We had a wonderful time on the way to Perkinsville. Our 'hostess' Grace was very fun and informative. There were two things that made me choose 3 stars instead of 5. 1-We were told to get there at 11a to exchange our email ticket for the real one, but boarding wasn't until 12:45. It was hot out and with the required physical distancing, we were bored and uncomfortable with no where to sit and be in shade. 2-The return is just a repeat. There was no mention anywhere that it was a one way trip. We assumed it would be a big circle with something new to see the whole time. Therefore the return was a bit boring. Had we known, we could've brought a book to read.

Thank you for complimenting Grace as our employees do work very hard to ensure the satisfaction of our guests. We do our best to provide a description of our trip via brochures and on the internet. We are sorry if there was a misconception about the location and travel of this 100-year-old, historic rail line. We do appreciate that you chose to spend your afternoon with us.

This was a most enjoyable trip through the Verde Canyon. The staff in our Yuma car were Jenn and Joy. Their assistance and knowledge were amazing. They pointed out the many canyons, vistas, and formation so we felt like we didn't miss a thing. The ability to move easily from our indoor car to the open outdoor care was a real plus. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting this beautiful area of Arizona.

Thank you. Every day we realize how "amazing" it is that we get to share this beautiful canyon with such wonderful guests.

Train ride

The train ride was very beautiful and relaxing. Snacks were tasty and crew onboard did a nice job. The only issue was getting to the car we were riding. My girlfriend has a disability and can’t walk far. Both getting there and back were difficult for her. Asked for assistance from the golf cart drivers to Come back after dropping off others and it didn’t happen. Also they both came across as rude.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2020
We appreciate that you took time to ride our train and any slight you received in regard to the golf cart service is unacceptable. Everything we are supposed to do is to make your trip with us a great as it can be, from start to finish. If you could share more details for me I would very much appreciate it. My direct email is teresa.propeck@verdecanyonrr.net.

Was a wonderful trip that we had never taken even though we have been here in az for years We rode in the Phoenix First Class car which we highly recommend . Nice box of appetizers and all the cold water you could drink Full bar and in alcoholic drinks as well. We had the table with two chairs and had view going up and back down.. outdoor car as well which allowed you to see even more Our car agent Grace was a great hostess and had interesting facts to tell us about. The narrative that played was very informative as well Would recommend to all.
