Grand Canyon Railway Rails to the Rim Adventure - Los Angeles

REGINA NELL GREGG
5 stars
“We had such a great time!!! The only thing we would have preferred is if we had the option to stay at El Tovar instead of Moswick. We would have been willing to pay extra for that.

Aurora Viewing at Bettles Lodge

ERIC HASEMEIER
5 stars
“This has been on my bucket list for 35 years. It exceeded my every expectation. The food was outstanding and the service was excellent. They go out of their way to make sure you have a great experience. They provided tripods and explained how to use an iphone to capture pictures of the northern lights. The dog sled ride was a lot of fun. All of the staff were fantastic. I would highly recommend this trip to others. In fact thinking about going again sometime

“We had such a great time on this trip. Upgrading to the Prestige package made it so luxurious and special. The Fairmont hotels were fabulous - such great service. We felt so spoiled. The Train ride was incredible. Our concierge Martin was the absolute best. Great trip. We are already thinking about our next train trip in Canada!

Grand Canyon Railway Rails to the Rim Adventure
5/Feb
CONNIE DODSON
5 stars
“Married 33 yrs and our 1st train trip together! We had no idea what to expect and were very happy with all aspects of the vacation by rail. First, Dorian D at vacations by rail is an asset to the company. She answered alllll of my questions kindly and patiently. Had she not been so, i doubt l would have booked as it was a spur of the moment decision to call. Next, the Amtrak meals and service were outstanding! Picture riding along at sunset, enjoying a delicious 3 course meal, prepared and served with a rocking smile! The Grand Canyon Railway hotel, Judy and Lindsey shuttled us safely, the train and robbers were great, as were the musicians and conductors/guides. Maswik staff Beau, Chelsea, and team were welcoming, kind, and helpful. We will travel.this.way again

Alaska Northern Lights & Aurora Train
4/Feb
TIMOTHY WYGANT
5 stars
“If the interior of Alaska isn't on your travel bucket list, I earnestly advise you update it. If you dress for the cold, it definitely won't bother you. No photograph or video can replace the majesty and beauty of actually experiencing the local area. The vendors selected to guide you on your tours are top-notch, and extremely good at what they do. The hotels, too, are truly excellent and enhance your vacation experience. We are already planning a return trip. One note of advisement: Prepare to be tired. There are times when the turnaround from one excursion leaves little time to prepare for the next one. For example, after completing the 'Aurora Viewing Watch Tour,' we had only 3 hours to pack and sleep before we had to meet the train to Anchorage. Since the train ride was a major determination in our selecting this tour, we struggled through the fatigue, but an additional "day on your own" in Fairbanks would have been ideal - especially since a lot of this tour package is self-guided.

“Visiting these charming sites in Switzerland in winter was delightful! The vistas were beyond description and made all the more glorious with the beautiful snow. The train arrangements and hotel bookings were all well planned and easy to implement.
