Stunning trip to take, in a beautiful area, their staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. Well worth the money spent and I found a quilt shop almost right next to the train.

We boarded our train for dinner in the dome train and were seated with a young couple, newly weds.Our dinner was a Colorado sourced meats and other local ingredients, we opted for a local beer with our dinner, in keeping with the trend. The service was great, the meal was tasty and the experience worth every dollar. I plan on... More

Very enjoyable train ride through the Royal Gorge. Interesting pieces of history along the Gorge with old buildings and utility pipelines helping to explain the years past. Rode in the club car and enjoyed a meal along with the ride.

We enjoyed this and would recommend it. We did the glass domed cars and ate lunch in there but would not recommend that for a couple of reasons. You can't take good picture from there because of reflection. We went at noon and were on the side of the car in the sun. It was extremely hot. The wait for... More

We took a dinner ride through the Gorge and loved it. The food was good and it was very romantic riding through the Gorge at night.

When I had family visiting from Chicago, we decided to take the Royal Gorge Railroad. My brother is an amateur photographer and loves to take pictures of our Colorado scenery. We went on a Friday and the train was not very crowded. An open air car was adjacent to the coach car so we were able to walk "outside" to... More

We booked a table in the dome car with another couple on Monday Oct 6. The weekday meant a smaller group of passengers and table service was very timely. They were able to accommodate my gluten free condition and the wine was good if a bit pricey. The dome is well worth the extra cost and allows you to dine... More

This vintage train ride and dinner was a surprise present so I had no idea what to expect. I refused to check the website to watch the videos or pictures because I wanted to stay surprised and am so glad I did! The railway station is two hours away from Denver and is quite a beautiful drive. The train ride... More

Three friends and I took the Octoberfest train on October 3rd, 2014. I love trains, and when I saw the Royal Gorge Route advertised, I knew I had to ride at least once. This was my first time seeing the Royal Gorge, and I absolutely loved it. The good on the train was spectacular; my boyfriend and I had the... More

My husband & I made the luncheon trip on Monday Oct. 6th with some friends of ours. The service, food and train ride were all excellent. Now, there weren't many people so maybe we were lucky not to have gone on such a busy day, but I can't wait to bring my granddaughter on the Santa Express. The negative reviews... More
