West Rim (has Skywalk)
If I go to the west rim should I also purchase the ticket for Skywalk?
Our advice is: Yes! Since it is all in the West Gorge, it is worthwhile to walk on the glass bridge. Buy in advance our discounted tickets 25 ($30)
Pros: Every day, the group tour time is quite abundant, and the ride time will not be too long (more than 4 hours). After the West Gorge, there are glass bridges, or sea and land packages (helicopter plus cruise ships).Suitable for short stays in Las Vegas and only one day to visit the canyons.
Cons: The actual attractions are too few, only to see a glimpse of the Grand Canyon. The place is too commercial and all items are extra spending.
In addition, there is a more time-saving way to travel directly from Las Vegas by helicopter! We recommend the following helicopter products

South rim (no Skywalk but lots of attractions)

If I go to the south rim, do I still need to go to the west rim for Skywalk?
Our advice is: No. You will probably be disappointed at the west rim after visiting the south rim. It will cost you a lot more and most people that visit west rim after south rim say it's not even close to worth the cost.
Pros: Lots of attractions and can see different views of the Grand Canyon. Good for camping or RV trip as well.
Cons: It's far from Las Vegas. If you join a one day tour you will spend about nine hours on the bus.
