Our ‘Fall Colors in Quebec and Vermont’ also features vintage private train travel from New York City to Montreal at the start of the program with a daylight passage up the Hudson River Valley, through the Adirondacks and along Lake Champlain, a visual feast in the words of a BBC writer. Our ‘Train Holiday to the Great Smoky Mountains’ features the wonderfully scenic trip aboard the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad, at the perfect times of the year. Because of limited capacity, all of these programs sell out so prompt reservations are always wise.
