We had a great time. The guide on the bus tour was fantastic, very informative. On the train the guides were pleasant and offered many interesting facts about the area that the train traveled through. Want to take the grand kids on the Polar Express in December.
This was our first visit to the Grand Canyon and we had a tight time frame so this was a "perfect" way to experience the majestic beauty of the canyon without having to worry about parking, if you're making a "wrong" turn or where you're going to eat. We set out on the train from Williams, AZ--very relaxing, and I was finally able to enjoy the scenery after a 27 hr car drive there! We booked first-class both ways on the train and it was worth the reclining seats and extra leg room! Once at the canyon we loaded onto our bus--first stop was the Buffet Lunch! Pretty basic but there was no waiting in any line so we were off to see what we came to see within a half hour!! The bus took us to two different areas of the south rim where we were able to spend about a half hour at each site--breath-taking views!! There was still about an hour of "free" time left once the bus tour was over so plenty of time to continue exploring the south rim and a visit to the gift shops! I would definitely recommend this tour if you're a first-time visitor to the Grand Canyon!
Our trip was absolutely awesome. I've been to the Grand Canyon a couple of times but taking the train was worth every penny. It started out with a Wild West show that actually continued on the train ride to and fro. We then boarded the train. Got a wonderful view of the country side including wild life animals. Our guide on the train was very informative and funny. They had entertainment on the trip, the young men playing and singing were incredibly talented. After arriving at the Grand Canyon we boarded the bus and he took us to lunch which was delicious and filling. We then boarded the bus where Oscar, our tour guide gave a trip around the south rim with a few scenic stops. Oscar was funny and very informative. The train trip back was exciting as they had a train robbery. Very interactive trip with lots of laughs. I suggest doing taking this trip, it's worth it!!
We had a fantastic time! Train ride was amazing and the people working on the train were always aware of our needs. Once we got to the Grand Canyon, the bus tour was a great idea and we were given plenty of time at each stop to enjoy the views! Our bus tour guide did a great job.
We had so much fun! The train ride was awesome, such majestic views (before we even got to the Grand Canyon). Once at the Grand Canyon we were overcome with the "grandness" of it all!
What a great experience! We took the train from Williams, AZ on New Years Day with our four children (ages 15, 17, 19, and 20). They LOVED it! The train ride was perfect (we opted for first class which was really nice especially with the drinks and snacks provided). Mimi took great care of us and the entertainers were really fun. The bus tour of the Grand Canyon was a wonderful way to spend the few hours we had there and was well worth the money. It was an awesome trip, and we would highly recommend it!
A great trip from start to finish, we had a VERY informative guide who really knew his stuff. there was plenty of time at each stop to enjoy the views and take pictures. as we were a small group we didn't have a buffet as such we just had whatever food we required from the food court which was alll good. the train was comfortable and the entertainment made the time go by. i would recommend this trip to anyone.
Our tour guide was Amber Rose and she was excellent. Made the whole experience wonderful
for not only my group but everyone else on the train was very impressed with her knowledge and
fun loving personality. She is excellent!!!
We loved it. The train was so comfortable. Our conductor was very informative and we loved the
entertainment on the train coming and going.
The experience on the train was very enjoyable. Our car hosts were very entertaining and knowledgeable and made the trip interesting.
Loved this tour! We booked first class, as well as the coach tour. Train was very comfortable and fun, while the bus tour was informative, comfortable and easy. Plenty of time to look at the canyon. Would recommend this to everyone!
This was by far one of the best tour trips I have taken. The friendliness of the Railway staff and helpfulness is amazing. The TSA workers Pam at the ticket counter and Kathy on the train where awesome. I would highly recommend this adventure to all. In fact, I'm planning my next trip to the south west rim.
Everything turned out wonderful. The train trip was definitely the way to travel to the Grand Canyon. Our granddaughters enjoyed it thoroughly and even remarked that "the trip to the Grand Canyon" was the highlight of their trip to Arizona. The tour bus operator was excellent and kept us well informed and amused on our tour of the Grand Canyon . I would highly recommend this as a great way to sit back and relax and enjoy the Grand Canyon.
