$110 Wine Tour. Join us on a Platypus small-group wine tour of the Napa Valley, the Sonoma Valley or the Russian River / Healdsburg wine country! You’ll visit four charming, backroads wineries, be served a picnic lunch in a winery setting and learn many interesting tidbits: local history, culture and wine making. Our specialty is intimate, fun and memorable wine tours. This is a social tour for folks who are interested in tasting some of the world’s most celebrated wines, but are not necessarily wine experts. Hotel pick-up included. Tasting fees not included. Last-minute inquiries are also welcome! We offer private tours as well. Did we mention, fun?! TCP-21230-P

There are 400 wineries in the Napa Valley - 600 if you include Sonoma area. How to choose and then who to choose who you visit them? I chose Platypus because they were not large and also known for visiting lesser known wineries. And of course as an Australian - the name hooked me! Custom crush facilities, smaller highly individual... More

This was our first visit to Napa and I booked a wine tour with Platypus for one of the days we were visiting. I have to say that I was more than impressed and would absolutely recommend using them to anyone who is visiting. Our driver, Melissa, was so nice and very knowledgeable about the area. She made us feel... More

It was a very fun day. They took us to 'out of the way', not commercialized wineries. Rachael made it fun and even though we didn't know the others when we got there, we all felt like we knew each other by the time we got back.

As first timers to Napa we were overwhelmed with the vineyard options. We were also concerned about being able to enjoy the day tasting wines without worrying about driving. We booked a day-long wine tour which was the most fun and educational day of our time in Napa. Louis was our tour guide. He was knowledgable, funny and clearly liked... More

Super-friendly driver and a selection of beautiful wineries. We really enjoyed the random company of our tour, and the picnic lunch at the winery was very nice.

I wasn't sure which company of the many to choose from but wanted something casual, fun, safe, and knowledge. Our tour included my 71 year old parents plus my sister and her friend. Our driver was Karri and she was excellent - incredibly knowledgeable and super fun. In short, a perfect combination! She selected small, family run wineries that we... More

We greatly enjoyed our winery tour in Napa! We went to 4 wineries and had a tour at one of the wineries which included an underground cave tasting. Roxanna (our guide) was very fun and informative. We had cheese and crackers after the first stop and sandwiches and fruit after the second stop. The tour went from 10:30a until almost... More

My husband and I joined Platypus Tours back in March on our first visit to Napa. The idea of choosing which wineries to pick, what the protocol was, how to get back and forth without acquiring a DUI, etc was a little daunting. The positive reviews this group has gathered are well-earned, in my opinion. We saw a nice variety... More

Down to earth. Fun. Unscripted. A totally pleasurable tour, a knowledgeable host who made our day run smoothly. Lovely lunch and good selection of wineries to go to. Just the best day we could have planned.
