Really enjoyed the 2 hour trip to the Grand Canyon, our host in the carriage April was fantastic, enthusiastic and had time for everyone, a real star in customer service. The trip is full of entertainment, singers, story tellers and then a mock train robbery on your way back. All in all fantastic

Firstly, there seems to be an issue with the partnership site sending reviews to TA - lots of 1* reviews coming in from people who have enjoyed the ride. This may put you off if you look solely at the ratings, so be aware. I booked return tickets on-line from the UK around 3 months in advance. This is all... More

Train ride with Kathy with a K. The trip was great. Kathy w/k was very entertaining. She kept everyone's attention with great facts about the area, the park, jokes and games. She had all of us laughing and the children told jokes. We enjoyed our musical entertainment. The outlaws were great, they forgot to take my gold teeth and my... More

We rode the Grand Canyon Railway with another couple to the South Rim and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our attendant, "Kathy with a K", as she calls herself was delightful and full of wonderful information. It's obvious that she loves her job! We were in the last car, which was an adult car, and we had access to the small balcony... More

My husband and I had a great time and was well worth the money we spent. I recommend doing this and there is nothing better to do then to see the Grand Canyon in person. We also enjoyed our stay at the hotels.

We drove from our home to Williams Arizona. After that long drive, the train was a welcome rest from driving. I didn't expect the extra enjoyment. The Wild West show before the train left was so fun for all of us. The kids laughed and it helped to transition them into the whole experience of the Grand Canyon. The entertainment... More

Visiting the Grand Canyon with teenagers and my attention span for this sort of thing not being to good, this made our family trip to the Grand Canyon very pleasant. I would definitely recommend the train as it was very entertaining both going and coming back and our carriage attendant Becky was great and very amusing. She is a font... More
