Napa Valley Wine Train Reviews
My fiancé and I love trains and great wine, so this was a must do on our NAPA list. The price is high, but the experience is great. We loved all the food, we didn't really even mind paying the $20... more »
We really enjoyed the route we did and exploring the region while on the train. We took the gastronomic experience and since we are a lot into food, we were expecting more. Some dishes were nicely... more »
My entire experience with the Napa Valley Wine Train was fabulous! Everyone that I encountered was friendly and professional. Everything from the bus we took to the vineyard, to the vineyard tour, to the food on the train was excellent. I especially want to acknowledge our Wine Educator, Tasha, who met us at the train station and accompanied my group of 3 on our tour at the Raymond Vineyard. She was personable, engaging, had a great sense of humor, and exhibited lots of knowledge about the area. Our tour guide at the Raymond Vineyard, Maha, was also great. Like Tasha, she was also very knowledgeable, professional, and pleasant. After our vineyard tour, we had lunch on the wine train. The ambiance was beautiful and the food was absolutely delicious! I had the soup of the day (potato and leek), the entree that included salmon and lobster tail, and the lemon pound cake for dessert. While everything was scrumptious, that soup was the best potato and leek soup I have ever had! The only (very small) criticism I have is that it would be nice if a beverage other than water and hot tea or coffee were offered as part of the meal on the train. You can certainly buy other drinks, but they cost extra in addition to what you've already paid. I highly recommend the Napa Valley Wine Train and the package that includes the tour of the Raymond Vineyard!
Can't recommend this enough. Did the legacy day tour and was the most memorable experience of Napa valley. Great tours of the Wineries and an amazing service from the train staff. A must if this is your first visit to Napa.
