Two exciting rail journeys are sure to delight. We will ride the Grand Canyon Railway (operating since 1901) from the Williams Depot to the south rim of the Grand Canyon where you will have time on your own. The second rail trip is the lesser-known but spectacular Verde Canyon Railroad, also known as the Wilderness Train. You will enjoy this scenic four-hour train ride in first-class accommodations. This narrated journey, through two national forests, will provide an opportunity to see wildlife, colorful canyon walls, Indian ruins, and an abundance of flora and fauna including ocotillo, prickly pear cactus, and yucca.

An included trolley tour of Sedona will introduce you to the unique history and highlights of the area, including the Chapel of the Holy Cross. Visits to the old mining town of Jerome and cliff-dwellings at Montezuma Castle National Monument will round out your touring of the area. A free day to enjoy Sedona is topped off with a farewell dinner at the Bar J Chuckwagon. Don't miss this popular tour to the beautiful Southwest.
