staff kind, but not very knowledgeable. Didn't really know much outside of the town itself. And getting directions with the map wasn't really much of an option. lol Nice though and I'm sure they were volunteers, they tried.

This is a fantastic visitor center. The staff is so knowledgeable and helpful. The gift shop is the best in Flagstaff. All the Route 66 and train items you could want.

We stopped at the Visitors Centre on Sunday Feb. 23, 2014. We were looking for a variety of things, and the young man that helped us was excellent. He couldn't do enough. He explained everything we wanted to know, and was just great.

Not the usual visitor centre experience. Arrived late on Friday afternoon, not greeted with the usual "How can we help you" but " We close in 10 minutes". Staff clearly wanted to get home rather than help visitors from England. Things got worse when they locked my eight year old daughter in the restroom. I would advise visiting early if... More

Thank you for your review. Although your experience was not a positive one, please know that this is not a typical experience for Flagstaff Visitor Center staff to provide our visitors. When staff began to pull the roll-down gate at 5:00 it must have been of great concern to you, knowing your daughter was in the restroom, located in the... More

The perfect visitors centre. A beautiful railway station building, containing everything train buffs and shopaholics love. A lovely Fl agstaff souvenir store and a separate Route 66 souvenir store. Excellent helpful staff.

Flagstaff's visitor center is an appendage of the railroad station on the highway into town. Parking is easy, and the staff helpful and knowledgeable. They sell a lot of Flagstaff souvenirs, much of it junk. We visited the train station, a time-warped room and could envision setting off from there to Chicago, LA and New York. Except the trains leave... More

The Visitor Center has all the required brochures, etc for local attractions, but it wasn't until I spoke with Jay at the desk that I really understood what to see and where to go (and park). The staff is knowledgeable and passionate about the area. With maps and a highlighter, I had several days activities planned. Plenty to see and... More
