Do not chose a seat on the west side of the train! There, that being said, here's the reason. Most of the lakes that are going to be passed along the route will be on the east side of the tracks. The few openings that are afforded will be on that side. Seats on the west side of the car... More

This was our 4th train tour & would be our last if it had been our first. The train was clean & safe but over priced. A small can ( yes, can) was $14.50! The train ticket was not worth the price. We ride for over 4 hours with very few opportunities for scenic views. Most of the track runs... More

The trips in the summer don't let you see a lot because of all the vegetation growing along the tracks. This would be good in the fall with the colors of the trees showing. Its about 4 hours each way with a 1 1/2 hour stop over in the canyon. There will be black flies, etc in the summer. The... More

The train ride to the canyon is 4 hours long. There are small trees lining the track that block the view of lakes most of the time. If you are taking pictures, make sure you have a fast shutter speed because the train does not slow down for picture taking. Every car has different seats. We walked through one car... More

It was amazing a must see ! Make sure you bring your own lunch sandwiches and lots of snacks. You get hour and half at the canon I suggest that you go straight for the lookout trail first. The most amazing view from there !

We rode the Agawa Canyon Train Tour mid-week in early July. The train was only 50% to 60% full, which allowed us to pick our own seating in our asigned car. It's a slow ride up to the Canyon. Anyone with young children could have a problem with early-onset-boredom! My wife and I really enjoyed the trip, and loved the... More

The train left promptly on time. The cars are all older adding to their vintage charm. Everything was clean, including the train car windows and bathrooms - both important when spending a 10-hour day on a train. There were 6 overhead monitors in our car (#3) that projected an image from a camera on the front of the train. This... More

Since most of what you see along the way is leaves, I see why this train is so popular in the fall. In July, though, I didn't think it was worth spending a whole day on the train (plus two nights in Sault Ste. Marie). The lake views along the way are very pretty as are the waterfalls in the...

We did this train trip to Agawa tour. This trip started very early in the AM & was an all day trip, did not reach our destination until 1:00 & returned back to the Sault around 6:45. There was a dining car & snack bar, meals are not included in price. The meals are okay but not great. The workers... More

Rode an hour on the train and had to turn back, because of a wheel falling off another train. Thinking that was a blessing, seats not very comfortable for an all day ride. From what I saw I am thinking it would get boring taking same way there and back. At least it's off my bucket list.
