This Grand Canyon Railway adventure tour starts at Williams Depot in Arizona. Check in and, before boarding your train, watch a fun Wild West shootout re-enactment in an outdoor theater.

Then, aboard your train, settle into your seat and get ready to journey across Arizona’s northern countryside to the Grand Canyon National Park. As you ride, musicians will stroll by to entertain and actors will perform a faux old-time train robbery.

Once you arrive at the canyon, get off your train and board a motor coach for a trip touring the South Rim.

If you’ve upgraded to include lunch, enjoy your meal at the Maswik Lodge after the rim tour.

Your Grand Canyon tour ends back at Williams Depot after your return train ride.

With so many different ways to see the Grand Canyon, it can be difficult to plan a trip and pick your mode of transport. This Grand Canyon Railway tour makes it easy and allows you to see some of the most scenic views the same way people did back in 1901—by train. Plus, you can pick from two seating options and upgrade to add lunch at the Maswik Lodge inside Grand Canyon National Park.
  • Travel the way people have since 1901 during this Grand Canyon Railway tour
  • Take a rim tour by motor coach once you reach Grand Canyon National Park
  • Choose from coach or first-class seating on the Grand Canyon train 
  • Upgrade to add lunch at the Maswik Lodge, nestled in a pine forest

Never again, would not recommend this to anyone ever

Very disappointed in the experience. Train ride was ruined by the relentless attempt at comedy and "jokes" by train staff. They seem to have the perception they are professional comedians and insist on constant jokes/banter that were not the least humorous or entertaining. If you...More

This is the only way to travel to The Canyon and the Deluxe Dome Car is the only class to take. On the return trip we used the downstairs deluxe Parlour Car and the two gave us the feeling of being a Rail Baron. It...More

Great Trip to the Grand Canyon

The package including hotel, meals, train and bus tour at the Grand Canyon is the best way to go. It is hassle free. Keep in mind you will not be in a major city so do not expect "first class". If you set your expectations...More
