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

the special trip meal was excellent and the service was great, a little dissappointed with the travel views, if we had only a trip without the meal we would not have been happy, nothing note worthy along trip ride, had been on other train rides with a lot more things to see. The meal and service were great, thank you... More

This was the first thing my husband and I did when we arrived in Cape Cod. The day started off rainy but by the time the train took off the sun started to come out. Robert was our narrator and he did a wonderful job. He gave a lot of good information and had a fun sense of humor. I... More

A friend recommended the Cape Cod Train to us and suggested taking the dinner ride. It was really a lovely experience - very quaint, relaxing and scenic. The food was very good and the wait staff very friendly and helpful. We had been to Cape Cod before but had never heard of the train experience. It's a very nice way... More

I rarely right reviews, But boy do I wish I read them before taking this train ride. 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
