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.

This trip is not just for the train enthusiasts but anyone who likes to travel through fantastic scenery in comfort. To see the Rockies from a seat in the "Dome car" has to be one of life's more memorable experiences. Money well spent.

My daughter, my daughter-in-law and myself thoroughly enjoyed our journey through the Yellowhead Pass to Dunster. Our hostess on the train was very friendly and informative and the observation car was excellent. The Dunster General Store was extraordinary and the drive back to Jasper was full of more wonderful scenery and commentary from our driver.

The train trip was beautiful and gave a good taste of the mountain experience. The guide on our bus tour was
excellent...sadly I cannot remember his name. A former forester he educated us on many aspects of the forests surrounding us. He was kind, thoughful, funny and he new his stuff. Tks

Beautiful scenery and wildlife. The ride back to Jasper with Chuck was very educational.

My wife and I really enjoyed our day on the Skeena railway - the organisation was spot on. There weren't very many passengers on the train on the day that we went so we were allowed to view the awesome landscape from the observation car - drinks on board too, what more could you ask for. The couriers were informative during the trip and pointed out the main points of interest. The driver who took us back to Jasper gave a geography lesson on the way home and we stopped off at the lovely Robson Park information centre. It was a great day and a welcome change to be able to sit back and let someone else do the driving. If you are thinking of taking the Rocky Mountaineer train I think this would be a good way to get a taster first.

The ride was comfortable, informative Thank you Tracy and the weather was fairly co-operative. Chuck drove us back from the drop off point and was a wealth of information about the mountains, and historical features of the railroad. My only 'disappointment' really, was that the tracks follow the highway so closely, that the views were not really 'new'. I guess I was hoping for a deeper trip into the back country to see views that you can't see from the highways. It was a good way to spend an afternoon though, and something 'different' to do in Jasper. I have recommended this to others.
