Platypus is awesome, plain and simple. Their drivers are the best, they provide a yummy lunch, and they have great connections with the wineries. We went on our second Platypus tour this past week and I didn't think it was possible that it would be better than the first, but it was. Army was amazing, he took us to Calistoga... More

Laura was our trip guide she was lovely! The trip she planned for us had four wineries and they were all private. Not a single other person was at any of the wineries but our group of eight people. It was great! We went up to the mountains to eat lunch and tour a winery, then we were in the... More

My husband and I really enjoyed the Napa tour we took, and think that Platypus has a winning approach. While anyone can hop into big wineries and get an impersonal tasting experience, Platypus' style of choosing smaller wineries and providing more intimate gatherings means having more fun talking to the people who actually make the wines and getting to know...

We picked Platypus solely from reviews on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed, we were thrilled. Deciding to avoid the headaches of individual wine tastings/bookings/driving yourself around, we elected to do the Platypus tour as our only experience of the Napa Valley. I would recommend this simple approach to anyone. In brief we were picked up at our hotel in... More

It was a pretty good tour. We did 4 lovely winery. The lunch was perfect, the driver Andy knew a lot on the wine and the history of the county. The cheese plate on the bus was very appreciate. It comes pick you up at your hotel and drive you back. We reccomended this tour.

We had an amazing time with Scott (our tour guide), and of course Platypus. He gave us a great time, with a lot of helpfull Information about wine and Napa! The Pic-Nic Lunch at Clos du Val (one of the winerys We visit) was very, very Good and charming. But the highlight of the Four winerys was The Hess Collection!

Please don't use any other touring company....all they offer is a driver, but Platypus offers an entertaining, informative, educated tour guide! We visited off the beaten path wineries, and had a delightful time. Greg, our "driver", was funny, and well-educated on wine, the Napa and Sonoma valleys. I'd happily ask for him the next time I am in California. We... More

Very reliable, convenient and well priced. Had a group of 8 and had spacious ride with tasty sandwiches and cheese plate for a day of winery touring (think we visited 5, possibly 6), knowledgeable and knows the area well. Saw some great places, drank great wine. Would definitely book them again in the future.

We had a great day in Sonoma , the bus picked us up at our hotel and returned us after a full day visiting 4 wineries. Apart from getting the local knowledge from our tour guide the opportunity to meet other travellers was a great experience . A great day , especially for novice wine tasters
