I was not impressed by the Williams Depot. There is currently a water shortage and all water must be shipped in. Upon entering the Depot i was hit with the resonating stench of out house. Gross to say the least.

The train ride was informational and entertaining. Amber Rose did a great job making everyone feel comfortable and aware of the sites, history, and provided excellent instructions. The musicians and staff did a fabulous job as well. If the temperature outside is over 90 degrees, choose the air conditioned car or you will be hot. They pictures taken should have... More

We stopped here mostly to do some geocaching but ended up walking around and taking in the sites. We didn't ride the train but the depot is nicely done up, the staff is friendly, and the grounds are well kept. While my boys are beginning to outgrown the trains, they still enjoy seeing them and Williams (and Northern Arizona) are... More

We took the ride to the Canyon on a Wednesday morning. Make sure you take the air conditioned one. It might be a little warm if you don't. The train takes off and returns right on time. It was a 2 hour 15 minute ride one way. There is a bathroom on the train. They also have a snack bar... More

Train travel in this country is something of a time warp anyway. Throw in the garb and Wild West entertainment and you're in the mood for your rail trip to the Grand Canyon. There is a very good gift shop and friendly staff. Parking is excellent and there is easy access to I40, about 40 minutes from Flagstaff

Lots of souvineers and history of the area. This is where you buy your tickets for the train ride to the Grand Canyon and catch the train there as well.

A funny "Wild West Show" Cowboys engaged all the kids and audience. The old steam engine was good for photos.

We rode the dome car to the Grand Canyon. The trip up and back was a lot of fun. The attendant in our car (Mimi) was very informative and friendly and the entertainment was fun. Great snacks on the way up and back. The care was very comfortable and Mimi did her best to make everyone feel at home. I... More

We stayed at the Hotel next to the Depot and ate dinners anf breakfasts here. The wuality of the food and service for the price id fantastic. The location is superb if you're travelling into the South Rim by train.... and Williams Main Street (the original Route 66) is only a 5 minute walk for excellent bars and diners as... More
