About
No one wants to be the designated driver on a winery tour, so instead of worrying about arranging transportation, book a small-group tour that transports you to three different wineries and ensures you make it back to your accommodations at the end of the day. Along the way, indulge in wine tastings (at your own expense) and enjoy a provided picnic lunch served with winery views.

    Napa Valley
    Stop: 6 hours
    Your tour will begin with pickup from your Napa Valley hotel. Where you are staying will define the tour region that you will be visiting.  If your accommodations are outside of the winery region, you can arrange to meet us a general meeting spot. You’ll visit four charming, backroads wineries and be served a picnic lunch in an idyllic winery setting. Your tour guide will tell fascinating stories and share many interesting tidbits about local history, culture and wine making.  This is not a smarmy or touristy activity. Our specialty is intimate, light-hearted and truly memorable. This tour is sure to entertain with a very approachable and easy-going style. Discover and savor new experiences tasting some of the world’s most celebrated wines. Our typical guest is not necessarily a wine expert but keen to learn a bit about wine and wine-making, and is open to sharing the experience with a few other like-minded wine adventurers.

Wonderful small wine tour
Sep 2021
We went to 3 small wineries and a very small group. Only 10 people. Our tour guide Steve was awesome. Very knowledgeable and seemed to love his job. My son and his girlfriend arranged this trip for my husband and I and themselves. The 4 of us had a wonderful day. Everything was perfectly timed and organized. We had lunch at our 2nd winery. We visited the Varozza, Hans Fahden and Madrigal wineries. Steve said they were selected because they were small wineries and we could sample some small batch wines. Everywhere we went the service was excellent and very individual. I would highly recommend Platypus Tours and especially Steve!

Great Day!
This was a girls trip and we had an amazing time. Bob was a fabulous host…informative and funny! We loved Nicholson Winery and enjoyed seeing the animals at Bruhmans Vineyard. We would definitely recommend Platypus Tours to our friends!.

Chris was awesome! Each of the three wineries he chose were different and great in their own way. Throughout the day, Chris shared relevant and interesting information about wine and the region. This was the perfect way to experience Napa for the first time and celebrate our anniversary.

Custom designed tours with great service
Sep 2020
We had a great experience on a personal custom designed tour to Napa valley last Fall. The staff worked with us upfront to understand our tastes and preferences of wines and wineries and came up with a short-list of wineries and tours to pick from. They were patient as we went back and forth to select the wineries and communicated our itinerary clearly a few days before the tour.

On the day of the tour, the driver/ guide was on time and shared a lot of information about Napa valley and the wineries as he ensured we had a fun day. All the wineries on the tour were very good and unique and we thoroughly enjoyed our day. All Covid related protocols were followed and we felt completely safe in the tour vehicle.

Excellent Tour of Smaller, Family-Owned Labels in Napa
Aug 2021
Great experience. Our guide (Andy) was a pro. We really enjoyed visiting the smaller wineries he chose for the tour. We met interesting people, tasted great wine, and discovered family-owned wineries that we would have never found ourselves. Highly recommended.

Ask your guide and fellow travelers for other recommendations too. We visited several recommended wineries after our tour day and were never disappointed.

Small family owned winery tour
We had a great guide Dave who taught us all about the area including history of the wineries in Napa. The three small wineries we visited were friendly and had great wine. The lunch provided was delicious and fresh! Definitely recommend others to book this tour!

Awesome Napa Valley and Sonoma Valley tours!
Jul 2021
We just returned from Napa. We booked 2 tours with Platypus, one for Napa Valley and one for Sonoma Valley. Bob took us through Napa Valley with 3 stops at 3 beautiful wineries. We learned so much from Bob about Napa's history and geology. The next day we toured Sonoma Valley with Sam. It was equally great! We learned so much about farming in the vineyards from Sam and toured 3 beautiful Sonoma Valley wineries. Both Bob and Sam picked beautiful wineries, both with Caves and beautiful vineyard tastings. We met a great group of people on both tours. I highly recommend Platypus Tours and especially Bob and Sam!
