We had been looking forward to this tour for some time based on previous reviews and we were very disappointed.

What a wonderful day. We saw a great cross-section of wineries and each one had so much knowledge to share. Fun and lively, you'll have a great time, especially with Karl. Be sure to eat a big breakfast!

Best wine tour we have ever been on. We enjoyed the small group and individual attention at the wineries. We would definitely recommend this tour to others.

What an awesome day we had with platypus wine tours and especially our tour guide, Greta. She made everything right...best choices of small unique wineries in Sonoma, a complete picnic lunch, great interactions with our group of eight...can't say enough! A days vacation so well spent! We would definitely seek her out on our next visit to wine country!

So different then what u regularly experience from a Napa Wine tour. Our driver Greta was awesome, friendly and informative, wonderful company / new friends, and saw 4 vineyards with a really enjoyable mix of Family vineyards, great value, and delicious wine selections (I am now a wine club member of one). If u are tired of the snooty atmosphere,... More
