About Grand Canyon West Skywalk & West Rim
Grand Canyon Skywalk is one of the premier attractions of Grand Canyon West. This world-famous see-through bridge is a major draw for visitors who travel to the Grand Canyon’s West Rim. Grand Canyon Destinations can take you to the Skywalk and the West Rim. We also include optional Skywalk admission tickets before you arrive at the park as a convenience. That means a better use of your time, as you don’t have to stand in line to pay for tickets once you reach Grand Canyon West.
Make the Most of Your Time While Visiting Las Vegas
Save on time buying tickets by opting for our West Rim tour by luxury bus. We leave Las Vegas early in the morning at about 7:00 AM and return to Las Vegas around 5:30 PM. That means you get to explore Grand Canyon West and the famous Skywalk for over 4 hours before returning back to your Vegas hotel.
A Safer and More Pleasant Way to Travel
A trained travel guide will accompany you on your journey to answer questions and to provide facts and information about sites along the way as well as at your destination. While most tour companies use their driver to provide tours, we, at Grand Canyon Destinations, use the services of a driver and a trained guide. In turn, we provide a safer and more pleasant touring experience.
Drive Along Amazing Route 66
Traveling along Route 66 is an exciting activity all on its own. Known as the Main Street of America, Route 66 successfully connected the United States from Chicago to Los Angeles almost 100 years ago. Being one of the first highways across the country, this road holds an important place in America’s history. The Grand Canyon Caverns attraction is seated right off of Route 66. As you experience the drive, you will be able to feel the history and nostalgia that comes along with this historic trip.
First Stop- Grand Canyon Caverns
Every tour to the West Rim includes a brief visit to the Grand Canyon Caverns on the way. This one-hour stop allows you to take an optional 45-minute caverns tour, explore the grounds, and get your lunch. Taking a Grand Canyon Caverns tour is a simple way to make your canyon day tour memorable and exciting.
We are the only tour company in Vegas that includes a stop at the Grand Canyon Caverns on our excursions from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon. This attraction is the perfect addition to your Grand Canyon West adventure. The caverns have been open and drawing in visitors for nearly 100 years. You will experience the history of the caverns as you travel along the original road that connected the U.S.
The Amazing Grand Canyon Skywalk
Naturally, you don’t want to go to the West Rim without seeing the Skywalk Bridge. The Grand Canyon Skywalk, also known as the Grand Canyon glass walk or Grand Canyon glass bridge, is not at all breakable as the name suggests. In fact, this bridge is made to withstand earthquakes registering as high as 8.0 on the Richter scale and is fortified to stay intact if subjected to 100 mile-per-hour winds.
The glass platform of the bridge is made of a resilient and almost indestructible glass that can hold as many as 800 people weighing 200 pounds. However, only 120 visitors can walk over the platform at one time, so you don’t have to worry about the glass shattering beneath your feet. Instead, all you need to do is concentrate on the beautiful scenery around you and the amazing canyon below.
Planning Your Day’s Adventure
If you want to visit the Grand Canyon, but want to take less time traveling, you will want to plan a trip to the Skywalk at Grand Canyon West. Dependable Grand Canyon Destination drivers will pick you up for your day’s getaway. You will spend about 4.5 hours at the West Rim when you travel with us. Again, we start out about 7:00 AM in the morning and return around 5:30 PM in the evening from the west rim.
A Great Way to Explore the Southwest
You can plan one of various activities in this part of the US Southwest. In fact, vacationing in Las Vegas gives you the opportunity to visit some amazing canyons and parks. Located in Las Vegas is Red Rock Canyon which is a beautiful natural landscape enjoyed by the Vegas locals for hiking, biking, and climbing.
Have You Ever Been to Boulder City?
Another place of note in the area is Boulder City. This city was established in 1931, and served as the temporary home for the laborers who helped build the Hoover Dam. The city seems to be frozen-in-time with its neon lights and art décor designs. Grand Canyon Destinations can provide you with a customized travel experience if you want to make this destination part of your travel itinerary. You can visit the dam separately on a half day tour if you wish.
Buy Your Skywalk Tickets Before You Go
We take care of all the details – details that make buying tickets to the Skywalk attraction unnecessary once you reach your destination.
That is because we want you to make the most of your time, and therefore strive to provide a memorable and pleasant travel experience. Whether your canyon tour leads to the west canyon rim or directs you to the Colorado River, and the canyon floor, we are ready to make your travel dreams come true. It does not matter if you choose to see the glass bridge of the Grand Canyon Skywalk or choose to navigate the Colorado River, we are always ready to answer your tour needs.
Once more, if you choose to purchase our day tour package to the Skywalk, you can forego paying the entrance fee when you arrive. Again, we’ll include the tickets and their cost in your trip’s package if you choose. That way, you can walk over the glass walkway and its glass floor without distraction. You can merely enjoy the experience. Walking over the see-through platform will almost make you feel like you are walking on air.
Other Ways To Travel
Maybe you want to take a Grand Canyon helicopter tour or wish to plan a trip to Grand Canyon National Park? If so, just call us and we’ll give you further details about these trips and activities. While Skywalk tours are always exciting, some of our guests want to take a train via the Grand Canyon railway. This is an excellent way to see the Grand Canyon South Rim in the winter, or enjoy an old-time train experience any other time of year.
However, the train does not travel to Grand Canyon West and the Grand Canyon Skywalk. If you want to see the Skywalk, it is best to choose to go by one of the luxury buses provided by Grand Canyon Destinations. Indeed, you can get a lot of mileage by choosing Grand Canyon West’s activities. Seeing the Skywalk and Grand Canyon’s West Rim is an unforgettable journey, whether you elect to take a helicoper flight through one of the featured helicopter tours, or you opt for ground tours transport.
How about Horseback Riding?
You might also think about horseback riding near the Skywalk and the West Rim. Many people do not know that the Grand Canyon Skywalk and Grand Canyon West are separate from Grand Canyon National Park or the South Rim. These two places are distinctly different from one another.
While the West Rim is owned and operated by the Hualapai Indian tribe and is located on the Hualapai Indian reservation, the South Rim is part of land managed by the National Park Service. Therefore, these trips cover two different sites and have different itineraries.
If you wish to visit the Grand Canyon Skywalk, you will have more time to participate in the activities at the West Rim. This part of the canyon is closer to Las Vegas and a shorter travel time. Therefore, visitors who choose to see the Skywalk and Grand Canyon West spend less travel time on the road than visitors who journey to the South Rim and Grand Canyon National Park.
West Rim Tour Packages
If you do plan to travel to the Grand Canyon Skywalk, you may wonder about the price. The Hualapai provide a legacy package that you might want to consider. The Hualapai Legacy Package serves as a day pass to the tourist area of Grand Canyon West and the Hualapai Indian Reservation. The pass allows you to take the hop-on hop-off shuttle so you can save your energy for viewing the canyon and visiting the Grand Canyon Skywalk and other West Rim sites.
You can also upgrade your package by opting for a Legacy Gold day pass. This pass permits you to get a free meal as well. With either pass, you can access three viewpoints near the Grand Canyon Skywalk, including Eagle Point (which features a rock outcropping that resembles an eagle), Guano Point, (near a former guano mining operation), and Hualapai Ranch.
Grand Canyon Zipline
Your trip to the Grand Canyon Skywalk can also include a zip lining adventure, if you so choose. Zip lining is available from mid March to the end of October, so you may want to keep that in mind if you want to participate in the activity. If you want to stay longer than a day, you can always plan to stay at the Hualapai Lodge.
Is There Rafting At The West Rim?
There is an option to raft along the Colorado River at the West Rim. To do this, however, make sure you make your travel plans well in advance of your stay. If you wish to stay longer, you might also want to set up a river rafting adventure through the Hualapai River Runners. This activity will require more time than just a one-day tour.
What Do You Want to See?
Whether you want to obtain Legacy passes or want to know more about the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead, we can answer all your questions about any trip you would like to plan to Grand Canyon West and the Skywalk, Hoover Dam, or to one of Utah’s national parks.
To get acquainted, however, with the Grand Canyon Skywalk, you will need to book a day trip from Las Vegas if you plan to see this wonder of the world. Not only will Las Vegas provide you with plenty of amazing scenery, so will the nearby Grand Canyon Skywalk and Hoover Dam.
Choosing The Right Tour For You
However, before you book travel, to any canyon location, south or west rim, or the Grand Canyon Skywalk, you need to figure out what you would like to do on your day trip. Would you rather leave earlier in the morning and head toward Grand Canyon National Park? Or, would you rather spend less time on the bus and see the Grand Canyon Skywalk?
If you cannot imagine getting up around 5:00 AM to catch a bus to the Grand Canyon, you need to plan a trip to either the West Rim or take a short half-day trip to Hoover Dam. We start out on each of these trips a little later in the morning.
If you want to deal with less crowds, you should book travel with Grand Canyon Destinations to the West Rim. However, if you would like to experience more sights and viewpoints, you should make your canyon trip Grand Canyon National Park.
Break Away and See Some Amazing Natural Scenery
The Grand Canyon Skywalk a unique site in Arizona. In fact, you won’t find a tourist attraction like this one anywhere in the world. That is why taking a day trip by luxury bus to the Grand Canyon is such a unique escape. If you want to break away from the glitz and glam of Las Vegas for a while, this is the way to do it.
We provide trained tour guides who can entertain you with facts about the surrounding area and the sites you will see upon arrival. Should you visit the West Rim and the Grand Canyon Skywalk, you will also get to see what is left of an old guano mining operation as well as enjoy a meal at a restaurant at the Guano viewpoint.
Add a Variety of Interesting Sites and Activities
The Grand Canyon receives millions of visitors each year, and for good reason. It offers one-of-a-kind natural entertainment much in the same way that Vegas features an array of unique shows, lights, and attractions. By combining the two places on one itinerary, you can add interest and diversity to your touring plans.
To book travel, state when you want to take your trip. If you plan to take our luxury travel bus, we will stop by and pick you up near or at your hotel. While we pick up and take Grand Canyon visitors to the South Rim at around 6:00 AM in the morning, we start pick-up at 7:00 AM for anyone going to Grand Canyon West and the Grand Canyon Skywalk. Traveling back from the South Rim also takes longer, as guests arrive in Las Vegas after 5:30 PM.
