Starlight Tours at the Verde Canyon Railroad
2015 Tour Dates: May 30th, June 27th, July 25th, August 29th and September 12th
All Aboard! Verde Canyon Railroad has announced the return of their very popular Starlight Tours! The first tour of the season will take place on May 30th!
The Starlight tour offers you a totally different perspective of the Verde Canyon. The train departs the depot at 5:30 pm. As it rumbles through the Canyon, the low slant of sun bathes the high cliffs in soft golden hues and the wildlife that call the canyon home begin to stir as the cooler temperatures of the evening approach. I highly suggest visiting the open air cars often during the night journey into the canyon, especially when the train reaches its turn-around point at Perkinsville. The sun is usually setting around this time lighting the sky with a brilliant pallet of colors. On the ride back to the station enjoy the canvas of stars that blanket the canyon.
The Verde Canyon Railroad offers passengers two unique options for these magical evening rides:
- The Grape Train Escape
During the Starlight Tours, “The Grape Train Escape” is only offered in first-class! Each Escape focuses on a select wine-producing region, and each vintage is paired with appetizers that complement the wine.
- Tequila Sunset Limited
The Tequila Sunset Limited has evolved from south-of-the-border shots to sophisticated and sensual sipping of premium tequilas paired with delectable cheeses, Ceviche, Margarita cake and infused chocolate-covered peppers. This is just a sliver of the evening’s event, all prepared and served in first-class comfort.
