Sedona/Flagstaff: Grand Canyon Tour & First-Class Train Ride

1. Sedona/Flagstaff: Grand Canyon Tour & First-Class Train Ride

Your day begins with a pickup at your hotel in Sedona or Flagstaff or the nearby Village of Oak Creek from where you will enjoy incredible views on your way to the Williams train depot. Board the historic century-old Grand Canyon Railway and be entertained by cowboy characters. Enjoy the tunes of strolling musicians as train travel from the early 1900s is recreated on the 65-mile scenic journey to the canyon.   The train offers wonderful views of the San Francisco Peaks and rolls through valleys filled with wildflowers, dense pine forests, high desert plains, and small canyons. The Grand Canyon Railway is still one of the best ways to experience the old west. The train arrives just steps from the Grand Canyon’s South Rim where you'll have free time to shop, dine, or just take in the incredible canyon views. Then, your guide will meet you at the bus and take you to the East Rim for a few more great lookout locations. As you drive out of the east exit, you’ll drive along the Little Colorado River Gorge into the Navajo Nation. Stop at the historic Cameron Trading Post where you’ll have the opportunity to browse the Native American artwork and shop for souvenirs before returning to the starting point of the tour by air-conditioned van following a great day in the west.

What people are saying about Williams

My husband and I took my mom on this trip for her 73rd birthday. This was a great way to see the Grand Canyon and learn some great facts without her having to do a ton of walking. The Mercedes touring van was incredibly nice and comfortable. Our tour guide was polite, informative, and always made sure that we were getting the trip we wanted. Taking the train up to the canyon was a nice little added fun. Our tour guide made sure to give us detailed directions on where and when to meet back up! It made for a long, fun day that my mom hasn't stopped talking about!

Our tour from Sedona to the Grand Canyon was exceptional. Sheldon was a world class tour guide. He was a walking encyclopedia. The Grand Canyon itself was just, WOW. Sheldon took us to all the amazing view points and found seclusion from tourists. We were able to truly appreciate the tranquility and quiet. Sheldon also knew all the photo spots. Overall, can’t recommend this tour enough.

We enjoyed the train ride, with the entertainment. We had the Rock n Roll Cowboy singing for us, and he was fantastic. One thing I did not care for is stopping at the trading post. I can do that on my own.

Guide was great. Loved the train ride. Grand Canyon is truly awesome

Nice staff, good snacks, comfy ride & good entertainment.
