Everyone in my group loved the Rocky Mountaineer trip. The staff, food, drinks and accommodations were great. Vacations By Rail recommended we use the Moab Adventure Center for additional activities during our time in Moab, Utah. The Moab Adventure Center did not disappoint. We booked a 4 hour morning tour to Arches National Park. It was spectacular. I would recommend adjusting the Rocky Mountaineer schedule to arrive earlier into Glenwood Springs, Colorado. Arriving into Glenwood Springs at 8:00 pm doesn’t give you much time in the hot springs pool which closes at 9:00 pm.
