Our tour was amazing it captured the real feel of Napa and not the commercial mainstream. We got to enjoy and purchase wines from family boutiques, we would have never found.

We had a great time on the tour! We were picked up at our hotel at exactly the time we were told. Our driver was courteous and very knowledgeable. We went to four different wineries and they were very different so that that was interesting. They ranged from small to large. We were lucky to have a small group of... More

We had a terrific time. The tour consisted of a group of 5 couples, but it worked out perfectly. Karl, our witty and informative tour guide, brought us to some really beautiful small-mid size wineries. It was perfect and very intimate, and we even met one of the owners at one of the wineries we visited. The tour was well... More

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
