This was an anniversary gift and it was great! A must do. The refurbished train is very nice but being served a gourmet meal while traveling from Orford to Sherbrooke was spectacular. A real treat and educational too. No cheap but worth the price and experience.

I have been living in the area for 50 years, I got to take the tour with a friend from far away and I rediscovered my region all over. The train is very elegant, comfortable and simply beautiful. Refurbished stainless steel trains from the '50s. First class accommodations, food and guides. Takes you between mountains, streams and lakes. Nice for... More

We had looked forward to this as a nice day trip on a train. Unfortunately, through no fault of the company, it was raining and the view was not great. The write ups we had seen talked of it being a round trip from Sherbrooke, but found it went from Magog out along the number 10 highway then reversed back... More

This trip was organized by a friend and all together, we were 28 people. We left Magog on time and started our trip towards Eastman, Sherbrooke with a stop at the Marché de la Gare. The colours were simply magnificent, of course mid- October is the best time to see the trees changing colour. So we took a lot of... More

It's such a great experience! The lunch dining was superb and the food was excellent. The interior of the train has this look that brings you in another era/world which is simply amazing. The staff was great and the scenery was breathtaking. Only thing that I didn't appreciate is having the waitress passing survey cards towards the end of the... More

We had lunch on the Orford Express on October 24 and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves? It was a beautiful way to see fall foliage through a unique experience? Food and service were excellent and well paced for the three hour experience, Narration in french with a little in english and a reference guide was interesting. The live entertainment at the end...

Old time dinning rail cars in a wonderful area. The meal was excellent. Book early to get a seat in the observation deck, but all seats were good. Will do this again and bring friends and family. Staff is bi-lingual, friendly and professional.

We took the lunch trip during late September. The view from the train was not as good as we had expected. There were lots of trees and it would likely have been a lot better had they changed to their autumnal colours. We were just a bit too early, however, and they were far less interesting. On the plus side... More

We reserved seats in the panoramic section, as we wanted the best experience available (and we were celebrating 35 years of marriage) - The train ride was disapointing, as not as scenic as we thought it would be (Magog to Eastman, then, down to Sherbrooke and back to Magog). However, the food was just amazing with excellent service. The wine... More
