With what sorts of people might I expect to share our Platypus tour?
You will encounter easy-going, social people who are interested in wine, even if they don't know much about it. They will become extra-friendly once they've started tasting.
Am I going to look like a rube if I don't know how to hold my wine glass?
If you are wearing your Air Supply World Tour t-shirt (the one with the sleeves cut off), it won't really matter how you hold your glass. Otherwise, you should be okay.
May I bring my child?
No. Your child would be confused by a group of tipsy adults singing, "Come on Eileen" when they really don't know the words. Fun, yes, but not pretty...
Seriously, sometimes we can accommodate children, but most often not. Please give us a call if this is an issue for you.
May I bring my dog?
Service animals are welcome on the tour. We restrict non-service animals because some of our guests are allergic to animals and because many of the wineries have dogs that are sometimes unfriendly to other animals.
Is there room on the bus to store any wine that I buy?
Yes! We have yet to limit any wine purchase due to storage concerns. Buy as much wine as you like. (Then buy some more wine!)
How will I get my wine home?
You may ship wine from the wineries - most of the wineries we visit are able to ship to almost any state but Utah.
You can collect wine over the course of the day and we'll take you to an awesome shipping shop at the end of the tour.
You can buy a wine shipper box, fill it up and check it on your return flight like luggage.
What is the minimum number of people you will pick up?
How many guests are normally on your tour?
It varies: Our tours usually have between eight and twelve guests on board.
Will you cancel a tour in the event that too few people book it for that day?
No way, Baby! We never cancel a tour if we have even one person booked on it.
Do you offer half-day tours?
Sorry, no. We can't possibly show you enough in a half-day tour. If you would like to join one of our tours late, or leave it early, that is possible.
What sort of vehicles do you use for these tours?
Our vehicles are small tour shuttles. Most of them have perimeter seating, like a conversation pit, so guests can better get to know each other.
How do your vehicles differ from a traditional limousine?
Our buses are shorter in length, but taller in height than limousines. You will be able to walk on and off them. They have large, tinted windows, so that you may see the views from any side of the vehicle.
Is it appropriate to tip our driver? If so, how much?
If you are pleased with the service and effort put forth by your driver, you are most welcome to offer him or her a gratuity. Your thoughtfulness will be greatly appreciated. (We pay them dirt.)
Can this tour really be as fun as it sounds?
Yes. Even we are amazed by how fun it is.
