Step aboard the Grand Canyon Railway for a trip to the majestic Grand Canyon you'll never forget. Feel the rumble of a vintage train as the engine chugs 65-miles (approximately 105 km) across the beautiful Northern Arizona countryside. The train offers kaleidoscopic views of the San Francisco Peaks and rolls through valleys adorned in wild flowers, dense pine forests, high desert plains and small canyons.

What to Expect
This Grand Canyon Railway adventure tour starts at Williams Depot in Arizona. Check in and, before boarding your train, watch a fun Wild West shootout re-enactment in an outdoor theater.
Then, aboard your train, settle into your seat and get ready to journey across Arizona’s northern countryside to the Grand Canyon National Park. As you ride, musicians will stroll by to entertain and actors will perform a faux old-time train robbery.
Once you arrive at the canyon, get off your train and board a motor coach for a trip touring the South Rim.
If you’ve upgraded to include lunch, enjoy your meal at the Maswik Lodge after the rim tour.
Your Grand Canyon tour ends back at Williams Depot after your return train ride.

This was so much fun! I can see why there were so many families on the train, the crew really get into the spirit and character of an old train ride. We decided to splurge with the luxury done, mostly for the age limitations (we...More

If you’re already close to the Canyon, you have to take a lengthy van ride to get to the train depot, and of course pick-up is early. But the town where the train starts is really neat, and I enjoyed the train depot. Lots of...More

We started at the hotel in Williams, stayed overnight, and then took the train the following morning to the south rim of the Canyon. We spend the day there, spent another night, and left the following afternoon around 4PM or so. Totally worth the entire experience!
