We took a Dinner train, in the Vista Dome car. Im a bigger guy, but there are plenty bigger than me, and I found the tables MUCH to tight, and extremely uncomfortable. It was also very hot in the car, at least the night we were there. The pacing of the meal was very slow, the whole trip takes like... More

The welcome area is nice and we'll organized. We enjoyed individual glasses of welcome Chardonnay and cheese platters in a viewing car as we headed north for an hour or so. On the return we went 3 cars down for a lunch from a nice selection of choices that were very nicely prepared. The train is kid friendly but they... More

If you're looking for an opportunity to see the sites, I recommend taking the wine train first. We found a lot of wineries that we might have otherwise missed had we not taken the train. The service and food is average, but riding a train will always be a great experience for me. This is a delayed review, traveled December... More

We were recommended to do the wine train and I'm so glad we made the effort to get there. The checking process was a breeze and the boarding lounge nice and comfortable. The boarding process was quick and seamless. The only negative was the obligatory photo stop on the way to the carriage. But that was only minor and we... More

Lovely food and staff knowledge of the area and wineries was great, we enjoyed visiting the selected wineries and tasting what was on offer as well as learning the history behind them, would recommend this tour to anyone - single, couple or group that enjoyed wine and mingling with others.

Thank Winniemi2
