From the moment you board till you get off you are pampered. What other organisation has the CEO to circulate with you prior to boarding then stands in line to wave you off. We did Vancouver to Kamloops then on to Jasper. As this was a special occasion we upgraded to gold leaf. It was well worth it. The staff are brilliant the food was good meal service could have been quicker but we did not mind as there was so much to look at. Drinks provided all day and transfers were efficient and stress free. Hotel partners were good. We were really made to feel special. We heard the same from travellers in Silver and Red leaf. Highly recommended

Great experience on the first trip of 2014. Food and service brilliant in Gold Leaf. Fantastic views and scenery. Unfortunately, due to a culvert being blocked unable to go through Rocky Mountains so had to do last part by coach which was awful, Have to say that the staff sorted out everyone's transfers from the coach and letters were given to everyone when stepping off the coach offering compensation. Would definitely do this again.

Travelled the classic route Vancouver-Kamloops-Jasper by train in Redleaf class, which was excellent. The windows were large enough to see everything and there was an outside vestibule area for photos etc. Seats were very comfy and large and the service was excellent at all times. The food, although light was perfectly acceptable and most drinks were included. The onboard host and commentary was excellent with some great sights. The days are quite long but you see so much and the stop off in Kamloops was welcome and perfectly comfortable.

Fantastic experience, highly recommended. Well looked after and plenty to see and do, as well as a relaxing time. The staff were friendly and attentive. Met some interesting people aboard the train from different countries - always plenty to talk about!

We took the gold service both ways from Vancouver to Whistler and had a great time. The scenery is outstanding, the commentary is interesting and you got at a speed where you can take in the whole experience. The breakfast on the way up to Whistler was very nice and the afternoon tea coming back to Vancouver was equally pleasant. A very nice way to spend the day.
