Virginia city was great! Best part of the trip! The train ride was a little disappointing and the driver lacked knowledge and struggled to answer some questions

The bus driver was great. Full of interesting information. We were disappointed with the train ride. We thought it would have been longer.

Views from the mountains. Bus driver very knowledgeable about area. I’d recommend this trip to anyone that wants to get away from casinos for a day.
