What You Can Expect

Napa Valley Wine Train with Gourmet Lunch and Transport from San Francisco

Scenic Ferry from San Francisco

Arrive at the Ferry Building in San Francisco to board a ferry (Monday-Friday) or bus (weekends) to Vallejo. In Vallejo, transfer to a shuttle that will take you to the starting point of the Napa Valley Wine Train.

Climb aboard the antique restored train, where you'll be shown to your seat and poured a welcome glass of wine. Relax and enjoy the views out of the train's large glass windows as it travels north through Yountville, Oakville and Rutherford on the route to St Helena.

Take a break from the gazing at the scenery to explore the antique train. Visit the kitchen car to watch your gourmet lunch being prepared or stop by the lounge car to enjoy a cocktail or another glass of wine (own expense.)

Choose the first or second lunch seating (see Schedule & Pricing below for details.) The menu is seasonal, and features fresh, in-season ingredients (see Itinerary below for a sample menu.) The highly-acclaimed restaurant uses sustainable meat and produce and sources ingredients from within the Napa Valley whenever possible.

Hop off the Wine Train in St Helena in the early evening to board the shuttle for Vallejo, and take the ferry or bus back to San Francisco.

This was a great experience and exactly as described when you book. The bus to Napa we went on a Saturday was good, the driver was informative and entertaining. The train ride was outstanding. We ate lunch in the second seating they tell you when you get there if you are first or second seating. The scenery was great. It was a a cold, rainy day. At this time of year the vineyards are bare, but the hills were green and the fruit trees were in bloom. The food and drink on the train was excellent. In our party we had the salmon, steak and chicken and everyone was very happy with their food. There was about an hour of free time before and an hour and a half after the train ride in downtown Napa. The ferry ride back to SF was fine. We didn't know there were two stops - you can get off at Pier 39/Fisherman's Wharf or at the Ferry Building where the tour started.

I really had a wonderful day on this tour, I got two wine tasting boards so I drank five glasses of different wines whilst relaxing in the lounge on the first half of the tour and then the next whilst having a superb lunch in the restaurant. What a marvelous tour, relaxing, excellent service and very tasty food with some good wines from the Napa valley that your traveling through.
Highly recommend this tour.
