It was my second tour with Platypus, this time a friend and I celebrating our 75th birthdays! This is the only way to really get a look at the Napa winery scene. You can always go to the "big boys" on your own, but to see 4 small boutique wineries intimately, makes for an amazing day. Mark was great as... More

We had a great wine tasting tour through the Napa Valley lead by Evonne Karie. Her knowledge for the area and her breath of fresh area was second to none. I highly recommend her for a tour within Napa Valkey

Came out to Napa for my birthday with my boyfriend and I booked a tour with Platypus. We had such a great time and would definately book with them again. We went to four different smaller wineries and felt we got a great personalized experience. Ask for Mike Smalls, he was a great guide and made the day very enjoyable... More

Mike was great, makes a massive difference having a guide who really loves what he does. Food they did for us was really good, and to top it off this tour was hundreds of dollars cheaper than a private tour. Highly recommend these guys

What a great day touring Napa Valley! We would highly recommend using Platypus Wine Tours and our tour guide and driver Dave was fantastic! The bus was very spacious and comfortable and Dave made all of us on the tour bus feel welcomed and relaxed. We toured four very different vineyards which made our experience interesting and fun. Dave was... More

Our day of wine tasting included 4 stops at fabulous wineries in Napa Valley. Our driver, Pete, was welcoming and informative. He set the stage for a fun day with new friends. All tastings were reasonably priced and included great wines. The best part was being able to enjoy all the tastings without concern about driving home. Will definitely take... More

We had a small bachellorette party that wanted to make sure we got the full Napa experience, without the crowds and having to worry about driving. Mike Small was our tour guide and he was pretty awesome. We had all been to Napa before, but never with a guided tour. It was nice to know the day was taken care... More

This was my first 'official' wine tour through Napa Valley and I could not have been more pleased. We booked the tour as a bachelorette party with most of my bridesmaids and felt we received a huge value for our money. Mike, our tour guide, was knowledgeable about the wineries and gave us educational information before/during/after each stop to help... More

Yvonne, our driver was wonderful and she seemed to truly enjoy taking us on the tour. She was chatty and knowledgeable of the area and the wineries and provided us with a tasty picnic lunch. It was a full day (10:30 to 6:00) and we enjoyed every minute of it.

I could not have been more pleased with my tour and group. I was a bit apprehensive about going on a tour by myself, but after speaking with different people in Napa, Platypus seemed like the perfect tour for me. From the beginning, Alison made all of us comfortable. She tailored the tour to our preferences and provided great Napa... More
