This trip was organized by a friend and all together, we were 28 people. We left Magog on time and started our trip towards Eastman, Sherbrooke with a stop at the Marché de la Gare. The colours were simply magnificent, of course mid- October is the best time to see the trees changing colour. So we took a lot of... More

It's such a great experience! The lunch dining was superb and the food was excellent. The interior of the train has this look that brings you in another era/world which is simply amazing. The staff was great and the scenery was breathtaking. Only thing that I didn't appreciate is having the waitress passing survey cards towards the end of the... More

We had lunch on the Orford Express on October 24 and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves? It was a beautiful way to see fall foliage through a unique experience? Food and service were excellent and well paced for the three hour experience, Narration in french with a little in english and a reference guide was interesting. The live entertainment at the end...

Old time dinning rail cars in a wonderful area. The meal was excellent. Book early to get a seat in the observation deck, but all seats were good. Will do this again and bring friends and family. Staff is bi-lingual, friendly and professional.

We took the lunch trip during late September. The view from the train was not as good as we had expected. There were lots of trees and it would likely have been a lot better had they changed to their autumnal colours. We were just a bit too early, however, and they were far less interesting. On the plus side... More

We reserved seats in the panoramic section, as we wanted the best experience available (and we were celebrating 35 years of marriage) - The train ride was disapointing, as not as scenic as we thought it would be (Magog to Eastman, then, down to Sherbrooke and back to Magog). However, the food was just amazing with excellent service. The wine... More

It was nice to take a train ride through this beautiful area. I had the salmon and my husband the beef. Both were cooked to our satisfaction. The salad was cous cous which had a nice drawing which wasn't over powering. The young lady was provided our entertainment with her stunning voice was truly enjoyed by all.

We sat in the car with the panoramic view. Just lovely! We boarded and were happy to find complimentary sparkling wine and water bottles. The food and service were just excellant! We booked this trip for us and our 2 friends from England who are vegetarians...no problem. All the food was delicious and our English friends just loved their dishes.... More

The Orford Express is a great train ride. It lasts about three hours, which is just the right amount of time for a train ride. The scenery is beautiful and the food served during the trip is great. I like the fact you can choose your meal ahead of time. During the trip the couple across the aisle from us... More
