  • The caboose is available for parties of 6 or less. One price regardless of the number in your party. If you have 6 it's not much of a premium over first class seats. We had 4 people and it was...

  • What an amazing experience. This was my first time on a train and I was blown away by our fantastic hostess, who was so full of energy and helpful. My partner and I rode first class our seats were so comfortable. The views of the canyon were awe inspiring and we look forward to taking a night tour so we can get a glimpse the canyon under the starry sky. The prices are reasonable and the food was tasty and were fairly large portions. Thank you for such an amazing experience.
  • It was a nice train trip, lasting 4 hours. We were a little disappointed though. The brochure made it more interesting than it really was and all the nice scenery was not on our side, so we missed a lot. The seats in the train were very comfortable and the service was excellent. They serve a nice snack of cheeses and crackers, fruit and brownies. Bottles of water are included and wine, beer and cocktails are served for a price.
