If you want to see exciting places, full of people and shopping centers - forget about the tour - If you are after amazing views, maybe a longish but worth it train tour and amazing hike at the end of it - go for it!! We loved it! And actually raced with other people to the top of the view... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Seats were comfortable in car #1. Food was good and prices were reasonable. Loved the scenery. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Not much to do at the canyon if you are not a hiker so just sit back and enjoy the scenery. Thank you.

It took four hours up to park and then covered the same track for four hours back. I will say I have never seen so many spruce trees in my life. The seats get kind of hard but they did tilt back. Lucky for us the car was not full so my wife and I had a whole row of... More

I cannot recommend this train tour. The train station where you pick up your tickets opens at 7 am and this is where you pick up your tickets and are assigned a coach. The seats are not assigned so you want to get on quickly to select your best seat. The train boards at 7:30 am so be outside to... More

I just came back from this trip and was disappointed. I had invited a friend from Europe and treated her the trip- airfare from Toronto, hotel and train tour. The views were beautiful but the seating arrangements are done with little planning or thought. We had in our car a group of 29 with many young children (about 15) and... More

This experience is an all day event. 7:30 to 6 pm The trains is well kept and well organized. The cars have a dining car between them. The serve breakfast and lunch for an additional fee. The train travels at 41 mph for most of the trip so taking photos is easy. It travels through mundane and beautiful areas. We... More

Took the train in the "green" season. Information given along the way is good. Some amazing views from the train when you get over the rivers or open spaces. You do see a lot of green. Enjoyed a nice lunch on board before heading into the park. What a beautiful spot. Climbed the 350 stairs to the lookout, what a... More

If you are looking to experience stunning back country views that aren't accessible by car, take the Agawa Canyon Train!! Spectacular views of inland lakes, streams, and ponds, topped off with a 90 minute visit at the Agawa Canyon park. I imagines this would be breathtakingly beautiful in the autumn. The park was immaculately maintained; had easy to walk hiking... More

We went on the day trip. While the time at the canyon was nice, beautiful view from the lookout, the view on the train ride was obstructed a great deal of the time. If some of the trees near the tracks were trimmed or it down, that would help. Food in the dining car was good. Prices were in line... More
