    Had to take a bus to Arthur's pass due to land slip. Still a very good trip and the views were spectacular. The staff on the train were great and the amenities more than acceptable. I would highly recommend this trip to any visitor to the South Island.

    It was rainy and cloudy the day we rode the train, but the views were still good. The only thing that could be improved is letting people know when the information was coming through the headphones. We loved the drink and snack options on board!

    Good views and interesting way to get from Greymouth to Christchurch. Comfy seats and good commentary. Weather wasn't great so view out of the window wasn't great but had an open air carriage for photos and to see the view.
