Owner description: Since 1901, the Grand Canyon Railway and Hotel has been taking passengers on a fabled journey to the heart of one of the seven wonders of the world. Grand Canyon Railway is more than just a mode of transportation: it’s a trip back in time on lovingly restored rail cars with entertaining musicians and the antics of cowboy characters. Out your window, the terrain changes from high desert to prairie, prairie to pine. It’s a view that’s ever-changing until you come across a view so brilliant, it could very well change you. All aboard to the Grand Canyon to make a grand trip grander!

Great trip. Opted for luxury car. Domed great view. Very nice way to spend a day. Skip the buffet lunch not very good. Lots of choices at other restaurants.

This ride is for kids. The train travels at a fraction of its top speed to extend the little shows they put on for the kiddies. The terrain leading up to the canyon is bleak, so there's no scenery to see. The train is full of noisy, misbehaved kids. What a waste of money.

We decided to upgrade to first class passage to Grand Canyon and the observation done on the returning trip to Williams, Arizona. What an enjoyable trip. This is an experience we would probably do only once. There is a Cafe Car with light refreshments. There is also western theme singers, Marshall, train robbers which provide entertainment during the trip.
