Reviewed 3 June 2014

As part of our Canadian Rockies tour, we traveled on the Rocky Mountaineer for 2 days in May. We elected the Gold Leaf service and boarded at Banff. From the moment we stepped on the train, everything was First Class. Service was impeccable, views spectacular, food outstanding.
Erin, Hope, Shannon, and Naomi were the perfect hostess', not only providing continual beverages, but pointing out various points of interest and wildlife along the route, with an occasional joke to keep us all entertained.
Everything about this trip was amazingly well organized. Hotel keys for our overnight stay in Kamloops were handed out prior to arriving at the hotel and our luggage was waiting for us in our room when we arrived. Upon arriving in Vancouver, again service was outstanding as staff was available to assist with claiming luggage and hailing taxis.
I do not know what the Red or Silver Leaf service provides, but the Gold Leaf is definitely the way to travel and well worth the additional cost. This experience was Perfect in every way!

We did a two day trip from Vancouver to Kamloops then to Banff. We upgraded to the Gold Leaf service and the trip was something special. The level of service was beyond expectation and the food and beverages were amazing considering this was all done on a train. The information and commentary provided by staff was great. If you can afford to upgrade to Gold Leaf do it, but the journey itself is also well worth taking.

Travelled from Jaspar to Kamaloops and then onto Vancouver on the Rocky Mountaineer. Excellent scenery and the service on our gold leaf package was superb.
To see the mountains,canyons and rivers of the rockies from the comfort of a train was breathtaking. Food excellent and plenty of legroom - highly recommended.

This really was a trip of a lifetime for my wife and I from first to last in May 2014.
We did Vancouver -kamloops -Banff -lake Louise -Calgary on rocky mountaineer and highlights apart from the great train ride were LUPO restaurant and joey burrard restaurant both in Vancouver plus along the route -emerald lake-chateau Fairmont lake Louise -
The service on train was brilliant and don't miss the Fairmont at lake Louise !
The views of course are spectacular not just mountains but lakes forests too!

Can only agree with everything Alan C has already said in "Awesome" review, 2 day Gold Leaf service Jasper to Vancouver in May was an incredible journey. We loved every minute of it: scenery; food; staff and of course our fellow travellers. One thing which was totally unexpected was the fact that before leaving the train at Kamloops we received our hotel room key - fantastic organisation, second to none! Cut out queuing up in Hotel foyer and we could go straight to our room and free to enjoy our evening. Can't rate the trip highly enough and would love to do it again SOON!
