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.

I have reviewed a variety of experiences in Buffalo, NY and throughout Florida! To preface, I am partially disabled. My wife booked the trip online and checked that we would need a wheelchair . When we called to double check the day before we were told my mobility scooter would not work, but they had wheel chairs we could use.... More

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 .

A highlight of our Californian holiday. The perfect way to see the Napa Valley and visit some great wineries. The food served was excellent, the best we had on our entire two week trip. The dining carriage had a very tasteful decor and the chosen music gave it a modern edge. It seemed expensive but when you factor in the... More

An okay tourist experience, but very overpriced for what you get. The train experience is meh, if you've ever been on a train before. It moves slowly up Napa Valley and you pass by several wineries, which you could do by just driving down the road. We bought the lunch package, which included a delicious cloth napkin service, but you... More

My husband and I dined on the wine train Saturday evening on their sunset tour, which we'd wanted to try after dining on their lunch car twice prior. The Napa Valley Wine Train experience is worth it every time! Sit back, relax and enjoy all of Napa Valley passing before your eyes in a beautiful old style train car complete... More

We were assigned tables unfortunately we did not get seating with our friends. Second when it was out seating time we were told we had to wait. Then never came to get us when it was ready like they told us they would. Food was very good. And that would be the only reason I would go back. The waitress... More

Perfect way to dine in luxury from the Vista Dome car while sipping wine and watching the Napa countryside go past! We loved in and the food was fabulous.

We took the lunch train on a beautiful Tuesday morning. The food and service during lunch were excellent. Was a little surprised only one glass of house wine is included, but that was fine. The train itself is pretty cool. The "Observation Deck" at the front and back are really small, and you may have to wait for access.
