Entertainment was good and is what made the trip worth taking. Keith did a great job narrating and informing. This would have been a 5 star rating if you would have a few golf carts there to assist those of us that have trouble walking the length of the train carrying our large bags full of water and snacks for the day. I was miserable walking over 10 train car lengths to get to mine. Also, the bus tour needs to drop us off at the gift shop level at the end. It was too difficult and long to use ramps to go to the gift shop. I would also appreciate a more honest scientific view of the possible ways of how the canyon was formed. Not all scientists agree with the view presented. Please research other views and present them.


Riding the railway was a great experience. The view was nice. The entertainment and the guide on the train were fun. We had a package which included a buffet lunch and an hour and a half bus tour. The food was convenient and pretty good. The bus tour allowed us a couple of overlook stops which was plenty of time to get good pictures.


We had a great time. Everyone was very friendly. Entertainment was excellent. Jeannie was great. If we come back we will definitely do it again.


We rode in the luxury dome one way to the Grand Canyon. The entertrainment was a little cheesy but was meant to be. I thought the ride would get boring but we enjoyed ourselves and the trip felt like it went quickly. We were allowed to explore all the cars and go outside on the platform. However, I believe that was dependent on which car you rode in. You could explore the cars that cost less than your ticket but not in reverse. Purchasing the the luxury dome ticket was worth the extra money just to be able to explore the entire train. You can just go up for the afternoon, but if you choose to stay overnight they do a great job handling the luggage so you don't have to. You can immediately take off exploring when you arrive and your bags will magically appear in your hotel room that evening.


This was an enjoyable and memorable experience. The coach host was amusing and kind. I appreciated her experience and knowledge of the Grand Canyon and the town of Williams, she also shared helpful tips on do’s and don’ts while at the park. I loved not having to drive into the park and then look for a parking space. It was very pleasant train ride both there and back.


Long - slow - childish stunts. This was part of a package, so I do not know what it cost – – but whatever it was, it is overpriced! For sure, find a different way to reach the room of the canyon.


For older people it was excellent. Entertained on the train and the bus driver was very knowledgeable. The lunch was very average. Hard for diabetics to eat. The conductor was very friendly.


We thoroughly enjoyed this tour! The train ride was great- relaxing and fun, the bus tour was educational with fantastic scenery, lunch was very tasty! Overall, a fabulous experience!!


This was an amazing day trip we rode the Coconino first class car with “Rob” who was fun, full of energy but mostly attentive to all of our needs! While the south rim is spectacular on it’s own, there is no way better to get there and back!


This is an overpriced joke. You can check in early for a $35.00 fee but otherwise you can sit in the lobby with all the other guests waiting for check in time who, like us paid almost $1500 for this package. I used the time to pick up our coupons for meals, the train and the bus tour. The food at the Harvey’s restaurant buffet was really sub par. The seafood newburg tasted like someone opened a can of golden mushroom soup and watered it down too much. The beef tenderloin was almost raw and when I asked for a more well done piece I was told this is it. No offer to cook the pieces a bit more. The pasta station held some promise but the cook did not heat it up enough and it was lukewarm. On the good side, the table wait staff was excellent and attentive. The only bright spot was the omelet the next morning for breakfast. They did a nice job on that. Prior to boarding the train, there is a “Wild West.Show”. Do yourself a favor and pass. Use the time to position yourself towards the front of the boarding line as the mad rush for the observation car takes place. If not, you will sit in your assigned seats and NEVER get a seat in the car you paid extra for. It is first come first serve but no one tells you that. If you are among the ones who miss out, the area under the observation deck is well appointed, comfortable and quiet. Try that area. After arriving at the Grand Canyon, we chose the bus tour that included lunch. This was a big mistake. Lunch was terrible. Pork loin and chicken were barely recognizable as such. I ate held a piece of chocolate cake that tasted like a high school cafeteria special. A word about the bus seating. It is first come first serve BUT, there are four seats in the raised rear section of the bus that are in my opinion unusable. It has a raised slant that requires you to have your knees in your chest. Do not be the last four people on the bus or you will hate it. The bus tour is WAY too short and you make only three stops to get out and view the canyon. It is a waste of both time and money. Do yourself a favor, pass on this experience. It is a complete ripoff.
