Very enjoyable, but on the expensive side for a 3 hour trip. The train ride itself was not very long but the visit to the winery was very good and they gave everyone more than the usual amount of wines to taste.
It was fun, but the meal and dessert were just alright. Choices were either Carrot cake OR Pumpkin with chocolate Mousse for the desserts. For the price we paid, they should have at least included a glass of wine.Otherwise, the train ride was fun and the wine tpur at Grgich was fun.
From the Shuttle to the Group Guide to the Vineyard Guide to the Train was absolutely an incredible experience too incredible for words. Just do it!
Raymond tour guide was very knowledgeable and fun. The train, lunch and service were amazing!
Perfect way to become familiar with the area . Gourmet meal was outstanding , as was the train experience . The Ambassador tour option is money well spent as you receive two private wine tours.
Raymond Winery should make your list on stops. The train was top notch service. Amanda saw to it that we were looked after well.
What a great day out! It was a hot day in Napa so this was the best way to see the valley, learn its history, drink some wine and have a fabulous meal too! The staff n the wine train couldn't be more helpful, it's a vey slick operation from ferry to bus pick to actual train journey. I'm gluten intolerant and that was no hassle for the team. I thoroughly recommend the Ambassador wine train tour.
