The experience started off with a big smile and warm friendly greeting by the conductor followed by another warm greeting by our server as we entered the train. The entire trip we were met with attentive service and never waited long for anything we requested.
The atmosphere was amazing as we found ourselves in awe of the ever changing scenery and views of Vermont that only this train ride could provide. Once we were done with dessert we finished our ride in the lounge car were once again we were met by a big smile and helpful service by the bartender. When we pulled back into the station the sun was setting over lake Champlain topping off a very enjoyable trip.
It was a great experience celebrating our 30th anniversary!!

This was our third trip, and as good or better than the first two.
It was requested as a birthday present that I was more than happy to provide.
It's a beautiful vintage train, with ample seating. Lots of time to visit and enjoy a drink and apps before the ride. A scenic ride from both sides of the train, with meadows, farms, the lake, rivers, streams and small settlements to see along the way.
Friendly professional service by the wait staff, very accommodating to our request to change seats. Beautiful and delicious meal with salad, entree and dessert. We had the ahi tuna and steak with tuxedo cake for dessert.
The timing is perfect with the sun starting to go down as you arrive back at the station.
Highly recommended if you like trains, good food, Vermont landscape or views of the lake!

I took the dinner train with a group of friends and had a fabulous time!! The food was fantastic, our server, Grace, a delight!
It also happened to be an absolutely beautiful evening so the views the entire way were pretty spectacular. From Lake Champlain through the farms and rolling hills and trees, every scene out the windows was beautiful.
We enjoyed everything and would highly recommend! I will definitely go again.

Depending on what side of the train you get will be the difference between good views and terrible views. There is a reason that you cannot request specific tables. On our trip, they ran out of beer, clean spoons, coke, and coffee creamer. Food is okay. Service is a notch above okay.

This was a lovely way to spend our 34th anniversary! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the 3hour scenic ride, complete with a very delicious dinner. We would highly recommend taking this relaxing dinner train for a special occasion or date night. The staff were all very friendly and personable. Delightful!

We enjoyed a great tasting and filling meal with beautiful autumn views from a classic dinner rail car. The service was exceptional and the locomotive ran right on time. We are repeat riders and recommend to all.

Fun classic date night. Once you go once you won't need to go again. Some people dress up fancy others don't, not a requirement. GeT the CHEESE plate. You are on the train for awhile before dinner so order the cheese plate to snack on. If you don't they will run out and you won't be able to order it when the train starts. Nice farm scenery. Food was decent, drink were good.

I can't decide if the train ride or the dinner was the best part. Wait, i don't have to choose, they were both great along with the service. Spending quality time with great friends in such a wonderful setting creates such a lasting memory.

I absolutely love train travel. This was a special treat on our visit to Burlington. The service was excellent! Our server, Kelly, was so nice. The dinner was delicious and plentiful. Everything went smoothly and the sound of the train whistle passing through local towns and crossings was great. We would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Burlington, Vermont.

We had so much fun! The train ride was great, service was great, and the food exceeded our expectations. All seven people in our group had a wonderful time and we would all do it again. Our server, Grace, made my sister-in-laws birthday unforgettable. Thank you!
