Grand Canyon Skywalk, Hualapai Reservation

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.

    The entrance to the skywalk can not buy it separately, you have acquire basic visits to villages around the 40USD hualapai package and add the sky walk by about 21 USD, so you pay around 60 USD per person. Once you enter the only skywalk authorised photographers take you photo can not be made, then you can buy each photo to 15 USD or USB with pictures by approx 35USD why I recommend you take many photos and buy USB so get you more avail. Do not get the printed photo framed with any memory of there but only on a transparent sheet. Pity! Why better USB

    Despite what some reviews have said we decided to drive from Las Vegas. The route was straightforward with good signage. The previous gravel road is now an excellent paved road, so with a few stops on...  more »

    Not ever you go! Access to the Canyon of the colorado you are forced to leave the car in the parking lot, get on a bus and leave you in the skywalk. There prohibit you enter with photo camera or mobile (metal detector) so you will have to pay them the photos. And doesn't impress nothing! You feel like a sheep after forcing you to pay $50.

    This place is awful, nonsense and overrated! Please, read reviews before going there, don't repeat my mistake! I was at the different part of Canyon last year and decided to go to Skywalk this year! It was such a mistake! First of all, the Canyon here is gray and ugly compared to the Grand Canyon South Rim (which is much-much more cheaper and absolutely beautiful!!) Skywalk will cost you $75-80 per person because you cannot go just to Skywalk you have to buy legacy package witch is $50! You want to make great pictures of Canyon and yourself from Skywalk? - forget about it! They make you leave everything in the locker, phones, cameras, even umbrellas!!! And will offer you to make a pictures of you by their photographer and then buy them for $60!! I'm furious I made such mistake!!! If you still wanna go there, better take helicopter tour, or much better don't go there! Drive straight to Grand Canyon National Park, pay something like $20 per car fee and enjoy stunning views, nice sidewalks, squirrels, trees and wild places to make perfectly beautiful pictures!!!

    FANTASTIC TIME! What is with all the negative reviews on here? They almost kept me away. I'm so glad they didn't. I went in June 2017 and had an amazing time. The views were spectacular, and I've been to the South Rim too! I liked this Rim equally as much. 2 different viewpoints, both beautiful. We also decided to do the Skywalk last minute, so glad we did! Breaktaking views 4,000 ft above the ground. A must do! All the staff and locals were friendly and helpful. The food was good. Authentic Native American jewelry for sale a nice touch at good prices. My entire group of 10 people aged 23 to age 55 all had a phenomenal time and will go back. Once in a lifetime.

    Worth the money. Be prepared to pay to see the Grand Canyon and to walk on the Skywalk. The food was ok at best but again, the experience is worth it. It's only a little over 2 hours from Vegas vs. 4 hours to the Park Service visitor's center. You can not take pictures on the Skywalk but they provide secure lockers at no additional cost. They also have photographers and offer different photo packages. You can take pictures anywhere else on the property. If you can afford it, I highly recommend it. We chose the $82 per person package that includes the Skywalk and meal.

    Scary but breathtaking. Do not go if you are remotely scared of heights. Great experience, even if you don't pay to have your photos taken. I don't recommend buying the whole package at the ticket office. If you are driving, you can visit the view points and the silly made up village independently having to pay only for the Skywalk. If you get the golden package, the shuttle bus will take you where you could have gone by car and the free meal included with it is REALLY disappointing!!! I ended up wasting my meal as it was not at all edible and in the end waited for 40 minutes to have something else. It did not diminish the magnitude of the experience but the extra money was not well spent.

    Not as expected. I brought 3 cameras. They will not let you take it to the glass bridge. If I new I would buy a different package. I am not interested in them photos for $60. Them website does mot say about cameras, at least I did not see it. This is not nice. The place amazing, but because of this I don't think I will come back
