The scenery view
, Feb 2020
It was fantastic. The comfortable seats and space were very generous. The view from the windows were really good but it was a perfect sunny day . The train was so quiet and smooth and the staff were very efficient. The audio was very informative

A gorgeous and comfortable ride with very friendly staff. We did a round trip in a day, which included a stroll around Greymouth between rides. Overall, the train ran late and we returned an hour after the scheduled arrival. But who cares when the views are magnificent? Could not have asked for more!
Tranz Alpine spectacular

A great train journey, friendly staff with a handy commentary. Enjoyed the odd laconic extras from the Scottish (?) MC / conductor - very witty. Thought that NZR did a great job and it really showed the amazing diversity of the country plus the ingenuity and persistence of the people who created the route and the track. The only thing needed fixing was the occasional missing dialogue from the commentary, especially at what might have been some interesting info. Only a minor blip on what was a great day. Many thanks.
