"The tour was much more fun than we expected. My brother and his wife were visiting from Ohio. I really wanted them to have a fun time and we did. Dave was an excellent tour guide and really was concerned if everyone was enjoying themselves. We especially enjoyed the singing of the old Beatles classics on the bus. It was a fun day for all. It was well worth the price and the 2.5 hour drive to get there. Thanks again Dave and all at Platypus."

"My friend Sarah and I took a tour with Dave on Saturday, September 1st and had an absolute blast! Dave was fantastic- he made the day knowledgeable, safe and fun for everyone on the tour. He was even kind enough to bring me my camera at dinner after I left it in the van - he went above & beyond! Thanks Dave & Platypus- cheers!"

"We had a great time. Fun, fun, fun is the name of the game at Platypus tours. Our driver, Dave, provided a wonderful experience, from local knowledge, winery backgrounds, history and many other tidbits of information. The lunch provided, and the manner in which it was provided was really a special touch. The itinerary was flexible, massaged to the likes of the 12 tourists on board, which was a real plus. All in all, a fabulous experience of which we'd recommend to everyone."

"My husband and I enjoyed our shuttle tour very much - Dorsey is a FANTASTIC tour guide! He took us to a variety of wineries from more moderate to more luxurious - allowing us to taste a full range wines and experience the vast culture of Napa Valley - highly recommended!!"

"After spending the majority of our honeymoon in Hawaii we stopped in Napa for just a few days on the way back home and we're plesantly surprised with our Platypus wine tour. Our guide Dave was super friendly, knowledgable, knew how to get his guests to have a good time and provided us with a very tasty lunch. We got interesting historical facts from the Carneros region to Calistoga and back while sipping on great wines along the way. Thanks Dave! "

"Don - We wanted you to know that we thoroughly enjoyed our wine tour. As you probably know, we visited six unique wineries that day and enjoyed each one. Our host, Jack, was both personable and knowledgeable. Plus, he served a pretty good lunch, too. He helped to make it a special day for us. It was a lot of fun - you had a great mix of good people on the tour. We're glad we picked Platypus!"

"We had a great experience with the Platypus Napa winery tour last week. We were part of a total group of 9 people in a very roomy and comfortable van. Our leader was Dave and he was very friendly, knowledgeable, and tried to meet the needs of everyone in the group. We went to a brand new winery (Black Stallion) and 3 others as well as an olive oil tasting. Lunch was excellent - prepared fresh by Dave. "

"We had a wonderful experience with Platypus! Valerie was our tour guide, and she was FABULOUS. So knowledgeable and a lot of fun! I'd definitely request her next time. The wineries were great, and I so appreciated the winemakers taking the time to walk us through their wines and giving us tips on tasting. I have been spreading the word about your company, and telling all my friends what a great time we had!"

"What a great day! From the first moment we met our guide, Valerie, to the final stop, we had the most memorable time. Valerie provided background knowledge of the region and individual wineries in addition to tailoring the tour to our group. Thanks so much for a relaxing, informative, enjoyable experience!"
