Like its more famous Yellowstone counterpart, this Napa Valley geyser erupts at regular intervals - every forty minutes, in the case of the Calistoga gusher.

Geyser went off every 5 minutes when we went which is good as guide book said every 40. Waiting 40 would've been a disappointing wait as some spurts lasted seconds some 3 or 4 minutes. Geyser impressive and they had comfortable seats nearby but all...More

Expensive visit to see The Old Faitful Geysir. Nice sofas to relax in while you look at the geysir a couple of times. It went off every 5 mns while we were there. In and out in 20 minutes.

For the price I was a little disappointed but had we come prepared we could have made more of it. Very small area. It does offer the geyser, goats and a llama. There is also picnic space and bocce ball. We stayed for maybe 45...More

We visited on a very hot day. Gave the kids a break from wineries. Best to use the Groupon. In addition to the geyser, which went off every 10 minutes when we visited, there is also a petting zoo for the little ones to visit.

So a local resident told us that this was a must see if we were in the area. It's a private attraction so you pay a fee and it's worth a stop. We looked through their geology exhibit and then chilled in one the shade...More

Very quite hotel. There are also BBQ and outside dining areas for your own picnics. Many restaurants and shops to visit one block away or less. Calistoga is a quite & charming little town and a bucket list must do.

Our family of 5 visited this yesterday. It cost us $60 entrance free & took us 1.5 hours to get there. We expected much more for that price & we were ready to go after 10-15 mins! The toilets were disgusting & the place had...More

A waste of time and money. The geyser erupts every few minutes. The other attractions, including a animal farm, are really an anti-social horse and several goats.

When traveling with children/teens, you need to consider their tastes in entertainment. Napa Valley is geared toward adults. The Wine Train is fun for adults; but, children may not appreciate the Calif. food/wine served... More
