We booked the premier coach tickets and the comfortable seats and perks makes them worth the extra money. The ride was enjoyable and the two ladies assigned to our cabin were so sweet and helpful.

It was a fabulous train ride. The staff were just great. All the other passengers on the train with us were really nice and friendly. The scenic route filled us with the beauty of the area. The stop and the shopping well worth it.

We purchased the 4 hour trip with seats in the premiere car. The train ride itself was amazing. Obviously extremely beautiful. The seats were so comfortable, the service was wonderful, and everyone so friendly. Our only complaint was that when we reached Copperhill and McCaysville for our 2 hour stop, the majority of the shops and some of the restaurants were closed due to short staff. We specifically wanted to eat at the Twisted Tomato but they were closed and every shop that we were really interested in was closed as well so it made the 4 hour trip seem somewhat pointless. I would definitely recommend to call around before deciding to go just to make sure places you want to visit are actually open because they don’t follow their posted open and close times at all.

Had an awesome experience riding on the scenic railway. Our guide, Randy, was very knowledgeable of all the sights we saw and we had a good conversation on the trip back as well. Will definitely be doing this again on my next trip to Blue Ridge
