"Awesome experience, fantastic tour !This is the best way to visit some of the best Napa wineries: smaller and family owned. Warm & friendly service at each of the five wineries we visited (we met with most of the owners personally during the tour). I highly recommend this tour to everyone who wants to get VIP service while visiting Napa's best kept secrets. Many thanks to Jack, our tour guide. Very friendly, extremely knowledgeable. VIP service all the way, including a great lunch. We will definitely take this tour again next year."

"Thanks to Rod for a great tour of Napa. What a laid back and fun trip! He got us special access to the barrel rooms, the caves, and we even got to taste straight from the barrel. If you're searching for a wine tour...stop here you won't be disappointed. "

"I don't know if he remembers me, but my brother and husband and I went on a tour with Rod and he set us up with barrel tasting and we had an AWESOME day. We would love to have Rod again as he mentioned he would take us to different wineries this time and because we had such a blast with him. (If he doesn't remember us just remind him of the annoying L.A. lady ha!) Could we be picked up from the Marriott again? Thanks so much!"

"Our tour with Platypus tours was fantastic!! Our guide, Valerie, was friendly, outgoing, and a lot of fun. She selected great wineries where we were always greeted by helpful tasting staff who were mostly very funny. This trip was well worth the money as I would not have found the best Pinot Noir ever if we had not gone with Platypus. What a way to spend a day in Napa!"

"Don - the tour was everything you promised and much more. The interaction with the other diverse couples (different countries and ages) made for a great social experience. The wineries were each unique and special. Our hosts were gracious and so knowledgeable and made us feel very comfortable while imparting a great deal of information and sharing some terrific wines. Your cheese and cracker tray and the outdoor picnic lunch were superb. Thanks so much."

"I just wanted to say THANK YOU very much for the WONDERFUL experience!!This was a memorable vacation for my fiance and I because we got engaged just a few days before this trip and Platypus Tours just made it even more special and unforgettable!! The food was delicious and it just couldn't have been better sitting outside of a winery with a bottle of wine and Trigger the winery dog! We'll definitely take another tour with you on our next visit to Napa!!"
