Our experience on the Old Vine Express was the most fun we’ve had in months! I booked 4 seats for my mom’s birthday and we had so much fun. We have ridden the Napa Valley Wine Train also, and this one is so much more lively and fun! The Napa one is very nice but it is a little too fancy for our taste. The old vine express is MUCH better if you’re looking for a fun, upbeat Saturday night. The atmosphere is much more relaxed than the train in Napa, and much more lively and fun with live music on board and awesome staff who are not “snooty”, like some people in the wine industry. Everything about this night was a blast and I have already recommended it to all of my friends, family, and coworkers. Thanks, Sacramento River train!

The Sacramento River Train was such a fun experience. I had two kids with me, and they had the best time. Being able to freely walk to each car was really nice. The park halfway was a really cool experience. I don't think the kids will ever forget it. Thank you for the great memories.

We went on the Old Vine Express this past weekend for my husbands birthday. It was great! It couldn’t of been a pretty day to stand outside in the open air cars and listen to music! The wine was delicious too. We went with another couple, and we all enjoyed ourselves. Next, we want to try the beer train!

SPECTACULAR! We traveled with a 2 year old who was thoroughly entertained the entire trip! So much so that we avoided all melt downs and she rewarded us with a marvelous nap on the ride home! We will be making this an annual trip!

We’ve ridden the Murder Mystery Train, the Magical Christmas Train and now the Pumpkin Train. We absolutely loved each experience. The staff is always very personable and the experience/activities on each train are so much fun for the whole family.

My husband and I took our first train ride on the Sacramento River Train for our anniversary. It was one of the best times we had doing something new and different. I highly recommend trying them out for any of their rides. Very fun, great show, amazing food, clean train, great customer service, loved the actors! We will be taking our kids next for the Christmas ride.

My husband loves trains so we try and ride as many as we can. The crew was friendly, the entertainment was fun, the BBQ dinner setting near the River was delicious and the scenery along the way was beautiful. We enjoyed the whole evening.

From start to finish, the experience was excellent. We came as a family (husband, self, our 3 and 5 year old sons) to celebrate my husband's birthday. We were greeted as we got out of our car, walked through the boarding. "Stumpy" engaged with our kiddos. Each "character" answered their questions and had fun with them. Even at the stop, getting to "pan" was such fun for them. Learning about the train, the region, and history was informative and kept the experience flowing.

No need to go to Napa! Very large wine selection! Too much fun!



This was our first experience on the Beer Train and we had so much fun! I was not expecting to have so many friendly non-confrontational intoxicated people in one space. LoL Thank you to all the breweries that participated. My husband and I will be making this an annual thing!

My husband I had a great experience, talking about going on the Wine Train. All the staff was wonderful and very friendly. Band was good and beer even better.
