Overview

Verde Canyon Railroad is a Southwestern adventure that takes passengers on a ride through Arizona’s backcountry, only accessible from the comfort of this train. This legendary “boutique” attraction allows members of groups an uncommon view of a wildly-wonderful red-rock canyon. The four-hour excursion requires no laborious effort or exertion except by the highly-trained staff who absolutely love what they do. As evidenced by exceedingly positive reviews, they do it very well. Verde Canyon Railroad is the only excursion train in the Southwest which offers every guest two seats for the price of one: inside viewing through large panoramic windows in all coaches and 360-degree views from open-air viewing cars attached to each coach. As the train passes “through” a grand canyon, both vantages celebrate incomparable scenery, high-desert flora and fauna, historic trestles, dramatic geology, unusual rock formations and passage through a century-old 680-foot tunnel. Throughout the journey the captivating history of the Verde Canyon and the Railroad unfolds with narration interlaced with a wide genre of popular railroad tunes.

We booked the club car which allows you to sit at tables with comfortable couches. Beverages and a light lunch were included. The scenery was beautiful and the staff and crew were friendly and informative.

We love this. Husband said it was like going hiking w/out the exertion. Tips: you don't have to splurge on the first class pass to have a great time since once the train gets going, most people leave the inside cars to ride in outside...More

We loved the train ride. Becky our attendant was awesome. And really enjoyed the sights! But the car we were in returning back to the station, the A/C wasn't working very well and everyone was miserable from the heat. Overall it was an OK experience.

My wife and I had a great afternoon at the Verde Canyon Railroad. The ride takes just under 4 hours to travel 20 miles out to an old ranch and then back to Clarkdale. We chose the first class experience which is only a few...More
