We've been to Napa and Sonoma several times over the years, but never had a driver or wine tour. We had an exceptional experience! Our driver was great and it was so much fun getting to know five other couples. It's always more fun drinking and enjoying wine with a group. We visited four different wineries - I believe they...

We did the platypus wine tour because we were only in Napa for a short period of time and didn't know where to start when it came to choosing wineries from the 500 in Napa! Kelly was our guide and she was excellent, giving us lots of background on Napa, information on the wineries and tips on tasting. The 4... More

Platypus Tours is fun. Our guide, Steve, was fantastic. Loved his stories and sense of humor. Steve took us to four great wineries where we tried excellent and unique wines at some of the smaller wineries. (Chase Winery was my favorite of the four visited.) Lunch was tasty and served outside in the gardens of one of the wineries. Steve... More

Platypus was recommended to me by several friends and I am so thankful I listened. The tour by far provided us with an experience I will never forget. We saw 4 small boutique wineries and only our group was there so the one-on-one was phenomenal. I learned so much and experienced some great wine and breathtaking scenery. Can't wait to... More

Platypus Tours was a great experience!!!! I agree with all the positive reviews I read before booking. First of all it was a convenient location for pick up, parking was also great. No worries. Plenty of room in the parking garage. Secondly, our tour guide Roberto is a very nice person. Very approachable, knowledgeable about the wine questions our crew... More

We decided to try Platypus Tours after reading all the great reviews on Trip Advisor. We wanted to have a unique wine tasting experience for my big birthday and were not disappointed. Samantha was the perfect tour guide - very friendly and knowledgeable about wine country and it's rich history. We met three wonderful couples and ventured out for some... More

Platypus Wine Tours was suggested to us by our travel agent. Mike Small, our guide/driver, was very knowledgeable and courteous. Our group consisted of five couples who were very compatible. It was a great afternoon and a great value.

You could easily have the same or better experience if you randomly selected wineries to drive to on your own and save yourself quite a bit of money. The transportation aspect is nice, if you need it, otherwise this tour is quite pricey. You still have to pay $15/winery for tasting.
