Hotel Yountville suggested Platapus for a wine tour. We went on an afternoon wine tour with 4 other couples and their recommendation was fantastic! The vehicle (Annabelle) was luxurious and Alison was an insightful and interesting guide (the A team for sure!). The best part was that we didnt go to the big name busy wineries but to small family... More

We were absolutely impressed and extremely pleased with the tour. The wineries we visited were all great and we had a really good experience. Even though we were in a group, the experience felt special and there was a lot of attention to detail on the little things that matter such as the food, the wineries and locations selected, etc....

I've done several wine tours/tastings in the U.S. and Europe but my recent visit to the Napa wineries through Platypus was, by far, the best. We visited 4 small wineries and avoided the crowded tourist spots which I really appreciated. Our driver/guide, Greta, couldn't have been more accommodating. We wanted to spend extra time at the Tudal vineyards so she... More

We planned this tour on our own after seeing that our B&B also suggests their guests use them. Steve Hunter (our driver/guide) arrived at exactly the time we were given and greeted us with warmth and courtesy. The van/bus was clean and fully stocked with water. We had a total of 8 people on our tour. By the end of... More

I don't normally like group tours, but this was fantastic: 4 different vineyards with different styles and setups picked by the wonderful Michelle. I learnt a lot about wine and I thought I had a good knowledge. A wonderful day out, topped off by a great cheese board before we left the last vineyard.

Can't recommend this tour enough. Our guide, Michelle was fantastic and pitched the tour just right for our young and energetic group. We went to 4 varied wineries from very small to more established. Each made an impact and I was impressed that each stop was not a repeat of the last and we got to see and hear different... More

Our tour guide, Chris Largent, was fantastic from the first time we spoke a couple of months before our trip. He got a good understanding of what we were hoping to get out our day touring beautiful wine country. He was then able to provide great feedback and suggestions so we could come up with the perfect itinerary. Day of... More

Every part of the trip was professional and perfect. Mark, our tour guide, was a cool laid back dude that took us to four amazing wineries and kept us well feed along the way. Great price for the experience and not having to worry about how much you drink.

We never realized how much there was to see and do in Napa, until last weekend. The Platypus Tour was the best way we could have done it! We got a feel for the area, food and restaurant recommendations, met the wine makers, and of course drank some amazing wine! It was a great day!

Cannot rave enough about how great this was! Hit up four wineries delightful cheese on the bus and later picnic lunch with croissant sandwiches and quinoa salad plus dessert. David our tour guide was a sweat heart and very knowledgable. Just having an air conditioned ride and cold water was priceless. I will do this again when I return with... More
