The train trip was shorter than we expected and it was raining heavily when we disembarked at Arthur Pass. The tour organizer worked very hard and tirelessly to overcome the weather problems with some short walks and his expert commentary about the Southern Alps etc A walk around Castle Hill rocks was enjoyable. Overall, I think the total cost of around $750 for 2 people was too high given we had to purchase our own lunch. In my opinion, the tour was over priced by around 20% particularly given we only went half way on the train.

Amazing experience! The scenic train has audio commentary on the scenes along the journey. The weather was great in the morning, unfortunately it was raining and became cloudy in the afternoon. Our guide, Anuj, was really friendly and helpful. We stopped by several scenic spots after hiking at the National Park. Recommended day trip!

A wonderful full day of sightseeing. The train is very enjoyable. However the highlight is the drive back down and the mini stops and small hikes and lookouts along the way.

Brilliant day tour, wonderfully kind guide, perfect for small children (our 3 year old managed all suggested walks)

Fantastic guide, very knowledgeable. Stops in all the best places to get pictures
