"Grand Canyon by train" Williams Things to Do Tip by HeidiR

Williams Things to Do: 13 reviews and 33 photos

If you would like to get the train to the Grand Canyon you must go to the depot in Williams. The train departs daily at 10 AM and returns to Williams at approximately 6 PM. You must get to the train depot by 9 AM in order to get your tickets and see a show.

While on board you will be entertained by musicians and train robbers dressed up by cowboys. There are various prices for the train, ranging from economy about 60 dollars to first class expensive. Look out for coupons for 20% off the economy fare.

Take several dollar notes as all the entertainment people expect tips.

The train journey will take approximately 2 hrs and then you get about 3 hrs at the canyon. Yes it is quicker to drive there.

I would recommend this trip if you have been to the canyon many times and would like a different journey. Also recommend this trip if you enjoy country and western songs.
