“Greatest Wine Tour Ever!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

I had the absolute pleasure of spending the day with out guide Sam Honey last weekend. I can not speak highly enough about Sam. Sam is a wealth of knowledge and is incredibly friendly. He made sure everyone on our tour was completely satisfied and smiling the entire time.
If I can give one tip, it would be bring music. We had a tour member show up with a complete DJ set up and it added the frosting to an already incredible day.
Special Thanks to Sam Honey and the Platypus Tour Group for an amazing day.

“Perfect Private Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

Just returned from Napa. We booked Platypus for a private tour for four. Our driver, David Slaby, planned the perfect day for our father's 81st birthday present. Small boutique wineries with great stories and of course delicious wine! He was very receptive to our special request (dietary and no long, windy roads) and is a great guy to spend a day with. He even went above and beyond to get us blue cheese from the van to compliment the wine we were tasting. We are repeat customers of Platypus and we can't wait to go back again.

“Lovely day out!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

We were in Napa in January and took a tour with Army! He was brilliant, very friendly, knowledgeable about wine and took us to some great wineries. My fiance works in the wine trade and really liked that we were brought to boutique ones. We especially enjoyed the Tedeschi winery. The lunch was delicious and the other people on our tour were so nice too. Altogether a really enjoyable day!

“A blast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

Platypus was recommended to us by our B and B host. My husband and I know very little about wines and our tour guide made us very comfortable. We went to four small boutique vineyards. We really enjoyed this aspect. The vineyards were all very informative and fun. We were on the tour with some real wine enthusiasts and they accommodated all of our preferences into the choices of vineyards. We had the very best tour guide! She was warm, funny and informative.

“Platypus is the way to go”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

My girlfriend and I had a lovely weekend in Napa. We wanted a professional service to show us around because we didn't know where to start. We've heard from a few friends about Platypus Tours so we gave them a shot. We were not disappointed - Platypus knows their stuff! They took us around to different family and well renowned wineries, it was a blast!

Our tour guide, Mike, was the man. He was very friendly, knowledgable, and made the trip that much better. When we purchased wine, he would label it and take it back to the bus for us. The wineries gave us alot of fun facts about wine country and the history of their winery. Mike was very knowledgeable as well, he answered all questions that the group had while in the shuttle and really made everyone feel involved. He was simply great!

Platypus Tours is a wonderful way to experience the wine country. Give them a call, you will be glad you did!
