    Traveller Tips

    Note you can't take your camera or camera phone on the skywalk, they take and sell professional photos only.
    Plenty to see from the sides of the skywalk basically looking over the cliff - do not fall over it is easy to do so there are no railings.
    It is worth visiting it should you want to experience a glass bottom walk, but it does not offer any additional views over the canyon.

    Great Experience
    Angeliss_S, Jan 2023
    Had an amazing time. Our bus tour with Gia and Grant was great. The view was beautiful. I would recommend Windstar bus package to anyone wishing to visit the Grand Canyon.
    Excellent day trip!
    Joy_F, Jan 2023
    Our tour guide Jamie was wonderful. She was knowledgeable, organized, friendly and great!
    Not a real 'tour'. Hard selling and markups for tickets ($35 for skywalk instead of $28 at the gate).
    Kevin_D, Jan 2023
    The end location is great but the tour wasn't. The tour guide didn't really give us any information about where we were and played random movies on in the van that we were downgraded to. Not only that, we were subject to a hard sell the entire trip from the tour guide first for a walking tour, skywalk tickets and then for dinner. She kept putting on time pressure for the walking tour, asking us probably 10 times whether we wanted to buy. It was $20USD per person and not worth it - they ended up being rushed and left at the last spot for too long. She also told us we couldn't buy skywalk tickets at the gate which was untrue. She then charged $35 for a ticket when it's $26+tax (~$28) and you can buy it yourself. She literally got off the van with us and bought the tickets at the gate herself. Also, don't forget that you already have admission and the prices on the website are with admission. You can ring them up to check the prices because I couldn't find them listed. Bought it myself when we got there. At Hoover Dam, we weren't allowed to walk it and instead she rushed us to an affiliate restaurant even though no one wanted to eat dinner. One of the other passengers asked why we had to stop if no one wanted to and she hesitated to tell us, probably because they'd rather it seem independent, and kept asking everyone if they wanted dinner multiple times as a group then individually. We were forced to stop there for 20 mins for literally nothing. We still tipped $10USD per person at the end because she sent a flyer around the van with that number on it, but honestly it wasn't worth it. If you just need transport, this is fine, but if you were looking for an actual tour, this is not it.

    Hello, Thank you for contacting us regarding your tour. We are happy that you had the opportunity to experience the Grand Canyon. We are sorry your tour did not meet your expectations. We are a very small family-owned business and we try to provide the best tours at the lowest cost and our goal is to make sure everyone enjoys our tour. Please accept our sincere apologies if you feel that our tour guide did not communicate effectively. We are continuously working with our staff on how to handle different types of situations. When you purchase the walking tour guide, you not only get an in-depth shared knowledge of the canyon but also beautiful pictures are taken by your tour guide to create lasting memories of your Grand Canyon tour. The walking tour is totally optional and is offered way in advance before getting to the park. If you book the tickets to the Skywalk with us you do not have to wait for the large line of people waiting to buy them at the West Rim. Our website does states that the West Rim tour includes a free Photo Stop at The Hoover Dam – it is not a full Hoover Dam tour. As for the dinner stop, this is a convenient stop for the passengers and the driver to get something to eat, drink or use the restroom. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. We will surely take note of the events that occurred on your tour and address them to improve our services. Thank you, Tour Orders Customer Service 702-833-1071 (Main) 866-717-8687 (Toll Free)

    The View of course. Leyla the guide is amazing. Driver is very skilled and you feel safe even at the Hoover Dam Cliffs.
    Our tour was disaster with this tour company, not recommended.
    Rajesh_D, Jan 2023
    I will not recommend any one of my contacts to use this tour company as it was a disaster. The tour was not planned properly by the tour guide and that messed up the whole tour. The Grand Canyon tour guide was cancelled at the last moment, and I still need refund ($80.00 - $20/person for 4 people) which I didn't get yet. The Hoover Dam visit was just a waste as that was done on really dark evening and couldn't see much plus the visit was just from far site and not enough time spent. I have sent a request for my $80 refund with receipt attached to the tour contact person but so far, no response. Overall, it wasn't worth spending money with this tour company.

    Great experience would recommend for families. The tour guide was great. The bus ride was great and comfortable
    Michael_V, Dec 2022
    Although we booked for a pick up from our hotel , viator in an arrogant way said that they set up the pick up points. If this is the case , why did they have a pick up option from Aria hotel ?
    Response from Host, Dec 2022

    Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam day tour
    Ruta_R, Dec 2022
    Great tour! Highly recommend! Skywalk is very impressive! Need to experience! Wonderful nature creation! Grand Canyon is breathtaking! Very impressed with Hoover Dam! Must see! Excellent experience for the whole day!!!
    Well spent day 👍🏻
    AFRAH_A, Dec 2022
    The tour was for almost full day (+12 hours) but in my opinion it could be reduced by saving more time in providing requested meals before tour starts instead of wasting more than one hour picking up meals which was annoying in early morning & that also includes dinner at end of the tour. On the other hand the tur Guide Mrs. Giya she was super friendly , knowledgeable and fun. She made the long ride to the Grand Canyon easy and less boring .. this tour attraction is a must when you’re in Las Vegas 👍🏻
    Response from Host, Dec 2022

    We had a great time with our tour guide Gia she did a wonderful job. The helicopter ride was so worth it .

    EliL_G, Nov 2022
    Leyla and Nelso are the best, we really enjoyed the tour, we upgraded to the tour guide and was the best decision. Leyla was wonderful
    Worth it!
    Mohammed_A, Nov 2022
    Good: It was an awesome Experience. Jia was awesome as a Tour Guide and Managing whole experience. She took awesome photos and made it so personal. It was fun time. Good veggie option with hummus wrap. It was tasty. Low points: Michael was a good driver but bit slow in driving. At this price, $20 each for personal guide tour and staying in own Bus for point to point should be included. Non-buying people should be allowed to buy food/coffee from place where prepaid breakfast/Dinner are picked up.
    Brett_G, Nov 2022
    Was supposed to be included in trip. I was charged an additional $110 on my bud ride. Website should be more clear as to what is included.
    Response from Host, Nov 2022
    Hello. Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're sorry to learn that you got confused with what's included in your tour. Please know that it is stated on the website that the skywalk ticket and the guided walking tour are optional only and are not included in your bus tour ticket unless purchased upon booking. We appreciate you for choosing us for your Grand Canyon experience.
    Good tour
    PrasunKumar_D, Nov 2022
    The tour was good and enjoyable. The tour guide Gia was excellent story teller. Will recommend to friends.
    Phenomenal tour!!
    Brett_B, Nov 2022
    The beauty was breathtaking! Everything about our tour was wonderful! Would go again on my next trip without a doubt!
    The only neg. I would say...
    Coffy_S, Nov 2022
    The only neg. I would say , is that we had to take Lyft to another hotel and wait at the street corner literally for the bus to pick us up. We had a 6 year old, it was very cold. We were told to be there at 10 til departure time and bus came 10 after scheduled time. While booking it ask for your hotel , then you’re told it’s on the route, but read fine print, because you will have to possibly meet at alternate location on a busy street corner. The tour guide was awesome. The guided tour which is extra $20 is worthwhile. Frequent bathroom stops in addition to a bathroom on the bus. Loved the double decker, views were great! Tour guide pointed out best picture point, and offered to take pictures of you and family. Restaurant that used was great value. Movies on drive back was great and family friendly. Guide very knowledgeable.
    Bucket List ticked
    Hayley_P, Nov 2022
    Derek our guide was excellent - happy to answer any of our questions. We felt very safe with Earl our bus driver too. We did have delays with the breakfast stop - the food wasn’t prepared by the time the group arrived at the stop which meant we had slightly less time at the Grand Canyon than what we could have. Definitely recommend comfortable shoes as lots of walking is involved, but Derek was able to suggest great spots for lunch and the best views.
    Full day covering a lot - would recommend!
    Eileen_C, Nov 2022
    A full day covering so many things ! Gia was a hard working host looking after us all and ensuring we all got the most out of the trip. Would recommend taking the extra tour and the skywalk 👍
    Best tour ever
    Brenda_H, Nov 2022
    The tour was efficiently run from start to finish. Derek was so informative and fun while Milton carried us safely to and from our destinations. We couldn't have asked for a better tour team.
