CHOO! CHOO! All Aboard

Looking for a unique experience in the Vegas area. I love trains, so I was able to convince my travel mates to join. Despite the early morning time, it was a fantastic excursion!
Fun Fun Fun will do again

We loved the experience riding the rail it was fun listening to the tracks as we rolled along. We did have to pedal a little when going up the incline at the end. We chose a hot day to ride which was a bummer because the sun was in our eyes so we know that next time we do this we will chose a cooler day.

Great tour, friendly operators. Wanted something different, outdoorsy, active, and still Not something we could do at home. well they have ot, and we found it.(Thank you Viator for that) Beautiful rail cars, a nice collection of train cars and a man with a wealth of locomotive knowledge. They're working on expanding and I can see why. This was fun and felt good to use our legs at the end. The 1sr 4/5ths is just smooth sailing and site seeing of the desert and rocky landscape. *If you are in Vegas, you will want your own car.
Fun & Relaxing

Went with my bf, we had a great time the staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend
Awesome desert ride
, May 2021
Awesome experience. Mostly downhill and a great way to see a different view of the desert. Plenty of time at the end for a rest and a snack while awaiting the train ride back. I did the 2 seat tandem, the 4 seat would be an easier pedal but no problems at all
Worth it!!
