Lovely Sunset Tour

Our gang of long time friends really enjoyed the sunset tour on a fun vintage train. It was relaxing and the scenery was typically New Mexican, gorgeous. We stood outside on the open air car for most of the ride on a beautiful late afternoon. Would definitely do this again.

Fun fun fun!

Each car has a different theme to it, from history to sunset serenade to a Prohibition-era speakeasy to stargazing. The staff is really fantastic, and each car has musical talent. Bonus: all of the train scenes filmed in "Oppenheimer" were filmed on Sky Railway.

Absolutely Perfect

The nostalgic Acoma car made for an interesting trip; the staff was pleasant and attentive. Nice to also discover that Sky Railway supports local musicians, wineries and breweries on their trips. Would definitely try some of their other excursions if back in Santa Fe.

Best Experience

It was so magical, like a couple hours were everything else goes away. Service amazing! And music performer even better! We don't have plans to return to Santa Fe anytime soon, but this was the best part of our vacation. If we did return I would do it again.
