Fun for all

Fun time on the train. Our train host Rob was very helpful and entertaining. The cowboy entertainment was a real added bonus, especially for our grandsons. Bus trip around a bit frustrating due to delays and eating up free time. Bus driver was very knowledgeable as guide. Overall worth the day for sure!!!

We booked the train ride, bus ride and lunch. When we checked in we were able to upgrade to the dome car which turned out to be a very good move since the seats were smaller than I expected and there were open seats in the dome car so we were able to spread out. The lunch is not a buffet, it is a sandwich bag lunch with very few choices. The train ride was very pleasant but we could have done with the afternoon signer have a much lower volume. Highly recommend the bus tour, you see a lot with not a lot of hiking which is a good idea unless you are used to walking around at the higher altitude. Overall a very good experience and you can see a lot in one day booking the full tour.

Viator failed to add bus tour and lunch to our trip despite paying for it. Since Viator is a third party app - no one could help us. HOT lunch was a cold sandwich. Train was great and Grand Canyon awesome.

Taking the train is the best!! Great car ride. First class was worth the extra legroom, quiet ride, snacks, cash bar. Didn’t regret not buying the lunch. The tour bus was awesome. Great information

The train ride was wonderful. First class tickets were well worth the cost. Our host, Rob, couldn’t have been more hospitable and entertaining. The entertainment was so much fun. The Grand Tour of the Canyon was so nice. Great trip.

This was the most wonderful trip we have ever taken. The train ride was fabulous! There was a train robbery, musicians to entertain us and Josh to see to our every need. Then we arrived at the Grand Canyon and my breath was taken away. WOW! This is a must do trip.

Non-compliance with masks ruined the trip.
Eric_J
, Sep 2021
I made an informed decision to book this trip because masks were required. People all around were not wearing their masks correctly or at all which made the trip unemployable. The train attendant announced that people were required to wear masks, but one male guest in particular chose not to, and the train attendant could only do so much. The company needs to enforce the rules; just like with no smoking, non-compliance with mask wearing should get you kicked off the train. Also we got a sack lunch with dried out sandwiches instead of the buffet lunch we paid for. The cowboys put on a nice show. The entertainment was good.

We weren't able to board the train. My autistic grandson had a bad episode before getting on. I have asked for a refund since I had spoke with someone when booking and explained that this might happen.

Very disappointing
Robin R
, Sep 2019
Disappointed with our experience. Speakers, at the performance before boarding the train, were not working well, therefore we couldn't hear what was being said. Buffet lunch was cafeteria food at best. The bus tour was a joke. We spent more time boarding than we did seeing the canyon. Actual time spent viewing the canyon was 15-20 minutes total! No time to visit the sites. We spent over $300 for 2 people to experience the canyon for the first time and only got to view for less than 30 minutes! We had to drive over an hour the next day so that we could return and see the canyon and the sites.
