We used Platypus for both a group tour with Chris and a private tour with Jaime, and were delighted with both. The drivers were friendly but not overbearing, the wineries they selected were beautiful and had excellent wines. We loved the lunch and snacks, too. Both tours were first class the whole way. We got such great service that we... More

Karl was an amazing guide. We learned so much about the valley and wine it was exactly what we wanted. Great lunch and snacks and the day flew by. All wines were excellent too. I would highly recommend this over driving yourself around. We enjoyed it so much we would do it again.

Steve was a wonderful guide and the tour was fabulous. The group was lots of fun and we will surely do another tour if we return to Napa Valley.

I booked our tour with Platypus on faith that the hotel we stayed would only work with the best. Thankfully I was correct. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and couldn't be happier with the time we had. Our guide for the day was Karl and he did an amazing job of showing us some really great wineries and went out... More

Went on the $99 tour with a friend of mine and we both loved it. There were 8 of us on the tour in total inc. myself and my friend - all in our 20s and 30s - and we had a great time visiting the vineyards (4 in total) and hanging out on the tour bus while Greta drove... More

Sam Honey was our guide and he was terrific! He was so informative and took us to vineyards we never would have found by ourselves. The wine was great and the tour exceeded our expectations! I recommend it.

This being our first time in Napa and on our honeymoon, we had such a great time! We were able to visit numerous wineries and enjoy the Napa experience. Such a beautiful valley! Jaime was very knowledgeable and catered to our particular wine tastes. There's no doubt that we would choose Platypus again for our next visit. We highly recommend... More

This is our third trip to Napa. Each time previously, we drove ourselves or teamed up with friends to travel to our favorite wineries. While we wanted someone to drive for us around for a change, we were afraid of where we'd be taken to and being two people of dozens packed into a bus. We had an outstanding day... More

She took us to several great boutique wineries for tasting including Rutherford where we experienced a wine and chocolate tasting.... More

My wife and I came out for a spring retreat to Napa. We had not been to Napa before, and wanted to tour without hitting the obvious, biggest wineries, yet having a great experience. We also didn't want the pretense of those that are too serious about "knowing" wine. Based on the reviews here, it seemed Platypus would fit the... More
