What a great way to visit the Grand Canyon. Jump on the train and let them do the driving. Comfortable and entertaining travel.

We were taking the train to the south rim of the Grand Canyon. They put on a show for 15 minutes prior to boarding the train. Full of laughs and giglles, especially for the little ones.

Save yourself the trouble of finding parking at the Grand Canyon and take the train to the park. We rode on the Fred Harvey car with the dome view and it was woderful. Very informative conductor, snacks, clean restrooms & lovely company. 4 Stars!

Not far off the interstate and there was plenty of parking. A small but efficient area that separated those with tickets and those purchasing. A little gift shop and an area where cowboys put on a show (not necessary if you are not in to...More

The suitcases that you're taking to the canyon need to be dropped off in the Railway Hotel lobby in the morning. They'll take them all the way to your room at the canyon. Extra luggage will have to stay in your car. You... More

I have not gone then, but We asked the same question about coming in January and staff stated it is pretty dead there as it is very cold. So the train should not be full. I stayed 2 1/2 days in the Canyon, so not sure of the... More
