A day well spent Brought back fond memories of yesteryear, something about traveling on steam trains that makes the experience different. Scenery enroute is amazing. Looking forward to future planned trips to Ceres in the winter snow. Highly recommend this experience to all visitors in Cape Town

You must experience this What a lovely experience. The volunteers and staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly. The food on board was a little limited, and a little short in stock. But otherwise we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We'll be encouraging others to take a trip.

Memories of years gone by The whole trip brought back memories of my childhood. Such a nostalgic experience! And of course, the scenery enroute is just beautiful. We were well looked after and was in need of nothing. We received friendly smiles, lots of information and there was more than enough beverages and snacks for sale. We will definitely recommend the trip and attend future trips!…

Overall great experience. Really enjoyed the trip. I do agree that the windows could have been cleaned and a larger variety of snacks should be made available. Staff are amazing and so helpful.

A great day out My mum and I took the train on Saturday. The whole experience was very well organized by an extremely polite and friendly team of staff. I agree with previous commenters that the windows could have done with a clean (the loos were spotless!) and there definitely could have been…

Lovely experience Hi I loved the experience and the beautiful scenery! I just found the food to buy on the train a bit limited seeing that we're not allowed to bring our own. Also maybe in the future to look at some more amusement in Elgin. We are limited with the market which is not really my…

Great Day out We took the train with friends from the UK. Thoroughly enjoyed it. We booked a compartment and got great service . I agree with one reviewer that the windows could have done with a clean but other than that it was a great day out. I think the market could be expanded over time…

As important of a visit to Table Mountain, this is so much more than an attraction but an experience that swoops you up for an entire day, from amazing sun-kissed skies to jaw dropping sunsets on the trip back to the V & A station. 💯 worth every penny! We hired the last coach for our fellow travelers, including a DJ, and our own catering. The train bar service was tops too, although I think we finished ALL their bubbly onboard. Life is a celebration, right!

🚂🚂 Heritage Day is on 24 September 2022, and we're taking a scenic tour to Ceres for the Day!

Join us on this special STEAM-only trip and enjoy the countryside as it passes by, experiencing the beautiful Nuwekloof Pass as well as the majestic Michells Pass.

This trip is all about the experience onboard and will turn around in Ceres and depart once locomotive and train servicing is completed; we do not expect to spend more than an hour in Ceres, and thus no activities are planned.

The trip departs at 08h00 and is expected back in Cape Town at 19h00. 

Book now via www.ceresrail.co.za, or send us an email at bookings@ceresrail.co.za!
