“Great Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

My Uncle recommended this tour after going on it a year ago and I was so thankful he did. Sam was our tour guide and he was great. Friendly and knowledgeable about the wineries and wine making process, he also prepared a great lunch for us over looking the beautiful views of Napa. I will be recommending this tour to anyone in the area.

“Wine, Dine ... Terrific good time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

Just returned from Napa Valley September 24, 2012 ~ What better way to tour boutique wineries of Napa Valley than via Platypus Tours! Sue was our guide and was she ever! She arrived promptly when expected, updated our group with her plan for the day and away we went. At pickup she was our guide, by lunch time she was our chef, by tours end she was our daycare provider i.e. "cat hurder" as she calls it, also she was our dance music DJ. Whatever hat she wore, she was always and throughout the tour our very knowledgeable and dependable new friend! Love ya, Sue ~ whatever you're paid, I'm sure isn't nearly enough :) Anyway, the day was fabulous, we wouldn't change a thing! We would highly recommend Platypus Tours for a wine tour adventure. I know on our next visit we are sure to use them again. Thanks for all the laughs and the memories ~ T.Z.

“This Platypus Rocks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

My wife and I have been coming to Napa for years and were told by friends in the area that the Platypus Wine Tour is something we should definitely do. They were right! We shared a wonderful and relaxing day with five other very nice couples from every part of the U.S., visiting four small, high-quality wineries in Napa Valley. Our tour guide, Toni, was a major reason why the day was so enjoyable. She was friendly, knowledgable and extremely entertaining as she drove us from one winery to the other. She also made sure that the wine we purchased was properly boxed, stored and delivered to us at the end of the tour. Whether you're a wine expert or novice, I highly recommend the Platypus experience (and Toni).

“Excellent tour, great guide, lots of fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

Our B&B hosts recommended Platypus to us because they found it intimate & cozy and thought the choice of wineries was great.
So we went for a tour with 10 others and our guide Steve in a very comfortable bus with sofa seats.
The tour itself was really fun, Steve was a great guide and the wineries had great wines and were very welcoming (though we did not like St. Clement as much as the others, it was less entertaining and more "touristy" than the others).
We liked the bus a lot and can only recommend Steve as a guide!

“Platypus is the Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

Don't waste your time even researching other tour companies. Allison @ Platypus is the best! She is extremely knowledgeable and very fun! By far, one of the most fun times of our life!
