Wayne and I had a wonderful day yesterday travelling around the valley with our excellent tour guide/host Mike. Loved the range of wineries we experienced as well as the group of folks we travelled with. People were from all over - eastern and western Canada, USA (Georgia and New Jersey) and Jersey, UK. We enjoyed all of the wineries but... More

We spent an amazing day at the Napa wineries with Mark as our guide. He predicted that by the end of the day the tour, participants would feel like friends and even though we were the oldest couple on the tour, he was right! Mark is funny and knowledgeable and just the perfect tour guide. Our favorite feature of the... More

We had a great day touring Napa with Steve. He chose 4 smaller and unique wineries from across the Napa Valley. This allowed for a beautiful drive seeing Napa, St. Helena, and Calistoga. He was very knowledge! Maybe even more knowledge then some of the wineries. We had the opportunity to see different parts of the wine making process. We... More

Excellent tour for first timers or veterans alike! Visited 4 small napa wineries over the course of the day all of which were unique and fun. Our tour guide Chris was superb. Very personable and knowledgable of the region and wine making in general. I would not hesitate to reccomend this tour or company to anyone visiting the area.

This is the best tour I have ever been on. Greta was amazing. The wineries she picked were fantastic, and her knowledge of the area made the tour so much fun. I would highly recommend Platypus. You can't go wrong with this tour complany.

Although the Platypus Wine Tour bus is not as glamorous as other tours I have taken with other companies, do not let the initial impression fool you. THIS TOUR IS AWESOME! I learned SO much from our driver. He really took the time to not only take us to fantastic, out of the way, small, intimate vineyards, but his relationship... More

We loved this tour, the boutique wineries, and the people were so much fun! The wines at 3 of the 4 wineries were outstanding! The one big negativity was the LUNCH.I have been on Many tours where the lunch is gourmet for foodies. Really, minimal sandwiches, one little dessert per person, really ! People who like wine love a catered... More

We (my two friends and I) had the pleasure of touring the Sonoma Valley with Steve from Platypus. The entire day was perfect: He picked us up from the place where we were staying, chose 4 great wineries (three of which we probably never would have known about or tried without Steve), and made sure that every bit of our...
