Full description
The Grand Canyon is one of the most spectacular “Seven Wonders of the World”! This Grand Canyon Railroad Tour offers you an up-close and personal tour of this inspiring canyon.

Your Grand Canyon Tour starts off with a scenic ride from the Red Rocks of Sedona, through Oak Creek Canyon (noted as one of the top 10 scenic drives in America) and towering Ponderosa Pines of Flagstaff. After this, you will head to the train depot in Williams.

When you board the historic Grand Canyon Railway you will be entertained by cowboys and enjoy the tunes of strolling musicians as the train travels back in time during the scenic 65-mile journey to the canyon. The train offers wonderful views of the San Francisco Peaks and rolls through valleys riddled with wildflowers, dense pine forests, high desert plains, and small canyons. Upgrade your experience with a first-class ticket, which includes oversized seats, big windows, bar service, and complimentary snacks.

Upon arrival at the Grand Canyon, you will have time to explore the views of the canyon and explore the historical buildings of Grand Canyon Village. Afterwards, you will be given time to enjoy lunch on your own (lunch not included) and will rejoin your guide to continue across the south rim heading east. Spend approximately 4 hours in the Grand Canyon National Park. Making your way along the canyon rim, experience the stunning views over the Colorado River Gorge. Climb up to the top of the Watchtower Observatory for magnificent panoramic views of the Grand Canyon.

On the return trip to your hotel, tour the East Rim of Grand Canyon National Park and see various scenic overlooks. Visit the Desert View Watchtower and the historic Cameron trading Post on the Navajo Reservation; one of the finest places to shop for authentic Native American souvenirs. You may also visit The Gallery, home of many breathtaking pieces of fine and historic Native American Arts and Crafts.
