“Scenic Tour”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

A great way to see the gorge up close. Riding the rails! It was a wonderful 2 hour tour with food and beverages available for ordering. The gorge is lovely and is a must see when in the area. There is a guide on board who will answer any questions you have and the staff are friendly and always willing to assist. We booked on line from Canada and when we showed up to claim our tickets, they were waiting for us. All proceeded without a glitch. Excellent service and excellent tour!

Great ride. Beautiful views. The service was great. Even in coach you can order drinks and meals. Servers were very friendly. Our son loved the ride, he's very into trains.

“A Must Do!!!!”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

Family and I decided to seeing the gorge from the train and must say this is the way to go. Just beautiful. Staff was very friendly and got some excellent pictures. Food was so and so, but the scenery overrides any reviews of the food. Would do it again if in the area.

“Always enjoy the dinner train”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

To start - the Royal Gorge Route Dinner Train has a special sentimental thing with us so my views maybe are a little clouded by that, but I don't think so. This was our 4th time on the train, 3rd time for dinner. In the past you had to select your entrée choice when you booked but this year you can decide when you board the train and are seated at your table. I always have the prime rib myself and it's been great every time - generous serving for sure. The scenery in the canyon is awesome and the train will stop under the Royal Gorge Bridge for a few minutes for photos before continuing on to the turnaround point. Unfortunately on this trip the skies opened up and it rained heavily for most of the trip. That was okay for us as we just enjoyed the ride, food and wine selections having done the train a few times before. I felt bad for the people that maybe didn't get to see all they'd hoped but there's not much you can do about it is there?

“Breathtaking Ride”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Beautiful train ride along the rapids of the Arkansas River. Gorgeous views of a roaring river with white water rafters paddling by, mountain views and historic landmarks. Multiple types of rail cars to include great food and beverages. Open air car to go out and enjoy the ride and take pictures. Most of all an extended stop to enjoy the Royal Gorge Bridge.
