Gregg collected us at our hotel in Main St, American Canyon. He is funny, knowledgeable and generally an all round great guy/guide. We ended up being a party of 10 and Gregg really pulled it together. The wineries were superb, there was no hard sell. All of the tastings were well organised and welcoming. We couldn't have asked for more.... More

My husband and I went to Napa to celebrate our 26th anniversary and planned this wine tour with platypus, not sure what to expect, this was our first one. Mark our driver was the best. He made sure we had a great time, was funny and very relaxed. Our lunch was wonderful at one of the wineries we attended. Water... More

Our group had a fabulous day with Platypus tours. We went to three excellent wineries, and couldn't have been happier. Cheese and crackers after the first stop, water always at the ready. Lunch was lovely, sandwiches at our second stop paired with great salads. Bus was comfortable and host was gracious.

My husband and I spent our 1 year anniversary in napa valley and it was our first time there as well. We booked Platypus for a 2 day Private tour and couldn't have been happier. We were so lucky to get Evonne as our guide. Her insight on the Napa Valley wineries and her Culinary background was the perfect duo!... More

This was our 4th tour with Platypus tours. And....for the 4th time they did not disappoint! Their focus on small mostly family owned wineries is what we really enjoy. You can't buy these wines at Costco! Also, small tour groups where the emphasis is on having fun makes for a great day. Our guide, Scott is extraordinary. As a former... More

What a day we had with my friend Steve!! Exclusive access and everybody at each of the vineyards spent time and told some great stories for us. Steve was so knowledgeable, and you can just feel that he enjoys doing it, and he is great at it! We might even be on a bottle label together from David Fulton wineries... More

Platypus is very organized. They took us to 4 different wineries, provided snacks, water, and lunch. We loved that the wineries are smaller ones that we may not have been able to visit on our own.

Our tour guide, Mike Small, picked us up at our B&B. We went to several small wineries for a very personal wine tasting at each. Lunch at the second winery was great. Mike was able to adjust our agenda after he overheard some in the group wanting to visit a larger winery. It was all about what he could do... More
