“Napa Valley Wine Train”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

There's something about being on a training, isn't there? And especially when it's paired with great food, good wine and excellent service. That's what you get when you take a trip up valley on the NV Wine Train. Being a local, it's great to take advantage of all the Napa Valley has to offer. And...don't forget your Love Lock (look it up on the Wine Train's website).

“Fantastic - a must do!! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

This was a fantastic day. We were picked up in a luxury coach and were taken to the napa train station. We had time to purchase some souvenirs and take photos and then it was all aboard.

We were on the champagne vista coach, which is more expensive but definitely worth it. After lunch we were able to go down the train and look into the different carriages and ours definitely offered the best views.

The food was great and gourmet. We ordered wine by the glass (added on to our bill) and were told about the history of the vineyards we were passing.

It is a great day to spend in a group, or romantic as couples. I definitely going to try and go back one day!

The service was PERFECT as well; could not fault.

“Napa Valley Must Do”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

This is a must see while visiting Napa Valley. And if you take the Wine Train you must also plan to have lunch or dinner. The food is fabulous and prepared to order on the train as you travel up or down the valley depending on your dining arrangements. It also has a plan that allows for stopping at a couple of wineries along the way to do wine tasting. But you can also do wine tasting ON the train. So relaxing as you view the beautiful Napa Valley without the distraction of having to drive in traffic. You can see many wineries along the way that you can visit on another day on your own. Do it, do it, do it!!!

“Awesome...do the Vista Car”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2014 via mobile

Just got off the lunch train. Great experience! Food and service in the Vista Car was 1st Class. Like stepping back to the 1800's..except more comfortable. Limited seating in the vista car means servers have time to pamper you...stop and chat...point out highlights out the windows. If you are lucky you will get Gerald, the car captain, as your server. Didn't know service like this was still available in the US! The lunch was outstanding. Take the time to walk the entire train..stopping at the wine tasting car. Only $10 to taste (generous pour) 4 top shelf wines. You can request seating on the west side...but really there are no bad seats in the elevated Vista Car. A must do in Napa valley.
