What To Expect
Then it’s all aboard. The Grand Canyon Railway has been transporting passengers on a journey to one of the seven natural wonders of the world since 1901. This iconic train is more than just a mode of transportation, however. It’s a trip back in time to what many consider the most incredible place on Earth. Experience white-gloved service with roaming musicians and sing-a-longs.
Arrive at the historic Grand Canyon Depot, one of only three remaining log depots known to have been constructed in the United States. The landmark El Tovar Hotel, Hopi House gift shop and Bright Angel Lodge hotel complex greet guests as they arrive. Feel free to explore and join a narrated motor coach tour of Grand Canyon National Park that travels to the most scenic overlooks of the canyon, providing guests with the ultimate scenic experience.
Upgrade and include a hot buffet lunch at Maswik Lodge, nestled in a Ponderosa pine forest. On your return journey, you'll be part of an Old West train robbery!
