The hotel and meals in Williams very good. Staff were very nice, entertaining and informative. The train ride was fun and the staff were very helpful and informative. Entertainment was good but the train robbery according to my friend who had experienced it years ago was no where near as good as it used to be. There were only in... More

One of the best day trips we have ever done. We paid extra for the luxury dome and it was worth every penny. It was quiet, relaxing and we had a dedicated person to answer canyon questions during the ride. We absolutely loved the train ride. It is smooth and comfortable...not noisy or jerky at all. The entertainment consists of... More

My husband and I decided to ride the Grand Canyon Railway when we visited the Grand Canyon. We selected the luxurious parlor car for our trip and it did not disappoint! The parlor car was an excellent choice; we were greeted by the attendant, Carole, who welcomed us and shared her extensive knowledge of what to expect. It was comfortable,... More

What a fun and unique way to visit the Grand Canyon. We stayed at the Grand Canyon Railway Hotel for a couple of nights, and loved being in Williams. After a cute western show the first morning, we boarded this historic train. We booked first class tickets and the seats were comfortable and reclined. There were snacks and beverages provided...

Picked up a coffee at the station and headed to the 'Fred Harvey' luxury dome carriage - plenty of coffee on board! Coffee, tea, water, jogurt, fruit, breads and pastries were all provided as well as a bar, should you desire a Mimosa. Very pleasant hostess who was thorough in her instructions of various ways to see the Grand Canyon.... More

Our train ride to the Canyon was fantastic. We chose to ride first class and glad we did. First class has seats that recline and air conditioning. They also have snack service included. In the morning on the way to the Canyon we had coffee, juice, pastries, muffins, fresh fruit and more. On the way back we had meat, cheese,... More

There is a... More
