We had a great time . We took the early trip which is the way to go. The line to get on the sky walk was only about 30: minutes. then we went to eat and there was no line to do that. Keep in mind it is a pandemic so they limit the number of people allowed in the parks.

This was a good experience, a real tour guide would have been awesome instead of using the bus driver and a videotape, the microphone system in the bus was faulty so I missed out on a lot of things. There is no guidance and not enough time for your visit so we only got a chance to go the skywalk and eat lunch.

The West Rim of the Grand Canyon is a must-see day trip from Las Vegas. The helicopter ride and the boat ride at the bottom of the Canyon were spectacular. Be warned that combining the helicopter ride, boat ride, Sky Walk and 2-stops along the rim of the Canyon is a very tight schedule. Keep up a quick pace to squeeze it all in. It was the highlight of our family's Las Vegas vacation.
