As said, most employees were fantastic. Just the owners lack of concern that killed it.

Both air conditioners were faulty in the dome car. Got up to 85-90 degrees inside. To make matters worse, the train owner was riding (and playing guitar- badly) in the club car where the a/c worked perfectly. As we visited that car for a cold drink, we were informed that we could not stay there and we're directed back to the oven car. I have property in La Veta, and will certainly discourage my friends and visitors to avoid this attraction. Though most employees were very professional, the operation seemed very amateurish. Just a hobby of the owner, we were told.

The customer service at rio grande is very good.

I couldn't use this and was refuseda refund. I planned on taking my family with young kids and everytime we wanted to go, there was a beerfest or wine tasting. It was advertised to look very kid friendly with hot chocolate but was informed that the rides are not kid friendly. I am angry for purchasing 3 of these vouchers.

The whole experience was great!! The views were breathtaking. The train crew was helpful and entertaining.

Nothing we could think of

The train ride was fun! The voucher process when I got there was easy no hassles. People that worked there was friendly. The description on TravelZoo didn't have a lot of info. I was very surprised how long the train ride was and we got a cookie and hot chocolate on our ride free. I didn't realize I signed up for that one. I was glad they did do that for us. It was -15 degrees when I went. The train was heated. YEA!

No. We were allowed to bring our own food which was a plus since I'm gluten intolerant. It is hard to eat food on a long ride that accomodates me. We had a terrific time!
