We booked the Platypus Wine Tour while on our honeymoon in Napa. It was our second day of winery tours, and while we enjoyed the first day (not with Platypus) day 2 was unforgettable. Greg, our driver/tour guide/wine expert/comedian/chef..... Was AWESOME! We visited 4 wineries, each of them were completely different and unique. We made fast friends with the other... More

Had a great day with Toni, who was very knowledgeable and personable. Went to five smaller wineries that we most likely would have never found on our own. They were; Ballentine, Summers, Tedeschi, Tamber Bay, and Bennett Lane. A great and memorable day thanks to the mandatory bottle of water between every stop.

I would highly recommend this company for wine tours. Our driver was Steve and he was excellent! Small bus with a total of 6 couples, all of which were very pleasant. We visited 4 wineries: ZD(good), Grigich Hills (Excellent), Merryvale (not very good - employee doing the tasting didn't seem interested in being there) and David Fulton (the best one... More

This was one of the best tours we've been on period. Very fun, educational. Our tour guide was knowledgeable, funny, and entertaining. She took us in and around Napa with ease and stopped periodically to point out other wine related interesting tidbits. We came away with a heightened awareness of wine and how to buy and enjoy it. This tour... More

Our driver and guide, Toni was great and very knowledgeable about wine. We had a great time meeting new people and tasting wines that I would never select myself ( and buying them!). I highly recommend the trip but eat a good breakfast as there is a lot of wine to be drunk!

Amazing day with Chris. Highly recommend this tour. It's the best way to see Napa Valley. Flora Springs, David Fulton, Rutherford Ranch. Hopper Creek. Awesome!

We had a great time while exploring some of Napa's finest wineries with Platypus Wine Tours. Our guide, Chris, was excellent and his energy was infectious within our group. He was very thoughtful, keeping a full stock of bottled water and chilled towels to combat the uncharacteristically hot weather. In addition, he provided a selection of cheese and crackers and...

Platypus was recommended to us by the 1801 First B & B, and we couldn't have happier. Steve Hunter had customized the day to accommodate the 6 couples on our tour. The wineries he had chosen were perfect for our group! Steve was very knowledgable and hospitable. We thoroughly enjoyed the other couples and made for an awesome day! Highly... More

Spent a fun day touring four wineries. The tour guide was interesting and personable. We were given four very different wineries on the itinerary. Two were great; two were not our cup of tea. And that's fine: How would we know if we hadn't tried them? We considered it a good value, given that we hit four in one day,... More

We've experienced wine tours all over the world and this definitely one of the best. Comfortable transport, knowledgeable and friendly guide (Andy Hyman) and four excellent wineries. Particularly enjoyed the talks(and wines!) at Hopper Creek and St Clair Brown. The guy at the former (apologies I can't remember his name) was both informative and funny and the co-owner (Ms St...
