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

"My husband and I are not wine connoisseurs, so we didn't really know what to expect on the tour. Our tour guide, Mark, was fabulous about making us, and all the other newbies (and that was most of us), feel comfortable and at ease! We had a blast! The wine was fabulous, the lunch was great and the intimacy of... More

We went to small family-owned wineries. We had private tastings at 3 of the 4 and met the owners It was a perfect day. Went to wineries we never would have found on our own, learned so much about wine and Napa Valley, and had a great time with our group of 12. Book Platypus!! From the time Carl picked... More

On Saturday 8/23 we took a tour with Platypus, we had never been on one and we loved it, there were 4 smaller vineyards and great wines at all. Each vineyard had a different personality and our group was diverse and fun. Our man in charge of the tour was Steve and he added great info and personality to the... More

Greta took a group of us out for the day for visits to a few wineries - we had selected some and she introduced us to one that was new to us. She was so much fun to have as our driver and guide - taking many photos and supplying an excellent lunch and snacks.

This was my wife and I first visit to Napa. We thought it was better to book a tour instead of visiting wineneries by our solves. If you're want to a the tasting you can't drive, right? I found Platypus wine tours here in Tripadvisor and liked the comments about having small groups and more personalized service. We visited four... More
