    Napa Valley Wine Train
    Stop: 11 hours - Admission included
    When you arrive in Napa, hop aboard the famous Napa Valley Wine Train! You'll be directed to your seat. Then, simply sit back and soak in impeccable views of Napa’s stunning vineyards as you travel north to the quaint village of St Helena, passing the towns of Yountville, Oakville and Rutherford along the way. When your eyes aren't pasted to the large viewing windows, you’re encouraged to explore this unique train during your journey – you may even visit the kitchen car to watch the chefs prepare your gourmet meal. You’ll sit in your choice of the first or second seating section, depending on when you’d like to enjoy your lunch (see Schedule & Pricing for details). Choose from a fresh, seasonal menu, and enjoy a delicious meal prepared to your specifications (see Itinerary below for a sample menu). This highly acclaimed restaurant prides itself in using fresh ingredients and sustainable produce, as well as humanely raised meats and line-caught or farmed fish. Before or after your meal, head to the lounge car to enjoy a cocktail or glass of wine from the bar (own expense) and lounge on the love seats. Your Napa Valley Wine Train experience will end in the early evening, when you'll board the shuttle for your return trip to Vallejo. You’ll then hop on the 5:15pm ferry to return to San Francisco.

The breakfast provided was a cold croissant, which was hard to eat while crammed on the bus while driving out to the golden gate. Not a big deal but not as described. The wineries we visited were beautiful and the highlight of the day. After visiting 4 wineries we were

Good Morning, It sounds as though you may have booked through another company to travel to the Wine Train. There is an option to travel direct to us and the trip on the train is in total three hours. We were so disapointed to read you did not enjoy your time in our care. Please know we have shared your feedback with our Management Team so that we can research what may have happened. We want to apologize for not meeting your expectation. Please know we take great pride in our customer service and experience and will be researching to see what may have happened during your visit. We hope you will reconsider and visit us again the next time your travels bring you to Napa Valley. Respectfully, Ragina Garcia Director of Customer Service

Our deal took us on the ferry across the bay to Vallejo, where we had a small luxury coach to ourselves to take us to the Tour centre, which was heaving with people waiting for their tour, from a huge selection of options. The train was a lovely old train, not unlike the Orient

Responded 30 Nov 2018
We were happy to read your Thanksgiving dinner was fantastic, but sorry to learn you felt the ride was too long. Due to the speed of the train being 15-18 MPH, and the full journey is a 36 mile trip, it does take at least 3 hours to complete the round trip rail experience. We are looking into the fogging of the windows.
