My wife and I took this tour on Thursday, October 1, 2020. The train was not running that day and they offered us $10 each refund or a full refund if we wanted to cancel. We went on the tour anyway without the train and had a great time. I apologize for not knowing the guides name, but he was terrific. Knowledgeable and funny. Took us through Genoa Nevada and the state capital. Saw the Governor's mansion, the mint museum and several wildlife... mustangs, mule deer, and more. Virginia City is somewhat typical of a tourist destination town from the old west, but done well. We enjoyed our shopping and eating there. We'll go back when we have more time. I would recommend this tour and maybe the train ride would make it even more enjoyable. Nevertheless, they did a good job.

My wife and I like to take the city or area tours where ever we visit and this one was one of the better ones we have ever done. Our driver was knowledgeable and entertaining. The scenery was breathtaking and all the stops were well managed and timely. We truly enjoyed this excursion.

Even though the visibility was terrible because of the surrounding fires, the trip was worth it. The driver went out of his way to make the best of a tough situation. Everything from the interesting information to the breakfast and lunch presentation was great. Snowshoe John was outstanding.
