"What a wonderful tour! We were so happy to see the shuttle filled with other young couples that were very friendly. Our host Rod was excellent, and he introduced us to smaller wineries which we found to be our favorites. They had inexpensive tastings, great wine, and cozy atmospheres. The picnic lunch was tasty, and we especially enjoyed the real whipped cream on the desserts. Rod was very knowledgeable about wine and the valley, and we even got recommendations of wineries to visit on our own, the next day. This was a great way to see Napa Valley!"

"Thanks for a great tour, Don. I'm so glad I found you on the web ... you far exceeded our expectations. We really enjoyed the company of our fellow tour mates and had a wonderful time visiting the wineries you chose for our tour - they were great picks. We will definitely look you up again on our next visit to Napa."

"Jack did an excellent job! The tour was wonderful and lunch was an additional treat. We met some great people and it turned out to be the highlight of our trip. We would absolutely recommend Platypus to our friends and family planning a visit to Napa. Thank you for a memorable day. The Latimer's"

"We had a blast on this tour. The ride is set up like a party bus where everyone pretty much faces each other. Within minutes, everyone was exchanging names and where they were from. The tours were great because we were able to go to the smaller wineries the big buses and tour operators can't go to. There was pretty much no waiting everywhere we went and the focus was on us. My brother and I did several tours on our trip, and this was by far our favorite. The ferry from SFO to Vallejo was nice and relaxing. I highly recommend this tour."

"I just wanted to let you know what a great time my brother and I had on your tour. Jack was great, and all of us on the tour had a great time getting to know each other. The one thing we all loved the most was that the tours went to the lesser known wineries, which were superb. Additionally, the people a Peju and Frank Family wineries were superb. This tour was the highlight of our vacation!!"

"I just wanted to write a quick note to let you know how pleased I was with our tour and tour guide, Rod. My husband and I were picked up in front of Wineries of Napa Valley at exactly 10:15 on Saturday, June 17, 2006. Rod was very professional and very knowledgeable. We have decided that when we return to the area, we will contact your company for another tour. Since no one on the tour had any special requests, Rod knew exactly where to take us. Our only request was to go to some of the smaller, less known wineries where we could try wines that are not readily available else where. Again, thank you for your services and please know that we will use your company again. Hopefully in the near future as I am trying to get my family to plan a quick visit to Napa Valley.Sincerely,"
