Laid back approach to wine tour. Wineries were all different in terms of size, types of wine, approach to tastings. Good atmosphere with like minded fun people. Great facilities - bus in excellent condition. Lunch provided able to accommodate vegetarian request. Lunch perhaps not very imaginative but I am really trying to pick holes! Karl was our tour guide and... More

I just don’t know how the tour could have been better. The tour with Greg exceeded my wife Jane and my expectations. Professional, courteous, and fun. A great first time wine tasting experience for us. In the following days of our stay in the area, we recommended Platypus Tours to several people we met. Now we are in San Francisco... More

We weren't sure if we needed a private tour/driver but it was so worth it. We were pleasantly surprised with the places Lauren chose for us. She provided delicious snacks and she prepared an amazing lunch for us. It was so sweet because she laid it all out and even made a little separate bag to keep the bees away... More

I organized our group of 7 for a bachelorette wine tasting tour and I cannot say enough about SUPER DAVE our host. He definitely is named SUPER DAVE for a reason. From asking our preferences on wineries during the planning phase, being extremely prompt and on-time to pick us up (despite that our house was miles up a mountain top... More

We enjoyed the Platypus Wine Tour immensely. We were picked up at our hotel at 10:00 AM and the tour lasted until approximately 6:00 PM. There were eleven people in the van. At first I thought this might be too many, but we were seated comfortably and enjoyed each other's company so much that, at the end of the tour,... More

We took the tour though Napa valley, the day after the earthquake hit! First we cancelled on Sunday, then after letting our minds settle, we rebooked it. Napa was hit, but they seemed to take it in stride. Mike was our tour guide and he was fantastic! he took us to four vineyards/wineries after sitting and discussing the tour with... More

We have taken a Platypus Tour (group and private) each of the past two years. We have found them to be well organized and an enjoyable way to spend the day. The tours tend to concentrate on the smaller wineries featuring wines you will not usually find outside of the bay area. Our guides have been pleasant, engaging, personable and... More

We would highly recommend this intimate tour. We did the Sonoma tour and you get to visit smaller wineries off the tourist path. The tastings were set up just for us and we learned a lot of new things about wine. You get to spend about an hour at each place and Platypus lays out a very nice little lunch... More

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
