  • I had a fantastic time, and would without a doubt recommend it to anyone who would like to see more of Canada and meet lots of interesting people
  • I was incredibly impressed with the quality of the food - I had expected dried-up old sandwiches, but instead was presented with pot roasts and excellent salmon
  • I liked that the portions were reasonable for the price you were paying, and that they even offered dessert for an additional cost
  • Instead, I found that we kept to a decent schedule, and I liked that the car attendants were always willing to answer questions about the timetable
  • I would certainly recommend them to other travelers

      I recently took the “Canadian” from Toronto to Vancouver, in order to see a little bit of the country. I had a fantastic time, and would without a doubt recommend it to anyone who would like to see more of Canada and meet lots of interesting people.

      I liked that the food on board was reasonably priced and was tasty. I was incredibly impressed with the quality of the food - I had


      expected dried-up old sandwiches, but instead was presented with pot roasts and excellent salmon. I liked that the portions were reasonable for the price you were paying, and that they even offered dessert for an additional cost.

      I was also very impressed with the fact that we arrived ahead of schedule into Vancouver. I had been led to believe that the trains were constantly behind schedule, and had heard some absolute horror stories.


      • Instead, I found that we kept to a decent schedule, and I liked that the car attendants were always willing to answer questions about the timetable. They were knowledgable and happy to help, and I was impressed that VIA supplied a number of French-speaking attendants.

        Although I was traveling economy and therefore only had a seat, I felt lucky in that there was nobody sitting next to me, so I was able to

        stretch out and relax a bit. Even if I had had to share the seating, I liked that the seats reclined incredibly far back (further than airline seatings) and that there was ample leg room and a footrest. It was very comfortable, which surprised me.

        I found that VIA Rail went above and beyond my (admittedly low) expectations, and I found them professional and helpful at all times. I would certainly recommend them to other travelers!
