My fiancée and I were in Napa for the weekend and wanted to drink some wine, with out the risk of driving ourselves around..... We booked a group tour with Platypus. Our driver was Toni, a knowledgeable and personable person. She showed us not only great winery's, but a great time! We were hesitant to do a group tour because... More

Platypus was recommended to me by a co-worker who gave rave reviews about her tour in Napa a couple months ago and she was spot on! Our tour guide for the day was Mike and right from the start he was very enthusiastic about ensuring we had a great day. There were 12 of us on the tour, visiting 4... More

My daughter had visited Napa several years ago and recommended Platypus Tours to us! That turned out to be by far my favorite part of our stay! We visited 4 unique wineries with each one offering ample tastings and lots of local folklore to accompany them! Our tour guide, Mike was so personable and greatly contributed to the success of...

The day before our tour, our group of four was touring Sonoma on our own and we were concerned about accidentally visiting places that were on our tour agenda for the next day (especially when we spotted a Platypus bus at one of them). When I called Platypus to check, they cheerfully made a note of which places we were... More

I would highly recommend this wine tour. Our host was Mike and he was personable, knowledgeable, fun and made the experience everything you would expect, especially for first-timers to Napa Valley like ourselves. We visited 4 wineries - all beautiful and exquisite in their own right - and all had good selections of wines. The price of the tour was... More

He made sure that we had an enjoyable experience, and also catered to my allergic needs when preparing lunch. I am planning to come back for another wine tasting tour, and I will request... More

I've used Platypus tours twice and both experiences were amazing! I travel for work so am always solo when site seeing and love how friendly everyone is on these tours. Mike was my tour guide recently and he was great. He was personable and knowledgeable about the wine making process. He was also really laid back and went with the... More

Mike Small, our entertaining Platypus guide, made the tour of some exceptional Napa wineries a real treat. Rather than take us to the large wineries, he took us to four small wineries that featured superb wines and interesting hosts. He served a great lunch al fresco, cheese and crackers at the end, and cold water was always available. We will... More

We had a knowledgeable, helpful, friendly tour guide named Tony (Tonni?). She was so great -- helped bag up all our wines as we purchased them and took them to the bus for us. We visited 4 places and had a tasty lunch at one of them. All in all it was a great day.
