“We booked an Alaskan vacation through Vacations By Rail. Everything from customizing the itinerary, booking the vacation and the vacation itself went so smoothly. We were so impressed with the trains and their staff. Everyone was so friendly and knowledgeable. The trains were comfortable and the meals very good. It was absolutely amazing to be in the glass dome cars and watch the scenery and wildlife. Our vacation was so stress free as everything was so organized. We never had to worry about our luggage. It was always where it was supposed to be! We were spoiled and I want to book all future vacations through Vacations by Rail and travel by train!! We cannot say enough good things.

“Our agent, Frank H, was great! He answered all of my many questions and together we discussed which was the right travel package for us. Everything ran like clockwork in Alaska. Our shuttles were on time, our reservations were waiting for us and the trip was everything and more that I had hoped for. I would definitely use them again!

“Alaska was amazing. I am so thankful that we chose Vacations by Rail. Everything is handled for you. You go to the hotel, they give you your key, when you leave you hand in your key and move on. We had a full seven-day adventure we will never forget.

“Vacations by Rail was great to deal with. Our travel advisor was Suzanne who was both personable & knowledgeable. Our issues were not with Vacations, but rather with Amtrak.We did 2 trips back to back, which included hotel stays. The hotels were high end & wonderful. We would not hesitate to deal with V by R again, & have already recommended them.
