    Don't bother and save the money.
    Wish I had read the reviews before purchasing the ticket. It is a money making attraction. The photographs are 65 dollars for 15. Would have purchased one or two for 10 dollars. Difficult to see through the glass floor as sun reflects. Does not go out into the canyon as I thought. If you are able go to the South Rim and save yourself money and get better views. Came away from West rim feeling I had been duped.

    Skywalk or cliff walk.
    The Skywalk is part of the Eagles Point Grand Canyon park. Seriously people. We found that it wasn't worth the time or money for the Skywalk. We lined up for half an hour, finally gained access to find that it was crowded, the views weren't any better than you got on the cliff sides of the Eagles Point. The glass bottom is not clear. The native photographers were constantly telling us to "get out the way, were trying to pose pictures!" Yes, you cannot take your own pictures on the Skywalk. Just skip it and wander the park and enjoy the views from the cliffs and enjoy the native culture.

    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.

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.

Was excited to go to the Skywalk but it was very underwhelming. Cost was high but could overlook that if the experience was amazing. Unfortunately it wasn’t. The wait to go onto the Skywalk was very long as were the bus lines. They also confiscated our cameras and go-pros so they could then offer us a $25 photo they took. Not a great experience. There was also a lack of education about the canyon itself and the native people. None of us left knowing much more than they came.

On a positive note, Guano point was spectacular and absolutely the highlight of the trip. Very suprised there were no safety measures in place. There are no safety fences etc and I watched terrified as many children went right to the edge. Horrifying!!!! It’s an accident waiting to happen.

All in all, if it wasn’t for Guano point I would be asking for a refund for the $700 it cost us for what was a very disappointing experience for all 8 of our group.

Everyone was very accommodating to us with handicap walkers. Our only serious problem was their lack of wifi access when we needed to show our prepaid passes located on our cell phone.

There are many things to point out and say about this experience. When we parked at the Grand Canyon west parking we went in and were shocked. The prices per person are at $80 just to go to the skywalk, you also have to pay for general admission which is $58 but it is just ridiculous that you have to pay that much just to go in. After paying this money making machine, you have to stand in a queue for the shuttle to take you to the eagle point view. I need to say the views are amazing but the torture is big and if you have a big family be prepared to pay a LOT of money. After that, you will walk over to the skywalk entrance where a massive queue is waiting for you. Don’t be fooled that the queue is only outside, it carries on inside as well. Before you go outside on the skywalk, they ask you to put your cell phones in a locker and you are not allowed to take any photographs on the skywalk just so they can make more money by having their own photographers take photographs if you want and make you pay $25 for one photo and much more for more photos. Then, you have to wait in another big queue so you can take the shuttle to go to Guana point or you can stay on the shuttle so it takes you straight back to the main area. Overall, the views are incredible but it is still unbelievable that you have to pay so much just to go and see a natural attraction. It should be accessible to everyone rich or not but if you are rich and patient then this is the place for you.

We attended this tourist trap where they wanted to charge 76USD, per person to go to the skywalk. The washrooms here were also disgusting and with all the revenue they are making, they obviously are not re-investing it in this dump.

As we were standing in the HUGE line up to get tickets , we tried to use their “free wifi” to look at other options. Their wifi did not work which is a part of the scam so that you don’t see the free scenic stops a little further down just past Meadview….where we spent the entire afternoon exploring the magnificent views along the roadway!

My wife and I, and our two long-time friends, all of us in our mid-sixties decided on arrival at the Grand Canyon with an organised coach trip to do the Sky Walk. We queued up for around half an hour to buy the tickets – it really was slow going. Some of it was down to visitors who couldn’t make their minds up, and some of it down to the staff who were getting involved with other ticket sellers’ problems, when I really think that they should have been trying to reduce the length of the long queue, and leaving the ticket seller with the problem to resolve it themselves. There were only a couple of ticket sellers on duty to try and deal with selling tickets to quite a large crowd of people. We only had a very limited time at the Grand Canyon, so queuing up for an extended period wasn’t the best utilisation of our time. Anyway, we already had General Admission tickets, so we had to pay another $33 per person for the Sky Walk. When we got to the front of the queue we obviously knew what we wanted and were hoping for a quick departure, but then the credit card machine would not accept any of four cards that we tried, all of which we knew were active with absolutely no problems from our end as we had used them constantly during our trip to the US (and many times after this occasion), so in the end, luckily for all concerned, we had enough cash to pay for the experience.

What we didn’t realise, as we had never been here before, was that we would now have to wait in another long queue for a bus to take us up to the Sky Walk. Time was ticking away and we had neither seen the Grand Canyon properly or even reached the Sky Walk. It took another half an hour before we got to the Sky Walk reception, and you’ve guessed it, another queue to wait to get in and drop all the prohibited items in a free locker. It’s at this point that we realised that we would not be able to take anything onto the Sky Walk to take photos, and that we would be beholding to the photographers onsite to get decent photos of our small group of four, but we also realised that the costs were mounting up, as we would have to pay for them as well.

After dropping everything off in the locker we joined yet another queue, but luckily we were soon outside on the Walk itself. To say that we were underwhelmed would be an understatement. Admittedly this was our first real view of the Grand Canyon, but was it really worth $33 per person – I really don’t think so. Apart from this you also pick up a photographer as soon as you walk onto the Sky Walk, and it’s obvious that he wants to hurry you along to take the few photos he is going to take of our small group, and then move onto more people, so we felt under a certain amount of pressure as soon as we walked onto the Walk. We found ourselves around at the exit door in no time at all – I think that we could have stayed out longer, but it felt so much like it was the end when the photographer took his last shot just before the exit door, and that you should just step off the walk and collect your belongings.

Of course we still had to pay for our photos yet. Then another problem to pile on the pressure of our short visit to the canyon, in that the wireless camera had not uploaded our photos onto the computer, so the girl had to get on the radio to request that the photographer come back in to unload them manually onto the PC. By now we were getting anxious that we were not going to have any time to see anything else of the canyon, and that we would have to go straight back to the coach. The photographer duly arrived and we were soon viewing our photos on the computer’s screen. We decided to pay $69 for the complete photo package, which we could all then download. Quite a bit of money for eight photos that you don't even get prints of, but it was the most reasonable option for us to purchase photos of this so called experience.

Now, do I think the Sky Walk was an exceptional experience or worth the money? I would have to say no to both of these questions. We had time to go outside and view the canyon from the areas around the building, and got some really good shots of our own. We also managed to scoot up to Guano Point and quickly take some photos there, so we all decided that the Sky Walk was a waste of our time and money, and hence I wouldn’t recommend this experience at all.

Annoying. I thought it was a waste of money until I got to the second stop. You couldn't take your own pictures. No cameras allowed. I wouldn't do the skywalk again. You can see the same scenery and take your own pictures at the next stop.
