My husband loved Bonanza tv show. So I booked this trip. Train ride was interesting but the seats were too hard. I was taught a lot of trivia from our coach driver. Interesting trip.
It was everything I'd thought it would be and more. The bus driver was fantastic and it was one of the most informative and fun trips that I have ever taken.
This is an excursion worth taking. Our guide was outstanding. He provided us with a lot of history and information about the area. The train ride was shorter than we expected.
We had a great time and the bus driver was very knowledgeable. We highly recommend this trip!!

Very nice day. Bus driver was very knowledgeable . Virginia city was fun!
Great trip and enjoyed our tour van driver. He was very knowledgeable about sites along the highway and what to see while in Virginia City. We will recommend this trip to our friends and family.
Tour was great. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the points of interest throughout our journey.
It was an excellent trip, however, I wish the train ride had been a lilttle longer. I realize it was during the week, while it was only 30 minutes, it was very informative and well worth the time. Is there a way to make the week day trips 45 minutes? just asking.
A wonderful experience. Just the train ride was enough for me but then we got to spend time in Virginia City to do shopping and have lunch. My wife and daughter had a ball shopping at the small stores. It was well worth the price of the trip just for one of these experiences. I only wish we had a few more hours in Virginia City to see some of the historical monuments McCay ? House, Boot Hill, etc.. This was our third Viator booked event and they were all great.
This was a great tour to sit back, enjoy the narrative and scenery and end up in a most interesting old west town! We had a blast!

Great part of American History. The narrator was Outstanding.
Our tour guide for both the shuttle to Virginia City and the conductor on the train were excellent. Loved that we had three hours on our own to explore area. Very unique tourist trap. Many unique items in museums and on the strip. Everyone was very friendly.
Besides the scenery, our driver was the best part of the trip June 11! Besides thoroughly knowing his stuff his upbeat presentation of relative and entertaining information and history was OUTSTANDING!
Really enjoyed all the information the driver had to share on our way to and from Virginia City. Lots of tidbits that only someone from the area would know. Very interesting place to visit and learn the history of the area. The conductor on the train was extremely interesting with all the details he knew about the train and mining. Enjoyed the outside seating in the train car too. We truly enjoyed ourselves and would do it again. We had never heard about this tour until we saw your 'advertisement' on the tours for Tahoe that I pulled up online. We will use your site again when we are looking for something to do. We also appreciated the phone calls to let us know where to get the tour 'bus' and the additional calls to make sure we knew where to go and how much time we had to be there. That was a really nice personalized touch in this day and age!
We had a very good time, the tour guide was great. We even went back to our hotel in so lake Tahoe and checked out and spent 2 days in Vigina City Nevada, Stayed the night in the Haunted Silver Queen Hotel.
Very fun for the older kids and my wife and I
had a good time, learned a lot about the area , it was a fun day with wife
This was a great way to visit Virginia City while in Lake Tahoe! The town itself was a bit crowded and full of souvenir shops, but there are plenty of things to do during your brief stopover. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining.
