This was one the best trips we have ever taken! The train ride was lots of fun with entertainment along the way, food at the lodge was good and the bus tour was great!
A wonderful day out to see one of the wonders of the earth, this is a not to missed trip,take the coach journey as well with a meal included. TRULY AMAZING,WOW.Thanks VIATOR
I've been fortunate to visit the South Rim on several occasions. By far, the Grand Canyon Railway experience was the most relaxing. We loved the natural beauty of sightseeing from the train and had plenty of time to enjoy a walk along the S. Rim at the Grand Canyon. The staff aboard the train was entertaining and very attentive. We would recommend this tour and do it again!
The staff aboard the train kept us entertained to/from the Canyon. We couldn't believe how fast the day went by. We also loved the quaint town of Williams - very friendly people We are looking forward to our next trip!
I enjoyed every moment aboard the train and at the S. Rim. The entertainment on the train was the best. I would definitely do this tour again!
The trip was spectacular. The entertainment on the train was awesome. This is one of the few trains that employ professional musicians. The service was excellent. Of course the best part was the beautiful scenery!
What there's only 5 stars!! There should be at least 10 stars. This was a gift to my husband, he's never been on a train. Every bit of the trip really impressed my husband, the entertainment, the hostess, the robbers and the tour bus driver were well informed, and the bus tour was just about the best tour we've ever taken.
So much fun! Robert was great. He saw to everyone's needs. He made everyone feel welcome and he was glad to share his knowledge. The train robbery was terrific! The entertainment was fun for all, young and older! I will do this again when I return for another visit! Great experience for reasonable price.

This is a great way to get to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon without having to drive! The day started with the wild west gun show, then the pleasant journey by historic train to the canyon. The station is almost right at the rim which is perfect. This package includes a guided bus tour along the rim – to places cars are not allowed to go (in summer). The views were nothing short of spectacular! The staff on the train were very accommodating and I have absolutely nothing to fault on this day trip.
I’m so glad our family took this trip. This has to be the most relaxing way to get to the Grand Canyon National Park. The ride was at a very casual pace – not rushed at all! The tour at the rim was great – all a very smooth transition from one thing to the next. We had ample time at each lookout point, and plenty of free time at the main depot area before boarding the train for the ride back to Williams. Highly recommend to anyone!
A totally wonderful experience the train staff were outgoing and friendly, the entertainers were dynamite. I upgraded to the observation car after booking, and highly recommend that option as well. Train trip went quickly great scenery, antelope, bobcat, etc. in sight. Food was great, seats comfortable and no hassles with driving or parking at the canyon! Bus tour guide was very helpful and knowledgeable, we stopped at 3 spots on the canyon rim for short explorations 20 min or so each Very high winds and cold 49 degrees last week in May! when I went so be aware. All in all, a great trip!
Every detail was taken care of perfectly from the rail trip, to the hot buffet, to the bus tour at the Grand Canyon. I will recommend this trip to everyone and I will very likely do this excursion again!
The train ride to the Grand Canyon and back was great. It took longer than driving but I saw more than I would have if I had driven. Also there were no park fees to pay or gas. The tour was great! The guide/driver knew a lot and was very willing to share. The stops were breathtaking and very worth it.
We were very pleased with our trip. In fact we're planning on another one soon and plan to use Viator again. Well done!!!
Very comfortable ride and interesting info about the park, the animals, trees, and historical tidbits. My favorite part was the motor coach tour taken after we disembarked from the train. Our motor coach driver and tour guide, Larry, was very knowledgeable about the history of the Canyon, its animals, Native Americans, and the flora and fauna. His detailed knowledge and friendly personality made this much more than a sightseeing tour.
It was a wonderful trip. Everyone was so nice. I would recommend this trip to everyone.
This tour was well organised and structured. Our only disappointment was the length of time actually spent viewing and being at the Grand Canyon itself. It felt very rushed
with the exception of the pre-train shoot out show, the tour was very good. the pre train show was too crowded and quite lame. the cafeteria lunch was not worth purchasing, but the first class train accommodation was very nice. the train and shuttle guides were very good.
We missed the show at the beginning due to the length of the drive, but as soon as we got there all staff were amazingly hospitable and super friendly. The train ride was enjoyable with the guide's little anecdotes and stories along the way. Once we arrived at Grand Canyon we enjoyed a really nice buffet with a variety of foods to suit everyone's needs. Our motorcoach tour guide JD was extremely knowledgeable and friendly and had lots of information to share with us and was more than pleased to answer any questions at the stops and point out extra stuff (like fossilized rocks on the pathway, etc). Although we got to make 3 stops from our bus tour, the tour ended back at the train station with a really awkward period of time before we could board the train again. It was too short to go back and explore for yourself and make it back in time to the train departure point and there was nothing to do (no shops or anything) readily by that could be accessed before departure. The last 35 minutes before departure seemed a bit wasted, I would have preferred to make another bus stop or had longer stops at each point. Overall, spectacular views, great information and a super nice way to see the Grand Canyon. The train ride home has a little surprise for you that was fun and enjoyable, our 28 month old daughter loved every part of the day.
