    My husband and I could not have been more pleased with this venue. We stressed over and over that we wanted our guests to have an experience. We couldn't find a venue that provided that until we stumbled on the railroad. The service was amazing. The food was delightful (and affordable!). The car was beautiful! Our guests are still talking about it. I freaking love this place.

    We have decided to have our wedding on the verde canyon railroad. The people there were very knowledgeable & answered all questions we had about the ceremony and ride. Everything looked very nice & set up well. The people also are very friendly & happy to talk about what you want & work together with you on any accommodations you may need or anything. I was very pleased with the look & staff of this place.

    We had our reception aboard the Verde Canyon Railroad and rented out 4 first class cabs for our 120 guests. It was an amazing experience and our guests were raving about it! We were able to use our own stereos to play our wedding playlist in the indoor and outdoor carts and we had a DJ set up in one of the indoor cabs to create a club like atmosphere for the younger crowd. Our guests roamed freely between the carts and had constant smiles on their faces. If you want to create a wedding that no one will ever forget this is such an awesome choice! The staff was so much fun and very responsive, food was excellent (people raved about the rosemary chicken and chicken wings), drinks were yummy and very affordable for guests after our 2 hour open bar ended, and the scenery was something we will never forget! I can't wait to take another ride aboard the railroad and highly recommend if you are looking for a unique destination wedding :)
