The train ride was very relaxing and enjoyable even though the terrain isn't much to see. The combination of the train excursion, the village at the Grand Canyon and then the Canyon views tour was a great balance of sightseeing. A safe and convenient way to see a lot without doing any driving!

Had a brilliant day out on the Grand Canyon Railroad excursion, from the time the guide picked us up at our hotel until the time he dropped us off. Good ride up to williams on mini-bus then transferred onto Grand Canyon Train, where we were entertained by the marshall and a singer/guitarist who also told brilliant jokes At Grand canyon we were met by our tour guide who showed us around the south rim and gave us plenty of information about the history of the Grand Canyon. He was very well informed and took his time explaining everything. Good packed lunch. So all in all it was a thoroughly good day.

I took my son on a father-son trip and it was fantastic! My son was a little disappointed in the speed of the train, but he quickly changed his tune when the various musicians and actors came through our car to entertain. The tour of the Grand Canyon itself is just thorough enough to get you excited about going back. You could spend days there and see something different everyday. Overall, I highly recommend this trip if you have children with you.

We loved the train trip and bus tour at the rim. The lunch meal left a little to be desired.

This trip is definitely worth doing. Make sure you get the book the tour operator recommends. It points out plenty of areas of historical interest as well as things to look for on the route. I found the staff to be very friendly and upbeat.
