We rode the train from the Depot in Williams to the Grand Canyon. We were in the Luxury Parlor on both trips, to and from. Singing cowboys and a Train Robbery and corny jokes made the time enjoyable. Fun way to go to the Grand Canyon. Neat gift shop at the Depot in Williams.

The depot has a nice gift shop with just about everything you'll need for your trip in the event you forget something. We left on a misty Tuesday morning so most people were milling about in the gift shop instead of waiting outside. There is only one set of bathrooms in this place that I saw but they were efficient.... More

Nice gift shop. Friendly people. Prices good. Also ate at the dinner and breakfast buffet as part of the train package; the food was wonderful. Horse/carriage rides available, but we did not do this.

This is the departure point for the Grand Canyon Railway that take you up to the canyon. Get here at leaast 1/2 hour before departure and enjoy the wild west shootout re-enactment before you board the train. If you are a railfan, take some extra time to walk around the depot and hotel anf view the railroad locomotives and equipment... More

Neat old building that acts as the Depot for the Grand Canyon Railway. Take a walk around in it either before or after your train trip to the Grand Canyon.

Savor this masterpiece of a working restoration. Tasteful and elegant restoration of a fine RR Depot. Just the thing to start and end your journey to the Grand Canyon via the train.

This area was really cute, most of the stores weren't open that early, but it was a nice little area. I saw they had railroad things, and zip lines. I browsed around while waiting for Bearazona to open. I would like to come back when I have time. The people there were friendly.

Nostalgic trains to see and everyone is dressed like the old days. Friendly folks all around. Horse carriage rides are available too. We didn't try it because it was too chilly for us but we did take pictures with them

It was interesting to take a step back in time, and see how it used to be. They have a good gift shop and a good show.
