  • Wonderful afternoon excursion on the beautifully refurbished rail cars of the Napa Valley wine train. It is not often these days that you get a chance to ride a train through some still in service tracks along the West Coast. Excellent wine selections and very tasty lunch service. Preparation by gourmet chefs with outstanding service. You can take in the view while the train travels at a very leisurely speed through numerous beautiful vineyards. Relaxed fun for young and old. Another must see attraction in the Napa Valley.
  • We had a group of 8 women do the Estate wine tour and had a blast. It was such a unique experience and a great way to see Napa for the first time. Teresa and Lexi were our train car staff and they were awesome! They were very attentive and accommodating to the different allergies within our group. We loved the wineries and the food on the train was delicious as well. All around a great experience.
  • We were given gift certificates for our anniversary last year but weren't able to use them until our anniversary this year. It was well worth the wait. Vista Dome Private Car. Elevated view. The food is exquisite. Our server, Jenna (?), was amazing. Great way to spend my birthday and our anniversary afternoon.
  • Took the collective tour. Great mixture of vineyards on the trip. Food was outstanding. Oscar was a great ambassador and went out of his way to help find our lost sunglasses. We highly recommend to do this at least one day on your visit to Napa valley.
  • Although pricey, we did the 6 hour tour. The food on the train was better than expected, and the tours of the wineries were on point! So interesting finding out the history of wines and those particular wineries!
