Responded 22 Nov 2019
Hi Bev, thanks for the review and 5 stars, Dave & Carol will be so thrilled you had an enjoyable day out with them. This tour is new for us, so your comments are especially welcome. It is a lovely way to spend the day, toodling along a railway line in the quiet, seeing awesome views of the snow capped mountains and listening to historical stories, almost makes you think you could have been a pioneer. Cheers.
