I am not a wine drinker by any sense of the word, however, I had the best time ever on this tour sampling 16 different wines from 4 different vineyards, while dining on a magnificent 4 course meal between train stops over a 6 hour tour. The serving staff on the train were very professional and enhanced the experience in... More

We were in Napa for our honeymoon and spent a special evening on the Wine train. The dinner in the Vista dome will become a treasured memory. The food was gourmet and delicious, five star. The service was impeccable and of course the view of the napa wineries superb. At one point we felt as though we were walking through... More

Booked via Viator web site and the choices were a little hard to understand at first, but we got through it. We choose the Grgich Hills tour with lunch on train. THe train also just does lunch for the majority of people who do not get off the train at Grgich Hills. I recommend getting off at Grgich as that... More

We enjoyed the classic feel Of the train car and we were expecting the cuisine to be better. It wasn't as fresh as they promote. The train ride along the different vineyards was beautiful. We toured Grugish winery and loved walking through and the tour was informative. Felt a little rushed and very touristy. Would recommend driving to a vineyard... More

We booked well in advance and had a great time on the train. The wait staff was excellent, very organized with timing of the cocktails/lounge and the gourmet lunch. It was worth the money spent to enjoy a train ride through beautiful Napa Valley while enjoying a flight of white wines, cocktails and lunch. The staff, was amazing, always available... More

On a beautiful Napa afternoon, this is a lovely way to see the lower part of the Napa Valley, no traffic and no driving, just eating and tasting from beautifully restored Pullman rail cars. I will probably do the sunset trip next time in Napa.

Boarded the Napa Wine train for the gourmet lunch. The experience was very pleasant with good service and amenities. The lunch provided was very good. The train was very clean and comfortable and provided a nice ambience. All in all...I would recommend it. I would, However, consider doing the tours that are available without lunch. This way we could enjoy... More

The three hosts, Amber, Demarco, and Gabby were always making sure everyone was having a great time. The food timing and portions were perfect. The wineries taught everyone how to taste wine. We even went into a vineyard field.

The food was just ok / the wine was so so . This could have been marvelous if the food and wine were more interesting . They do two seatings so you feel like you are on a conveyer belt. It is too expensive for what you get .
