  • This was a wonderful experience. The food was exquisite. The service was friendly & surprisingly quick. The surroundings were elegant and comfortable. When we entered the train station, there were so many people, but they have the whole system down to a science! Once we entered the train car and were shown to our seats, the rest of the crowd disappeared into their train cars. The experience became just my husband and me. Later, we spoke with another couple, from another part of the country, which enriched our experience. This is definitely a must do experience!
  • Amazing. The entire staff is great. Friendly and warm smiles! The trip was fun and the time flew by. Food was exceptional and the guides at the winery were knowledgable. They really work had at making sure you have a great experience! Would do this again in a heartbeat.
  • A really neat way to see Napa Valley! Gives you a good idea when deciding what will wineries to visit all the while dining on some amazing dishes. My husband and I did the Vista Dome Lunch so we had a delicious 4 course meal. You also get a chance to wander around the beautiful train ! The wine train is great for dates and family outings as they do sometimes organise family friendly events.
  • I always thought this would be a very touristy and maybe not-so-enjoyable thing to do in Napa. I was very wrong and I had such a great time on the wine train for lunch. I recommend splurging on the vista dome where you can enjoy better views and light especially on a sunny day. We enjoyed a nice bottle of Chandon sparkling wine and some dessert wine with dessert. We also enjoyed very good food and coffee. Definitely a nice way to enjoy wine country.
  • Very expensive. Can do it once. The staff were very nice. Wine list was very good. Food was also good. The chicken dish could've been better.
