“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

No local people ride on this train. It is artificial and offers little sense of the culture, the people, the history. It is one of the most expensive train rides in the world, which explains the real priorities of the company.

“Sweet way to travel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

We book the train as part of a package with the Sanctuary Lodge, and, while expensive, it is certainly the first class way to go. The food was interesting, the scenery beautiful, and the band was fun. If you have the resources, I can really recommend the whole Sanctuary Lodge package.
