    Brilliant trip through the Taieri Gorge

    Absolotely brilliant train trip, loved every minute of it. The scenery is spectacular and the commentary throughout the trip is excellent. The canteen on board is sufficient for what you would need - i had a deluxe lunch pack pre-ordered and it was fresh and worth the money. Highlight of my trip to NZ!

    An enjoyable day out

    We were lucky with the weather so we were able to stand on the viewing platforms which I think makes for a good experience and better photo opportunities.

    日本の深い谷みたい

    ダニーデンの駅、列車ともに趣があり素敵でした。また座席も空いていてくつろげました。峡谷の風景は日本の山奥にある少し深い谷を進んでいるような感じで特に目新しさ、感動はありませんでした。川の水は濁っています。終点に近くなると景色がひらけて気持ち良かったです。値段が高いので星3つ。

    What a journey!

    Wonderful half day seeing some amazing sights. The train itself was beautiful and let you feel like you were back in time. Fantastic renovation of the carriages.
