It was nice to take a train ride through this beautiful area. I had the salmon and my husband the beef. Both were cooked to our satisfaction. The salad was cous cous which had a nice drawing which wasn't over powering. The young lady was provided our entertainment with her stunning voice was truly enjoyed by all.

We sat in the car with the panoramic view. Just lovely! We boarded and were happy to find complimentary sparkling wine and water bottles. The food and service were just excellant! We booked this trip for us and our 2 friends from England who are vegetarians...no problem. All the food was delicious and our English friends just loved their dishes.... More

The Orford Express is a great train ride. It lasts about three hours, which is just the right amount of time for a train ride. The scenery is beautiful and the food served during the trip is great. I like the fact you can choose your meal ahead of time. During the trip the couple across the aisle from us... More

Overall not worth it. Cost is around 200$ for four people for the Christmas train. There isn't enough activity for kids. Santa only shows up after 40 minutes, stays for 30 and them leaves. They give the kids hot chocolate, 2 huge cookies each and a giant bowl of candy within the two hours, so it is a bad sugar... More

As you board the train you feel as you are going back in time, the good old day`s. The conductor is even there to greet you as you enter. We came to find out that the conductor is a Roman Catholic Priest, named Donald, with a dream to have a train since a young age. With lots of work on... More

We enjoyed an afternoon out on the train. It was well organized and the food was good. Several menu items to choose but you must order the meal in advance. They filled up the tables so We sat with a French couple but we were able to muddle through several interesting conversations. All in all a great day out. If... More

Went with another couple for lunch. Nice scenery, delicious 3 course meal and excellent, friendly service. Train departed approx 1:00. Drinks and meal served promptly over the next hour while we enjoyed the views of forests, beautiful homes and the water. On the return we stopped for about 20 minutes at Magog so a chance to stretch our legs. From... More

The Orford Express offers both a beautiful scenery, a nice dinner and overall, a nice day (or night) out on a train. The best times to go would be July/August if you want more summer temperature and longer nights out after or September/early-mid october if you want the marvelous colors of the trees. It's difficult to pinpoint an exact date.... More
