Nikki was an outstanding host, she was fun, engaging and made some good drinks. Byron was knowledgeable and friendly. The scenery is awesome and the ride was relaxing. We also enjoyed the snack that was served. It is worth taking this trip. Take note it is a four hour trip.

We are so sorry you had issues with the booking company. Were we, "Verde Canyon Railroad," able to get you on a departure? If so, we do hope the ride was enjoyable.

EC and Candace were wonderful! Very knowledgeable and helpful. We enjoyed the ride, snacks, beverages, and hearing about all the history. The train car was spacious and comfortable. There were 3 of us so we ended up being split up, that was our only complaint.

Amazing railroad journey
Gail_O
, May 2022
This was an amazing trip. The historic rail cars have been beautifully restored. We were surprised to receive a delicious substantial snack and a small glass of champagne. We spent most of the journey in the open air car where our guide, EC, pointed out lots of interesting rock formations and not to be missed sights. We also learned about the history of the railway. Excellent trip!

Like most things, the marketing sounds better than the actual experience. The “champagne” part of the trip was about 2 tablespoons. And the tour guide on our car didn’t mention that there would be an audio tape about the sights we were seeing. Unfortunately, we could hear none of it inside the car because of people talking, including the tour guide! My husband moved to the open car where he heard a great presentation. The seats were very comfortable, the tour guide very enthusiastic, and the snacks were delicious.

Thank you for your candid review. We appreciate knowing when our services fell short and this will be discussed.

Scenery tour

Beautiful scenery; temperature too warm. Would have liked to change seats to the other side in returning to see different scenery. Bloody Mary was to hot to drink. I wasn’t offered something different no charge

We are sorry to hear that your drink wasn't exchanged. This is being addressed. Your suggestion about changing seats is appreciated.

The scenery was awesome, Liz the Bartender/Host and Especially Byron who narrated for us was so knowledgeable, informative and entertaining. Two of my Sisters, my adult son and I learned a lot about this area of AZ. The comfort on the train was way more than expected. Not one complaint from the four of us.
