"What a great tour! James picked us up right on time and took us to heretofore unknown wineries where the principals/owners spent their valuable time with teaching the fine points of their trade. This was,our first tour- we were knocked out by the regard our director had for the operators and,vice versa. We had top of the line tasting events and James was a great tour director. I recommend Platypus and would gladly go again,!"
"This was my second tour with your company and just as wonderful as the first. Very personalized for the group, excellent affordable choices of vineyards. Wonderful guide."
"We had Tina, she was great. The tour is a very fun way to see 4 less known(but equally fun) vineyards. We really enjoyed the group that was on the tour. Fun day! Will do another tour next time we are in the area."
"What a fabulous day! Bob was very knowledgeable and his selection of wineries provided a variable and wonderful experience. Each one had its own character and was a treat to visit. We so enjoyed sharing it with the others in our group from St. Louis, Nova Scotia and New Zealand. We are so glad we went with a small group tour - it made the whole day much more enjoyable and easy-going."
"Wonderful Tour! Tina, our tour guide, was kind ,courteous and knowledgeable . The tour hosts were incredible and very engaging . It was so much better than going on tours by ourselves . We had so much fun as a group that I didn’t want it to end."
"Excellent- this tour was fantastic. Chris our tour guide was very informative and friendly. From start to finish this was so well organised. We would definitely recommend. Thank you."
"What a wonderful day with Patty. She guided us through the Sonoma area, varietals, kept us fueled with nice cheese and crackers, picnic lunch in the sun and history of the area. She was engaged with the group of 8 and was certainly an expert in the region. Highly recommend Platypus!!"
"Kelly, our tour guide, was very friendly but didn’t have the knowledge we experienced with our Sonoma tour. The wineries we visited in Napa were a disappointment with the exception of Brahman Wineries. Brahman outshined them all with no comparison. The whole experience at Brahman was exceptional. Kieu Hoang and Ghost Block wineries were okay but Hagafen Winery was a terrible experience and one I would not recommend Platypus continuing to visit. They were very impersonal and rude. Our entire group was sadly disappointed. Without a doubt, our Sonoma Tour outshined Napa without comparison and I am thrilled we experienced it first."
"Chris, our tour guide, was amazing! The knowledge he shared along the way was beyond helpful! The tour was so fun and the (4) wineries, Deerfield, b.wise, Lasseter, and Little Vineyards were great! They all shared so much about the wine and their wineries! We ended up being the only two on our tour but it was absolutely amazing!!"
"Decided to take this tour after looking at many options. Turned out to be the perfect selection for our group of 5 ladies. Tim was our tour guide, he made the entire group comfortable right from the onset of the tour. We enjoyed not only the wineries but also the company of our fellow passengers on the tour bus. The pouring rain didn't dampen our spirits at all. If you want to relax and enjoy Napa, I would recommend this tour. Thank you, Tim for being a wonderful host."
