What a joyful way spending a Saturday morning. Very informative and the scenery is breath taking! Make sure a pack a picnic basket as the train stop halfway on the journey. Make time to have a look around the museum as it is truly a trip down memory lane! Highly recommended! Book in advance and if possible a clear day is preferably to enjoy the views.

Oh my word, what an awesome experience!!! Felt as if we stepped back in time. Looking out of the window, listening to the train's wheels screaming on the trails, it felt as an old time fairy wonderland unfolded as we were travelling through a forest, tunnels and waterfalls. I was carried away into my own yesterday dream world, I could imagine looking down and seeing myself dressed in those beautiful old gowns, with a hat and feather on my head. We had a lovely picnic high up in the mountain. What a wonderful memory!!

This trip had been recommended by a number of people so we were excited when we managed to book a spot. We assumed that there would be commentary in English as the website is in English however on the route up the PA system was so bad we had to turn it off so couldn’t hear anything from the guide in the adjoining carriage. On the return the driver gave some commentary but it was nearly all in Afrikaans. The weather wasn’t good so visibility was poor (nobody’s fault), but having no view and minimal commentary made for quite a dull trip. If it wasn’t for the young Afrikaans couple in the group translating for us we would have ended the trip none the wiser.
Very disappointing, we felt the staff could have made more of an effort to impart information to the whole group given the poor weather.

Views of George, Voortrekker tracks, old gravel passes and new tarred roads unbelievable. Mossel Bay and Hartenbos clearly visible from the tracks
The narrator / tour guide was very knowledgeable about local vegetation, tunnels, bridges, route, George and the local environment. Communicated freely with passengers.
Worth every cent, will do it again.

Poor service. Owners insist on speaking afrikaans only! Looks like they are not interested in black customers, even though half the passengers were African,

Very interesting and informative humble rattle up the breathtaking mountain side. You also go through 6 tunnels, one of which is more than 200 m long.

Great value for money.

Very glad I took some frozen water sachets with me in my picnic bag. I definitely recommend this in summer.

Get ready for a real adventure, a feast for the eyes and soul and a lovely day out!

The Locomotive Museum at the Station is a must see too!

There are clean public toilets on site.

Do bring a donation for the museum please, it is well worth it.

We went on the Power Van as a family, and it was a fabulous experience from start to end. The museum with the beautiful old trains was really a throw back, filling us all with nostalgia. The Power Van is neat en comfortable and service is very friendly. It was quite an educational journey! The views, however, was obviously the best part of the experience. A picture cannot justify the beauty that we were surrounded with. Make sure to pack a picnic basket - this is something you MUST do when visiting the Garden Route!
