My husband and I spent his birthday weekend in Napa and decided to take a Wine Tour. Platypus came very highly recommended and we can see why. Mike was prompt, funny, knowledgeable and laid back all at the same time. He kept our group laughing in between stops and we loved the places he took us to! All of them... More

Bonnie was our driver- she was very knowledgeable and gave us some great history about Napa and the wineries. Our big ask was that she was flexible, as we wanted to change some things on the flat and she was fantastic. She times everything perfectly. Quite enjoyable. I also highly recommend their van vs a limo. We had way more... More

Great wine tour, and very knowledgeable guide. We visited 4 wineries which may have been too many. Next time we'll only do two or three so that we can see the grounds and get a better feel for each winery.

This was our first time to come to Napa and this wine tour was a great intro to Napa. Our driver was Chris and he was awesome! He was on time to pick us up from the hotel. He did a fun icebreaker and he was very knowledgeable and educated about the vineyards and wines. Lunch was so good and... More

We loved our Platypus tour hosted by Kerrie. They pick you up at your hotel, take you to small, boutique vineyards, prepare a beautiful picnic lunch (ours was in the garden at Tudal Winery, which was the most magical place), carry wine to the coach and keep it organized, had a beautiful cheese tray. Just magic. Totally helped us wrap... More

Took my husband on a father's day getaway to Napa. Tour was very educational & went to a broad variety of wineries from small family owned, posh-posh Tamber Bey, Dutch winery (cave), etc. The tour guide was very knowledgeable & helpful in explaining wine. The lunch provided was so-so, I was expecting a little more from the sandwiches and dessert.

My wife and I really enjoyed our time with Platypus tours and Alicia was wonderful. She thought of everything and made sure all our needs were met. She was also very knowledgeable of the area and the wine making process. We really learned a lot throughout the day. I would highly recommend Platypus and if by chance you get Alicia... More

My husband & I spent a great day travelling around the Napa Wine region in an air conditioned bus with Steve, our very knowledgeable tour guide, and 10 other tourists. We visited 4 boutique wineries and had a private wine tasting and tour at each one. One of the highlights was a very delicious picnic lunch provided by Steve in... More

We have done 4 Platypus tours in recent years and all have been marvelous. Mike Small was a wonderful tour guide and the wineries we visited were fascinating-- all different, all the informed staff and we learned so much about wine. It was a great day.

Had such a fun day spent with great people, tasting limited-sale wines at fantastic small vineyards. Doug really looked after our group throughout the day ensuring we stayed fed, watered and happy. Loved the Aussie Bites Dougie! Jules & Dan
