Your tour prices will vary based on your personal discounts.
For the Grand Canyon Railway tour, reserve seats in the Arizona Airstream Club Coach Rail Car on Friday August 13th. We chose the ADA accessible “Coach” car because it has authentic vintage 20’s seating and décor. Seats can flip toward each other. (I plan to bring my stadium cushion in case the seat is too firm). We will be seated together even if we half fill the rail car. Ask about additional guided bus tours at the RIM if those are of interest to you.
