Suba a bordo del Grand Canyon Railway y descubra el majestuoso Gran Cañón de forma inolvidable. Sienta el traqueteo de un tren antiguo cuya locomotora atraviesa aproximadamente 105 km (65 millas) de la bella campiña de la Arizona septentrional. El trayecto en tren le ofrece unas vistas caleidoscópicas de los picos de San Francisco y recorre valles adornados con flores silvestres y densos pinares, planicies desérticas y pequeños cañones.
We really enjoyed our day on the train and viewing Grand Canyon. We choose 1st class section because we wanted extra leg room, but the photos online which help describe the experience show a glass door seating area which is what I thought we were getting. Beware, 1st class doesn’t include this as it’s a special car section you would need to pay extra for in advance. However, the bus service to the sites and bus driver commentary was excellent. He explained when we got to certain sites we would have x amount of time and where to go. Also, the buffet he explained to us very good. Overall we had amazing trip and not driving our car into the park saved time from walking and made it more relaxing.
In our opinion, this is the best way to see the Grand Canyon. One gets an enjoyable train ride while being entertained both ways, a courtesy bus tour of the Canyon where we saw the canyon from three different locations. We purchased the lunch option and were driven to the restaurant for a buffet lunch. This was an all day event with little walking required and filled with, in addition to the wonderful sites of the Grand Canyon ( we spent around 4 hours at the canyon) enjoyable entertainment on the rail trip. It is well worth the money.
This was a really, really great trip! The people on the train were so fun, very professional, friendly and great at their job!! The food was great, too. I would highly recommend this as the best way to see the Grand Canyon!!
We had Nicholas in Car A as our tourguide. What a great young personality! Very funny, very engaged with everyone in our car on both the trip to the park and the return trip. Nick is a true 'gem'. The only thing that became a little irritating was all the different 'players' coming through the car that worked for tips. Guitar player on the way there, banjo player on the way back, train robbers . . a little too much. I think it would be better if the company included these and pay them from into the price of the trip, rather than have them working for tips.
