Fun with friends
Anna_P, May 2022
The whole train ride was serene and fun. The singing and train robbery added a lot of extra fun too.
Overall a good day
Sherry_B, Apr 2022
We booked the train ride, bus ride and lunch. When we checked in we were able to upgrade to the dome car which turned out to be a very good move since the seats were smaller than I expected and there were open seats in the dome car so we were able to spread out. The lunch is not a buffet, it is a sandwich bag lunch with very few choices. The train ride was very pleasant but we could have done with the afternoon signer have a much lower volume. Highly recommend the bus tour, you see a lot with not a lot of hiking which is a good idea unless you are used to walking around at the higher altitude. Overall a very good experience and you can see a lot in one day booking the full tour.

Viator failed to add bus tour and lunch to our trip despite paying for it. Since Viator is a third party app - no one could help us. HOT lunch was a cold sandwich. Train was great and Grand Canyon awesome.
The train is the best way
Arleen_M, Mar 2022
Taking the train is the best!! Great car ride. First class was worth the extra legroom, quiet ride, snacks, cash bar. Didn’t regret not buying the lunch. The tour bus was awesome. Great information

The robbery on the way home. It was an easy going trip with lots of scenery and stories by the PSA, Dennis. He was most helpful and charming.
Can’t recommend the Grand Canyon Railway enough.
Carol_S, Feb 2022
The train ride was wonderful. First class tickets were well worth the cost. Our host, Rob, couldn’t have been more hospitable and entertaining. The entertainment was so much fun. The Grand Tour of the Canyon was so nice. Great trip.
Viator made a mistake

The railways was great but Viator booked me on a Tour that was not wheelchair accessible. I told them very clearly that I was in a wheelchair and they said everything was wheelchair accessible. It was not
