Great weather, great wine, excellent tour guide...overall a great experience. Learned so much more than the larger vineyards. The little boutique wineries are the way to go.

This review is about Platypus “PRIVATE WINE TOURS IN NAPA AND SONOMA” only – not their group tours. My husband and I hired Platypus for a 6 hour (their minimum booking) private wine tour for $448.50 ($65 per hour plus mandatory 15% gratuity). The website promised a “Private, customized wine tour designed specifically for you”. The driver, Kimberly did contact... More

Spent a full day with bus driver Mike Small. He was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. He gave us some basic knowledge into the Napa Valley and the wine making process. He gave us a great introduction to the four (4) small wineries (boutique wineries) he would be taking us to and the differences between them.... More

Right off the bat he made us feel welcome and introduced us to the passengers already on the bus. We visited 4 smaller wineries. It was a very hot day... More

Scott (Platypus Tour Director) gave us a great introduction before we left downtown Napa. We visited four (4) smaller wineries which afforded us a more personalized tour and undivided attention by the wine operator! We all felt like a big fish in a small pond. The selection of the four wineries was smart. Scott prepared wine and cheese on the... More

My husband and I went to Napa to celebrate his 50th birthday. I decided to choose Platypus Tours for a leisure day of them driving us around to see some wineries. Based on the previous reviews I knew this was the right tour to take for a day of fun. They did not disappoint! We had a great day! Robert... More
