Grand Canyon Railway

The Grand Canyon Railway tour is another majestical experience you should take full advantage of when you visit the Grand Canyon. It’s a really fun and safe adventure for the entire family.

Grand Canyon Railway Tour Details

On this journey you will feel the rumble of a vintage train going at 65-miles as you chug through the beautiful countryside of northern Arizona. You will also enjoy breathtaking views of the San Francisco Peaks. The train will continue through the valleys, the small canyons, dense pine forests and the high desert plains.

The journey will start at 1908 Williams Depot. Immediately before departure you and your family will witness an entertaining Wild West shootout in the outdoor theater. There are a couple of gift shops by the station, as well as a place to pick up some breakfast.

While you board, you will hear the whistle of the train piercing the fresh morning air, preparing passengers for a trip on the old iron horse to the Grand Canyon. The train will have uniformed attendants that will provide you with white-gloved courtesy and high levels of service. The train will be filled with tunes of strolling musicians who conduct sing-a-longs, an Old West train robbery and the antics of western characters as they recreate train travel as it was back in 1901.

The train will arrive at the historic 1910 Grand Canyon Depot, which is the only remaining log depot still in operation in the United States. Buildings like the Bright Angel Lodge, El Tovar Hotel and Hopi House salute arriving guests as you pull into the station and disembark from the train. A narrated motor coach rim tour of the Grand Canyon National Park enhances your visit by escorting you to the most scenic overlooks of the canyon. Additional upgrades are available.
