What people are saying about Williams

This was our 4th Grand Canyon Railroad tour and it was wonderful. The train ride was awesome, and the train staff were all pleasant and entertaining. Everything was clean and well cared for, the snacks on board were plentiful and the entire experience was all that we expected.

Sam is an amazing tour guide who’s passionate about traveling and Grand Canyon history and geology. His enthusiasm rubbed off very positively on rest of the tour group and made for a very exciting fun filled day. Highly recommend taking this tour with Sam.

The train departs "On Time" 8:30 going and 2:30 leaving. When we went the canyon was full of clouds and we couldn't see anything. The train does NOT stick around.

This was a great way to get to the Grand Canyon. The staff made the train ride fun and enjoyable. The ride was about 2.5 hours each way.

Great time, great group, great guide (Malcolm). And an amazing National Park! Thank you.
