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!

Our family of 16 went to Sedona,AZ and this was how we traversed the landscape to see the Grand Canyon. Very fun! We had three generations: babies, kids, teenagers, parents and grandparents. This accommodates everyone. We partnered it with a bus tour and saw great sights but no one was ever hit, tired, whiny, or out of their comfort zone for activity.

If there's any chance you can experience this fabulous rail journey from Williams, AZ to Grand Canyon Village and back, please treat yourself to the grandest cars in their fleet. Northbound, take the Luxury Observation Dome - a full-length dome up top and a spacious lounge down below with private bar service, exclusive cocktails, and morning snacks provided. Their special Bloody Mary was truly delicious. Delightful way to start out. On the way back, splurge for the Luxury Parlor Car. “Travel like a rail baron. Step out on the rear platform and see the landscape from a different and unique perspective. Enjoy a private bar featuring exclusive cocktails, and afternoon snacks provided.” Very comfortable and relaxing. Great guitarists entertaining in both directions too. What a memory maker!

It would have been perfect.... But their Reastraunt/buffet hostess staff are less than friendly and will be flat rude......i asked for a pen or pencil to fill out our box lunch request and were met with a rude "Yes, u can use a pen or a pencil"......i tried to speak to another....they just turned and walked away...we got tired of waiting almost a half hour for our box lunch...they forgot about us.......A good travel tip....a block down the street across the tracks is the Pine Country Reastraunt.....no lines...great food...very affordable.

Had a great day trip up the the Rim. It is a little over 2 hrs one way on the train. We were in Coach D on the way up. Michael our car dude was great. Informed us of different things along the way as well as kept us hydrated with water. Trip back was Excellent!!! Rob in one of the bubble viewing cars was Fantastic. Provided lots of entertainment and interacted with everyone on our car. He gave it a real personal experience! Tadder and another older gentleman provided some sing along songs and and entertainment as well. This is a great way to get to and from the GC!

Traveled on the Grand Canyon Railway with family. It was a fun adventurous time for most of us. However, when you can get a 14-year-old to say that she had a really good time, you know it was great. Kaili Was informative, lively, and well received by the whole family. She was a wonderful PSA. I would recommend this for families.
