Would suggest a louder...

Would suggest a louder microphone to hear the story of the train, etc. We could hardly hear it. Enjoyed the train ride. A lot of nice people. Lunch box was good and also drinks. Ride was a bit long but overall enjoyed the experience. Thank you for a fun filled day.
Wonderful, Comfortable Train Ride (with amenities)

Snacks were refreshing. Scenery was spectacular. Our side of the train - the sofas - was more limited in viewing opportunities.
Highly recommend this experience!
