I think if you have kids who need entertained on the trip to the Grand Canyon, or you just want to relax heading over there, this is the thing to do! We loved the food at the El Tovar and the views from the restaurant are amazing.

Good way to visit the grand canyon south rim of the park. It was entertaining. Our conductor was fun and informative. It is a great adventure especially if you have younger kids. I enjoyed watching them. They were having a blast!
Great way to see the Grand Canyon

A great way to see the beauty of Arizona in comfort! Rob was our guide on the train, he was personable and funny and made the trip enjoyable. The town of Williams is quaint and we enjoyed strolling around there.
A Great Way to See the Grand Canyon

This was a fun experience for my wife and I. Seeing the Grand Canyon is great, but the experience of riding the train made it even better. The entire process was very well organized. Appropriate instructions were given as applicable. We had "first class" tickets, which were nice. The food included was snack type food not a meal so be aware of that. Rob was our tour associate. He was great and obviously loves his job. He did a good job of sharing details about the area and the canyon and was full of dad jokes. We can't wait to do this again.
Amazing experience!

Train ride was a bit long, with little to no visual stimulation. The staff was wonderful, attentive, caring and funny.
Well worth the trip.
Mark_C, Jul 2023
The train ride with a great host and musical entertainment plus the bush rangers and the hold-up were all highlights. Plus the Grand Canyon of course! Take some lunch with you and avoid the queues!
Great trip overall

4 hours looking at the Grand Canyon was way too long. 2 hours would have been a sufficient amount of time.
