We went for the fall colors the end of September and maybe were just a week early but as you went farther north, fall color did improve. MY RECOMMENDATION is to sit on the RIGHT side of the train when leaving the station. Overall, you get more views from the right side especially lake views and fall color. You are... More

I agree wholeheartedly with Anna B's review. My husband and I booked and paid full price three months in advance. We were told that we would be in the added train cars but the only difference would be no overhead monitors for the front of the engine camera.

thought the first week of Oct was early but colours seen from the train were beautiful. the stop in the canyon wasn't colourful but the falls were definitely a site to see. Loved the fact they sold local beer on the train - expensive but no more than Molson products. Nothing stopping you from bringing your own food / drink... More

Ok, I went on the NGH Tour bus (which was awful-that is another story). On this tour the customers had to pay for the Agawa Canyon Tour Train. The cost was $123.00 CDN. I saw all the beautiful pictures of the train and was so very excited. The bus tour was awful. When the day came to take the Agawa... More

The day started out with low fog that soon burned away to reveal the beautiful colours of fall. The sun made the colours amazing. While at the canyon, we walked to the Black Beaver falls and the Bridal Veil Falls. Both amazing creations of nature. Tried the local beer, Northern Superior Brewing. that was being served. Give them a try,... More

My husband and I really enjoyed this trip. Beautiful scenery! Unfortunately, it started raining when we were in the canyon so we didn't venture too far from the train to explore the area but still got beautiful pictures. When it started raining we went to the dining car for lunch. Food is pretty good...a little pricey but you can bring... More

What a beautiful day. The colors had just started to change the day we went and the morning was perfect with some fog which made for some gorgeous pictures. The scenery is breathtaking. I only wish we would have had enough time to do everything during the lay over before coming back, but I guess that means we will just... More

My husband and I had a great trip which left the station at 8:00am. We chose to have breakfast on the train in the dining car. Very happy with our choice of eggs, sausage. You can't reserve, but each car is called individually so you have lots of time to eat and relax. The staff were wonderful. We packed a... More

If you are thinking of taking this tour you better like trees. The view from the train window is obstructed by tall trees along side the train tracks and only when there is a short break or you are going over a trestle do you see anything. Time in the canyon is very short and not much to see. Spend... More
