"I'm a little embarrassed to say that my husband and I have been with you guys on 3 different tours and I have yet to write you a review. Sorry... So, I'm sure you can tell that we LOVE Platypus Tours just by the fact that we keep coming back. Platypus was recommended to us by my husband's sister and his travel agent friend. We've done two Napa tours (Toni and Army were our guides) and on our most recent trip we went on your Sonoma tour, where Dan was our guide. We've had a very different and yet equally fun tour each time. All of our guides were amazing and they all took into account our previous tours, as to make sure that we didn't do repeat wineries. There isn't a better deal around than Platypus (no, seriously, I got an $800 quote from another driving service :( ). It's really nice not having to worry about driving while tasting, you get a yummy lunch, it's fun and it's AFFORDABLE, to boot. We recommend you guys to everyone and we will definitely be back!! Thanks for a good time. Also, two years ago, Platypus tours donated 2 tickets to our son's school's silent auction and dinner fundraiser. I thought it was so amazing that they were willing to support their local AND surrounding communities!"
"Rachel Kuklinski was our host on the Sonoma Valley wine tour. Rachel's enthusiasm and energy was by far the best part of the wine tour. She is a fantastic host and even better person! Because of her I will be using Platypus again. Oh and I learned a lot of interesting facts about the region and tasted some excellent wines. 10/10 would platypus again."
"Great tour, even for a sweet white wine drinker like me! Found several wines I liked even though they weren't particularly sweet, or white! Favorite wineries were Hess and Auburn James. Very relaxed, low key tour with knowledgeable guide. Will definitely recommend to others!"
"What a way to spend our 20th Wedding Anniversary! Our guide Sandy was fantastic. She went above and beyond making everyone feel special. From selecting great wineries, being knowledgeable about wine, to keeping us well feed and hydrated. We shared many laughs and created great memories. Thank you Sandy! We will definitely recommend this tour to all our family and friends."
"We went on our second Platypus tour and had a great time again! James was a terrific host. He made everyone feel welcome and set up a fun day for us. He exhibited great care and flexibility. One of the couples got an unexpected call from home and had to leave to fly home. He helped get them transportation to their hotel and demonstrated great care for them and the rest of the group. When one of the stops had internet issues and couldn't sell wines, he quickly set up another great option for us. All in all we had a wonderful experience and highly recommend Platypus to anyone wanting to experience the variety of vineyards in the valley."
"Thank you for an awesome experience! Our group had Dan as our tour guide and thoroughly enjoyed his wit and knowledge of the area. Each winery we visited was unique and made our group feel welcomed. Lunch was a summer picnic filled with sandwiches and a light quinoa salad that was delicious. We enjoyed the cheese tray and crackers while on the bus. Dan always had water available and cold rags for the hottest parts of the day. We would take another trip using Platypus Tours if we were in the area. Thanks again for the memories!!"
"Tour was excellent!!! We toured thru Napa Valley and four wineries with Ron Fulop as our guide and driver. My wife and I were placed in a group with people from Canada, Australia, England, Pittsburgh, Minneapolis, Chicago and Kansas City (us). A very fun group....we learned a lot, drank some wine, had a great lunch and a lot of laughs. Ron was very knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor! We could not have had a better experience. I highly recommend Platypus tours and thank you Ron for a great time!!!!!"
"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!"
