  • Amazing staff, seats, and views. Surprisingly clean and tidy. Four hour round trip with amazing wildlife, rock formations and music. Insanely good food for a train station. Try to get tickets for the cottonwood car. The staff are very friendly, you can ask them anything and they won't judge you. This is the ultimate Arizona experience, DO NOT MISS THIS!!!
  • Excellent. Wonderful and varied scenery. Food great and narration of things of note very informative. Each Pullman car has an open companion car to facilitate photography. Better than the Grand Canyon Train by a mile.
