"We had a GREAT time on our Napa Tour with Ron on June 20th. He was friendly, knowledgeable and really down to earth. We loved all the wineries we went to (Karl at Flora Springs was awesome!), the lunch was fresh and hearty - it was just an all around great addition to our girls trip. We're already planning a trip with the hubbies and will be contacting Platypus again in the fall! Thanks so much!"
"Dan is the man!! He is informative, funny & knowledgeable about Napa/ Sonoma. From booking reservation (group of 7) online, speaking to customer service to confirm reservation, to 4 different wineries and checking out with Dan, what a great experience!!!!"
"I only have one word to describe my first wine tour/tasting experience...WOW!! Our guide, Dan, was awesome and so knowledgeable!!! And we went to some wonderful wineries!! The weather was gorgeous and was perfect for our picnic lunch! Totally worth every penny! We learned a lot and tasted a lot! Dan is the man! Will definitely do this again!"
"Abbey was a wonderful tour operator!! 5 Stars. She went out of her way to accommodate our group. We would definitely take a Platypus tour again because of our excellent experience!"
"The price was good. We booked last minute so I'm not sure if this impacted our experience. The idea of it was great. The bus, the opportunity to chat amongst one another, the driver bening informative and fun and the vinyards visited were all great. The bus, however, did not have sufficient air conditioning so I roasted and the speaker was broken so the tour guide couldn't speak or at least we couldn't hear him. This said, I would use this service again, but would ensure that the bus we would ne on was in good working condition."
"Had a great time with our tour guide/driver and the other 11 guests who quickly became friends. Saw 4 smaller wineries, each more interesting than the previous; and of course, tasted delicious wines and laughed with the crew."
"The four wineries were very different and gave us a great feel for the area. Our driver was friendly. Very enjoyable day"
"Great Day of Tasting Wine. If you want to be treated to Excellent Service and have a Great Experience, this is the place. We spent the day having Private Tours and tasting great wine. I will be back! Kelly was Awesome."
"We enjoyed the tour. It was a pleasant experience that the wineries were expecting us. Our guide was friendly and easy going. However, your website claims: Learn tidbits of local wine making, history and culture Personable and well-informed tour guide Very disappointing experience. I was expecting to hear from our guide tidbits regarding wine making and culture. Our guide just drove us to the wineries as was very friendly and willing to answer questions if we had any. It was up to the winery tour guide to tell us basic history about the winery. Dine on a very tasty picnic lunch – served at a winery I was expecting boxed lunches and not to have a veggie tray with a plate of fruit. We were supposed to have vegan lunches. All we had was veggies and fruit from a plate and we had to share two lunch size containers of hummus with the group. If I had known that the selling point is to drink, I would have instead taken the Napa Valley Wine Train. Your claims are misleading. I would not recommend this tour to friends. I don’t need to pay to go drink with strangers. The guide was very friendly and easy going."
"We had the pleasure of touring with your company on a recent trip to Napa. We had the most wonderful time. Our guide - James - was amazing and took us to some wonderful wineries. Thank you again James for a great time. You are the best! Can't wait for our next trip! See you then!"
