We went with another couple on the Vista Dome train for a birthday. All four agreed that it was a very nice experience and the other couple decided to purchase a gift certificate for their mother for a Christmas gift. The Vista Dome is slightly more expensive, but I think it is worth the extra cost. You sit higher up so the views are lovely and it is more private than the other cars - people are not walking through the aisles to get to the observation deck, wine tasting car, etc. All of us agreed that the food was excellent, not necessarily expected that quality considering it is all cooked on the train. Service was excellent, friendly yet discreet. Water glasses were filled promptly and we were given a sample of the wine that was suggested before making a decision about which wine to order. This time of year (end of Sept), most of the trip is in darkness but the sunset is spectacular over the mountains and vineyards. After the trip all of us agreed that it was a great evening and worth the cost.
