Full description

Travel along a wild and scenic river, only accessible by rail that was first built in 1912. Enjoy comfort and style, exceptional amenities, and outstanding service. Wind your way through a red rock paradise, with tracks that hug the curves of the Verde River.

Relax in spacious living room-style seating near panoramic windows. Individually packaged, freshly made snacks of meats, cheeses, fruits, and brownie bites are served at your seats. Full bar service is available in every car. Stroll around the train to open-air viewing platforms.

Take in astonishing views of a wild and vibrant frontier, historic trestles, bridges, and a 7,000-foot tunnel. See nature tucked into unusual rock formations, red rock pinnacles, and towering crimson cliffs.

Look up to see bald eagles and hawks float effortlessly on the breeze above Javelina. Keep an eye open for wild burros, jackrabbits, and many other canyon creatures who have been peacefully coexisting with this heritage railroad for more than 100 years.

Select the starlight option to travel through the canyon amid the brilliant variation of colors at sunset and twilight. Starlight rides follow the new moon when the cosmic constellations are at their brightest.

The tour was outstanding! A beautiful day helped. Both our tour guide (Sully) and bartender (Cary) were super taking excellent care of all of us. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
