“A Great Evening Train Ride”

Credit Valley Explorer
Attraction details
Reviewed July 14, 2013

We had a wonderful time on the Dinner Tour last night. We had a table for two and had an east view when we started (I would recommend this side of the train...more to see). Some of the scenery was breathtaking - gorges, waterfalls, rapids, cliffs, historic sites and rolling hills...things you would never see from the roadway. The windows are large so your view is not limited in any way...take your sunglasses though, the setting sun was a bit bright some times...again, one side of the train is better than the other. The dinner was very good, starting with the best roasted bell pepper and tomato soup I have ever had, followed by a delicious salad, and then either prime rib or chicken. The dessert was decadent and a perfect end to a very good meal. The wine was a bit pricy...$6 for a small glass. The servers were efficient and friendly. All in all, we would highly recommend this dinner tour. And I almost forgot, during the tour we were entertained by a fellow (dressed in period garb - black pants, white shirt with armbands, red vest and straw hat) playing olde tunes on the clarinet...he was a hit with everyone. Check it out.

This was a great little train tour where the kids had fun drinking hot chocolate, snacking on ginger bread cookies and singing Christmas carols while waiting for their chance to chat with Santa! My Friend and I took our little guys but I'm definitely booking again so daddy can join us this year!

We go on this train every year in December with our kids and grandkids. It's a great way to start the Xmas season. They have hot chocolate, ginger bread men, elves singing Xmas carols and Santa! Santa is great, spends time with each family, picture taking and talking to the kids.

Meanwhile the train travels from Orangeville station South to the Forks of the Credit area and then returns. The whole trip is a bit more then an hour. The scenery is very picturesque as the train travels through forest and over rivers.

Scenic train trip through the Hills and Valleys of the Headwaters.
The trestle over looking the deep gorge is breath taking!
The train stops for a short break at Inglewood, the village has a little general store with great Ice cream and tasty baked goods!

One server with no time to take drink orders. Dry sandwich was very hard to swallow without water, tea, juice or liquid of any kind being offered. From the time the dry sandwich lodged in our throats, till the end of the trip, no drink was offered.

Our server blamed the lack of service on the passengers. "sorry I didn't get to you, the alcohol drinkers slowed me down"

Serve drinks (even water) with the meals! We're not launching rockets here!
