Loved the train ride, and feeding the goats, donkeys, and wild boars. The baby wild boars were sooo cute! You would never know they could be so dangerous. Bring the kids they will love it. The trains stops and they give you food to feed...More

Our tour guide told us all kinds of interesting facts while the ride itself kept my son entertained. The speaker system cut out a few times, but that was a minimal distraction from the experience.

Fun 40 minute train ride past the orchards and longhorn cow pastures. Highlight was stopping to feed the many wild pigs, goats and donkey. My teens enjoyed it!

So pretty and very entertaining for the kids...especially feeding the hogs. Conductor was great at explaining the scenery, while providing a bit of humor. Very easy and fun for our group of 11 ranging in ages of 5 to 73. Get lunch at Gaylord’s restaurant...More
