A Recent Review of this tour

A lovely train trip with my elderly family of 12! ASTA was very caring and organise all the tickets. And she was waiting for our return after 4 hours in time to take us back to the Majestic Princess! We truly enjoy the Rockies equivalent of New Zealand! Thank you ! She also suggested that we should not miss the photo of the old train station and true enough, it was an iconic building to behold as a remembrance for our family 's reunion in New Zealand! Highly recommend it with 12 seaters and elderly!
