Great experience

Location: Derby Age: Over 65 Bought For Son Occasion: Christmas
Bit disappointed that it was only Diesel and not steam. As a "senior citizen" the same "experience" can be bought for £9 on the site. Staff were brilliant, most helpful and the whole experience was excellent. Evocative of a time gone by. A very, very relaxing day and most therapeutic.

Our rover gift card was easy to exchange for rail tickets at Duffield station, our starting point. We travelled to Wirksworth taking in sites of station renovations along the way. We spent 2 wonderful hours there, enjoying the Saturday market, trawling the small, friendly shops and witnessed a wedding. Superb value for money, will be doing another one next year. Thanks to buy a gift

Very impressed with the rover steam train ticket we bought one each and were able to get on and off the train any time we fancied. Lots of lovely little villages along the line we stopped off for afternoon tea at one. Nice to enjoy the countryside from the train.

Lovely day out but would have been better if we had gone when there was an event on. It was very nice but don't think would go again. Once you have done this train journey, you have done it . We did walk around by the river and it was lovely. Price is cheaper if you but your ticket at station. But good day out.

Location: Coventry Age: 55-64 Bought For Relative Occasion: Just because!
On arrival we exchanged our vouchers that cost £15 each from buy a gift, to my amazement you can purchase the tickets for only £10 each, same tickets, same trains, same use, think twice before you buy, the money you save can pay for your fuel to get there. The day is what you make it, for us the sun was shinning, the staff was'nt very helpfull, there was only 2 stations to get off at and a 2hr wait for the next train, I would'nt reccommend it

The trains ran through some beautiful countryside; but I was disappointed with a couple of things. We were greeted by a less than enthusiastic young man and the 'museum' wasn't what I was expecting at all. Despite this, it was a pleasant day out; my grandad enjoyed it.

Steam train ride

Location: Staffordshire Age: 55-64 Bought For Daughter Occasion: Christmas
Very friendly staff and other visitors. Steam train only does a little ride but the diesel goes on a 1/2 hour trip (you can go on and off all day). We went on a Sunday so sadly Driffield was not awake!

Nearly what it said on the Box

A lovely surprise gift idea, but the reality was, er, different! By the time we booked our Day Rover experience, only non-steam rides were available - and we could only get them in Derbyshire. However, the day was enjoyable - warm and sunny - and the railway staff were very welcoming. Actually they were too welcoming because of a mix-up with someone else who was having a VIP experience that day! That's when I was bundled out of the cab. But we had a good laugh about it later... in fact we're still chuckling now. Overall, pretty enjoyable, but the box said "steam", and we got diesel. I didn't mind, but someone else might.
