We really enjoyed our time on the railway. The west show acknowledged that there was a need for humor and fun. The music entertainment was wonderful. The scenery was beautiful and our host on the train car was very informative about the west.

We were so excited for our first ever train experience & we were completely disappointed. The morning started off with an invitation to a small theatrical production before boarding. Once on our way we were serenaded by a guitar picking cowboy & he had a wonderful voice but was persistent about receiving tips. Then the photographer showed up wanting take... More

We were there during the slow season I suspect so not many on board the railway. However, we did enjoy the entertainment as the actors still tried their best to play their roles to a few people. Everyone was so friendly. We rode in the grand view car but I think it would have been just as good down below... More

This was our first trip to the Grand Canyon. We had a group with grandparents, grandkids (8-12yrs old) and parents. The train ride is comfortable, clean and the staff is accommodating. The reason for 4 stars - I mean, it's a slow go up there and back! It's a long day. Maybe it says that in all the booking information... More

A terrific way to get to the Grand Canyon. Relax and don't worry about traffic or weather. Great scenery along the way.

Very pleasant way to travel to the Canyon, so convenient ! The entertainment on board would have likely appealed more to kids ! I would do this again, very affordable $160 round trip, would have felt cheated at a higher cost !

I don't have a single complaint about my experience. Our PSA Amberrose was wonderful -- she gave us so much information on the ride up to the canyon that I knew exactly what to see, where to start, and how to get back to the train station in time for the return trip. I'm grateful that they offer an adult-only... More
