We found this by chance while looking for things to do in Flagstaff. We reviewed the website and checked out feedback. We decided to ride coach out to the canyon and parlor on our return. I think that is the way to go. I want to thank Dani for an outstanding first leg in coach. She did a great job... More

We ventured to the Grand Canyon via the railways. It was fun and entertaining and a nice way to see the countryside. We were on a package deal and the train was included. We caught the train in Williams, AZ and traveled 2.5 hours north to the Grand Canyon (65 miles). We choose one of the luxury cars and to... More

No driving, fun entertainment, good food in first class and the first class observation deck. Interesting facts from the hostess and train conductor

This is a buffet style restaurant, I had both the breakfast and Dinner buffets. The atmosphere is lively, and the service is friendly. It is the quality and quantity of the food that makes this a great place to eat. The breakfast buffet has a vast selection of foods to choice from, but it was the ability to have your... More

We took the luxury dome car and it was worth the money. The cowboy serenade was fun and fit the setting. It was clean, the views spectacular. There was plenty of time on the Grand Canyon rim before the return trip. A relaxing a beautiful day.

Very fun. Asked for the "adult only car" no one under 16 allowed on this car. This made for a very relaxing trip with no crying kids. Entertainment was good and "Drew" was very funny. I would definitely ride this again. A little expensive ($92 total rt) but well worth it. Most didn't realize they should tip the entertainment a... More

The train ride was 2 1/2 hour. There are different levels of accommodations available. We chose 1st Class which was the next to the cheapest but was still a little expensive. But 1st Class is very adequate. I don't believe you need anything better. The ride is slow and nice and smooth. You do not see any of the Canyon... More

Had a great time. The entertainment was awesome. They had cowboys come in board along with the sheriff. My two kids had a great time. It was very relaxing after spending the day hiking the canyon.

This was our first visit to the Grand Canyon, so we thought the rail experience would be nice. It was, but it wasn't as spectacular as I thought it would be. The ride is about 2 hours each way, but the scenery is fairly ordinary. The 'entertainment' is a bit hokey, as well. But even given that, it was worthwhile,... More

We really enjoyed the train ride. The entertainment was wonderful and our dome view was so much fun!! Next time we do it we are going to spend a night at a hotel there in the canyon so we have more time to see the canyon.
