California Train Vacations

Glamorous cities, over 800 miles of sparkling Pacific coastline, ancient forests, stunning national parks, and endless adventures beckon in the Golden State. California is diverse, wild, and refined; a state so complex that it easily tops lists of places to visit for travelers globally. Train trips in California venture through the ever-changing terrain, presenting the very best from the Sierra Nevadas to seaside harbors. Tour Southern California aboard Amtrak trains, including the Coast Starlight and Pacific Surfliner, to visit cities like San Diego and Los Angeles and taste the Paso Robles wine region's varietals. Continue up the California coast to the eclectic city of San Francisco. California tours from San Francisco may take you further inland for a Yosemite tour in which travelers can experience all the grandeur of the national parkland or further north to Sonoma or Napa. A ride through the vineyards and small towns of this region on the wine train in Napa Valley is truly an experience to remember. California tour packages come in all shapes and sizes, from 8- or 9-day rail expeditions that traverse multiple regions of the state to quick getaways that include a full day of travel up the California coastline. Travelers can choose from escorted packages and independent adventures that culminate in this magnificent destination. From the pristine sandy beaches of Southern California to the north's lush forests, there is so much to discover in this one Golden State.

“We enjoyed the experience. Considering the unavoidable space restrictions on a train, the goog use of all spaces was impressive.
