If that's too many acronyms and events for you, don't worry. We're here to tell you about what matters most -- the prices you pay and the places you stay.
When is a slower train better? When it's overnight. This is the only Amtrak train where accommodations are really affordable, with standard bedrooms as low as $58 on top of the train fare -- the price of a very cheap hotel.
Here's a tour for those seeking something out of the ordinary -- a narrated journey through a former prison that once housed Al Capone.

From Lisa Tourek: "We just returned from a week in France. We have traveled there before, but this time we arrived 2 days before the war started. Contrary to popular media reports, we had absolutely no trouble. We were treated kindly and warmly throughout our week long trip. The first 3 days we toured the Loire Valley, visiting chateaus and wineries. This was idyllic, with Chateau Chenenceau being the most memorable."
From Hilary Archer: "Any suggestions for what to do in Milan for approx. 3 hours? Our layover is 6 hours total? I understand the downtown is a 30 minute train ride away."
From Simona Deaciuc: "As a fourth time traveler to Tahiti (Bora Bora, Moorea, and Tahiti), I was again shocked by the number of stray dogs and cats running around unchecked -- starving, limping, mangy dogs and cats foraging for food, with little compassion from the locals. I am sick and tired of this -- I am paying thousands of dollars to be confronted with this."
From Sharon Svatik: "Went to Costa Rica on a Sunnyland all inclusive package and had problems too numerous to list here. The biggest was that we paid nearly 200 dollars for an upgraded cabin that we did not receive. The owners refuse to refund our money and claim that it was the resort's responsibility, not theirs."
From m.g. burgess: "I'm a single traveller. With international airline bookings down 40% for the months of April and May 2003 (according to the latest issue of U.S. News and World Report) my question is: Why are the tour companies still penalizing single travelers? Why don't you welcome my business, instead of hitting me with outrageous surcharges, for only half the service you provide to travelling couples?"
