My life long friend and I were celebrating our 50th birthdays in Napa and had a fabulous day with Mike and Platypus Wine Tours. The group was fabulous, the vineyards we went to were the best of the week. Much more approachable and informative. I would highly recommend Platypus Wine Tours to anyone coming up to Napa.

What a great tour! Mark, our guide, was informative and funny and each winery we went to was very different from the last. I appreciate the attention to detail and the support for small batch, local wineries and winemakers. The lunch was fantastic with a special gluten-free offering prepared. Would highly recommend this for wine newbies and experts alike! Lots... More

This was not our first trip to Napa, so we knew several wineries that we wanted to visit. We also knew that if we did this on our own, one of us would have to abstain from tasting, which is no fun. This was an award trip for my company, with about 25 other couples, but I knew none of... More

We did the Platypus Wine Tour which was arranged by the Napa River Inn. Our driver, Larry, was great; he made the day even more enjoyable; he didn't take himself too serious. We stopped at four wineries, ranging from large to small. They provided lunch at one of the wineries and also provided cheese and crackers on the tour bus.... More

Our family came to Sonoma for a vacation and to experience the wine country. We spent 2 days with Platypus and our guide Greta. There were 9 of us on the bus. It was clean and comfortable, plenty of water and the cheese and crackers were the perfect snack. Greta was an awesome guide. She was very knowledgeable and lots... More

My Husband and I took this tour whilst on our Honeymoon in Napa. it was recommended to us by our Hotel (The Meritage Hotel) and described as a really fun tour. It was brilliant! It is very social, and we made great friends with everyone on the trip. We got to see lots of smaller wineries which we would of... More

Great day out. Many thanks to Larry for choosing 4 really excellent wineries to visit and to our companions whose good humour and good company made it such an enjoyable experience. I defy anyone to finish this tour without a broad smile on their face.

We had a group of 6 couples who were all first time visitors to Napa so we secured a private tour which was a key move for a group our size. Marlene Paulsen was outstanding from her meticulous planning months ahead of our visit, to hosting us for a day in Napa followed by a day in Sonoma. All the... More

My friends and I chartered Platypus for a private tour. Greta was great! She called me several months before the tour to discuss the type of wineries we would like. She tailored a day perfect for our group! Great experience!

Greta was our driver/hostess/guide/facilitator and did an amazing job making six couples who did not know each other have a memorable wine tour. We visited smaller wineries and had private tastings and tours. All of this for a very reasonable price. Greta took the stuffiness out of wine and we all had a great time. Highly recommend this tour and... More
