    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.

Let’s look at the bigger picture here. This is a monumental rip off for gullible tourists. And the rating I gave is for the Skywalk experience only.

I was suckered in unaware and so this is an honest review. And whilst I am be honest, the Grand Canyon is on most peoples bucket list, and for good reason.

However, let’s look at the actual cost. First of all you have to get there and of course this differs per individual or group depending where you have come from. Then on top of this, when you are parked up it’s a staggering $52 U.S. per person for a two stop 10 minutes in total bus drive. Then if you want to do the Glass floor walk it’s a further $25 dollars. Then, when you get in they insist on taking your phone and/or camera from you so you are essentially banned from taking photo’s of YOUR memory.
They want you to spend at least a further $25 dollars on just ONE photo. Alternatively, $50 dollars for EIGHT photo’s. Where is the logic. I looked at some photo’s a group had taken and all eight photo’s were essentially the same.!!!!

You will be given a FREE locker (WOW!) to store your phone before you go through an airport type scanner.

Unbelievable right? NO, IT’S TRUE. At one point I counted more ‘official photographers on the glass floor than customers. And there was the so called 'security' who arebasically just jobs worths stopping you from taking photos. Stopping you from making memories. I got my phone through though and took some photo’s. An old boy ‘security guy ‘ demanded my phone from me and I refused. I told him it’s my personal possession . He demanded I hand over the phone and unlock it, I said no it’s my personal phone. He then demanded I erase the photo’s, I again said no, they are my personal photographs taken by me in a public place. He asked me again and again I refused. He asked me to leave, by which time I was at the end of the walk so no big deal. DO NOT BE INTIMIDATED BY THESE ‘SECURITY’ JOBSWORTHS.
Regarding the view, it’s certainly no better on the glass walkway than it is before you enter the building. Totally honest about this. The second 5 minute bus journey further round the canyon offers mush more spectacular views.

Back to the cost, so $52 x 25 (average number) people on the bus = $1300 .

Three buses every 20 minutes is equal to around $3900 per hour. Is gas/petrol really that expensive in the USA? I DON’T THINK SO.

Let’s say they run this for 8 hours in the day on average and this equates to $31200 per day.

And for arguments sake this is around $11,388,000 per year.
Even taking wages into account for the staff this is a monumental rip off to the tourist trade.

And don’t forget the overpriced tee shirt if you buy one and get one 50% off. The American retailers love this so called ‘offer’.

HAVE A GREAT DAY AND DON’T GET RIPPED OFF.

We were in a little bit of a hurry when we got there. We knew that and we thought we would get past the entry queue and get on the bridge. After we left everything in the locker (which by the way is really scummy since the ticket already costs so much and we have to pay more for the photo), we found out there is a very long queue to actually get on the bridge which was hidden by a wall. There were people on the bridge just talking that we had seen 20 minutes prior still there. Of course the staff doesn’t care about that. When we asked the staff if we could go in front because we were in a now huge hurry, they acted like robots. It felt like they had a script they couldn’t go over by one single word. When we asked to get our phones to figure things out, they wouldn’t let us unless we left for good. We left, and it turned out we couldn’t get a refund, because all sales are final. Poor management and scummy business tactics.

There’s no doubt the views from this part of the Grand Canyon are spectacular. However, the experience around the skywalk just feels like a rip-off. Upon arrival you need to put all your belongings, including phones and cameras in a locker. You are not allowed to take your own photos. Instead you have to have the official photographers take photos of you on the skywalk - for US$55! What a joke. Once you’ve donned the mandatory shoe covers, you wait off the skywalk in a queue, so the aforementioned photographers take photos of those who have been granted access. After finally being allowed on the walk, it was an interesting to see the ground 4000 feet below, but really - you can see the same views from directly next to the skywalk.
Save your money.

A bit remote but worth the effort. Frequency of bus transport was good. Having to put your stuff in a locker was annoying. Long wait to get on the Skywalk. The photo thing is not worth it. If you want to do a helicopter tour sign up early as they sell out quick. View of the Canyon was stunning!

The view was beautiful as I expected. The problem I had was the photography scam the having going. You have to place everything in a locker before you go out on skywalk including your phone. Once on the skywalk you are approached by one of several camera men/women. Ours literally was joking & playing around so much we didn't really feel like he was worried about taking our photo. This took away greatly from our experience.
Afterwards you enter a room where your pics are displayed. Get this you get ONE picture for $25 or all (7) for $50. For this price you think you get all rights to your pictures right? Well no they put their logo on every photo. Also photos are mediocre photos at best!
Included in our ticket was lunch which we decided to do in restaurant above skywalk. The food was good, staff was very nice & view was spectacular. My pics of skywalk I included with the review are from the restaraunt.

This is nothing but a tourist trap. $71 for essentially tiny walking/viewing area. No phone allowed. $25 for single photo from their "professional" photographer with the skill of a 10yr old. With absolutely nothing else around, totally not worth the trip here.

Almost perfect..... The employees there need to be addressed. Apparently there is a on going thing they share... the cow joke.. " watch out for the cows.... they don't move. They are talking about they paying costumers. This was said many times while we were there. But when it was said to a autistic woman struggling to come down the stairs of the shuttle. That was uncalled for! It was rude and embarrassing for her. The shuttle driver is really lucky that I was the only one that knew that was said and why. The man at the sky walk scanning the tickets is also just as lucky.

The view is magnificent! The rest of the skywalk isn’t worth it. There’s not much choice when it comes to the food. Also, clean the glass floor and get a better photographer, or maybe better to not have any. I’m not impressed at all.

What’s good? Two hours drive from Vegas. Beautiful views, especially Guano Point at the second bus stop, clean restrooms, fantastic bus drivers and staff, and cheap post cards.

What’s not good?
The price of the skywalk. It wasn’t worth the time or money. You’re not allowed to use your own camera or phone on the skywalk. Not very handicap accessible.

Absolute tourist trap. No own cameras or cellphones allowed on the skywalk. Could buy foto’s for way to much money. Especially since you already pay a very steep entry fee. Shuttle buses took ages.
