10 Amazing Train Tours in the U.S.
Looking to see some incredible sights from the comfort of a train? These tours include both short and long journeys that you can work into vacations to incredible destinations in the USA. Some of these routes may even be available as a part of railroad vacation packages that include excursions and more.
Durango and Silverton Narrow-Gauge Railway
The name of this railroad indicates a special feature that sets it apart from most other train rides: The tracks are placed closer together in a narrow gauge. That means this silver-train-turned-tourist-attraction hugs closer to the rock face of the mountains it winds through, taking riders around sharp turns through the Colorado Rockies.
Connecting major Northwestern cities like Eugene and Portland, Oregon, and Seattle and Bellingham, Washington, this Amtrak ride allows you to combine scenic beauty with big-city tourism. Whether it’s Oregon forests or the spectacular of Washington’s Puget Sound, you’ll get to see a lot of natural exquisiteness on this ride.
White Pass and Yukon Route
This historic Alaskan railway offers a few different excursion options, all of which take you from the town of Skagway into the heart of wild northern beauty. No matter which route you choose, you’ll see unspoiled Alaskan beauty at its warm-weather peak.
Amtrak Sunset Limited
If you want to be able to enjoy the great beauty of the American Southwest without having to do the driving yourself, Amtrak’s Sunset Limited route may be the perfect choice. It runs from New Orleans to Los Angeles, giving riders the opportunity to glimpse some incredible sunsets over rugged terrain as the train wends its way west.
Grand Canyon Railway
Riding the Grand Canyon Railway will allow you to follow in the footsteps of travelers from more than 100 years ago, for whom this train line was one of the only ways to access the scenic beauty of the canyon. The train includes sleeper cars and other amenities that can help make your adventure more of an experience.
Cass Scenic Railway
Departing from Cass, West Virginia, in the months of May through October, this passenger rail train takes riders through an old coal country route. If you want to experience the unspoiled beauty of Appalachian forests, especially in autumn when the colors are at their peak, this is a must-do train tour.
Anyone looking to escape the urban rush of New York City and enjoy the beauty of upstate mountains should consider taking the Adirondack route, which stops in Saratoga Springs and Montreal, Canada. You don’t have to go all the way to Montreal to enjoy the beauty of the Hudson River Valley, which offers beautiful natural scenery that changes with the seasons.
Great Smoky Mountains Railroad
This Bryson City, NC, railway offers passengers several ways to explore the Smokies. In addition to two separate routes, the railway includes features like narration cars and different train ride themes that can help you get the right kind of experience based on your interests and travel style.
Strasburg Rail Road
Though this railway’s route through Amish country is short, it’s a charming throwback to the Gilded Age. If you want to ride in plush comfort while enjoying the Pennsylvania countryside on a nine-mile steam train ride, the Strasburg Rail Road has everything you need.
Cape Cod Central Railroad
Cape Cod offers natural beauty aplenty, and you’ll get to enjoy both the coast and the wonders of rural Massachusetts, including cranberry bogs, when you take this short journey. This route offers a laid-back way to see different sights across Cape Cod, even in peak tourist season.

With vibrant streets lined with French colonial buildings and markets that surge through the city’s backstreets, it’s clear to see why Hanoi is one of Asia’s best destinations. While you can simply explore the city on your own, exploring Hanoi’s attractions with a local is highly recommended. These local tours will give you the opportunity to enjoy authentic local street foods while discovering some of the city’s hidden gems.
Sightseeing city tour on a Vespa
Dubbed as the motorbike city of Asia, it’s common to see hundreds of motorbikes running along the busy streets of Hanoi. A unique and truly exciting way to see the most beautiful attractions in Hanoi is from the back of a Vespa. With its beautiful classic look, the Vespa is a stylish version of a typical scooter. So put on your helmet and ride at the back of this vintage scooter as your local guide drives you around and navigates the city like locals would.
Depending on what you would prefer to see, the tour will take you around the must-see landmarks of Hanoi while your local guide offers interesting insights into the city’s culture and history. Some of the famous sites that you’ll pass by are the Hanoi Opera House, West Lake, Phu Tay Ho temple, Long Bien bridge and many more.
Local street food - Day tour
Take a walk along the busy streets of Hanoi’s Old Quarter as your local host takes you to an exciting gastronomic adventure. Your gracious host, who is passionate about local foods, will take you to discover the exotic flavors of Vietnamese street foods during a Hanoi food tour . Feel free to sample some local specialties such as the mouthwatering pork crepes, a shrimp patty known as Banh tom and a piping hot bowl of the famous Pho, which you will most likely find in every street corner.
Your walking tour will start at one of the city’s local markets. Be ready to take in the different aromatic scents wafting from the local food stalls that sell everything from dried seafood to exotic fruits. As you stroll along the busy streets, your local host will share some interesting stories of Hanoi’s attractions and some tidbits about the country’s local delicacies.
Romantic cruise tours in Ha Long Bay
If you’re traveling to Hanoi with your significant other, taking a cruise along the Halong Bay is definitely one of the most romantic things to do during your vacation. From Hanoi, the cruise will take you to the beautiful limestone islands surrounding the bay as you revel in the magical sunset views.
A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the picturesque Ha Long Bay is one of the most popular attractions in Hanoi and a great destination for an unforgettable getaway. The cruise may also include taking part in some exciting activities such as fishing with the local people and enjoying a satisfying lunch at one of the secluded beaches.
City tour in a Cyclo
Cyclo is an open bicycle taxi that’s pedaled by a local driver right behind you. This three-wheeled bicycle came to Vietnam during the French colonial period after a failed attempt to introduce rickshaws to the locals. Riding a cyclo with your local guide is a wonderful way to discover Hanoi’s attractions, including its hidden gems. It’s safe, comfortable, and convenient, and with a local guide beside you, be ready to see a whole new dimension of the city life.
Sightseeing walking tour in the Old Quarter
The streets in the Old Quarter are lined with historic French colonial buildings and packed with food stalls selling a wide variety of local street foods. The experience of exploring this historic area with a knowledgeable local is something that you shouldn’t miss during your time in Hanoi.
The Old Quarter consists of 36 old streets that look almost similar to each other. Thus, it’s pretty easy to wander as you discover the hidden alleys of the district. Exploring the district with a local is a great way to make the best of your time in the Old Quarter, which is said to be the eternal soul of the Hanoian culture.
Evening street food tour
When evening comes, get to know the vibrant food scene of Hanoi with a local guide who will take you on an unforgettable food adventure. Be ready to duck into the busy street stalls and get a taste of the local foods that the Vietnamese adore. From the wide variety of local delicacies at the street side vendors to local cafes and diners, taking part in this food tour is a great way to soak up Hanoi’s exciting culinary culture.
Follow your local guide as you walk through the maze of stalls while grabbing a bite of some local treats. Prepare your stomach for this gastronomical journey of devouring Banh Cuon, a noodle-wrapped delicacy filled with seasoned pork, sipping a bowl of delicious Pho and satisfying your sweet tooth with a refreshing dessert made from a combination of sweet pudding, dried fruits, jelly bits, and shaved ice.
Countryside bike tour
Joining a countryside bike tour in Hanoi is a more adventurous way of understanding how the locals live in the rural areas of the city. The tour is perfect for adventure enthusiasts who want to explore the beautiful countryside attractions in Hanoi and meet like-minded travelers.
Your local guide will lead you to the beautiful local villages while passing through scenic rice fields and stopping at roadside food stalls to get a taste of authentic local foods.

What other travelers love about our local experts
Thank you Ngoc Ruby ! we discovered the subtlety of Vietnamese food through the tour as well as some fascinating monuments and buildings as we walked through the old town. Highly recommended and Ruby is very knowledgable as a top tour guide !
We spent a great afternoon with Lien learning a lot about Hanois culture, it's people and of course the different dishes served on the street. Lien took us to many different local places. Although we know a lot of traditional vitnamese dishes, we got to know new and delicious flavors, tastes and recipes. Lien was very open and friendly letting us dive into the traditional way of Hanois street food culture. We absolutely recommend the tour with her.
Ruby is very professional, she answered all our questions and showed us the best spots with really good food. My husband, who is a Chef, had also special requests and Ruby changed and adapted very quick. Apart from her professional skills she is very lovely and beautiful person! We enjoyed our tour because it was easy going, like we „were good friends“ atmosphere.
This was a truly excellent experience - Lien was a great guide, and not only took us to an amazing range of great food places, but also showed us some hidden Hanoi gems and shared so much knowledge of life in Hanoi.
