This tour differs from our regular Trans Canada Limited tour as it is based less on information and more on exploring the cars (looking for hidden objects) and fun facts about rail travel in 1929. This scavenger hunt is tailored towards the age group of the party guests. Finally, you can head up to our historic Argyle Dining Car for cake, gift opening, and additional activities.
