I definitely recommend the Railway experience to all who plan to go for the first time. We took the 2 day Canyon Discovery tour and everything about it was great. The coup d' gra was the Canyon its self. By taking the train and subsequent motor coach tour we avoided the wandering around trying to get information, trying to understand... More

It was a relaxing way to get to the Canyon. There was a lot of history given by the public service guide on the train. Getting held up by the outlaws was a great way to bring people together. The musicians who played were good also.

Although I rarely write letters to offer extreme compliments, this one is very much in order. My wife and I took your three day package in the Grand Canyon and were blown away at the quality of the total experience from beginning to end. Train beautifully restored, and hotel accommodations were terrific. Great few day getaway.

This was such a fun, enjoyable trip from Williams, AZ to the Grand Canyon. Amber Rose made the trip super entertaining as well as informational. The musicians were good and while we enjoyed them, Amber Rose made our trip. It's a great way to visit the Grand Canyon without driving and trying to find parking - plus gaining information on...

Take the extra time to travel like an old time Westerner. This scenic train ride is both a relaxing and an informative way to visit the Grand Canyon. The staff can help with all kinds of recommendations for your trip. On top of all of that Williams is a wonderful town to stay in. Great for individuals, couples, families and... More

Amber Rose was an awesome host in our car. She explained details of the area land and the people that live there, plus their way-of-life. Also, she told us of local animals and made us aware of what to expect while at the canyon. Ask for her car if you are going to take the train. I would suggest riding... More

Loved, loved, loved the first class accomodations on the GCRR. Had a marvelous time and enjoyed the train attendant's constant quips. He had us in stitches for most of the trip. Enjoyed the awesome buffet and the cowboy singers that serenaded us with old western songs. The "train robbery" we could have done without. Thought that was a bit cheesy.... More

We took the Grand Canyon Railway to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon to avoid driving and figuring out where to park at the South Rim. The train ride takes 2-1/4 hours each way at a maximum speed of 40 mph. We boarded at 9:15 am after a watching a hokey "play" on the Depot grounds, and left the... More

All aboard for the 2 1/4 hour ride from Williams to the Grand Canyon. Patti, the PSA, was very entertaining & knowledgeable. Took the 1 1/2 hour tour of the south rim with stops at 2 overlooks. Oscar is a very good tour guide. Visit was marred by the bus breaking down. Took the train back to Williams that was... More
