This was a great time! The railroad staff was super knowledgeable and friendly! From the phone call to make reservations to the time we stepped off the train after returning, the staff made us their top priority. I was able to make changes to my reservations without any penalties. The ride was scenic and entertainment was provided. Our PSA was... More

My wife and I and two children took the Grand Canyon railway. My wife and I really enjoyed the trip. It got a little long for the kids as it takes 2.25 hrs to travel the 60 miles to the canyon. I think next time I would combine with a nights stay in the park as the 3 hrs you... More

The hotel was great. The buffet was good. I left my phone's Blue Tooth in the hotel after checkout. I called them upon returning home. I never was able to speak to anyone about it but my blue tooth arrived in the mail within two weeks. I never expected to see it again. The train ride was entertaining. The host... More

I would suggest food vouchers for the food car. This would be better for business while on the train. I would also suggest that there would be someone taking orders in each car. We where in the car before the food car and it seemed to be to much traffic. The entertainment had to work around the walkers through out... More

It was a great day. Everyone stayed entertained. Good family fun. Melissa was most helpful in making all the arrangements. Everything went as planned. The accommodations were perfect. Our car guide, Kathy, was personable and entertaining. All of the cowboys did an excellent job entertaining us as well as keeping the little ones involved and entertained, especially the fiddle player.... More
