Grand Canyon Skywalk, Hualapai Reservation
(2.3/5 based on 3,400+ reviews on the web)
Grand Canyon Skywalk--a transparent, horseshoe-shaped platform that extends over the edge of the Grand Canyon--is not for the faint of heart. Walk out and gaze down 1,000 m (3,500 ft) to see the Colorado River rushing below. This feat of modern engineering is part of the Hualapai Indian reservation; it was commissioned by and is owned by tribe. You must pay a fee to enter the reservation, plus an additional fee to go out on the platform. Personal items, including cameras, are not permitted on the Skywalk, but you can purchase a professional photograph of your visit from the gift shop. Make Grand Canyon Skywalk part of your personalized Meadview itinerary using our Meadview trip generator.

  • In terms of the natural beauty of the Grand Canyon it's a five out of five. Just stunning. In terms of the cost and facilities it's a one out of five. As mentioned by others. You HAVE to pay through the nose to progress from the public car park to the canyon itself. The layout and organisation are both of a very poor standard. Staff aren't exactly helpful and you definitely feel exploited. Having said that, the views are amazing. For two people it was worth it as a one off experience. I'll always fondly remember the amazing Grand Canyon but I'll try to forget the staff, facilities and prices as quickly as possible.
  • We are very disappointed because it was not possible simply to walk to the Grand Canyon. You must pay around 70 bugs for a 2 hours bus-tour trough the Reservat. There was no other way no trail only this expensive tour. In our opinion to expensive. Our tip! Save your money and go to a other spot around the Grand Canyon. There are a lot of other amazing spots! For free!
  • Great place to visit and the views are amazing however i do not see much point in going on the Skywalk. You are not able to take your camera on the platform and have to pay for photos to be taken of you. We did not pay extra for the skywalk and just went around the edge of the canyon which was just amazing and well worth it. The operators of the park do a great job in looking after all the guests and making everyone feel very welcome.
  • I was in Vegas with the family. Great trip. Everything around here is pricey, but the Hualapai have done a great job. We did the whole thing, including helicopter and boat ride, what a treat and the vistas are amazing. I will plan another trip to the National Park but from Vegas this was a great one day family adventure.
  • 1 of the most amazing vacations I've been on. I can get upset with the rules and prices. It wouldn't make a difference it's how people make money. The place was breathtaking!
