Tour Details

WHAT OUR TRAVELERS SAY

As an old and knowledgeable rail man (and rail buff), I evaluated very carefully similar tours I found on the Internet, both in regard to what was included, how many railroads and areas, as well as how the trips were routed and the accommodations included, and I, found Smithsonian's offering to be by far the best, especially the background and experience of the guide.

If you love trains—especially steam trains—you must do this tour.

- Mary M.

The Railroading the Rockies tour exceeded expectations for me, and I had very high expectations going into the tour.
