Our enjoyment of the Grand Canyon would not have been so if we had not enjoyed the train ride up and the customer service we experienced that helped us prepare! We were given some great tips on where to go each of our two days, including the best food places, sunset views and how to maximize our experiences. The cowboy... More

took my daughter on the dome car ride to the canyon and she though it was amazing. The trip was fun from the entertainment to the staff.

First time to Grand Canyon. Chose to take the train from Williams AZ. Great experience. Would do some things differently. Not accustomed to mountain driving so I would have flown into Flagstaff instead of Phoenix. This would limit the driving although it would still allow convenient access to Sedona and to Williams, AZ. Also, we had to drive from Williams... More

A singer comes into each carriage one the way up and on the way back cowboys gallop up the side of the train and rob the passenger's. My kids loved that. Only downside... More

We certainly could have driven the 65 miles to the south rim of the Grand Canyon in an hour but WHY NOT take a train? This slow moving, well appointed, comfortable train made our trip that much more special. Definitely upgrade to the first class car(s). Totally worth it. Crew members were friendly, knowledgeable and fun. The train robbery and... More

The whole experience was amazing! You need to do this at least once. Every staff member was helpful and friendly. The hotel was remodeled and clean. The train ride was informative and entertaining. The gift shops had tons of variety and fair priced.

What a wonderful experience, from purchasing the tickets to ending a trip with tons of memories. Everyone was knowledgeable , friendly, and did an awesome job. We chose first class, with great snacks and drinks. I would highly recommend the Grand Canyon Railway.

Our group of 8 (4 adults/ 4 kids) loved our package weekend. We chose the 2 night package with a canyon stay at the Maswik Lodge. Everything was perfect and memorable. The train ride was a blast and very relaxing. First class offered comfortable seating and snacks, beverages, and entertainment. The train ride was a highlight of our extensive week... More
