Awesome, enjoyable and wonderful!

Must do! Let someone else do the driving! Enjoy sites you cannot see from the road and let the bartender take care of you!

My friend and I had a great time. The weather was crazy, however, we took the bus tour which saved us from much of the rain and hail. The tour was very informative and the train ride was very relaxing with beautiful scenery. Everyone was very nice.The hotel is very nice and the live entertainment on the train and during... More

We LOVED the Polar Express experience! It was the first time going and it was a blast. A great start to the holiday season. The train workers were so friendly as were the people at the ticket counter. A very memorable time was had by the whole family.

The experience of the Polar Express with our grandkids was wonderful. They were engaged and entertained the entire trip. Then when Santa arrived, they didn't know what to do with themselves.

Very nice going on the train. You should get on a tour once you get off the train. We had no idea you should get on a tour as we were not advised. We wasted time figuring where to go and what to do. If they had options and told you before you got off the train that would be... More

What a great time of year to experience the Grand Canyon train ride. Next time we will stay one night at the rim. We adored the early Christmas decorations and found the staff very accommodating. Amber Rose was a delight!

It would have been nice to have been told there were other selections besides first class. We had our son & his wife with us & I might have chosen a different class to ride in.

If you like the idea of train travel, beautiful scenery and western themed entertainment and atmosphere, a trip on the Grand Canyon Railway is for you! We traveled in comfort in the dome car and had spectacular views of the countryside, the forests, and then the sunset on the return trip to Williams. Fruits, cheese and pastries were served during...

We had a wonderful time at the Polar Express! We had an adult child 3 teens and 2 young children and they all enjoyed it. The little town of Williams AZ was also great to explore. We will be back to do the Grand Canyon tour. I recommend the Polar Express!

It was our (myself, wife, and 2 young boys) first trip to the Grand Canyon and Xanterra parks really made it a memorable one. We got the limited tour (where we stayed one night at the grand canyon railway hotel in Williams, had a buffet dinner, had a buffet breakfast, enjoyed the wild west show, took the train to the...
