My husband and I booked Platypus Wine Tours for touring around Napa on my birthday this August and were SO pleased with the experience. They were ALMOST the lowest price quote we received which helped but the actual reason we decided to go with them was because they agreed to suggest an itinerary based on what we wanted to experience....

The Platypus Tour with Mark as our connisseur and guide, sifted through over 400 local Napa wineries to find and visit 4 smaller but equally great boutique wineries. The selection ranged from one of the oldest wineries established in the 1860's such as Fulton, to a producer-distributor of several local vintners at Silenus (including Mondavi's former expert), to Tuload with...

It was a great day, first we ride on balloon, then the wine tour begins with Pete. He picked up us and it was really nice. Introduce himself, ask some information about us and let us know how was the plan. So we then go and pick up two couples and begin the ride. We went to four wineries and... More

We had a wonderful day with Kelli. Her friendly attention to detail and pleasant customer service contributed to our wonderful day. We saw a variety of wineries and have no suggestions for improvement.

Our Platypus wine tour with Karl was the highlight of our honeymoon in Napa. Each vineyard provided a new perspective and unique tastings. The day was fun and informative and relaxed, and we couldn't have been happier with the service of Platypus tours! We would definitely go again if we were to go back to the Napa valley.

This was a good tour and it was nice to not have to worry about where to go and driving. The tour took the group of 8 on a large comfortable shuttle bus. They went to wineries that we would never be able to find or get into on our own. They were small wineries with their own flare. We... More

My boyfriend and I only stayed in napa valley for 2 nights and we felt this tour was a great way to get the most out of our short trip. We were picked up and taken to 4 wineries, each very different from each other. It was a very educational tour and we learned loads while the wine flowed in... More

Had a great time with Pete on our wine tour for our 25th Anniversary. We went to four wineries and had a great lunch and cheese and crackers. Pete was very informative and we had a great group. Would recommend and go again.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our wine tour with Platypus and Allison our guide. She took us to some wineries where we were able to taste and purchase wine that would not be sold anywhere else. We particularly liked Dahl Winery and Hopper Creek Winery. Came out of the tour knowing how to enjoy wine more than I do... More
