A group of friends and I took an enjoyable trip on the Cape Cod Central Rail Road. As we walked to our air conditioned car we were greeted by Madonna Roux our trip guide. I have summered on the Cape for almost 40 years and I saw and learned things I did not know.. Madonna was well versed in Cape... More

We bought tickets to the dinner train, a 3 hour train ride through the seldom seen areas of cape cod. It was fabulous. We traveled along some roads but most of the trip was through beautiful, seldom traveled areas while also traveling along the canal. In fact e went over the cape cod canal drop bridge d that wale really... More

We chose bright sunny day and bought first class tickets for family of 5 expecting beautiful scenic experience. All we saw was trees, ponds, residential houses and 5 minutes of canal view. It was biggest disappointment for a family, waste of time and money. Not worth it at all.

I had dinner onboard the train as part of a team building event, and it was an interesting way to see different parts of Cape Cod. Food was nothing to shout about, and unfortunately some of us developed motion sickness going backwards and eating for half the journey. I appreciate the servers for keeping their stability as they bring huge... More

What an excellent few hours we spent aboard this train. We booked Diamond Class seating so we could sit upstairs and have a better view looking down on the passing countryside. This was well worth the extra cost. The commentary was 'live' by an ex schoolteacher who was superb and gave a wonderful descriptive and historical context to what we... More

We went on the Scenic Shoreline tour - had we not received a tip from another tourist and purchased regular seating we would have seen nothing but trees. We purchased the diamond class seating, which did give a better view than the other seats, but by no means was worth the price paid. It was an hour tour with narration,... More

Way overpriced for what it is! A train ride to see trees and more trees. We probably could see a bit more than others because we chose the diamond class 'premier way to travel' (ya right! lol) which was on the second level of the glass domed train car. The air conditioner was barely working so we were very uncomfortable... More

3 hour dinner train ride, scenic ride from Hyannis to the Borne Bridge stopping along the canal for the main course. Great food and service and had dinner with a lovely couple from Cape Cod who were great tour guides

We took the Shoreline Excursion Train Ride. For $22 each ticket I expected a little more. Basically for one hour you ride backwards then for the last hour you ride the other way. They do have food and beverages on board...a bit on the high side. I can see why when they say you cant bring your own food and... More

We took my Dad for his birthday and I have to say it was a bit disappointing. First I called to make reservations and was told they only had first class. I got through the lengthy booking process and thankfully she repeated as confirmation and said "leaving from Falmouth" but we wanted Hyannis. I didn't even know they had departures... More
