Enjoyed our stay at the Grand Canyon Railway Hotel as well as the train ride to the canyon. Kathy "K" was our PSA on the train and helped us map out our 3 hour tour of the south rim, and was very knowledgeable about sites. She was very helpful and made the two hour train trip go by fast also.... More

What an excellent adventure and first time train ride for my adult son. We really enjoyed sitting in a domed car and what a great value.

If you want it all done for you, this is it. It is a fixed program that covers lodging in the GC Railway Hotel (think mid-line hotel), meals in the GCR dining room (buffet, buffet, buffet), transportation to the GC (2 hour train ride in classic train cars), and a short bus tour of the GC (more like a dedicated...

My boys 6, 8 liked the train better than the canyon! Brian the conductor was so lovely and helpful. The outlaws were awesome, be sure to find the 'show' at 9

We went for the 09:30 train at Williams - Make sure you get there early so you can watch all of the Wild West Show - It's a bit cheesy but good clean fun. We had booked the Observation Dome tickets which means you are on the top deck of the train in a glass dome. This gave us great... More

We booked the Grand Canyon Railway from the UK as part of our USA Roadtrip and it was great. It seems expensive but once we had experienced the train ride, lunch and coach trip it was well worth every penny! The whole trip was really well organised, staff were knowledgable and very friendly. We stayed in the Grand Canyon Railway... More

It is a nice ride, up to the Grand Canyon. Our attendant was fun and entertaining, she was also informative on the area and things to do and see. The kids loved having root beer floats in the cafe car. Would definitely go again.

We really enjoyed taking this super nice train ride into the Grand Caynon. What a great way to see the land & the animals. We sat in the luxury dome car which gives you access to the entire train, snacks & beverages & a knowledgable host for any & all questions. Train was very clean. The Cowboys were a tad... More

This is so much fun and relaxing. We did the one day round trip. If we had done a little more homework ahead of time, we would have booked going up, staying over night and coming back the next day. Ask to be in Amber Rose's car. She is absolutely amazing! Sweetie and Rascal Pants
