The scenery was awesome, Liz the Bartender/Host and Especially Byron who narrated for us was so knowledgeable, informative and entertaining. Two of my Sisters, my adult son and I learned a lot about this area of AZ. The comfort on the train was way more than expected. Not one complaint from the four of us.
