What people are saying about Grand Canyon Village

Took my three grandkids On this train ride. They loved it. It was a little confusing about the tickets. I did purchase vouchers ahead of time so I did not know I needed to go back through the line and get tickets. Be aware. Train staff was wonderful. Food on the train was great. Train robbery was fun for the kids as well

My 19 year old grandson and I took the tour! The Grand Canyon Railroad was absolutely the best way to go to the Canyon. It was comfortable and entertaining. Even my 19 year old throughly enjoyed the experience.

We like the funny skit, robbery in the train, entertainment during the ride, availability of snacks for sale in the train and we even saw elks and a family of wild horses (how awesome is that).

Awesome Tour Guide. Very friendly and knowledgeable. He really made the tour excellent. The train was informative and entertaining as well.

It gave us a totally different perspective on visiting the Grand Canyon
