This was a great experience for us. The sights are breath taking. The tour bus is the best way to see the canyon when it is cold outside. Amber Rose our PSA on the train did an awsome job.

If you have never seen the Grand Canyon and wish to get a wonderful preview, this is it. With the trip there, the tour and the overnight stay I learned so much both about the Canyon and what to do for my next trip.

The Grand Canyon Railway excursion added greatly to the excitement of our trip, with adding entertainment and knowledge/fact finding along the way. Although the train ride will take 2 hours, the time seems to fly by with anticipation. Would recommend this... More

The Grand Canyon Railway trip was awesome! We were in first class and loved the experience. The ride was smooth and scenic. The train travels through wilderness unlike what you would see by highway. The arrival and departure location is very near to the Grand Canyon entrance ...very short walk to the rim. The train staff were very knowledgeable and... More
