SilverLeaf Service invites you to view the passing scenery from the comfort of a single level glass domed coach. Over-sized panoramic windows really bring the outside up close and personal.  Your hot entrees at breakfast and lunch will be served at your seat by one of our onboard hosts, along with a complimentary all inclusive bar service throughout the day.  In the evening, you will disembark to your hotel in Kamloops or Quesnel and Whistler, where your luggage will be waiting for you.

GoldLeaf Service is the ultimate in service and facilities and the most popular offered.  The award-winning service offers a customer-designed bi-level glass domed coach from which you can really feel part of the amazing scenery surrounding you.  Delectable a la carte gourmet meals can be enjoyed in the exclusive GoldLeaf dining room downstairs, with an all-inclusive beverage service.  Four onboard hosts are available to give you every assistance and the covered vestibule area gives you a fully integrated experience.  As you overnight in Kamloops or Quesnel and Whistler, your luggage will precede you – all part of the GoldLeaf Service.
