Fascinating 90 minute trip through the beautiful countryside. Superb, working steam engine along with enthusiastic staff. An experience not to be missed!

A great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. We live in Summerland and this was our first time. It was great to see the surrounding area from another perspective. The staff at the station and on the train were very friendly and welcoming, answering any questions with a smile. Hopefully, they can bring back their special events for next year.

This is our second train ride on the KVR...first was in 1998 when our kids were little. It was time to take them again. And to join our young nephew and niece on their first train ride. This is such a fun experience...a great family adventure. The views in the valley are spectacular. The stories were entertaining. The volunteers really love what their doing! The train is so historic. Looking forward to theme train rides!

Did the ride on Oct 10, 2021. Took the inside coach option due to unpredictable weather. Beautiful trip, great views and as a bonus we seen 9 bears. Great commentary along the ride. Highly recommend this tour.

Lovely experience with beautiful mountain and valley views throughout the train ride. The seats at comfy, the steam engine is immaculately restored. The staff are very helpful and welcoming.
The only suggestion to improve the experience is increasing the volt of the commentary because so many people were chatting loudly it was impossible to hear the conductor most of the time.
The conductor shared history and fun facts as well as safety points and we missed most of the details.
Highly recommend for families!

What a fun ride for all ages. The scenery is spectacular, and chugging along on a steam train makes the experience really special. Our granddaughter loved the picture check-off given out to all the kids and it kept her focused as she looked for each of the items pictured. We saw several bears in the trees so close to the train. How great was that! The conductor's commentary added to the experience, and we learned quite a lot of history from him. I really recommend this train ride.

Anyone looking for ideas to celebrate a birthday I highly recommend the Kettle Valley Steam Railway. This experience was wonderful!! The wonderful staff accommodated our reschedule when we had Covid. They put our group in the same railway car. They made my son feel so special! Remembered it was his birthday on check-in with balloons and a poster 💕. The conductor came to sing happy birthday. It was truly a magical day for a 4 year old. But I think any age birthday will have the best time!! Thank you to our lovely family and friends for coming along 🚂 ☀️.

Nice to see some history still being preserved for future generations to remember how things once where. Very friendly staff. The old fashioned paper tickets handed to you at the station is a nice touch also. Definitely worth doing if your in the area and enjoy history.

I especially love the 3716 steam engine with the picturesque billowing steam, the clack of the wheels and the wonderful whistle at the crossings and trestle. The scenery is gorgeous and we even saw bears! The staff are so friendly and full of history facts to share.
Highly recommended
