Private Docents for your group
Would your group prefer a private docent in their car for the duration of the C&TS trip? We are now offering for a modest fee, private docents dedicated to serving your group. The docent will be there to meet your group and provide that additional TLC–giving your group the VIP treatment they deserve! Our docents will be on hand to provide detailed information not only about the C&TS Line but also on American history and the development of the west, point out unique geological features including volcanic structures and the not-to-be-missed petroglyphs, and the types of seasonal wildflowers being viewed along the trip. Your docent will lead your group through trip tips tending to your trip details. Part of the VIP treatment includes getting to meet the train’s engineer and conductor and the opportunity to ask them first-hand what makes this train so special. All in all, a great investment for your clients. $200 charge per group/ride– advance reservations must be made. Coordinate with our Group Reservation Manager, at 1-877-890-2737.
