My mum and I took this trip and weren’t disappointed. They have a scavenger hunt for kids (and adult kids) and the conductor did a great job of explaining what we were seeing along the way. There is also a great gift shop.

We visited the Kettle Valley steam railway. A little hard to find from the main highway, but we managed following a local map we got from a gas station. Interesting bit of history. Steam train with vintage passenger cars.

My sister my husband and myself took this excursion on a recent morning. The train is authentic. The conductor/tour guide was pleasant and informative. We felt at $25 each it was great value.
