Our group of 3 took part in a midweek platypus tour through napa. We had a fantastic day and were happy with the selection of wineries. Our driver Chris was friendly and knowledgable and really set us up for a good day. I thought the price was reasonable considering the prices of other tours I have seen in the area... More

We were picked up at our hotel in Napa at 10 am and the tour finished at 6.30 pm, though I think we went longer because we were chatting so much with the last wine maker. We visited 4 wineries, and at each place we were greeted with either a tour or a special area that had been set up... More

I truly cannot say enough good things about my experience with Platypus Wine Tours! My best friend and I had the best time. Chris was a fantastic guide and also DJ as we toured off the beaten path wineries and vineyards! We got to know some wonderful people and left feeling like we'd done Napa the best way it could...

My husband and I had an amazing time with Greta! We visited smaller boutique wineries, met the owners and tasted some wonderful wine. The included lunch was delicious and very welcome a couple of hours into wine tasting. Definitely a way to get off the beaten path and explore some of the smaller wineries! Not to be missed!!

Truly a memeorable way to sight-see and visit wineries in the Napa area. We lucked out I think with the best driver/tour guide/wine expert.. Ms Toni Barnes was excellent host/driver and I could not have enjoyed the tour anymore! I can't even think of one negative thing to say... which if you know me.. is pretty easy to do! LOL..... More

Took the Russian River/Healdsburg area tour and had a good time, but not $99 (plus $15 per-person tip and about $50 per person in wine tasting fees) per person's worth of a good time. Our driver (Dave) was personable, but did nothing to foster interaction and conversation among his riders - it was up to us to break the ice,... More

My wife and I had a truly enjoyable experience with platypus wine tours. Mike was our guide and he was extremely welcoming, funny, and knowledgeable from the moment we first got on the bus. He even made us a great lunch and arranged dinner reservations as well! The wineries on our tour were fantastic. Would love to do it again.

What a way to see Napa and meet good people! Out tour guide, Mike, was awesome. He was a very good tour guide. He never let the tempo of the day die down. He took us to some lovely, exciting small wineries that make some really good wine. The lunch that was served was delicious. I can't really say enough... More

Platypus tours provided my friends and I (early 20s) with a wonderful day of tasting wines, meeting passionate winemakers, and exploring the beautiful valley. Mike was our driver/tour guide for the day and he was spectacular. He knew a lot of information about the area, including little facts as we went along. Waters, lunch, and a cheese plate were included... More
