight window of the river off to the side but the surrounding walls are still good to see. The Skywalk is located at Eagle Point but in our opinion Guano Point is by far the best spot at the Grand Canyon. More expansive views that include the river and if possible a bit more impressive in general. Not sure why the Skywalk couldn't have been built there. Obviously reasons but if it was at Guano then could've been an incredible addition to an already unbelievable natural must see.

    Skywalk-worth doing!
    This was such an amazing experience! We had friends visiting from Denmark and one of the places they wanted to see was the Grand Canyon. We were there on a September afternoon and it was perfect timing. We had a small wait time before stepping onto the skywalk and it was incredible until you heard music playing rather loudly! Why would there be music playing when you come to see this magnificent marvel in nature. You want to hear the wind howling or birds soaring by. The music was so irritating and when we said something to the photographers one agreed with us and another ignored what we were saying. Each group is assigned a photographer to take pictures since you can’t take a camera or phone with you. The photographer we got, Kari, was not personable or seemed to care about us, her job or the end result which was very disappointing especially when there were other photographers who were much better. As far as the skywalk, it is definitely worth doing and such a cool experience. After the skywalk, you take a bus to Guano Point which was also incredible because you have a 360 degree view of the canyon plus the Colorado River. We climbed into some rocks and stayed until sunset enjoying the marvelous coloring from the sun setting. As the sun dipped below the horizon, the full moon rose over the Grand Canyon, absolutely breathtaking!

    Skip the Skywalk!
    Such a cash grab! So disappointed with the blatant attempts to squeeze you for every penny. The skywalk was ok but not worth the long lines and money. The only thing worth the trip was Guano Point where you were allowed to explore and see beautiful views autonomously. My advice to future travelers: just do general admission and skip the skywalk and Eagle Point all together. Go straight to Guano.

    Pictures do not do it justice.
    You are bussed up to the Sky Walk and then you get to stand in line. If you go in the summer months bring your own water. You can thank me later. Once you get inside to go out on the Sky Walk, you get to wear booties for your shoes. Once you are finally out there, it is definitely worth it all. The view is absolutely stunning. You have a problem with heights, this may not be for you. I needed to adjust to it but once I did, it was incredible. They do offer to take your picture which my friend and I did. We had some fun pictures with it. They do offer additional pictures of the Sky Walk in different weather conditions. We bought it. The grand total was only 50 USD. You get like 10-12 pictures of you and then additional 30 pictures of the Sky Walk to me it was worth it.

    Must do
    This is definitely a must do at the Western Rim. Our experience was very good, there was no line, just a few minutes of waiting. You have to wear provided covers over your shoes to protect the glass, and put all your belongings, including phones, into a locker. Views are thrilling, particularly on a nice clear fall day. It certainly is kind of a tourist trap, you cannot take your own pictures and so have to pay for professional picture package. The staff do a good job with throughput and photo taking and the pictures come out very nicely. Despite this aspect, it is still a very unique and fun experience. The glass under our feet was already a bit scratched, and we were told they have to replace it every few years. I would recommend the skywalk if you touring the Western Rim. If you can either overlook or embrace the commercial aspect, the views are marvelous and the experience breathtaking.

    Very nice plan and something different
    The plan was excellent, and the view during the drive to the park was breathtakingly beautiful. However, it's important to note that taking pictures on the Skywalk is prohibited as the company manages it. I suggest arriving early at the park to have plenty of time to complete the entire circuit.

    Yes, there are lines
    Yes, it’s overpriced. Yes, there are lines. Lines for the bus, lines for the skywalk, lines to reboard the bus. Yes I did pay for the photo package, like come on, they were cool photos. I already spent $149 USD, what’s another $50. Beautiful views. Second stop at guano point had better views. Was it overpriced yes, am I glad I experienced it, yes. I’m on vacation, everything is expensive nowadays.

    I visited on a say with small attendance. It was neat.
    I visited on a day when crowds were small. I believe that is why my review may not align with someone who visited on a busy day. Those first few steps out onto the skywalk are a bit eerie but that's the charm of it. Shuttle buses taking you to skywalk and another scenic point were full but wait times were short. Wait for skywalk was about 20 minutes. I enjoyed myself. You see enough of the canyon views and the Colorado river without having to go into the national park. This plus a breath taking helicopter ride over the canyon is a great way to see the canyon.

    Breathtaking views you feel so vulnerable. An unmissable experience.
    It's my second visit to the Grand Canyon having been back in 2004. A lot have changed there is now a sky walk experience. As I was visiting on an off peak period (December during a weekday) my review reflects my own experience. I note a lot of negative reviews however I did not experience any queues and I did turn up at 3.30pm just an hour before closing time. I did not book in advance (you may need to on a busier period). I drove to a car park where you go inside the store and purchase your tickets. At just under$70 for a general admission ticket not cheap. At this point you board upon a bus which takes you to the skywalk location (10 minute bus ride). At the site you can walk around and take in the sheer beauty and there are plenty of opportunities to take great pictures. With regards the Skywalk you go inside a building and you have to put your phone and any camera equipment you have in lockers. You then have to put on shoe covers and you can then walk onto the glass outside. It's a surreal experience you feel so vulnerable. I chose not to take any photo package but rather just wanted to enjoy the experience. Once done you can hop onto the bus and it will stop off at another site (Eagle Point). This for me was my favourite part you can climb a couple of rocky mini hills and you get the great vantage points and here you can take the best pictures and stay in the location without pressure. A word of caution no rope barriers here and I did see some foolish people trying to get a risky picture right on the edge. Please do not do this as rock can crumble and it can get windy. Overall a truly memorable experience.

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.

Strongly not recommend it!
It cost $32 per person, you cannot take pics and the funny thing is you won't be aware of it till you didn't almost end up with a very long queue. When you have already bought your tickets which are not so cheap! But at that time the second thing you discover is no personal items are allowed, so lockbox are ready for you to leave everything included your smartphones and the staff people care so much you left your smartphone because on the second line step there is a metal detector check as well as an airport. And you know why? The answer comes up right here at your third line step: you are not allowed to bring personal items because on the Skywalk there is someone take pictures of you. Figure out the trick :it's business!OMG why didn't we think about it before?? It should be so logical!!!!

qiyaq, We're very sorry about your disappointment in the pricing and photo policy. We do our best to communicate our prices and policies online and throughout the Ticket Terminal so guests can be aware prior to entry. We're sorry if we failed to properly communicate this to you ahead of time. We don't allow guests to take electronics onto the Skywalk to prevent items from being dropped onto the glass and to regulate the flow of traffic. We want to be sure everyone has sufficient time to take in the views and enjoy the experience.

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.

We visited here last week and had an amazing, once in a life time experience. Forget the reviewers who moan about the price. For $80 you can walk on the sky walk and visit 1 other vantage point and lunch is provided. There are regular coaches with pick up and drop off points at each stage. The skywalk is unbelievable - why would you miss it? The vistas are sensational and view down (1.2 miles straight down) will take your breath away. You really get to feel the size of the canyon. The cost of professional photos is $65 for digital copies which are downloaded from app. These are well worth it. If you don’t want to do the skywalk there’s plenty of opportunity to see the canyon and take your own photos. A ten minute coach trip will take you to the 2nd vantage point which is even better than the skywalk. A full 180 degree view of the canyon. There’s some excellent climbing opportunities too as well as a cafe which does an excellent (but simple) tasty lunch - we had chicken, mash and corn of the cob. There’s also a third stop at a fake cowboy town which is okay but needs more development but has plenty of potential.

Overall, this was a brilliant experience which delivered on a life time ambition to see the canyon. Highly recommended.

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!

The Grand Canyon is beautiful and a must see but I do not recommend seeing it at Grand Canyon West. The Skywalk and whole process of getting to the Skywalk is a tourist trap. Lots of waiting in lines to buy tickets, load shuttle buses and obtain food and drinks. The tickets, food and merchandise for sale are also very overpriced. I recommend visiting the Grand Canyon National Park (Grand Canyon South Rim) and skip this painful experience.

Visiting the skywalk has been on my list of things to do for a few years now. And recently given the chance, me and a friend drove over 3 hours to see it.

Upon reaching the visitor center to board the bus to take us to the skywalk, we were informed that under NO circumstances were personal cameras allowed on the trip, ro include cell phones and this ridiculousness was even extended to binoculars

This policy is not clearly expressed on any web site I could fund in advance of my trip. To add insult to injury, the promotional video being shown in the visitor center clearly showed people using their personal cameras on the skywalk.

Had I been properly informed about the ridiculous NO camera policy in advance I never would have come.

NO, I do not believe that "for reasons of public and or personal or environmental safety" play any acceptable reason for this ludicrous policy.

IMO what was once a national treasure has now become a national Rip Off. I left without spending or donating a cent.

This is located at the Eagles Nest stop at the West Rim. It costs $32 so ain’t cheap. The sky walk does give you a good view of the Grand Canyon but there are 10X better views for free at the Guana Cave stop.

It was pretty disorganized even when I was there in the off season. You have to queue to pay the ticket right where everyone is coming in the door. Some don’t realize the line is there and inadvertently cut the line. There is a so-so gift shop there as well but nothing else was open in the off season so no food.

You have to store everything in a locker and it was packed in there trying to get through. Again, not very organized and I can’t imagine how busy this is in the on season.

Then there’s the issue of no personal photos allowed. This is just over the top commercialism to me. Charge me $32 for this great view and then try to squeeze another bunch of money out of me to have someone else take my picture there. They force the issue even further by putting up fences everywhere but none spot when you first arrive to block the view.

Can you imagine if the Eiffel Tower or Empire State Building (or anyone else!) did this? For your money you basically get to look straight down into the canyon, which you get to do a whole lot of other points along the way.

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.

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.
