  • A must do if ya can, plus saves slot of driving on the one side of the canyon. I did not make it to the other side because I wasted hours just admiring the natures beauty from the side I was on. Enjoy everyone.!
  • The train ride was so relaxing in the air conditioned cars. We were treated to history and facts as we rode along. On the way to and from the Grand Canyon we were treated to music and jokes. Then on the way home we lived a historic train robbery. The ticket office was exceptionally helpful after our unexpected emergency. The ladies in the gift shops were so friendly and helpful. We cannot thank them enough for their hospitality. Put this on your bucket list for sure.
