Dit was amazing ervaring gewees. Dit het goeie ou dae se memorys terug gebring as kind. Dis n moet doen vir n familie of self groep vriende. Dankie Ceres Railway vir hierdie rit wat julle gee. Sal dit weer dit doen.

Vincent Motholo

The ride was great. The stag on the train friendly and helpful. It was unfortunate that we were stationery for more than an hour at a station because of railway issues. Overall we loved the ride, the beautiful picturesque landscape the train travels on.



Adam Botha

My wife and I really enjoyed the ride. It was very relaxing and the views when going over the mountain were beautiful. There were some issues with cable theft, but the people in charge did everything to ensure we got going again. Overall a great experience.
