The views were stunning. I did think it was a bit pricey though given that the return route is exactly the same as the route there. I ate before boarding the train but I saw what the others were ordering and it seemed a bit overpriced.

My wife and I took a ride on the Royal Gorge Route Railroad and we loved it. We were in one of the vista dome cars and had great views all the way! The staff were very knowledgeable and gave us a great narrative the entire way there. We chose to eat a hearty breakfast in our hotel room and... More

We were fortunate enough to be here on a beautiful sunny day. The views were spectacular! I had a piece of chocolate cake that was scrumptious! The staff was really friendly and the ride was comfortable. I highly recommend this if you are in the area!

This trip was planned by my beautiful daughter and it was all a surprise. I loved the train ride through the gorge. It was a beautiful clear day and we got to see nature at its best. We were seated and right away the crew was wanting to take care of us. I would like to personally thank Shannon, Kathi,... More

Great tour! We went first class & it was worth the additional money. We saw lots of long horn sheep & the views were spectacular! We didn't have lunch however the food looked great. We did have dessert & drinks & both were great!

My folks were up from Florida and both have some mobility problems. Nothing to worry about on this trip. We all had a great time! The views from the bottom of the gorge are incredible and the staff narrators are incredible. We learned so much about local history and almost everything unique about the gorge. I am certain that you... More

We live in the Springs, and my wife and I decided to drive up to Canon City while the kids were away for the weekend. =) We had purchased tickets for the Vista Dome car for lunch time on Sunday (10/25), and definitely were not disappointed! The view was stunning (from both the dome car and the open air car)... More

I have been on this train ride many times over 4 years and my last experience was the very worst. The views are stunning and this train ride is worth it to some extent. If you are a young couple with NO children, no issues. If you are older and have issues getting around, not so good. If you have... More
