My sister works in the Napa wine industry and recommended I take this tour during my visit. It was a great recommendation! I was a little nervous about joining the tour on my own, but everyone was great and we chatted all day. The tour guide / driver was very welcoming and knowledgable - he gave us a great overview...

This tour was truly amazing from the wonderful education we received about wine from Steve to all the small wineries we visited. The last stop, st. Claire brown was the icing on the cake. For the price you get to visit 4 wineries, lunch, and tons of water. Truly highly recommended to all wine lovers worldwide.

We just returned from an amazing weekend in San Francisco/Napa Valley. As a group of 2 couples, we wanted to do a private tour of Napa, and stumbled on Platypus Tours on Tripadvisor. Let me tell you, we were not disappointed. From the moment I asked for a quote and booked, I received the best customer service! I was contacted... More

We got to Napa Easter Sunday and our wine tour was scheduled for 10:15 Monday. There was a letter waiting for us at the hotel with a reminder of the tour. Mike was right on time, and we picked up 9 others within just a few minutes. We all got along right off the bat. Mike let us get to... More

Hotel Yountville suggested Platapus for a wine tour. We went on an afternoon wine tour with 4 other couples and their recommendation was fantastic! The vehicle (Annabelle) was luxurious and Alison was an insightful and interesting guide (the A team for sure!). The best part was that we didnt go to the big name busy wineries but to small family... More

We were absolutely impressed and extremely pleased with the tour. The wineries we visited were all great and we had a really good experience. Even though we were in a group, the experience felt special and there was a lot of attention to detail on the little things that matter such as the food, the wineries and locations selected, etc....

I've done several wine tours/tastings in the U.S. and Europe but my recent visit to the Napa wineries through Platypus was, by far, the best. We visited 4 small wineries and avoided the crowded tourist spots which I really appreciated. Our driver/guide, Greta, couldn't have been more accommodating. We wanted to spend extra time at the Tudal vineyards so she... More

We planned this tour on our own after seeing that our B&B also suggests their guests use them. Steve Hunter (our driver/guide) arrived at exactly the time we were given and greeted us with warmth and courtesy. The van/bus was clean and fully stocked with water. We had a total of 8 people on our tour. By the end of... More

I don't normally like group tours, but this was fantastic: 4 different vineyards with different styles and setups picked by the wonderful Michelle. I learnt a lot about wine and I thought I had a good knowledge. A wonderful day out, topped off by a great cheese board before we left the last vineyard.
