We took the murder mystery dinner trip and it was fun. Not only do you get to interact with all the character but many dressed for the era! The staff was very nice and played along as well. Food was excellent and the scenery along the way was beautiful. Couldn't have asked for a better night!

We went on a mid-week lunch trip with seats in the dome car. We were with friends who live nearby who admitted that they hadn't been on it for a while. If you don't like the idea of sitting on a veteran train then it's probably not for you. However I had never experienced the luxury of the age of... More

I celebrated my 1 year anniversary on the train. It was an amazing experience. I would recommend it to everyone. This is an experience not to be missed. The service was excellent and the food was delicious.

We went on the dinner train on Valentine's Day. It was nice, but not getting a table we ate our appetizers on a ledge on a bouncy train. Riding the train at night offered no view of the wineries. Then we shuffled to the dining car and they crammed us in like cattle. I could barely pull my chair out... More

A ride on the wine train is like going back to another time. As the beautiful vineyards whiz by, you are treated to a four star dinner and impeccable service. An added charm is the Santa Train which comes round once a year for the young ones, and other themed trips such as murder mysteries and the like. A great... More

Being from the area I guess I expected more. The views of course are spectacular. I wish we had done the Grgich wine tasting as we were seated for three continuous hrs. The food was decent but nothing mind blowing. Really good for coming from a kitchen on a train. Over all, pretty impressive.

A special & romantic experience! Great food and service! The Napa Valley is beautiful, and this is a great way to see the scenery. Put it on your bucket list, to share with a loved one.

Give yourself some time to relax and be treated to great food and a different way to view the Napa Valley ~ from the Wine Train ! We plan most of our special events around a Lunch or Dinner and then mellow out downtown at Silo's Jazz Club or the City Winery

Our family was visiting from Germany and where very impressed with the train itself the wagons and the tasty food we enjoyed on this train. We will do it again at their next visit, just awaiting the discount tickets . It is well worth it
