What People are Saying

It's more than just a train ride!

I was in town for a week & decided to go on your ride offered on Canada day. I enjoyed the day very much; the station, the train, & the horses at the destination. I believe Don was the porter in my car # 106. He was very friendly & knowledge. He was clearly engaged & enjoying himself as were all of the staff or volunteers I encountered. Well done. I'm from Ottawa so I feel I'm an expert in Canada day celebrations. This was one of the best Canada day events I've experienced. Thank you! I also wanted to recognize the quality of volunteers that your group have, excellent.

I wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had on Mother’s Day aboard the PDC. My husband and I came with my parents, my in laws, my brother his wife and our 18 month old son and we are all still talking about how much fun we had that day. I was a little surprised that it was such a crowd pleaser and that we all got something memorable out of the day. The folks in Grossile were friendly, their pies and crafts affordable and impressive. The “twins” performances kept us laughing and singing both along the way and there. The staff were all genuinely happy and helpful, even when I called to book the tickets! Every step of our day was special and enjoyable. We have all given referrals to other friends and coworkers to try it out if they haven’t yet and we are now looking at booking our next adventure with the PDC.

Sincere thank you to everyone involved, please keep up the great work!


My wife and I had the enjoyable experience of spending an afternoon in July on the Great Train Robbery. We laughed a lot and met some nice people on the train. And the stop over in Grosse Isle was very nice. We took many photos and some video of our day.

Just came back from the Lazy Labour Day ride and once again, was not disappointed. All the people at the station and on the train were just great (as usual). Luckily, we had Albert in our car #107. He is so good with adults and children, no one could not like him. So personable and patient. Thank you and all the volunteers who made this a fun day. (again)

We have just returned from the Fall Supper and I wanted to E mail you and thank you and the volunteers at Grosse Isle for a great evening. Your train staff are superb and the food at the Hall was wonderful. Myself and my friends enjoyed the evening immensely and thought that everything was well organised. We will be booking again in 2012. Thank you.

"Just wanted to say that my very huge family enjoyed the Moonlight Supper trip to Grosse Isle. Thanks to all volunteers who made the trip very memorable to us, from the lady in the ticket booth, the porter for 105, the train crew, the people who served us a massive and very scrumptious slice of lasagna plus strawberry cheesecake for dessert, to the staff who offered their tables so our family can still sit together, to Fire and Ice for making my mom and aunties danced, and the cleaning crew. Thank you so much!"
