"We had a great time during our second Platypus tour for my wife and I. We went on February 21st with my brother and his wife who celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. This was their first visit to Napa. We met several great young people (Millennials) on our tour from New York and Connecticut area. We had an outstanding time with them. Lots of laughs, good lunch and fantastic wine… we were all singing on the way back after our last tour. Dave our tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable. We went to large and small wineries and the people in these wineries were a blast. Highly recommend the Platypus tour – will do it again! Just a lot of fun! Tony Petrucci"

"Army was an absolute gem! This company doesn’t just take you to large corporate wineries. We visited large and small. Army is friends with every winery visited so it was a family style welcoming. Army participated in our fun, provided lunch and was our professional photographer the whole trip. After drinking a little too much, I left my coat on the bus. Army went out of his way to deliver it at the hotel. Also, a big shout out to Ari who found my coat when the bus was delivered back to the yard. I couldn’t have had it back with out both of them!"

"We had a great time touring Napa with our driver Sherman. He went out of his way to accommodate everyone's needs and make sure everyone was having a good time. He picked out 4 great wineries and also prepared a tasty lunch. We really enjoyed visiting the smaller wineries where we received specialized service and very friendly hosts who dropped knowledge on us at each stop."

"I am so happy I did this tour while in Napa! Our tour guide, Gary, was so knowledgable on all the wines. He was so friendly and made sure we were all having a good time. I am a more of white wine person, and Gary definitely accommodated by finding a winery that specializes in whites. I came for my birthday and had a few surprising treats along the way! Definitely a great experience. Looking forward to my next trip to Napa/Sonoma."

"We LOVED our tour of four Sonoma wineries, and Gary was the perfect guide. He entertained us with some great information and stories, and his selection of the wineries was outstanding. It was obvious that he was well informed and loved Sonoma and its wines! This was one of the best decisions we've made on this trip, and we would book with Platypus (and Gary) again!"

"Platypus Tours was the best way to start our first time to Sonoma! Sarah selected a variety of small to sophisticated wineries, each providing a personalized and intimate experience. This was a great opportunity to explore the town and learn so much about wine!"

"There were about 6 in our group on a very special friends' birthday trip right after the fires devastated many homes and properties in the valley. Our driver, Stacy, was not only knowledgeable but very personable and fun! She ensured we visited great wineries and made the day so enjoyable. She encouraged our discussions about the fires and first-responders, etc. between tours and welcomed any and all questions about the area as it was a first visit to Wine Country for some of us. All the stops were unique and we were pleasantly surprised! Great day and great driver, thanks for a wonderful experience!"

"We had an amazing day touring Napa with Platypus! Our tour guide Kym was so friendly, informative and fun! The wineries/vineyards were beautiful and welcoming. Lunch was delicious and exactly what we needed at the mid-point in our day. Our group consisted of a London couple, a Canadian couple, 3 young ladies from NYC and my husband and I, the Alabama couple. We had a blast & felt like old friends at the end of the tour! We have told everyone we know about our fabulous Platypus tour and we will continue to sing your praises! Thank you for a wonderful experience we will never forget!"

"What a great way to see Napa and learn about wine varietals and wine making! Bob was awesome and very knowledgeable. The 4 winery visits were amazing, with each offering something different. We were on our own for the remainder of our trip and found it more difficult to know where/when to go for the wine tasting experience."
