We went to 4 small wineries and each one had their own charm and uniqueness. Our driver was fabulous! Ron was very knowledgeable but fun at the... More

Platypus tours were fantastic, Scott our driver/guide was extremely helpful/fun. He catered our day on the fly and has great reach throughout Napa. We learnt a lot, drank a little and had a great time!

My husband and I had a wonderful tour. We got to experience a small winery with lots of charm, a larger winery with lovely grounds, a family owned winery and finally an off-the-beaten-path winery. And as the day progressed, we laughed and learned more and more. I'm grateful for learning how to taste, some of the science behind the grape... More

It was our first trip to napa valley so we were both delighted when our concierge at our hotel recommended a wine tour of napa with platypus tours. Our tour guides name was Andy. Andy was so friendly welcoming and very knowledgeable. We visited four wineries: laird family estate, David fulton, Fred razi and St claire brown. Our four visits... More

I saw a brilliant rating on Trip Advisor for them and must say, they offered exactly the same. We had a full day tour (10:30 am-5:30 pm) on a Saturday. We had Pete as our tour guide, who was very friendly, and very funny. He kept the atmosphere very jovial, encouraged all 5 couples in the bus to interact, and... More

This was our first trip to Napa and we are SO lucky our hotel recommended Platypus! Our tour guide, Karl, was the best. He was extremely knowledgeable without being a "wine snob" and was so friendly. We toured four wineries, which were beautiful and each unique. The lunch was fantastic and the cheese he continously gave us to try with... More

I love Platypus tours. Was there early October 2014 and thoroughly enjoyed this trip. When booking we provided a list of the wineries we visited on our last tour (Jan 2013) and a couple we had already visited on our own. You go to four different wineries and lunch is included. Our tour guide was Mike Small who was great... More

We had a great time visiting 4 Sonoma wineries. Our tour guide (Sam) picked us up right on time and he was the absolute best! The lunch provided was very good (sandwiches, fruit, quinoa, dessert). Sam was also very knowledgeable and gave us some history on Sonoma. We did the social tour (1 other couple on our tour), and I... More
