Step aboard the Grand Canyon Railway for a trip to the majestic Grand Canyon you'll never forget. Feel the rumble of a vintage train as the engine chugs 65-miles (approximately 105 km) across the beautiful Northern Arizona countryside. The train offers kaleidoscopic views of the San Francisco Peaks and rolls through valleys adorned in wild flowers, dense pine forests, high desert plains and small canyons.

The excitement begins at the historic 1908 Williams Depot. Before the train departs you will be entertained by a Wild West shootout featuring the Cataract Creek Gang in an outdoor theater. Shop in one of two gift shops, or enjoy a hearty buffet breakfast (not included) before departure at the Grand Depot Cafe next to the depot.

Then, hear the train whistle pierce the fresh morning air, beckoning passengers for a trip on the old iron horse to the Grand Canyon. Uniformed coach attendants provide you with white-gloved courtesy and service. Aboard the train, enjoy the tunes of strolling musicians who conduct sing-a-longs, an Old West train robbery, and the antics of western characters as they recreate train travel as it was back in 1901.

The train arrives at the historic 1910 Grand Canyon Depot, the only remaining log depot still in operation in the United States. Buildings like the El Tovar Hotel, Hopi House and Bright Angel Lodge salute arriving guests as you pull into the station and disembark from the train. A narrated motorcoach rim tour of the Grand Canyon National Park enhances your visit by escorting you to the most scenic overlooks of the canyon. Upgrade to include a hot buffet lunch!

This trip was well worth the ride. 2 hours to the train, 2 hours to the Grand Canyon.....The bus tour to the Canyon overlooks was great. A little more time would have been better, we should have stayed over night. I wish there had been a bathroom on the bus or at each overlook spot. Its a lot drier there than at home, so I was trying to stay hydrated....
The train ride to and from was great. Good family fun! Kathy with a K was fantastic! Very friendly and accommodating. We played some interesting games on the way back to pass the time. The roving Singers were very talented. I'm a bit old to believe in gunslingers robbing the train, however, it was a fun diversion! Had a wonderful time!
I'm thinking of a fun job for retirement...hmmm :

This was the best way to see the Grand Canyon. They treated you first class from the time you arrived. They had a Wild West show to start off the morning. The train ride was full of entertainment and history as we ventured through to the Canyon. The train let you off right inside the Canyon. No need to try and find a parking place. Our tour bus was waiting for us and gave us a nice 1-1/2 hour tour throughout the Canyon. On the way home the outlaws from our western show held up the train. Very entertaining.

This train trip to the Grand Canyon was the best of all vacations! An old West skit with real cowboys starts it all off and then a trip of a lifetime ride on a train, and of course that is just the beginning I won't ruin the surprise but you just have to book this for your and your family will be thrilled. Even if we had not got to the Grand Canyon the train ride was the best of it all. Great trip, great service, great value for the money.
