The key to any tour is the guide. And Sam, our guide for Platypus, was top notch. He was informed and informative as well as entertaining. He selected wineries that ranged from the elegant (Rutherford Ranch) to the small specialty (David Fulton). Great time and...More

Our concierge recommended Platypus over the many other wine tour services available. She said that the customer feedback she receives from their customers was the best. I certainly understand why. Platypus avoids the large production wineries and explores the smaller, more interesting establishments. We had...More

I recommend calling Platypus Tours directly (707 253-2723) to determine if they handle transportation to and from San Francisco.

Our hotel concierge has recommended either doing a private tour or group/join in tour with Platypus Wine Tours since this is our first time to the area. We read the Trip Advisor reviews and they all seem great, and they're ranked very highly. . Does anyone have past experience with them on here? Would you recommend? Is there another group tour you would recommend? Any thoughts on group vs private winery tours? We are first timers visiting Napa and got overwhelmed by the long list of...More

Green Hills Wine Tours, Max Napa Tours & Beau Wine Tours are all good options as well. Check out their reviews.

Platypus group & private tour (6 Replies)
We have a group of 4 heading to Napa next month for wine tasting. We are thinking of doing a group tour with Platypus Wine Tours on Friday and then hiring a driver through them for a private tour on Saturday. I thought it would be a good way to get the best of both. Anyone have any input/recommendations? Thanks!

Why two different ones ? Why not just the private tour ? Platypus is well regarded so is this to save money ? Does it ? You can do two different areas or regions with the driver if you need to do 2 days

My husband and I are visiting Napa for two days (Tuesday and Wednesday) in May and will be staying at the Andaz. We have booked an all day tour with Platypus Wine Tours on Wednesday. We will be driving in from San Francisco on Tuesday and want to visit 2 - 3 wineries on our own. We enjoy all types of wines; however, Chardonnay is our favorite white and Pinot Noir is our favorite red. Based on what I’ve read about Platypus Wine Tours they seem to visit smaller wineries so I was thinking we...More

Carneros is your place- lots of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Cuvaison, Etude, Sainsbury, Nicholson Ranch. Highly recommend going over the Golden Gate Bridge on your way to Napa. That's the free direction :)
