    Spectacular views
    Amazing views and lots of interesting stories about Grand Canyon. You can approach the edge pretty closely. There is some rock climbing to the hill called Antel. You have full panoramic views of the Western Rim. You can see Colorado River at the bottom of the canyon. You can spend an hour or more here just enjoying the beauty of nature. Transportation by shuttle is pretty reliable. There is a cafe, but is currently under renovations.

    Spectacular Panoramic Views of the West Rim
    Guano Point is a separate part of the Skywalk West Rim Grand Canyon experience. You must enter the area through the official entrance building controlled by the Hualapai Tribe. The admission fee is around $65 dollars. That will provide you access to shuttle buses that transport people to the Skywalk and Guana Point. Guana Point provides a more panoramic view of the Grand Canyon gorge with the Colorado River clearly visible on one side and great scenic views on the other. You can hike to the top of some peaks to get more views of the area. With very few barriers, you can get fairly close to the edge as you take your photographs. The shuttle buses run frequently and will take you back to the entrance area.

    Guano point worth it. Pack a lunch
    Grand Canyon west rim Guano point was beautiful. Quite scary actually as there are no barriers. Just dead drops on either side of you. I went with my hubby and 2 boys ages 7 and 11. Keep an eye on them so that they don’t get close to the edge. I wouldn’t take any kids younger than that. Not really worth it… The shuttle buses were good and most of the time frequent. Once we waited more than 20 mins. We were lucky that day was nice and breezy. We had lunch at the first stop (eagle point). Not much to see there but they had air conditioned restaurant for lunch. Pack a lunch if you can.

Overall I'm giving this review 3 stars, please continue to read as it does have a heartbreaking story.

The views of the canyon are amazing! We stayed at the cabins and watching sunrise and sunset were beautiful. They have two free walking trails one is a half a mile while the other is 1.7 miles. The cabins are nice but overpriced and they are not very clean nor do the rooms have a t.v.

The food and the famous hualapai taco is very basic. The fry bread is good but this taco with a drink is over $20. Food sucks bring your own if you decide to do. The room does provide a mini fridge and microwave.

If you go to Guano Point and the other hiking trail you need to buy a general admission ticket. You will then take a bus ride to both locations. Guano Point is worth it.

The Skyrim is the biggest ripoff since the start of inflation. DON'T DO IT! They only allow you out there for 2-3 mins and you cannot take your phone, however you can buy a photo. 8 photos for $50. This place is a tourist 🪤

Once we left, we stopped at a store about 30 miles away and there we learned the story behind the skywalk. An engineer from California told the hualapai that he could design the skywalk if he could get a percentage of the sales. They agreed, and once this thing was built the hualapai filed for bankruptcy and that man lost his entire life savings. He died young too, I think he was only 52. I guess he died from stress. During that time several of the Indians in this tribe made the comment that the engineer deserved it because he was white. So sad! We cannot control what our ancestors did so it's so ignorant to make a comment like that. The hualapai is about 2300 strong, in comparison they are the smallest, but also the most wealthy. They make about $1 million per day. Because of the story with the engineer I would never visit the Grand Canyon West Rim again, go to the South Rim.

Nice point of view, kids loved to climb the hill.
the "problem" is that the area is so controled that you cant walk a lot. The "trail" is short, and as you cant walk anywhere on site, after 20 minutes MAX, youll be done.
Its nice because its near Vegas, but its kind of limited as a activity. If we had the choice, we would rater go to the sout-north rim.

Not for the faint of heart, Guano gives you a much better view than Eagle Point. The scenery is dramatic and spectacular- almost surreal. There is a rocky outcrop you can climb for a better view and cracking photos

Guano Point was the most spectacular place to experience the Grand Canyon. Far less people than the South Rim and did not have the tourist trap vibe. There are no railings so caution must be used. We did not do the glass walkway as that got too many bad reviews.

This was a beautiful area. It was a great day and the view was awesome. Spent some time checking out the area then rode the bus to another area. No private vehicles were allowed. There was also a checkpoint going into the Tribal area.

Nothing interesting compare to Eagle Point in Grand Canyaon West park. Since there is a shuttle bus linking from visitor carpark lot to Eagle point and here. Just to take in the view and enjoy the 60deg F weather

Rented a car and drove from Vegas... long drive in the wilderness but an adventure nonetheless. Stock up on snacks and drinks on the way.

Beautiful views can be had at this location but the pricing is deceptive and the Skywalk is by far the WORST view of the canyon at this site. The price for the Skywalk is tourist trap price gouging. I regret forking my money over — not allowed to bring your phone (pass thru a metal detector), must pay for professional photos.

Nothing against the Native American tribe running this, but my advice is skip the Skywalk. Pay only for the self guided parts of this experience. “HUALAPAI LEGACY DAY PASS | $44.00”

Guano Point is the ultimate part of this experience. If you are able, there is some light climbing here where you can get some “king of the world” type photos and breathtaking views.

If coming from Vegas, this is an all day affair. We left about 10am and got back to our hotel about 8:30pm. We also did Hoover Dam along the way which was relatively quick.

Summary: get ready for the drive, skip the Skywalk, only buy the most basic entry, you’ll have plenty to see without any extras.

Out of all the places we went to in Vegas and the the Grand Canyon, Guano point has to be the most amzing place I have ever been to and seen, totally breath taking, I`d fly to Maccarren airport 12.5 hrs, sit on a coach for another 3hs to Guano point for the day and then come all the way back, it`s that good
