Relaxing but mainly views of the trees

As other have said, it's a nice ride and good narration but we were disappointed that we mostly say trees. I did enjoy seeing the cranberry bogs and estuary areas when we passed... read more

When I was a kid in elementary school, I used to ride the train to Yarmouth and Dennis from Hyannis. It was fun!!!

As other have said, it's a nice ride and good narration but we were disappointed that we mostly say trees. I did enjoy seeing the cranberry bogs and estuary areas when we passed them but there wasn't enough of that. Maybe they need to bill it a little more clearly as we thought it would be quite scenic.

We took this ride on a Sunday morning, the train was only about half full, so we were able to stretch out a bit. Seats were comfortable in standard class, and both upstairs and downstairs seating were available. The staff, the narrator and conductor, were both very friendly and interacted great with adults and children. The conductor was even willing... More

Or maybe never get on a train. This is a rather long monotonous ride. Not much to see. The saving grace is the commentary and pleasant staff. Good to take a book or newspaper to save the day.

Myself and my wife had a wonderful evening. First we were greeted by our conductor Bryan. He gave us a little history of the train and the car we would be dining in. We had reserved the Capeview Diamond class. The car is an elevated full window canopy, giving you 360 deg views of your ride. We departed Hyannis toward... More

The ride was not too interesting, not much to see. We were in the first class car, but the windows were not too big, smell of popcorn was almost suffocating, kids across us were loud and blocking the lady on the speakerphone. She did present some history facts but it was hard to follow her and understand what exactly she... More

OK, its the middle of August, the traffic is awful and we decide to take the train with the grandkids. The ride is not very scenic. Its mostly trees! There are some views of Sandy Neck Beach and the ride terminates and reverses along the Cape Cod Canal. The narrator does an excellent job pointing out the sites and history... More

I was expecting to be able to see far more of the countryside--that is other than back alleys and backsides of businesses. No drinks were included in very high price. The food was fine--chowder very good, but service was mediocre. I was disappointed.

We went on the dinner train and the food was defiantly better than expected! I was stuffed by the end. The train itself has a nice rustic feel to it. The staff was great! As far at the scenery, there really isn't much. About 10 mins of the cape. They did stop at over the cape for us to watch... More

We took the two hour coastline tour, and the guide had some very interesting information to share, plus there were parts of cape cod on view that you would not see from the road. There was plenty of space, and good air conditioning, and is a really good way to spend a couple of hours if you are in Hyannis.... More
