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.

“Napa Wine Tour”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our wine tour with Platypus and Allison our guide. She took us to some wineries where we were able to taste and purchase wine that would not be sold anywhere else. We particularly liked Dahl Winery and Hopper Creek Winery. Came out of the tour knowing how to enjoy wine more than I do now!

“Great time!”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

Our Platypus Wine Tour was so much fun! We booked it so we wouldn't have to worry about driving while wine tasting. We were able to kick back, enjoy the scenery and taste some great wine at four beautiful wineries. Our driver and the other tour participants were fantastic and fun! It was a great day overall! We would definitely do it again.

“Third time and it just keeps getting better”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

Just went on our third Platypus Wine Tour. Can't say enough good things about this company. The guides are funny, and interesting, and knowledgeable. You get to go to the greatest little boutique wineries that you might never find on your own. You may start out as a group of strangers on a bus but by the second stop everyone is becoming fast friends.

No detail is left out. From the water and cheese and crackers on the bus, to the lovely lunch at a vineyard, it's an all around fantastic day.

“Excellent tour of some of the smaller wineries”
Reviewed August 18, 2014

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Platypus Wine Tours. The people that we shared the tour with were a lot of fun, and our driver took us to some outstanding wineries we would have never visited on our own. All 4 places we visited had outstanding wine and very knowledgeable people telling us about their wine. The van that took us around was very comfortable and clean, the lunch Platypus provided was very good, and the free water was a nice touch. If we visit the Napa area again, we will definitely do another tour with Platypus.
