The two hour train ride didn't include much in the way of scenery. Mostly open fields and trees. Saw a few cows. The train itself is "classic" or quite old but in good shape. The best entertainment was the musicians roving about the cars, the...More

LOVE THE Grand Canyon Railway Hotel and the canyon itself. The hotel needs more handicap accessible rooms. The first class cabin on the train was very comfortable and enjoyable. The Maswick hotel is a bit dated and not well suited for handicapped guests.

This was an enjoyable time for our family. The staff was very friendly and it was a nice time to sit back and watch the scenery. It is a bit pricey but for a vacation experience it was very nice.

Yes, the car is in the luxury car, they give you ten minutes, but only luxury passengers, can get access, which is the last two train cars-you have access to the entire train, but other riders don't.

The shuttle buses have wheelchair access. We witnessed this while at the park. The entire rim trail is paved and I think all buildings along it are accessible. Have a good time, we did!
