Took the Russian River/Healdsburg area tour and had a good time, but not $99 (plus $15 per-person tip and about $50 per person in wine tasting fees) per person's worth of a good time. Our driver (Dave) was personable, but did nothing to foster interaction and conversation among his riders - it was up to us to break the ice,... More

My wife and I had a truly enjoyable experience with platypus wine tours. Mike was our guide and he was extremely welcoming, funny, and knowledgeable from the moment we first got on the bus. He even made us a great lunch and arranged dinner reservations as well! The wineries on our tour were fantastic. Would love to do it again.

We loved visiting small boutique wineries and really enjoyed meeting owners & wine makers. It was an awesome experience and driver Mike picked some great ones to visit. Highly recommend this tour.

What a way to see Napa and meet good people! Out tour guide, Mike, was awesome. He was a very good tour guide. He never let the tempo of the day die down. He took us to some lovely, exciting small wineries that make some really good wine. The lunch that was served was delicious. I can't really say enough... More

Platypus tours provided my friends and I (early 20s) with a wonderful day of tasting wines, meeting passionate winemakers, and exploring the beautiful valley. Mike was our driver/tour guide for the day and he was spectacular. He knew a lot of information about the area, including little facts as we went along. Waters, lunch, and a cheese plate were included... More

We were visiting Napa Valley for our honeymoon and booked the Platypus tour last minute through our B&B. Our driver was Mike and he was awesome. There was a total of 11 of us and we visited 4 different wineries. All the wineries were not too big and had excellent wines at a reasonable price point. The other people who... More

My life long friend and I were celebrating our 50th birthdays in Napa and had a fabulous day with Mike and Platypus Wine Tours. The group was fabulous, the vineyards we went to were the best of the week. Much more approachable and informative. I would highly recommend Platypus Wine Tours to anyone coming up to Napa.

What a great tour! Mark, our guide, was informative and funny and each winery we went to was very different from the last. I appreciate the attention to detail and the support for small batch, local wineries and winemakers. The lunch was fantastic with a special gluten-free offering prepared. Would highly recommend this for wine newbies and experts alike! Lots... More

This was not our first trip to Napa, so we knew several wineries that we wanted to visit. We also knew that if we did this on our own, one of us would have to abstain from tasting, which is no fun. This was an award trip for my company, with about 25 other couples, but I knew none of... More

We did the Platypus Wine Tour which was arranged by the Napa River Inn. Our driver, Larry, was great; he made the day even more enjoyable; he didn't take himself too serious. We stopped at four wineries, ranging from large to small. They provided lunch at one of the wineries and also provided cheese and crackers on the tour bus.... More
