Step aboard the Grand Canyon Railway for a trip to the majestic Grand Canyon you'll never forget. Feel the rumble of a vintage train as the engine chugs 65-miles (approximately 105 km) across the beautiful Northern Arizona countryside.

What a great experience! Felt totally safe through the whole day. Everyone was seated at least six feet apart. Masks must be worn unless eating or drinking. We started the event with a funny cowboy show. We boarded right on time. Our seats were on the Mary Colter, the dome car.

We really enjoyed taking the Grand Canyon Railway to the Grand Canyon from Williams. The trip was a little longer than it would be to drive but it was so nice and relaxing. We went during the pandemic and everything was very well done. I felt very safe with everyone in masks
