I really like Cog Railway, it's the best vehicle that I had been in before. The sightseeing was beautiful. When we got to the top of the Mount Washington, I felt like I was flying in the sky. I loved my tour guide, he is very funny and professional! I will recommend this tour for everyone, and I will be there this September to see the foliage.

Cog Railway is the coolest vehicle that I had been on. The sightseeing was wonderful. When we were on the top of the mountain, we got so close to the sky. It looked like I was covered by the cloud. All of the people in our group had a excellent day!
