It has been a great one day trip, our guide was knowledgeable and helpful, overall it has been an awesome experience. The downside was a long wait before our train left in the morning, also it took us a while to work out how to connect the audio commentary which was very useful and informative, by the way. At the end of the day when driving back, we felt our driver and guide Anuj was driving too fast, we would have driven a bit slower to make sure that the passengers feel safe. Other than that it was great.

Amazing experience! The scenic train has audio commentary on the scenes along the journey. The weather was great in the morning, unfortunately it was raining and became cloudy in the afternoon. Our guide, Anuj, was really friendly and helpful. We stopped by several scenic spots after hiking at the National Park. Recommended day trip!

Great trip and great guide. The guide was very knowledgable and surprised us with special features such as snacks for the trip.
