About Grand Canyon Railway
Since 1901, the Grand Canyon Railway and Hotel has been taking passengers on a fabled journey to the heart of one of the seven wonders of the world. Grand Canyon Railway is more than just a mode of transportation: it’s a trip back in time on lovingly restored rail cars with entertaining musicians and the antics of cowboy characters. Out your window, the terrain changes from high desert to prairie, prairie to pine. It’s a view that’s ever-changing until you come across a view so brilliant, it could very well change you. All aboard to the Grand Canyon to make a grand trip grander!

We had a wonderful time with Alexander. He is a one! The scenery is not that great but the relaxing entertainment and letting someone else drive was super.

We enjoyed this 2 hour ride to the South Rim. Our assistant on the train kept us informed and entertained. The cowboys and musician were great. I'd go again!

Booked the polar express in August and found out we would be unable to go in September and even though my email states as long as I cancel within 72 hours of the event we'd be refunded - we aren't getting refunded. Very disappointing that this company can't give a refund 3+ months early. We won't be booking anything else through them in the future unless we know 100% nothing will come up.

We had always wanted to visit the GC via the train and I’m very happy we did. We love old trains and decided to ride in the old Pullman cars. The open air and sounds from the train were amazing. Jeff was our host and he was informative and friendly. We had plenty of time to explore the South Rim and ate at the food court. Would highly recommend. In regards to Covid precautions, we had to wear masks the whole tome while on the train and everyone else did too. Including the staff. But didn’t mind the inconvenience. Go book a trip!!
