It was not scenic at all, if you like trees, trees, trees and occasionally someone's yard then this is the tour for you. Im just your average Joe but seriously was disappointed that I had to sit in a freezing cold train car... More

Having done the Polar Express ride in North Conway many times, this train ride is a thousand times better! The train cars are beautifully decorated with garland, lights, and a Christmas tree and you are greeted by three cheery elves. Once on board they serve cookies and hot chocolate, which is much better than the watered down cocoa and hard... More

We are a family of four with two boys, ages 13 and 9. The teenager figured out the Santa thing a couple of years ago, but kept it to himself. I complimented him on this recently, and he smiled and said, "Yeah, I just kind of pretended." He is a wonderful brother to the younger one, who is still a... More

We had gotten a coupon ticket for a train ride for my wife and I just prior to leaving on the trip from Florida. Unfortunately, I did not have a lot of flexibility in rescheduling some things. I hadn't called ahead to check their schedule for a specific day. Since it was late June, I assumed that the train would... More

I also wish I'd read the reviews before booking the Shoreline Excursion train. Yes the title makes you think you will see some of Cape Cods famous shoreline...well that's what we thought and yes we did see a glimpse of it! Absolute waste of half a day. We'd booked the excursion as my nan thought it would be a good... More

We hitched a ride on the brunch train leaving Hyannis at 11.30 am on a Sunday. We were seated in the restaurant carriage which was full, and nicely laid out. Couples up to foursomes available, and no one had to share with another party. Immediately we got on board the starter fruit salad was waiting for us, and drinks were... More

This review is *NOT* for the $50 brunch train, which I suppose could be more worthwhile if the food is excellent, though the views would still be unimpressive at best. There were perhaps 3-4 minutes of actually pleasant views across the cranberry bogs and salt marshes. The rest was mostly just views of trees growing right up to the tracks,... More

Are you vacationing on Cape cod? Then get out your tourist clothes and take a fun ride on the train.Going from Hyannis to the cape cod canal and back again , it was a fun and casual trip of about 2 hours. We had a very informative narrative telling about the history of the land and buildings. If you are... More

We took the Shoreline Excursion (without a meal) - a two hour ride from Hyannis to the canal and back. To begin with we expected to be in an antique train car as stated in the brochure and the Groupon we used but instead were seated in the lower level of a double-decker commuter train car - going backwards! Except... More
