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...

Buffet in morning is muffins, fresh fruit, juices and buffet afternoon/ evening is veggie platter, cheese, crackers, dip, and drinks.

My husband and I and our two sons, ages 11 and 8, booked the overnight bus/train trip which picked us up in Las Vegas and delivered us to Williams, Arizona for the train trip to the Grand Canyon the next day, and then we boarded a bus back to Las Vegas later that same day. The first disappointment was arriving... More

We brought all of our kids and Grandkids and everyone wore their pajamas. We sang and danced the whole way back after visiting the North Pole. Everyone agreed it was a magical experience for all of the kids (and parents)!

We were first timers for the whole Polar Express Experience. We had 7 in our group from age 3-71. All of us enjoyed the experience. We did experience some difficulty with navigation when it came to the events and activities but they do give you a map.

I want to express great appreciation and gratitude to Keith and Dee (sorry I do not know their last names) for making our train experience so dear and memorable for our whole family. Our family purchased tickets at different times, but thought we would be in the same car by using the same reservation number. When we picked our tickets... More

Had the good fortune to be a passenger on Amber Rose's carriage. Amber made the whole trip enjoyable her knowledge quick wit and ability to make each and every passenger feel like a long lost friend was amazing. The train hold up was a particular highlight and the canyon was breathtaking. If you are anywhere near to this attraction on... More
