Our train car attendant Sharon was awesome. She was friendly, energetic, and very knowledgeable, sharing history and stories along the train route. The Canyon was breathtaking.
Grand Canyon Railway is the only way to go

This was the most wonderful trip we have ever taken. The train ride was fabulous! There was a train robbery, musicians to entertain us and Josh to see to our every need. Then we arrived at the Grand Canyon and my breath was taken away. WOW! This is a must do trip.
Grand Canyon must!

Excellent experience from start to finish! Highly recommend for a trip to the Grand Canyon, paired with the bus tour and lunch, was a perfect stress free day!
Non-compliance with masks ruined the trip.
, Sep 2021
I made an informed decision to book this trip because masks were required. People all around were not wearing their masks correctly or at all which made the trip unemployable. The train attendant announced that people were required to wear masks, but one male guest in particular chose not to, and the train attendant could only do so much. The company needs to enforce the rules; just like with no smoking, non-compliance with mask wearing should get you kicked off the train. Also we got a sack lunch with dried out sandwiches instead of the buffet lunch we paid for. The cowboys put on a nice show. The entertainment was good.

wish we could have got on

We weren't able to board the train. My autistic grandson had a bad episode before getting on. I have asked for a refund since I had spoke with someone when booking and explained that this might happen.
Great Ride
, Oct 2019
Very pleasant ride. The staff was excellent. The entertainment going up and back was very good. Tina, our car hostess, was exceptional. The bus tour and lunch also very good!
Very disappointing

Disappointed with our experience. Speakers, at the performance before boarding the train, were not working well, therefore we couldn't hear what was being said. Buffet lunch was cafeteria food at best. The bus tour was a joke. We spent more time boarding than we did seeing the canyon. Actual time spent viewing the canyon was 15-20 minutes total! No time to visit the sites. We spent over $300 for 2 people to experience the canyon for the first time and only got to view for less than 30 minutes! We had to drive over an hour the next day so that we could return and see the canyon and the sites.

A good way to spend a day with the finale at the Grand Canyon! Family had a great time with excellent, knowledgeable staff that provided a great experience. Make sure you are in an air conditioned car though...
