"We all thoroughly enjoyed the service and Army was absolutely the best. His recommendations for lunch and the last stop of the day were awesome. I only regret not having gotten Army to make recommendations for the entire tour. We would use you again for sure. Not sure when that will be but if we do the valley again it will be with you all. "

""Great experience. Jerri our tour guide was awesome. A really friendly group, plush tour bus, with 4 small family-owned wineries, each with their own unique personalities, including a visit to wine caves. We felt we had a personal input from all the hosts at each winery & learned a lot about the area & the most popular wines.The pace of the tour was very relaxed & we had a lovely open-air lunch courtesy of Jerri & a cheese board on the trip back to the hotel.It was a lovely day & I would definitely recommend Platypus tours to others."

"Jerri was amazing. The tour was outstanding. So intimate and the lunch she made was outstanding. It was perfect. You will not find a better bang for your buck! Nuff said."

"We had a great time on this Napa tour. We took the ferry from SF and Jarred was waiting for us when we disembarked. He did a great job with introductions and filling us in on how the day would go. Platypus Tours were highly recommended to us and we will do the same for anyone we know planning a SF/Napa trip!"

"This was my first trip to Napa/Sonoma and your service was fantastic. Tim did a great job, very friendly and knew the area well. For my next trip, I wouldn't hesitate to use your service again and would be happy to recommend you to anyone I know headed out there."

Great time with Tim, ,

"Very nice tour with TK. The bus was lovely and met some very nice people from all over the country. Loved Nicholson Vineyards and the two smaller wineries were ok. TK, our tour guide, made sandwiches and salad for lunch."

"I went on this tour with my mom and sister as part of our weekend getaway. Platypus tours did not disappoint! We had such a great experience and Jerri was gracious and fun. Our tour day was a hot one and jerri made sure we stayed cool, arranging for some of our tours to head in doors and having the ac ready for us before we made it to the next stop. Thank you platypus for a memorable day. Looking forward to trying out the Sonoma tour next trip!"

"We enjoyed our trips. One was the Napa trip which came after our balloon ride (which we also book through Platypus) and the other was the Sonoma valley one. Different driver guides who were both super friendly and informative. Some of the wineries are a bit too crowded and they did not make time for us, whereas others gave us tours and explanations and the tasting was worth the $15. It is a great way to get around and have a drink without worrying about driving. Because of the time constraints they stick closer to the southern end of the valleys. We had a great group on both days. I would not like to go on the trip if the bus is at full capacity as it would be too many people on tour. The only downside was that there is a long wait between the finish of the balloon ride and Platypus picking you up at Yountville but it does give you time to go around the town. The other is that we were told that corkage was reasonable so no problems buying a few bottles. When we got back to SF we found out the corkage was $20 plus !"

"We had Kelly As our guide on 4 wineries. She did a great job taking care of everyone and we had a fantastic time. Excellent choice if you want to see several wineries. Would do it again. "
