Customer Reviews

Well Worth It!

We took the “Legacy Experience,” and it was our first visit to Napa. Staff was great. Train was clean and comfortable. Views were amazing. Food was great. Visits to wineries were wonderful. Highly recommend.

A Must Thing To Do While In Napa

The most fun thing to do in Napa! Highly recommend to everyone! I recommend the Legacy tour with food included. The food was delicious as were the wines that we tasted on board. The 2 wineries we stopped at were informative and offered great wine to taste and buy.

Just Book It!

What an experience. The train, the wine, the food, the staff, the views, the people you will meet, it’s all just special, and worthy of the price of admission. Our car is just so beautiful and comfortable, we were experiencing an abnormally cool morning, and to our surprise, the train car was so comfortably warm, and by the afternoon, the AC matched the warmth outside. J is the best, and I mean the best, I hope all that book has the pleasure of experiencing her wealth of knowledge and her warm, welcoming personality. Jorge knows how to entertain, an amazing MC, and his dance party at the end is a perfect finale. Oh, and about the wine and food….chef’s kiss. My pork tenderloin was dangerously good, and my wife’s beef tenderloin made me dip into her plate more than once. Also, I don’t have the most expert palate, but the wines on the train are so good! Long story short, just book it and prepared to feel like its one of the best decisions you’ll make in life

Fantastic Way to see Napa Valley

The Wine Train was a fantastic experience (Legacy Tour). The staff/team members at the Depot and on the train were all great and truly cared about delivering an unforgettable experience. We’re looking forward to returning and Napa and experiencing The Wine Train, again!

Fun Experience on the Train

Riding the Napa Valley Wine Train was a great experience. The staff was so accommodating and upbeat, and the food was excellent. The stops for wine tasting were very well run and informative, and we learned much about the history of the area. By the end of the ride there were many of the passengers dancing to music in the open air car, celebrating a great time.

Wonderful!

The Legacy Tour is wonderful! Good food. Good wine. Great fun.

Met the Best People, Had the Best Food

This trip was absolutely magical for us. We are three childhood friends in our mid thirties, and really wanted to do this and it did not disappoint. The food was incredible, the views and experience was great, our wine tasting with Miguel was so fun and the dance party with the great music in the open air cart was my favorite of all. We met a couple of ladies celebrating their retirement and 70th birthday and they were the best company as well, overall we are forever going to cherish this memory.

A magical girls trip experience!!

This was the most magical day! The staff was amazing, kept everyone hyped up and taught us so much about wine and the wine-making processes. The food and wine were exceptional. The 2 wineries were visited offered beautiful tastings and their grounds were lovely.
