Recently visited napa for my sister's bachlorette party and Marlene was our guide. It was the best trip I've had to napa! Marlene had personal tasting set up at every winery, we were separated from the loud tasting rooms for such a unique experience. I was so impressed with her knowledge of napa wine country and commitment to customer service.... More

Best experience we had in Napa. Chris, our guide, was awesome and knowledgeable. He took us to places you would never find. And he makes a mean sandwich.

My wife and I recently took the tour. Samantha was outstanding. Extremely informative and professional. It was less than 10 minutes before everyone on the bus was laughing and having a great time. We went to some smaller wineries that gave us personalized attention which we would not have gotten else where. Once we arrived at the last winery, no... More

Our guide, Marlene, made this amazing tour even more amazing than we could have anticipated! She was fun, very knowledgeable about wine and the area and very engaging. She took us to four wineries ... all with a different vibe, which gave a well-rounded experience and let us drink some really unique wines! I can't recommend Platypus tours highly enough... More

We booked a tour for 10 people, last minute, and Platypus was nice enough to add another bus to that date for us. There didn't end up being any other passengers outside our party on the bus which was lucky! Our tour guide, Mike, was really fun and took us to some very neat, niche wineries that we probably wouldn't... More

We started out at 10:15 am which I thought was too early but worked out great because we arrived at our first winery at 11:00. Steve was right on time, he was so informative on the history of Napa and the wine making process. He selected small, family owned wineries that were a little off the beaten path, it was... More

Marlene was super nice and picked a good variety for the four wineries so we could see the difference. We had an incredible time. She was knowledgeable, pleasant, and went out of her way to make sure we got the most out of the experience. We were lucky and had a nice group of 8 where nobody got belligerent or... More

Thank you so much for such a wonderful wine tour. Andy Hyman was our tour guide and he was so knowledgeable and fun. We had a fabulous time and everyone should take this tour. You will learn so much about wine and will have be treated so well by the wineries. Thank you Platypus!!

This was our 2nd time visiting the Napa Valley. The first time we ventured out on our own and explored numerous wineries. We had fun but couldn't really relax and enjoy ourselves as much because we were driving. So . . . this time we went online and looked for a wine tour so we could just relax and have... More

The Platypus operator that booked our trip was courteous and informative. We arrived at the Vallejo Ferry port and the van that was waiting for us which was nice. The van was clean and well stocked with water and cheese. The guide named Marlene checked us in and it was already obvious that she was manic and a little out... More
