Is it me I am on a Wine Train and the only drink we were offered was water at 7 dollars a bottle, the food started to arrive before we realised that if you want a drink you have to go out of you way to get one. There was no information about the vineyards and the food was far

Lovely to hear from you on your Group of 40 aboard a Private Wine Train journey was the Wine Train being the highlight of your 4-day event. We couldn't agree with you more. Executive Chef Donald Young has brought a wealth of experience and culinary expertise to the Wine Train the last 3 years. The culinary team exceeds expectations. We will ensure the leadership and operations team know that you appreciated Jacob and Jesse and the rest of the staff on board as well. Thank you again for booking with us; please do come back again.

The Gourmet Lunch was delicious and the train ride was very nice. There were several stops on the way back for some reason which was a little annoying. The write up mentioned there would be someone explaining the difference between the different wineries, however no one did.

We did the gourmet lunch and Raymond winery. Once we arrived at the train station we waited over an hour for tour to start. Once we started, we relaxed and enjoyed the drive to Raymond Winery. Raymond winery was excellent and the tastings were wonderful. Then off to the train

We are so glad you enjoyed the Gourmet Express Lunch and Raymond Winery Tour. Love to hear you enjoyed our fine cuisine, and the service was exceptions. Regarding the transportation you selected from San Francisco to Napa. it sounds as if you choose the Ferry from the Terminal Building in SF at the Embarcadero, that departs early in the morning and returns to SF around 6:30 pm at night. The SF Connection is a great option for folks that don't mind the set schedule. Guest may want to consider other modes of transportation to Napa such as rental car, care service companies.

This was a very fun tour. The wine train was neat. The food was excellent and the train itself was plush and deluxe. I wish the trip were longer. It would have been nice to have time to enjoy the lounge cars. The wine tour that accompanied the train trip was exceptional!
