Staff was extremely nice and very entertaining. Train trip had a lady playing accordion and singing, and on the way back we had a guitarist who played whatever songs you wanted him to. Lots of fun humor to make the trip seem shorter. The Train attendant took time to get to know everyone. Train had a cafe that offered chips, sodas, ice-cream at nominal charges. Bus tour guide was very informative and bus took us places only hikers and cyclists were allowed to go. He showed us a 30 year old agave that blooms only once every 30 years off the beaten track. We saw beautiful sights of the Grand Canyon with the green Colorado River below.Trip was very organized and well planned. We opted for no lunch and had an hour and a half to eat at restaurant of our choosing. Bus guide pushed the Arizona Room which had good service but mediocre food 2 tacos, Caesar Salad, Turkey sandwich 11-12 each. The whole thing started at 9 am and we didn't get back to train station until 5:30 or 6, so it was a long day but worth it.
We had so much fun on this train, the time flew by. All of the people working on train that day had so much information and knowledge. We would recommend it to anyone including familys.
The Train adventure was great. We six put it at the top of the list for our enjoyment. The trip is wel worth the money, and we will bring grandchildren back to experience the train ride, and Grand Canyon beauty.
This was the perfect trip with our 83yo mother. The train was very comfortable and the bank robbery was a hoot. Enjoyed the entire day. Would have liked having more time allotted for the shops at the end of the day.
What a great way to spend Thanksgiving weekend! I recommended this hotel and tour to anyone who will listen! It was amazing. The only item I would change was not to participate in the lunch they offered in the package. There is a wonderful restaurant we could have eaten at instead. Other than that it didn't deter from our wonderful experience!
So Much Fun and a great way to see the Canyon with the Bus taking you to the right spots
Really great experience! Fantastic staff,nice refreshment on the trip there and back. Grand Canyon itself was unbelievable and needs to be seen in person as photo and videos cannot describe this amazing place. The surprise on the way back was tacky but fun for the kids.
We had a great time. My family wants to do this trip again and again.
Train ride great peaceful experience with all the changing scenery along the way. Got right on the bus for a tour of the rim which was breathtaking. Had plenty of time to explore the gift shop, restaurants and hotels before returning to Williams. Great trip and way to visit the Canyon as a day trip. Hiking and biking was not what we were looking for so this was perfect for us.
Well worth the money. The train ride was great, the tour informative. The food was good. This is definitely the way to see this natural wonder when you only have a day to enjoy it.
Amber Rose was our guide and she was fabulous. Did a great job! and we enjoyed the trip very much. We will definitely do the railway tour again.
The Grand Canyon tour was very well organized, staff was very professional, and it couldn't have been any better.
Your staff goes out of there way to make us enjoy the experience, and relax. Was absolutely the way to see the canyon. Your web site can be confusing. Did not explain options well. Was told I could use e voucher and was not possible. Time and location should be clearer. Other than that you will see me again soon.
We have already recommended this to several of our friends. This is the ONLY way to see the Grand Canyon. We took the Grand Tour first class trip. Jackie, our concierge, on the train, was just the best! She took the time to get to know everyone and visit with each of us. The entertainment was wonderful! The snacks were great. The bus tour was great. I have nothing bad to say about the whole trip. I didn't have to fight for parking or walk 100 mile to see the canyon. I was able to just sit back and relax, which is what a vacation is supposed to be about. Don't wait - - - Book this trip!
Great tour! Would not have travelled to the Grand Canyon any other way! The train trip was awesome - the entertainment and snacks were perfect! We rode First Class and it was well worth it. If you have kids, I suggest bring some activities to keep them busy. The bus tour was fabulous and our tour guide was so knowledgeable. I highly recommend the GC Railway Package!
What a great day on the train trip. Entertainment on the way to and from the Canyon. And what a surprise on the way back. I won't say what it was in case people read this review and it spoils the surprise, but what fantastic fun we had. All in all our group would highly recommend this trip.
The Grand Canyon Railway package was relaxing and enjoyable. The train robbery was cheesy but the overall experience was educational. I highly recommend the package with the bus tour of the canyon! We learned a lot and had a great time. Our car Porter was a hoot, I only wish I could remember her name!
