Conrayway made a great trip even better! She knew so much about the train, surroundings and the canyon history. Everyone should have the opportunity to get such a terrific Attendant! Such a great way to get to the Great Abyss! I will do it again when I get the chance!

From the moment we arrived at the Williams train station we had a fantastic day. We were easily able to park our huge hire car for free. We had purchased coach class tickets before leaving home in the U.K. on the Viator website. It was really easy to collect our tickets and the gentleman on the desk was very informative... More

My grandsons are still talking about their ride to the Grand Canyon. They loved Dapper Dan's jokes and stories on the way to the Grand Canyon. And, the "robbery" on the train. Great experience. And the ride was relaxing for Grandma too.

Staff at hotel and train are awesome. The train ride to the canyon gives you time to sit back and enjoy scenery and spend time with family. The food at the depot was very good for a buffet. My kids say it was the highlight of our vacation.

Great train ride. Staff is attentive and entertaining. A fun way to get to the canyon. So much easier than driving, especially during peak seasons.

From the minute we checked into the Grand Canyon Railway Hotel, to the smallest detail on the train, it was worth every penny! The train hostess (Amber Rose) was so good - she is an absolute gem! Funny, informative, and very helpful. We will definitely be going again.

Great train experience. Exceptional service. Noise level fairly low, making for easy conversation. There are free treats and soft drinks, coffee as well as an easily accessible bar car.
