We had a great wine tour with Platypus Tours! Our guide Sam picked us up on time. He was entertaining and provided lots of information on the area. We were a perfect size group of twelve people. We went to four vineyards and got to meet the winemakers, see the grape fields, and

Sam is such a treat! He is another guide who has been doing a fantastic job for us for over ten years! He is lively, curious and entertaining every day. Also, even I am amazed by everything he knows about this region, and by his compelling story-telling (Sam was voted tour guide of the year by the Napa and Sonoma hotel concierges, and mostly because they've heard so many of their guests raving about his tours over the years!) Thanks for posting!

We decided upon a private tour and we had the best Platypus tour guide, quiet but listening, very knowledgeable. We're not unfriendly but we had some specific places we wished to experience and that means you really need to go private. Very clean luxury vehicle, prompt

I appreciate that feedback very much, and I'm delighted that your private tour with us met your needs and your expectations so well! For private tours, our guests often have places or experiences they are really hoping for, and we'll always take the time to understand just what those are and then do our very best to pull that specific tour day together. Other guests have only general ideas of what would constitute an ideal tour day, and we're very happy to accommodate them as well. On your tour day, your guide can be as interactive or as unobtrusive as you prefer. Again, different private tours call for different skills, and we know the difference. Best wishes!

Our host, Steve organized a great day visiting small wineries in North Sonoma County. We were picked up at our hotel and sampled wines from four distinctly different wineries. During the day, Steve prepared a delicious lunch in the most incredible setting. We had a great time

Our guides will always do their best to choose the most idyllic winery-grounds location possible to serve our picnic lunch. Choosing wineries is one of the most important guide skills, and no one is better at this than Steve. He puts a lot of thought into it, and even goes out to investigate new wineries on his days off. Thanks so much for posting, Barb!

A small group tour with Platypus (we had four in our group) allows you to experience the broad variety of wineries in Santa Rosa wine country. Our tour guide picked us up at our hotel, took us to four wineries, and gave us an excellent and comprehensive description of the wine

We had a super host / driver in BOB. We highly recommend him! Lots of knowledge and the 4 places he selected for us to visit were diverse and yet offered some of the best wines we've ever had a chance to taste. We actually were served by 2 of the winery owners. We definitely
