GRAND CANYON SKYWALK TOUR PRICE: $170.00
Children 10-16: $145.00
ALL-INCLUSIVE PRICE! This price includes THE SKYWALK, sales tax, park entrance fees, breakfast, lunch, and a lovely day with one of us! We do not have fuel surcharges or any other junk fees that start at $89 and pad it to $180.00.
THIS IS A 12+ HOUR TOUR! We depart Las Vegas between 6:30 and 7:00am and return around 7:30pm.
WE USE 15 PASSENGER VANS: Please make sure you are comfortable traveling in our 15 passenger vans. They are not customized.
REFUNDS: Cancellations within 48 hours are not eligible for refunds.
GROUP SIZES: Please make sure that small group tours are conducive to your travel needs and you don't mind making friends with strangers.
FOOD NOTE: We provide Arby's Market Fresh sandwiches. The cookies are made and baked fresh daily by Albertson's supermarket.
HIKER RATING 3/10: We walk along the upper rim trail, which is an easy, paved trail. There are a few hills and some lookout points that have stairs. There is very little off-trail walking and if you do huff and puff, it's not because you are out of shape. We'll be at 7,000 feet in elevation!
NO CHILDREN UNDER 10: We unfortunately do not allow children under ten. The van is small and intimate and the walk is not suitable for young or infant children. Please call us if you have multiple children over ten but one that isn't and we can discuss this with you.
SHOWS: Please DO NOT, never-ever-ever, swear-on-a-grave, BOOK A SHOW on the same night as your tour. There's always a slight chance that your tour experience could be seriously enhanced by a non-charged bonus like a flat tire, inclement weather, accident on the freeway, or even get caught in a herd of my beloved Michigan state animals, construction cones!
CHILD PRICING: Child pricng is for ages 10-16. Please call or email us if you have a few children over ten and one slightly under and we can make an exception for you. NO INFANTS! WE WILL REFUSE SERVICE UPON PICKUP TO ANYONE WHO BOOKS A CHILD UNDER 10 WITHOUT CONFIRMING IT WITH OUR OFFICE FIRST!

GRAND CANYON NATIONAL PARK vs. GRAND CANYON WEST RIM: There's a big misconception that the entire Grand Canyon is located inside Grand Canyon National Park. This is not true. The Grand Canyon is 277 miles long and only the first 129 miles of it are inside Grand Canyon National Park. The next section of the Grand Canyon is on the Hualapai Indian Reservation. The South Rim boasts expansive beauty while the West Rim boasts stunning, steep cliffs that drop 4,000 feet right to the bottom. Both parts of the Grand Canyon are very unique and picturesque. The West Rim is also extremely rich with Native American History and the Hualapai Indian Tribe. The West Rim also has this amazing glass bridge built over the Grand Canyon called the Grand Canyon Skywalk. Our tour includes this but be aware that the Skywalk is not in Grand Canyon National Park. It's actually at Grand Canyon West Rim on the Hualapai Indian Reservation. Only the tours to Grand Canyon West Rim include the Skywalk so please make sure that if your main interest is seeing the Skywalk that you book this tour. You won't see it on our GRAND CANYON WALKING TOUR or GRAND CANYON SUNSET TOUR. The main differences are:
1. It's a much shorter drive so we add more to the tour like a tour over Hoover Dam and a stop at the famous Las Vegas sign.
2. The edge of the Grand Canyon at the West Rim drops 4,000 straight to the bottom! It'll raise the hair on your toes!
3. The best view of the Colorado River is at the West Rim! It dwarfs the views of the river at the South Rim.
4. Guano Point is one of the most stunning view points within the whole Grand Canyon. It brings you right into the Canyon.
5. You aren't as tired because the drive is much shorter and so we are back by 7-7:30pm
6. The West Rim is in the Mohave Desert while the South Rim is in the Kaibab Forest
7. It's much warmer then the South Rim and enjoys weather similar to Vegas.
8. The West Rim is very rich in Hualapai Indian history.

Grand-Adventures.com is the only company that allows THREE FULL HOURS at the Grand Canyon. We don't believe in driving all that far to spend an hour there. Our tours are designed to enhance your Grand Canyon experience. The tour guide will carry your picnic lunch in a backpack and set up Eagle or Guano point in the picnic area. We always like to remind our guests that the more you eat at lunch, the lighter their pack will be the rest of the day! They will also point out hidden lookout points, good picture spots, and explain how the Grand Canyon formed.
We specialize in small group tours that focus on quality, value, and service, knowing that small groups develop a higher personal experience for you. It also allows your tour guide to interact with you on a more personal level so that your experience of the Grand Canyon is as memorable as it should be. Our goal in this small group setting is to treat each of you like a friend visiting from out-of-town, not like a number with a name tag.
Our price includes the Skywalk and a fully-guided tour. Our tour guides are with ou all day to make sure that they maximize your experience at the West Rim. They'll take you on a guided walked once you reach the West Rim and stay with you the whole day, even at Hoover Dam. They'll use all of their training and experience to show you the best spots and history at the Grand Canyon.
Your tour includes complimentary pickup and dropoff service! All transportation services and costs are included in your tour, including free pickup and dropoff service at your hotel or casino. We will pick up from any hotel or casino adjacent to the Las Vegas Strip, such as Paradise Road, Henderson, Dean Martin Drive, Frank Sinatra Drive, and anything near the airport. Services are limited to customers of Grand-Adventures.com, Inc.
We include a McDonald's or Burger King breakfast in your Grand Canyon tour (and all other tours) with Grand-Adventures.com. We use McDonalds 99% of the time but use Burger King too if there is a delay at McDonald's. You can eat as much as you like. We use to serve the continental breakfast but we learned that we ended up losing more travel time by doing this. Our guests ended up ordering food at gas stations, asked to stop, or walked to nearby places to get a bite to eat. Plus, everyone at Grand-Adventures.com came from families where it was only proper to stuff the guests with food!
We'll actually walk over Hoover Dam and give you a quick tour of the area! Yee Haw! We are the only tour operator offering West Rim tours that include a briefly guided tour OVER Hoover Dam. We'll spend about an hour checking out the might Hoover Dam and explain the history of it to you.
We'll stop at the sign either on the way out of Vegas or upon returning so you can get a picture with the most famous sign in the world! It's located south of Mandalay Bay and is a world landmark. It depends on time and where everyone is staying if we stop on the way out or upon returning. The good news is that it only takes a quick second to stop and see the most famous sign in the world. This way, you can prove to all of your friends that you were actually in Vegas and didn't return home penniless from gambling!
SAFTETY NOTE: We do not recommend any of our tours for anyone with physical disabilities that limit or restrict mobility or if you have heart or respiratory problems. The grand canyon is located at 5,000 feet in altitude and has very thin air. You will need to provide a letter from your doctor clearing you to walk at 5,000 feet altitude if you have heart, respiratory, or physical disabilities. We also do not recommend our tours for handicap individuals as the terrain is uneven for walking.
TRAVEL NOTE: Please bring a book or another forms of entertainment. It's a 2.5 hour drive to the West Rim but one of the few destinations that you'll see that actually lives up to its hype! The scenery changes quite a bit and we'll drive through a Joshua Tree forest. Those who don't choose to sleep normally talk to each other.
WALKING NOTE: We reserve the right to change or alter the walking route or tour for any reason. We may not visit the lookout points above. The main reason for altering a course usually involves inclement weather during the winter time or excessive rain in the summertime. We'll still spend 3-4 hours inside the park but drive to different lookout points. Please contact us immediately if you feel that your tour was cut short by the tour guide so that we can resolve this issue with you.
WALKING TOUR TIMES, ROUTES, & SEASONS: The walking tour departs at 6-6:30am all year. We do not offer the sunset tour from December 1st to February 28th. The reason is that the sun sets a bit too far south west of the Grand Canyon. We also alter the walking route in the winter. The western shuttle systems in the park close for the winter. There is a very good chance that the tour guide will let you stay for the sunset in December and January because the sun sets by 4:30pm.
Please email us at [email protected] or call 1.800.618.0744 if you have any questions about the departure dates and months.
