This was the third time we've visited Verde Canyon. The railway offers great first class accommodations with wine, food and comfortable seating. The open air cars have great views of the canyon and rock formations. We'll worth the trip.

It was a fun afternoon. It was interesting going to the half way point but boring on the way back. How much Canyon can you look at, it all looks the same.

Awesome four hours spent in the Cottonwood First Class Car with our wonderful tour guide and hostess Suzanne.. The scenery was inspirational and the commentary informative. The snacks and drink combinations available in first class were outstanding. I would recommend this first class package.

I have booked first class seats gif September but reading the reviews it seems that if you are a couple then seating/views are not very good. We are travelling from Cyprus so have a 15 hour flight plus a 5 hour drive so I am hoping this train ride is going to be worth it. I'd tgere anything we can do to ensure good views?
