Lovely little town and lovely shops and restaurants. I loved the little cowboy being shot show as the cowboys integrated with the audience and it was funny and entertaining and although loud it was really well done. Did not use the train on this occasion but its worth another visit....really different and unique. Loads of outside seats to sit on... More

I've taken the train on 2 separate occasions in the past but this trip was just so our son who loves all things trains could see the sights. We got there early so we could catch the wild west show. The show was cute but the cabot actors really went above and beyond before the show even started. One of... More

Seats inside and outside to wait for the train, Helpful people at the ticket booth and gift shop. Very friendly. It was still very cold in May so I bought a nice wool hat to wear fo a reasonable price. Iwas impressed with the whole place. I had never ridden on a train before.

Very clean, capacious home station for the Grand Canyon Railway. Large, dim, old-fashioned and expensive gift shop. Quite large, busy in-house restaurant with friendly but necessarily bustling service. Wild West Show in adjacent arena a big pre-railway ride tourist draw.

They have very reasonalbly priced souveniers (sic?) and customer service is pleasant and helpful. They have items that are not always found in regular gift shops.

We stopped off here for an hour as part of a tour of the west coast! That's plenty of time to have a walk around, look in the gift shops and take lots of photos. The cowboy show is the main attraction and a good laugh. Get there early to get good seats!

best breakfast buffet in the US!! Fresh; plentiful; lots of variety and really good value.... Difficult to beat. The wild west show is very kitsch/corny but great fun... Then you get on the train!!

Easy to get to, staff very helpful, no pressure to buy anything. Visit was part of a package deal and recommend a visit to the city and take advantage of what Williams and the Grand Canyon Railway have to offer.
