Coronavirus Update

as of March 20, 2020

We as an organization are committed to providing responsible awareness of the impact on our employees and guests based on the current Coronavirus pandemic.  We have implemented proven technology over the past 13 years to allow our customer service agents to operate in a safe location remotely. Select guides have volunteered and will conduct tours to sites that are currently open to limited small groups travelling together and groups of four or more will be in their own van. As a company we take our role seriously and not only work hard to achieve a high level of customer satisfaction but also guest and employee safety.  

We are here to answer your questions as your local Sedona/Flagstaff and Arizona partner.  We are here to support our community and our visitors.  We are committed today, tomorrow and in the future to continue to be your tour operator of choice and we thank you for your loyalty and support.

Grand Canyon Train Tour from Sedona or Flagstaff

Get the best of all worlds with this Grand Canyon Railroad / Guided Grand Canyon tour combination.

Why drive yourself to Williams and take a round trip train ride to the Grand Canyon then drive back to your hotel when you can be picked up in Sedona or Flagstaff, get chauffeured to the train depot, enjoy a one-way train ride on the Grand Canyon Railroad...  Then, instead of seeing the same scenery on a two-hour return trip by rail, get introduced to places in Grand Canyon National Park that most people miss. 

After your one-way nostalgic rail experience, your guide will pick you up at the train depot in Grand Canyon Village, you will have time to explore the historic buildings of the Grand Canyon Village, have time for lunch on your own, then you will see what all the other train-goers miss... 

You will tour the east rim of Grand Canyon National Park, see many scenic overlooks, the Desert View Watchtower, The historic Cameron trading Post on the Navajo Reservation on your way back to your hotel...  door-to-door service.

Long before there were Grand Canyon helicopter tours, air tours, white water rafting tours or even mule tours, there was the Grand Canyon's train. Journey back in time on the historic Grand Canyon Railroad.  Click here for information on this great tour from Sedona or Flagstaff,
