I organized our group of 7 for a bachelorette wine tasting tour and I cannot say enough about SUPER DAVE our host. He definitely is named SUPER DAVE for a reason. From asking our preferences on wineries during the planning phase, being extremely prompt and on-time to pick us up (despite that our house was miles up a mountain top... More

We enjoyed the Platypus Wine Tour immensely. We were picked up at our hotel at 10:00 AM and the tour lasted until approximately 6:00 PM. There were eleven people in the van. At first I thought this might be too many, but we were seated comfortably and enjoyed each other's company so much that, at the end of the tour,... More

We took the tour though Napa valley, the day after the earthquake hit! First we cancelled on Sunday, then after letting our minds settle, we rebooked it. Napa was hit, but they seemed to take it in stride. Mike was our tour guide and he was fantastic! he took us to four vineyards/wineries after sitting and discussing the tour with... More

We have taken a Platypus Tour (group and private) each of the past two years. We have found them to be well organized and an enjoyable way to spend the day. The tours tend to concentrate on the smaller wineries featuring wines you will not usually find outside of the bay area. Our guides have been pleasant, engaging, personable and... More

We would highly recommend this intimate tour. We did the Sonoma tour and you get to visit smaller wineries off the tourist path. The tastings were set up just for us and we learned a lot of new things about wine. You get to spend about an hour at each place and Platypus lays out a very nice little lunch... More

This tour was phenomenal! The choices in wineries were perfect, the bus was comfortable and safe, and the staff were wonderful! In the beginning of the tour, Don Rickard personally welcomed us and checked-in to see how we, our homes, and workplaces were doing after the earthquake. He was very kind towards us and very passionate about his business. He... More

A few years ago we joined a Platypus tour while in Napa. Since we had so much fun then, we joined a tour on our recent visit to Sonoma. Just a great experience meeting new people and visiting some of the smaller wineries. As with our first trip in Napa, our tour guide was fantastic! Thanks Army and Platypus tours... More

Steve did a wonderful job as our tour guide. He was very knowledgeable about the history of Napa and process of wine making. We could tell that he really enjoys what he does and that a great deal of pride goes into his selection of wineries and preparation of lunch. We were newbies to wine tasting and really felt respected... More
