For the first time in 30 years, I finally had the time to take the Agawa Canyon Tour Train! What excitement! Waiting until retirement to start doing the things that have been sitting on my bucket list. What a disappointment! Such a long, long ride to the canyon! The seats were so hard and uncomfortable, mid-way there and again on... More

We like to ride trains so the chance to do this trip while in the Soo was a quick decision. Unfortunately the warm dry summer means all the colour changes are 2-3 weeks behind schedule so hitting the first day, Sept 12th, of the revised (upward) Fall pricing while almost doubling our price (no more Seniors discount) from the day...

For a weekend getaway, my husband, myself and some family friends came to Sault St. Marie for the specific purpose as to ride the train and see some of northern Ontario's lovely scenery. The train was clean and offered some great history and commentary on the way to Agawa Canyon. Upon arrival, we had an hour and a half to... More

Very disappointed, actual experience is nothing like the ad for the tour. The train ride is 8 1/2 hrs round trip. The view consists of mostly the trees close to the tracks with an occasional and brief view of a lake and one waterfall. Upon arrival at the Canyon you spend 90 minutes in which to hike to three lookout... More

A must see if you are in Sault Ste Marie. Very nice scenery and in the middle of the trip the train stops in a park and you have 90 minutes to walk around or picnic lunch (I highly recommend bringing a picnic lunch) Very relaxing and a great way to see part of Canada's great northern country.

we travelled Friday Sept 23/16. It was 8.5 hours of trees and more trees and some water but train was travelling at 40 miles per hour and the trees covered most of the views. Arriving at Agawa Canyon was a couple of trails to a look out point 321 steps (only for the fittest of people) and a couple of... More

Unique train trip into the wilderness. While we realize the wilderness experience is appreciated by many, we would have enjoyed the trip more if some additional trees almond the line would have been cut to allow for better scenic viewing We were also glad we had ate breakfast at our hotel and not on the train as you need to...

Due to unusual weather conditions this summer, the Fall colours had not started to appear. Therefore a disappointing trip from that perspective. Also, the journey to the canyon is 3 hours and most of what can be seen is the trees and forestry alongside the track. There is very little other scenery. An hour and a half was spent in... More

The train was clean. We had hundreds of people on our trip within 16 train cars. I would have liked more time at the end of the ride. Word of advice don't buy food on the train unless you are rich. 2 small bags of chips were 7 dollars
