Such a perfect day! Our guide ( Army ) was very professional --prompt, fun --did some special things above and beyond expections , knowledgeable --I'm sure I've forgotten a lot of the great information he shared already. We visited 4 wineries that were an awesome variety of simple friendly country type places, and more sophisticated upscale wineries. It was hugely... More

My husband and I enjoyed a fabulous tour with Platypus. Karl was our driver for the day and was both knowledgeable and entertaining! We visited four smaller family run wineries that we surely would have missed had it not been for the tour. The snacks and lunch were yummy, and even accommodated my dietary issues. Nothing but praise for Platypus... More

I am so thankful that my friend recommended we do our wine tour with Platypus. Everything was so well planned out on their end! They scheduled tastings with the four wineries we visited, and we were greeted upon arrival at each place. We enjoyed a cheese board between our first and second stop, and had the perfect picnic lunch at... More

Our tour was well-organized, interesting, and very fun! Our guide was helpful and well-informed. Each winery was charming and personal. We would use Platypus again!

We had such a fun time on our Platypus Wine Tour of Napa Valley! The people on the bus were all so nice and fun!! The driver, Greg, was super friendly and very funny. The wineries were all good! We went to four different wineries, all of which had a different feel to them. We had more red tastings than... More

If I could give this place 6 stars, I would. We started our tour by meeting everyone else on the bus and learning a bit about them. Our tour guide, Andy, handed out a pamphlet that he had personally made for us which had SOOO much detailed information about wine production, history, and just random fun facts! I really appreciated... More

This company was recommended to me and they did not disappoint! Our tour group was small and visiting boutique wineries we never would have otherwise known about was perfect! Our guide was great and the people that took us around the wineries were very informative and fun.

We booked a private tour to four wineries in the Sonoma region and had a wonderful time! Evonne picked us up promptly and enthusiastically shuttled us over to Robledo, Schug, Benziger and Petroni vineyards. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at each of the wineries, and Evonne kept us entertained in the van with her knowledge of the Sonoma/Napa area. The... More

It was our first trip to Napa, but will not be our last! Platypus tours and our tour guide, Karl, were wonderful and gave us an amazing day in Napa. We were picked up at the front door of our hotel, and within twenty minutes we were enjoying our first tastes of wine. In between each tour we had cheese,... More
