Make your way to the San Francisco Ferry Building and catch a ferry (weekdays) or a bus (weekends) across the bay to Vallejo. From here, climb aboard a shuttle and drive up to Napa.
Once you reach downtown Napa, board the Napa Valley Wine Train and get settled in your seat as it chugs forth into the scenic countryside. Watch out the window as the hilly vineyards roll by or spend some time exploring the interior of the painstakingly-restored antique train.
Enjoy lunch from the critically-acclaimed restaurant onboard, which uses fresh, seasonal ingredients that are locally-sourced. (See below for sample menu.)
Pick from three different itineraries, listed below. All transfers and tastings are included in this tour, and you must check in a half hour prior to your departure.
At the end of your 5-hour train ride and wine tasting excursion in Napa, you will return to San Francisco.
Definitely do this on a Monday to Friday so that the main travel is via the San Francisco Bay ferry. This is a much more pleasant ride than in a coach and has great views across the bay including Alcatraz. The visit to the vineyard was interesting although some aspects of it were quite bizarre. We did get to taste 5 different wines. The train ride was fun with an excellent 3 course meal which was tasty and well cooked. The glass of wine included was not large but adequate allowing for the earlier wine tasting.
Wonderful tour guides, excellent wines.
Professionally operated and good service
Another great experience with this tour. Our drivers, guides, selection of Winery Raymond Winery and gourmet lunch on the Napa Train was excellent. Highly recommend this tour. Barbara and Gene
I recommend this tour at all cost. Please take the tour if you are in the area. You will have a great great time, and meet many wonderful people. The food is great on the train and the staff are exceptional. You will not be disappointed.
Great trip! My husband and I highly recommend it!
Took the Grgich Hills Estate tour and had a wonderful time. Took the ferry and shuttle bus to the wine train and everything went well. The food was great and everyone was very friendly. Very enjoyable day!
The train adventure was really nice enjoyed the food especially. The staff was top notched. My party only visited one winery so we don't have much to compare. The Gigrich Hills was nice though.
The meal on the train was wonderful! Our guide at the vineyard was great - - so pleasant and helpful.
This was a wonderful experience that I would do again without hesitation.
