Spent a full day with bus driver Mike Small. He was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. He gave us some basic knowledge into the Napa Valley and the wine making process. He gave us a great introduction to the four (4) small wineries (boutique wineries) he would be taking us to and the differences between them.... More

I booked our wine tour ahead of time online. Karl our tour guide picked us up at our hotel promptly at our designated time as confirmed in the online confirmation. Right off the bat he made us feel welcome and introduced us to the passengers already on the bus. We visited 4 smaller wineries. It was a very hot day... More

Scott (Platypus Tour Director) gave us a great introduction before we left downtown Napa. We visited four (4) smaller wineries which afforded us a more personalized tour and undivided attention by the wine operator! We all felt like a big fish in a small pond. The selection of the four wineries was smart. Scott prepared wine and cheese on the... More

We booked a tour with Platypus in August during our trip around California. We were picked up from our Hotel in the morning by our friendly guide for the day and joined the small group (8 people). The van/bus is spacious and has a social seating arrangement so everyone can talk together, and as others have noted there was plenty... More

We were told by several to take a Platypus tour, and we were not disappointed! Our driver Steve was awesome, and we had a blast! We loved visiting the smaller wineries, and felt like part of the family at a couple of them. We coupled our tour with a balloon ride first, and it made for an amazing day in... More

Gregg collected us at our hotel in Main St, American Canyon. He is funny, knowledgeable and generally an all round great guy/guide. We ended up being a party of 10 and Gregg really pulled it together. The wineries were superb, there was no hard sell. All of the tastings were well organised and welcoming. We couldn't have asked for more.... More
