Without question, Arches & Canyonlands, Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks are
truly the 'Wonders of the West' and offer some of the most stunning scenery in North
America. Arches & Canyonlands with their canyon, mesas and buttes are stunning and
must be seen to be believed. Grand Teton, with its jagged mountains, pristine lakes and rich wildlife is
a jewel and Yellowstone, with its geysers, hot springs and waterfalls is a visual feast. Not as well
known, but equally splendid is Glacier National Park, Montana with its storied 'Going to the Sun'
Highway over the Continental Divide and happily, we have combined all five of these great National
Parks into one glorious holiday with excellent hotels, epic scenery and intelligent planning. Nicer still,
ALL sightseeing is included, from a float trip on the Snake River during our visit to Grand Teton, to
complete touring in Yellowstone including Old Faithful and during our stay in Glacier National Park,
the fabled red open-air 'jammer' buses. There is a professional Tour Manager to handle the details from
start to finish and most meals, of an exceptionally high quality, are included. For maximum comfort, all
but two of our hotel stays are two nights long, something almost no other program offers. Nicer still,
each departure is limited to 30 passengers, making our group more intimate and personalized.
Great destinations deserve a great train and we have re-created a classic 1950's era
streamliner train, similar to such legends as the North Coast Limited, the City of San Francisco and
the Denver Zephyr to convey our guests from Chicago to and from the National Parks in great style
and comfort. With a choice of comfortable Pullman sleeping car accommodations (all with in-room
facilities), an inviting lounge area with large windows for taking in all of the wonders of the west, our
Great Western Limited provides a level of accommodation, dining & service not found on any Amtrak
train. With our own attentive staff, superb dining (all meals, wines & spirits are included while
aboard!), plenty of room and a delightful ambiance with such amenities as fresh flowers, afternoon tea,
nightly turn-down service and much more, there is simply no finer way to see the West. Best of all, our
journey to Utah takes us over the storied Denver & Rio Grande Western Railroad 'Main Line through
the Rockies' with a daylight passage through stunning Glenwood Canyon and the Front Range of the
Rockies and there can be no nicer entrée to the magnificent vistas that await you on this entire holiday.
We invite you to compare this exquisite holiday with those offered by any other company,
most of which require days of endless bus travel, a different hotel every night and hotels outside of
Yellowstone and you will agree that this Holiday puts others to shame.
