The tour guide Mike was very knowledgable and enthusiastic from start to finish. The selection of the vineyards had a great enough variety for each of the different parties on the tour to enjoy. My girlfriend and I love wine but had limited knowledge of the wine tasting process/experience. After this tour we now have a working knowledge and a... More

Our tour guide was Mike Small and he took us to some fabulous boutique wineries. We will definitely request him on our next trip.

Steve was an awesome tour guide!! They all knew him by name at the wineries and gave us special tours. He prepared a great little lunch for us, and interacted with us instead of just being a driver! He was really knowledgeable about everything, and was a lot of fun to be around. Platypus was a little pricey, but who... More

Had just arrived in Napa, and managed to tag onto a wine tour that was just about to leave. The host was excellent and informative (although spoke a little to quickly). The wineries we visited were the smaller more bespoke variety, and in the main the wine tasted was very good. We visited 4 wineries, and tasted approx 5 wines... More

Mike was a great tour guide and took us to a variety of vineyards. We met great people, learned a lot, and of course drank great wine!

From the moment the bus picked us up, I knew this was going to be fun! Our guide, Amanda, was so friendly,upbeat, knowledgable, and hilarious. She personally selected four wineries for us to visit, and they were all fascinating and quite different from each other. The bus was first rate, with plenty of room for our group of 12. The... More

I was a little surprised by the lackluster experience we had with Platypus Tours. It was nice to be taken on a bus to a few vineyards and not have to drive, but I was frustrated with the limited selection we were taken to. They advertise as taking you to some of the tucked-away "hidden gems" of Napa valley, but... More

Had a full day of 4 beautiful winerys! Great cheese and crackers for a snack and a very nice lunch. A lot of great wine and nice couples in our group. Enjoyed this tour and thankful I didn't have to drive. Platypus did all the work!

Thanks to Greta for planning a fabulous wine tasting day! Three of us were traveling from Minneapolis and it was fun to book a "join in" tour. The day was quite hot and the bus not quite cool enough but Greta did a great job making sure we went to smaller wineries with fantastic wines poured by a variety of... More

Recently visited napa for my sister's bachlorette party and Marlene was our guide. It was the best trip I've had to napa! Marlene had personal tasting set up at every winery, we were separated from the loud tasting rooms for such a unique experience. I was so impressed with her knowledge of napa wine country and commitment to customer service.... More
