The scenery is unique and the wine is excellent, so why not take out the full potential of such a trip? The trip, as it is today, is nothing else than a slow and dumb trip, where you are able to buy wine at one...More

The train was brightly coloured and cute, but that was it. After the friendly driver greeted us and collected our tickets, we never heard from him again. There was absolutely no commentary at all, which if present could definitely have improved the experience greatly. It...More

We took it a few years back. Kids loved it! The ride was awesome for kids, though they cared a lot less than an adult in the impeccable view over the lake. It is only for tourism season.

I have to concur with several other reviewers when they say the views were lovely but the commentary somewhat lacking. We were there on the "shoulder" season prior to the start of summer season and therefore the only ones on the train. It was romantic...More

The view was amazing, but the driver did not give us any information about how the wine is made. It is only a ride in train through the vineyards. After the ride we went into a small cave to drink some wine ( it was...More

I took the train solo and it was definitely worth it. The views were absolutely breathtaking. I was hoping to stop at more than one cellar, but the one we did stop at was amazing. The conductor was great and let me get off in...More
