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.
Loved the town of Virginia City, nice lunch spots and sightseeing. Plenty of time to look around and do some shopping.
Great bus driver who was very knowledgeable and social able. Loved the train ride and seeing the old-time saloons and main street.
Just the right length on your bus, train and free time, well maybe a bit longer free time. Very knowledgeable and entertaining guides.
I remember seeing the wild horses and visiting all the spots in Virginia city. The mining history on the train was interesting.
Loved the history told by the conductor. so much to see in the town. The bus driver had some good information about all the cites. Loved seeing all the wild horses
The driver did a great job getting around. Also, the driver did a good job explaining things you saw along the way. I just wish the train ride part had been a bit longer
Train ride was enjoyable. Narrator was knowledgeable. Virginia City was interesting. The wooden sidewalks were a touch of the Old West.
