I took my teenaged daughters on this for their spring break. It was an amazing way to get up to and from the canyon. We thoroughly enjoyed it .

Staff are very informative and pleasant, the trip is alot of fun! The children on the train really enjoyed themselves, the entertainers did a great job. The only thing that was slightly off was the robbery, ours was a little late and everyone seemed quite tired. Well worth the trip, especially got first time visitors to the grand canyon!

First time visit while traveling by RV. Stayed in RV park for convenience. Do need to be comfortable walking as it is some distance to the depot, etc. RV Park was clean. There is shuttle service available. Be aware that the campground is right next to a mainline railway line and several trains came through at night blowing their horns... More

I took the train when I was 14 and loved the cowboy + "robbery" entertainment on board, so it was wonderful to be able to take our 8 year old son and have him experience this. 21 years later, it did not disappoint and was just as fun to share with my own family! Can't recommend enough, it was a... More

Over priced!!! Train ride too long and too slow. Bus tour takes you to 3 popular lookouts that anyone can get to on their own. Driver rushes you on and off the bus. Not much time left before train takes you back. Poor value for you hard earned money!

The Grand Canyon Railway was everything we expected and more. What a terrific, and environmentally friendly way to get to the Grand Canyon. On the way we saw prairie dogs, cattle, and even wild horses! We missed the morning Wild West show but the afternoon train robbery was great! Train car guides were incredibly nice and extremely knowledgeable. The entertainers... More

Only complaint I have with this is I feel they should have e-mailed me about the change in train times. I booked this train ride in July and did not go till April of this year. Glad I picked up our tickets the night before so that we knew of the change. It would have been horrible to get there... More

The railway brings the history of the wild west into the forefront. Besides the beauty of the Grand Canyon, the history of the Kolb Brothers, the woman architect who built so many buildings, and the Hopi Indians make the trip so wonderful. Not all of us could hike but these other attractions made the trip wonderful.

A fantastic way to enjoy the ride to the Grand Canyon. The train was clean, the staff excellent. We rode in first class and the seats were comfortable and we had morning and afternoon snacks which were fantastic.
