Aside from the slightly confusing instructions for the ferry this was an amazing day trip! Gorgeous food and fantastic wine on a wonderful old train. Visited 2 wineries on the Ambassador tour, which were great. Only slight disappointment was not having any time to look around Napa.
Loved this tour. Relaxing, informative and fun. The food was surprisingly delicious. We weren't expecting that. The twp tours were very different from each other, but each was excellent. It was a long day ferry to the shuttle to the train to the bus to the wineries and back again, but well worth the time and cost. Definitely recommend this tour!
Great tour! I love being in the Wine Train. Highly recommended
We spent a great day on this Napa Valley Wine Train and gourmet lunch tour. The food and service on the train were excellent. The vineyard tour and tasting were interesting and informative, in fact the whole day was a really memorable experience and we are happy to recommend it.
The tour was AMAZING! We left from San Francisco but did not receive any instructions exactly where to meet at Ferry Building. Once tour over had to wait 2 hrs to get on bus to head back. I would have drove there. But definitely would do tour again was fun and great!
This was a great experience! the winery we chose did not include train on way up but we were by ourselves with tour guide and had a great time! Train ride back was wonderful and staff was great!
WONDERFUL DAY...SPLENDID FOOD, GREAT SERVICE, REALLY WELL ORGANIZED...AND THE GRGICH-HILLS TOUR WINERY WAS REALLY INFORMATIVE AND FUN. WE TOOK THE FERRY FROM SAUSALITO TO SAN FRANCISCO AND THEN TOOK THE ONE HOUR FERRY TO MEET THE BUS THAT TOOK US UP TO NAPA. LOTS OF WATER SIGHTS, BUS SIGHTS AND THE TRAIN.REALLY FUN AND WELL DONE!
We had a great trip. After arriving at Napa, we were taken to to the Raymond winery for a tour and tasting. We had an outstanding tour guide ad the visit was very interesting. We then joined the train and had a wonderful meal in a beautiful setting. The ferry ride from and to San Francisco was an added plus All in all, it was a wonderful day.
Wonderful tour with delicious food and great wine. The service by the friendly staff was impressive, they made you feel welcome and although very busy were always attentive to our needs. A great tour that we will recommend to all our friends and family.
Very slick but charming tour. The Raymond Vineyard (Valley First option) was well worth a trip and the wine was so so good! The food on the train was far better than expected.
Great trip to Napa Valley! The ferry ride to Vallejo was very pleasant and our bus was already there when we got out from the ferry. We soon reached the wine train and boarded. The train is trully amazing! Food is good and after we finished lunch we went to explore the rest of the train, as ghe staff also recommended we do. Unfortunately we missed our stop at Domaine Chandon. There is no announcement, so you don't know when to get off.
The train crew were great. They called the bus and were in constant contact with them, so they arranged to stop the train in another stop (not normally serviced by the Wine Train) and when we got off the shuttle was there to take us to Domaine Chandon. That is true dedication and a great service! So in the end we did have our wine tasting and returned very satisfied. Would definitely recommend the tour!
Everything about the tour was fantastic. The ride was excellent, meal and dessert was very tasty. The wine tour at Grgich Hills winery was interesting, informative and our tour guide was very accommodating. I will do this again if I get a chance of a trip to SF again.
so superbly organized and 5 star entrees - winery tour was the tops too. an adventure by sea and land and then train - it was a perfect day.
Very good trip. Trip round vineyard very entertaining and interesting. Excellent food and wine and service on train. Left a little too long before pick up to ferry.
the best part of our trip. loved the ferry ride over and the wine tour was fantastic! delicious gourmet, no kidding, lunch and dessert and loved the tour of the Gricgh Winery - Miles was an excellent guide through the winery tour. everything ran on time; wished we had a bit more time to spend in napa itself, but for next time!
This was the most wonderful wine tour we had been on. Our two bus tour guides were lots of fun and made the bus ride enjoyable.
The whole train experience was a great one. The food and menu choices were better than I had expected.
We would recommend this tour .
A thoroughly enjoyable experience. Food was excellent as was the service. Would recommend this experience to anyone. Most enjoyable part was the meal and champagne we ordered on the train. The wine tasting and vineyard tours were worth a look.
From the time we stepped on the ferry at pier 1, until we stepped off the ferry at pier 39, we were treated as if we were the only two on the tour. Excellent participation by each staff member! They were so informative with history events as we travelled to and from Napa and, were also professional in their serving capabilities in the meal cars. Excellent trip and would deffinately take it again and would suggest it to friends when they are planning to go west. Thank you!
A great trip..... winery was tasty, food on the train even more tastier. Services on the train was attentive and above expectations.
It was great; very satisfied with the Tour, food on Wine Train was excellent !
