Unforgettable Adventure

My fiancé and I were celebrating our last day before elopement today on the afternoon ride at Verde Canyon Railroad.

While I don’t know their names, our bar service attendant in the Scottsdale car and also our guide on our panoramic outdoor car we’re absolutely outstanding. We chose to remain outside with our guide for most of the experience because of all her knowledge and genuine fun she brought to the ride. She mentioned only having been there since October, which we found remarkable.

We wanted to share some of the photos from our ride today. It started out bright and sunny and ended with storm clouds behind us – this made for some incredible photos! We even spotted some bald eagles.

We are grateful for the opportunity for such wonderful experiences.

There is plenty of parking, a nice giftshop and a small cafe’ for a meal before your ride or take along with you.

The train has really comfortable seating with tables. Our bartender Nick provided each of us a snack box and a Champagne toast before the start. Shelley was our guide in the outside car. She was delightful with a fun sense of humor.  Very informative about the sites we would see and stories about the area. She reminded us about safety and to hydrate with the cold bottles of water provided. The ride was very interesting and the train was comfortable and relaxing.

Highly recommend.

My sister, daughter and I rode the train and had the best time! We are already planning our next trip. Everybody was so friendly (shout out to Nikki our fantastic bartender and E.C. our historian – he had such great stories about the valley!). Loved the champagne toast and meat and cheese tray- Yummy! And of course the beautiful scenery. Took a ton of great photos. Will definitely be repeat customers!

We had a fabulous time! Our historian E.C. was packed with knowledge of the canyon. Our train car person was Nikki and she was AWESOME!!!! She has a fantastic sense of humor and kept the drinks coming the entire four hours. We learned so much about the rich history of the Verde river and the railway. We will definitely be back and we will be requesting E.C. and Nikki!

As my vacation comes to an an end and I travel back to Portland Oregon, I wanted to leave you with some kind words. The railroad trip was spectacular. The treats we’re scrumptious. The best part was your staff. A kind reminder was received when we were five minutes away, letting us know about will call.

We boarded the Tucson Train and thoroughly enjoyed the knowledge and experience of both inside and outside crews. They even impressed my granddaughters, eleven and fifteen, from Apache Junction.

I had the perfect vacation and you and your staff played a big role.

My wife and I had a most delightful ride on your train on 9/29/21. The views were delightful and the ride was very comfortable. The open car allowed us to take some wonderful photographs of the train and scenery. Mark and Mona were very attentive and made the right a real treat. Thank you for a great train ride.

I just wanted to say what an amazing time we had during our visit! Kandi, Liz and Jennifer went over and beyond to accommodate our party of 12. I did not know what to expect as we were there for a friends birthday but it was an amazing experience and I feel as we have made friends for life! Thanks again to the staff as your customer service and professionalism made the trip the amazing event that it was!

Rode on the Yuma car with 2 very fun and informative guides. Weather was perfect and scenery was breathtaking. Will return to experience again…maybe during each different season!
Thanks again to everyone in your wonderful organization.

Liz and Mark were exceptional hosts😀 Thanks for making the ride so special. Verde Canyon RR is lucky to have you both!

My husband and I had a wonderful time aboard the Scottsdale railcar as we journeyed through the Verde Canyon! Our bartender, Nikki, was absolutely delightful and brings so much positive energy and laughter to the experience. We received a gift certificate for the Verde Canyon Railroad from our daughters for our 45th wedding anniversary. A great experience!
