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.
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.
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.
Fabulous train ride and lunch. The food was the best we had on vacation. Friendly staff and beautiful train. Visit to winery was informative and fun,
Great way to see NAPA...
Awesome trip and great wine. We did the Ambassador tour and the Krug winery tour was great, the Raymond winery average. It was confusing about that the ferry ride was covered by the tour but I didnt know that you just had to show your tour voucher to get on the ferry. I bought tickets for the ferry but was reimbursed.
The visit to the vyneard was great, the train ride was funtastic, we sat with a couple from California and had a very nice conversation. Food was excelent and the server was very plesant. Will do this again.

Much better than expected. I would like to do it again
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.
