Great tour, excellent food on the train! Pullman train cars were impressive.
We enjoyed everything about the tour - the train ride, the entire staff, and wineries and guides, and of course, the wines. We especially enjoyed learning more about what all is involved in making wines, the planting of various types of vines, insect and bird control, etc.
Food was fantastic. And getting to taste the wine after hours was a definite pleasure. The train ride was an experience by itself. Loved every minute.
We had a wonderful time. The staff was friendly and upbeat, the food was delicious, and the wine tours were fantastic. I would do it again and I would recommend this wine train to my friends.
This is a lovely train ride thru the wine country and the food was delicious. The wine tours are an added plus.
I read about this tour before leaving the UK and it sounded very good. I booked for both my wife and myself.
We were staying in Napa in a rented RV so were able to walk to the station. Here we found fantastic suroundings. Staff who made us very welcome. Soon we were on our way by coach to the Vineyard.The Tour Guide was excellent and the information provided was enough and interesting. The wine was great. Back on the coach for a short trip before joining the train. There is only one word for it FANTASTIC. It was a step back in time. The food on the train was excellent. We were sat with a gentleman from Los Angelles who we had a long conversation with during our journey. All of the staff on the train were excellent and very friendly. We both enjoyed the trip very much. When we got back to Napa we sat in the staion building for quite a while just taking everything in before making our walk back to our RV / Camsite where we collapsed from sher enjoyment. The night before we had travelled up from San Francisco. This had been quite stressfull for a fuirst time drive in our RV. However the day on the train took all that stress away and set the pace for the next 16 wonderful days in Califorina. If you like food, wine and trains this is a trip not to be missed. One I would recomend and one that we will undertake again when we return to California in October 2016. Paul and Rose Taylor Gloucester UK
Absolutely wonderful! Excellent food and service on train. Great ride. Exceptional winery tour (Mary at Raymond James). Delightful afternoon.
I loved it! Everything was so beautiful and clean. The Napa Valley Wine Train was an experience to die for: fine dining, excellent service. I learned a lot in Raymond Winery. I loved Napa that much, that I'm planning a trip to stay in Napa for at least 4 days. See u soon!
We had the most amazing time on the Napa Valley Wine Train. The whole experience was wonderful, from the lunch which was delicious to the Grigrich Hills tour which was most interesting. The 4 of us simply had a brilliant day and we cannot recommend it highly enough. The staff were professional and attentive and nothing was too much for them. We cannot get over, despite the size of the kitchen (galley?), on the train the chefs managed to create the most amazing food. My husband had the soup which he declared was the best he had ever had.
We boarded shuttle transportation to Raymond Vineyards and enjoyed a delightful ride with driver, Cesar, and our comic lady guide, Susie (easy to remember because it's my name, too!). Had a wonderful tour of both the vineyard and building. Enjoyed the stories behind the rose bushes at the end of the rows as well as the owl and bat houses and sniffing the added scents to the 4 glasses of wine. Then we boarded the vintage train for a REAL treat! The experience was terrific from start to finish--the food excellent, waitstaff friendly, and train fabulous! Thanks for the terrific taste of Napa Valley!
Thoroughly enjoyed it. Food and service was great on the train. Chandon tour was very detailed and informative.
Very well organized. Terrific food. Wonderful tour guide. Worth the cost
We had a wonderful time. Our tour guide on the bus and at the vineyard were excellent. They were informative, witty and engaging. The train ride was scenic and relaxing followed by a delicious meal and wine. It was a perfect day.
Advance online booking was easy and definitely recommended. Trip was described accurately and we were not disappointed with the excellent meal, winery tour and train ride. Cost of activity was justified and better than trying to drive and tour on our own.
This is a must-do for first time visitors to Napa. What a great start to our week. Tour of Raymond Winery (valley first option) was very enjoyable. Lunch on the train was exceptional. Look forward to going back and doing this one again very soon. Wonderful experience.
