"What an awesome event. My spouse and I had so much fun, and it was so nice knowing we didn't have to drive. Our tour guide Kym was great and very accommodating. By the last winery of the day everyone in the group was socializing and were very "happy." And, for each winery there is a discounted cost so if you consider that, with the lunch, driving and the tour guide it is well worth the price. We will be doing this each time we visit Napa."

"Mark was a fabulous driver and host to our group of 12. He took us around to some beautiful Healdsburg wineries and estates and was super knowledgeable about the area. He was prompt, arrived on time, and took great care of our group. Prior to the trip the team was very responsive with communications, forthcoming with recommendations, and ensured we were all set for a wonderful day in the vineyards. We would book Mark and the Platypus Tours team again in a HEARTBEAT! Don't miss out!"

"We had a blast!! Danny was awesome; by the end of the tour we called him Dad. Because he kept on schedule no matter what. The first two wineries were amazing. Jon was first and you felt like you were in wine school. I will never uncork the same. Eric had so much passion for his profession and kept us excited. Then the last two wineries sort of broke the momentum; they just poured sips of wine. Not what we expected. You should reconsider using them. We will be back and will always recommend Platypus Tours. See you next year. Ps: please post our group pics or simply share with me"

"Very enjoyable trip. Great for all stages on the great wine journey. Kym was very knowledgeable and and everyone with us were treated like VIPs due to her extensive relationships at the wineries we visited. Not only did we get discounted tastings at some great wineries, but 3 of them took us on tours. Plenty of time at the wineries so not too rushed either. Was cheaper than the day before where we just used Uber to get around."

"Very pleased with our tour. We had a wonderful range of wineries to visit. They instructed us in the different aspects of wine tasting and wine so that it made for a great package we wouldn’t have found by going alone. Also the prices were dramatically reduced for tastings which really helped to reduce the cost of taking a tour. Nice snacks and luncheon. I would do it again."

"Our Napa Valley wine tour was by far the highlight of our recent vacation in Northern California and Pacific Northwest. We enjoyed a really fun day with a wonderful group of fellow wine drinkers. Kira our guide did a superb job of chauffeuring us around 4 fabulous wineries. All were very different and well chosen. We never felt hurried and there was definitely no "hard sell". To top it off the weather was perfect. As a side note we would also highly recommend the Elm House Inn. A comfortable homely establishment delivering great service."

"Walt was great. He was friendly, knowledgeable and a great host. He took us to all these great wineries (smaller ones which was nice) and I must say that I didn't have one wine that I didn't like! It was hard to pick which bottles to bring home as souvenirs! Our group was mixed with all different ages but we all seemed to enjoy one another's company. I appreciate the water and cheese on the bus plus lunch halfway through the day; a few times I was getting hungry or thirsty so the food was helpful. I would definitely do this tour again. We plan to be back in the area in one year so maybe we'll do the Napa tour next time. Thanks very much!"

"We had a wonderful tour on April 11 with our guide, Greg. He was very knowledgeable and took time to get to know everyone in our small group on the tour. The selection of wineries was excellent, ranging from a larger, well known vineyard to a couple of smaller, more intimate operations. We discovered some great wines, learned a lot and made some nice friends on the tour. I would recommend Platypus to anyone!"

"Very enjoyable and informative day trip. Tour guide Kira is knowledgeable and a delightful person. We visited four unique wineries and we were only expecting three winery visits. Enjoyed the tastings and lunch in the Fairwinds cave. We are glad we took the tour."

"Went on a quick girls trip and had Roxanna as our guide! She made the tour so much fun despite the rainy weather. I would highly recommend her as your host. She definitely knows her stuff when it comes to the wineries we toured and the area. Couldn't ask for a better day! Oh, and by the way did I mention this was my 2nd tour with Platypus! Will probably make a 3rd!!!"
