"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."

"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, ,

"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."

"We had a great day with Platypus Tours and would recommend this to others visiting the area! The bus picked us up right at our Airbnb location on time and it was very clean. The tour guide was extremely personable and welcoming, not to mention knowledgeable about the area and wines. The lunch was a great benefit, fresh sandwiches, fruit, salads, etc. plus a surprise dessert at the end!"

"I came to Napa Valley to celebrate my twenty-first birthday, and Platypus made the trip truly unforgettable. Our tour guide Kira was incredibly welcoming and knowledgeable, and went out of her way to accommodate us for the lunch, as I am a vegetarian and my mother is vegan. I will definitely be doing another Platypus tour during my next trip to Napa Valley."

"I had such a wonderful time! It was so great to go to Luca’s personal home and have the tasting on his patio looking over his vineyard at Bennett Valley Cellars."

"Couldn't have asked for a better day! Kira was our guide, and she was very fun and accommodating. She took care of everything including shipping our wine to us so we didn't have to bother. We had special dietary needs that were met also which we really appreciated. AND, Kira proved me wrong by offering a couscous salad that actually tasted great. Didn't see that happening. Overall, I'll be recommending Platypus to anyone and everyone."

"Perfect tour! Kira was wonderful and selected a great list of wineries for us to visit. The lunch and snacks were tasty and we enjoyed lunch with a beautiful view. We had plenty of time at each winery and Kira was always happy to take pictures, share information, and just be a fun part of our group. Highly recommend!"

"I was lucky enough to experience my 4th wine tour in Napa/Sonoma with Platypus tours a week ago and I look forward to my next one! As always the driver (Jarred) was on time, professional and provided fun facts during our drive from one winery to the next. I love the small, family owned boutique winery’s that Platypus takes us too! They are not ones you would find on your own with so many to pick from. They are always accommodating since we request to get dropped off by a certain time in order to make our dinner reservations. My first wine tour with Platypus was by myself and I have since brought a number of friends every time since then. I highly recommend this day trip to visit 4 wineries and leave the driving and planning to the experts who have relationships with most of the winery owners!!"

"It was just OK. The first winery Auborn James was way too small —nothing to see there. We were on a deck of a house. Fair winds was great. Josh the taster was friendly and fun. Lunch in the cave was great. Benessere was not good ..the guy was rude “ you are early and we are not ready for you”. Plus I don’t care about the owners house —which we had to see. The guys was full of himself. Rutherford was a great last stop. Choc with wine was a bonus. Michael was just a fair guide. He talked about how to drink wine —with a water bottle —-odd. Overall just fair tour —find some picturesque wineries —not houses !"
