My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our trip. The train ride was wonderful. When we were on our way back our driver, Dieter, took us on a great tour, stopping and pointing out numerous points. Also took us down to Rearguard Falls which was fantastic. All in all I really think it's well worth going.
It was really wonderful. We waited at our hotel and the company car arrived on time. The ride on the train and beautiful scenery were great.
We enjoyed the later car ride with good talking of car driver. We recommend this tour.
