Vacations on Amtrak

Amtrak Tours

Traveling through 46 states and offering access to over 500 Amtrak destinations, America's national passenger rail network, Amtrak, allows you to embark on unforgettable train vacations from coast to coast. The travel packages featuring Amtrak trains are just as diverse as the routes themselves. Experience the beauty of the great American West aboard the Southwest Chief, departing from Chicago and traveling through New Mexico and Arizona. Venture to the country's perennially popular national parks, including Grand Canyon, Glacier and Yellowstone, via the railroad. Amtrak vacations aboard the California Zephyr offer a cross-country expedition from the Midwest to San Francisco. You even have the option to explore the historic and exciting destinations of the East Coast with a train trip aboard Amtrak's Acela or Adirondack. Best of all, you may choose between different travel styles for your Amtrak train trips, including independent and escorted journeys.

If you are looking for a weekend trip, Amtrak getaways are the perfect way to get a taste of a region. These packages last just a few days and include fantastic destinations like Chicago, Toronto, New York City, Seattle, Los Angeles and even national parks and Niagara Falls. Another way to experience the wonder of the United States is with a combination cruise and train trip. These tours allow travelers to begin their experience with time aboard an Amtrak train, such as the Coast Starlight, the California Zephyr or the Empire Builder, and later join a cruise ship to explore some of the most scenic waterways in the country. Contact an agent to learn how to make your travel dreams a reality.

Autumn at the Greenbrier & Historic Trains

“Eric our guide was full of facts presented in an interesting way.Eric was caring and enthusiastic. We would definitely sign up on another trip with him. My husband and I had walked through the memorials two days before yet still learned more on our guided tour. We liked the variety of trains,each different. The Potomac Eagle was our favorite.The dining experience was wonderful. The train, we did not enjoy, was the Cass was the one train we didn’t like.It was open air and unfortunately, the weather was awful, cold and light snow. Very uncomfortable. The Hobo lunch was unappetizing,with stale buns.The historic steam engine was what we liked about it..This was our first time in West Virginia, the scenery was beautiful and the history interesting.We liked the way Eric recommended restaurants in walking distance for each evening, The Greenbrier Inn was was very interesting in a beautiful location. We enjoyed learning about the history and seeing all the extravagant chandeliers. The formal dining was fun and a chance to get to know new friends better. Rick our driver was skilled and personable. The whole experience was a 5.

“My wife and I used Vacations By Rail to book our annual anniversary trip this year. We have long looked forward to taking a train trip. They booked us into a first-class hotel in Chicago, the Palmer House, and then the train trip (we rented a sleeper bedroom) was wonderful. Much better than air travel. They booked us into the Hotel Monteleone in New Orleans, which was another absolutely wonderful hotel. Both hotels are historic grand hotels with an enormous amount of history to them, so it's like a trip and history lesson all in one. The staff was great in both places. The Chicago hotel was right on the Magnificent Mile, and the New Orleans hotel was right on the French Quarter. The customer service from Vacations By Rail was exemplary at every turn. I wish every travel experience could be as easy as this one was. It made our anniversary truly unforgettable.

“Mike the tour guide, and manny the bus driver were professional, thoughtful, and ready to assist those of us on the tour. You might consider deleting one, or more sites to allow us all more time at the other stops. I’d recommend building into the tour more down time.

America's Great National Parks

“This was a wonderful trip - Julie Wilkes our guide went above and beyond to make sure we saw all important sites. Everywhere we stayed was great! The food was also great. The train ride was fun and Julie made sure we were well taken care of. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone who likes to be on the go and experience as much as possible. We heard Am Track was updating their sleeping cars which would interest us as we took this trip in coach. My one recommendation for this trip would be to take the extra day at Glacier and add it to the time spent in Yellowstone - could definitely use more time there. Also the eating situation at the Canyon Lodge was the worst of any meal situations. Hopefully they will be able to improve this. All in all a great trip - such beautiful parks hard to complain.
