On the 9th of this month, I celebrated my birthday on board the Napa Valley Wine Train. I had rode the train last year on my birthday , in the Silverado car, and enjoyed myself, so this year I was back. Everything was perfect, from the lounge and dinning cars of the Gourmet Express, the food, and of course the... More

I and my Fiancee were hoping for a nice, somewhat different, elegant dinner for my birthday and were not at all disappointed, if fact we were surprised by how great the service and food were! We had heard this was a fun thing and in Napa expectations are high. All of our expectations were exceeded. The server was attentive without... More

We went on the gourmet lunch train & it was wonderful! The wine, the train, the views, the food were all exquisite! We cannot wait until our next wine train adventure!

We loved the ambiance of the Victorian car; I loved the calming and soothing experience of the train ride - I could ride that train every day; the staff members were thoughtful and efficient; the food was good; we loved having dessert in the lounge car. We had a wonderful experience on the Napa Valley Wine Train!!

I love trains and have been on many luxury trains all over the world. This experience was no less full filling. So if you are visiting Napa valley then make use of this adventure. We took the package with a Castle Wine tour and it was awesome! It actually took the pain out of our 'The French Laundry' debacle (read... More

The waiting station is very welcoming, and you can have drinks ( wine and beer that I saw) in the station before boarding if you get there early enough. The train itself is a little bit of nostalgia with its restored vintage look which was very well done. We took the dinner train and the meal itself was gourmet fabulous.... More

We took the Gourmet Express Lunch train two weeks ago and had a wonderful time. The staff could not have been more attentive and the meal was excellent. We were a family of four (two adult children, not little children). Three of us had the ahi tuna and one is a vegetarian and he had the sweet pea ravioli. The... More
