Winter in the Rockies

Helen Adams
5 stars
“This was a great trip; the hotels were beautiful and we loved the overnight train! Just the right amount of coordination by Vacations by Rail so that our time was our own but all of the transportation details were arranged conveniently and expertly. This was our second Vacations By Rail trip, and we will definitely take more of them as we are big train travel fans.

“Bettles Lodge had a homey, family ambiance. Staff were very friendly and entertained us with their personal stories. I was so happy that the Aurora Borealis did not disappoint me. I will definitely recommend this adventure at Bettles Lodge.

Grand Train Tour of Switzerland in Winter
20/Mar
JULIE GUTSCHENRITTER JUSTICE
5 stars
“Fabulous Trip. I was really worried about using the train system because I am not used to it. But everything worked out great. The train system was very easy to use and to move from city to city. The cities we stayed in were fabulous (Zermatt was my favorite). The scenic train rides were all fabulous (my favorite was the Excellence Class on the Glacier Express, yes the upgrade is worth it). We did not upgrade the hotels, but the hotels we stayed at were perfect for us (the Matterhorn Hotel in Zermatt and the Swiss Chalet in Interlaken were my favorite). But the prize of the trip were the excellent views from the top of the mountains.

“Sleeper cabins with private toilet, food included, non alcoholic beverages included, snacks, and entertainment on the train is fantastic. The shared shower is a little less fantastic, might need and automated sanitization system. The experience was 10/10 would recommend.

New England Autumn Foliage Express
13 Nov 2023
SAMANTHA RUBIO
5 stars
“Exploring by train the romantic countryside painted with green fields, covered bridges, quaint running streams, and enchantingly fiery foliage. This trip had been in my manifestation journal for years, and it DELIVERS. Our trip was the week of October 8-15, 2023 and the foliage was PEAK! The whole trip is jam packed with activities, you really feel you're getting the most out of your experience and the best of New England because you're jumping from spot to spot. Mary Reed our guide was so considerate, always cautioning us what few activities could possibly pose a challenge to those with mobility issues, which most did very well with and had a great experience regardless. Mary was great, making sure we were all on schedule, pointed out remarkable sights, and made the experience informational, fun, humorous, and full of great surprises. Our driver Tom from Brown Coach was so great and personable. We were traveling by motor coach the whole trip, taking us from hotel to train and train to hotel, each train ride lasting 2-3 hours. We had a seat rotation to make sure there is no fighting for the "best seat". Tips: - Italian food in Boston Day 1 (we had Famiglia Di Gorgio, Incredible!) - I found the most unique shopping was in Mystic, Ct. Make time to roam around in it. - Wear really good walking shoes - Bring gloves, a warm hat, and extra layers for day 4 as you go on the Mt. Washington train. - Bring lots of vitamin D and C to maintain your health, everyone was sniffling and sneezing by the end
