Have done a couple of Platypus tours. Affordable. Staff is always helpful, fun and adaptable. Always pick a good variety of places. They will customize if you wish. Nice treats a plus. We will always book at least one day in Napa with Platypus.

They will pick you up. Our tour, Platypus picked up people from two different homes. I'd contact them to verify. I was very pleased with this tour.

Hi, Sorry - just saw this. The lunch was good! They can accommodate food allergies or requests and it's very cute and fresh.
