My husband and I recently took the Verde train excursion out of Clarkdale. It was wonderful. The grounds at the train station are pristine, handicap friendly and easy to navigate. Terry, one of the train attendants was so prompt and helpful to obtain a wheelchair for me to use. The 1st class seating was great. Nanette was our attendant, so helpful and friendly. The chairs were comfy, love the copper tops on the small tables. The hors d’ oeuvres were satisfying and plentiful. What a nice touch to have a Champagne toast as we began our ride. It really lifts people spirits and the prickly pear margaritas were popular too. The trains songs were delightful along the ride. We certainly recommend this adventure.
My next door neighbor, who is a retired Phoenix fireman and myself (retired Phoenix police), along with our wives had a wonderful afternoon. WE have taken the train in the past but on his ride we were made aware of the Magical Christmas Journey. We have booked ourselves with our 5-year-old great-granddaughter and her mom for this December.
I would like to thank you for all of the help you provided to make our trip such a success. All of the Scouts and parents had a great time, and that is a reflection on all members of your organization that we interacted with.
Regards, Steve Kraft
I wanted to say thank you for all of your hospitality! We could not have asked for a better place to share such a special moment in our lives. Everyone was incredible and helped me tremendously throughout the day! My fiance, Zara, was very surprised and it would not have been possible without everyone’s help on the train.
The train ride was incredible and very enjoyable! We will definitely be returning again very soon. We have family visiting from outside of Arizona for the wedding and we are planning another trip to Verde Canyon during that time.
I have attached a few pictures from that day as well. Thank you once again for all of your help, I truly cannot express my gratitude!
We first rode the train almost 10 years ago. Last weekend we took our grandkids for the raptor ride. They loved it. Everyone we interacted with, at the station, the gift shop, cafe, museum, or on the train was wonderful. So helpful, and cheerful. Can’t say enough good things about our experience.
Today we road the Phoenix car with Mika and Daniel. My husband had never been on the train that I have raved about. He is a believer now and we will gladly ride with our two professional hosts again soon! Thank you for the food and great drinks once again.
My family recently rode your train on May 17, 2018. My mother’s mobility is quite limited and wanted to thank you for making the trip memorable for all of us.
Thank you to Tamara for organizing everything upon our arrival. Thank you to Sherrie for getting all of us onto the golf cart, and safely to the YUMA car. Thank you also to Ashley and Shue for assisting in making us all comfortable, but especially my mom.
We had a wonderful time and enjoyed the laughs and learning. We will be telling all of our friends what great service and awesome experience we had.
GREAT BIG thank you.
Just a note to express our appreciation for the delightful ride on the train … and the travel industry discount. We’re back in Florida but while still in Arizona we recommended the train to several people.
We’ll send our agents flyers, and every effort to promote this.

WE HAD A BLAST!
Don & Jenny were wonderful hosts on the Sycamore Car and it was 4 hours wonderfully spent.
We had company from Omaha, NE, so we decided to take the train ride! My father was an engineer for The Burlington Northern and we have missed riding on the train! We had an awesome time! Ashley was a car host and she was very pleasant! Saw some critters and made some acquaintances from other States! We really enjoyed ourselves.
