The scenery was very nice, but we were left standing on the railroad siding both going up and down the mountain for a very long time. If I had known how out of control the operators were, I would have selected a different excursion.

Enjoyed this very much. Our trip included waffles and coffee. We thought the trip was expensive for what we did but even as an independent traveller the railway trip isn't cheap.

Very good guide that knew his job. The train ride was full of great scenic views, especially the waterfalls. The hotel lunch in Voss was very good.

Railway staff were unfriendly and, although we did sit together because a lady offered to move to another seat for us, there were quite a few passengers who were very upset with the chaos.

It's a train - impressive engineering, it goes up and down-lovely views but we'd seen stunning scenery in the morning on our other trip. The most hilarious thing is the waterfall stop, oh and sit on the right hand side as you go up because the views are better. I'm glad I went, but I would not go again - mainly because of the price for what it is. Read Less

Far too expensive ($210) for what we got. One way ride on the train where we could not even choose seats to allow our full party to sit together. The guide never said a word once off the train. Price of the train itself is probably about $70 for the ride we took. So, adding in about $20 for the waffles, Holland America is making a killing on this trip. Read Less
