We boarded the train and were treated to a wonderful gourmet lunch of our individual choosing. Lunch is included, paired wines are extra but reasonable. All through lunch we enjoyed beautiful vistas of vineyards... More

We loved this experience. We took the lunch trip. We got off to a confusing start as we were sent to the back of the train, only to be told that we should go to the front of the train. I'm not sure what happened there. We were told that we would eat lunch in the second seating and that... More

The service was outstanding and our server was very good about pointing out fun facts about the area and some of the vineyards... More

This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The train harkens back to the days where travel was a luxury and premier service was the standard.The food is phenomenal and the dome car provides amazing views, however, we were so focused on our meal that we missed a lot of the scenery. We happened to catch the train when they had a problem... More

We really enjoyed the trip. The dinner was very good (was it "gourmet"? - thats up to each guest to define) and the service couldn't have been better.
