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

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!

My wife and I decided to vacation in California for a week April 5th-12th and check out the sites. One of the major must do's was visiting Napa/Sonoma Valley. We heard the tours were the way to go so I ventured to tripadvisor to see who's trending. Platypus was up there with the best rated and had a nice affordable... More

3 of us girls were in town to celebrate a 50th birthday. Platypus was recommended by our hotel. It was a FANTASTIC day on so many levels. Our guide, Andy, was easy going, knowledgeable, patient and fun. The wineries of choice were boutique wineries, off the beaten path and guides were so attentive to our group. The tastings were yummy.... More
