Whether you sit inside or on an outside car it is a beautiful scenic ride. So relaxing and fun - you see parts of the area you would never see any other way.

We took the New Year's Eve trip and enjoyed it thoroughly. The crew were very pleasant and accommodating. The food, drink, party favors were all sufficient to the occasion. We can't wait to go back and do it again, in the daytime to see the scenery!

After owning a vacation cabin in Mineral Bluff, for 6 yrs., this should be a must for anyone visiting the area. We always took visitors here to see the beauty of the Blue Ridge. Traveling along the Toccoa River into the small town of Mccaysville, you can get off and shop or enjoy lunch here.

Train leaves on time, so we were already in line at 10:50am. Next problem was "where to sit?":) We decided to sit on the right side of... More
