"Our girls trip of 5 had a wonderful time with Walt & the four wineries we visited. Loved Luxton, felt like we had a hands on experience as they had just picked the grapes & we got to see how that process worked. Walt was informative & I loved his layed back hometown vibe as he has been in the area forever & a teacher in town. He did a great job with our lunch and making sure our wine made it to the van for safe keeping. Always available to help us out with a photo opt. We loved having our own tables for our tastings at each winery, felt very special. Would recommend this company & Walt to anyone visiting the area. We even asked Walt for recommendations for a place to eat later in the evening, he had a suggestion but when I called they were full.....Walt said, "let me give them a call", he did but unfortunately came back to us to say it was super busy/full. 20 Min. later I get a call saying they had an opening............hmmmmm Walt???"
"We had an amazing day with Gary as our guide. He picked unique wineries for us to visit, each were different and beautiful. He would jump in and keep the dialog and conversation going, but was never intrusive. He was extremely knowledgeable about wine and the area in general, often supplementing what the winery guides were saying. Lunch and snacks were great!"
"October 15, 2019 First timers on a Wine Tour. Would not miss doing that again. The only way to see Wine Country from local experts. Bob was our tour director. Extremely knowledgeable on most every subject. Made the tour very interesting in pointing out items of interest. Great choices on the four Wineries he selected. We had a great bunch of folks in our group, some as far away as Norway and Sweden. Thanks again Bob"
"Tina was the best hostess and driver. We loved the tour, met great people from the UK, Seattle and southern California!!! Would love to come and do it again in the future. Must be ready for lots of wine though:)"
"Perfect day. Met some great people, and we all got along very well. Tina selected some great wineries, and they did not disappoint. Hoping to come back and take another tour."
"My visiting family of six very much enjoyed the ferry ride option from SF to Vallejo. While we also enjoyed the wineries overall, a couple in the afternoon felt like taste-and-buy sessions only (i.e., marketing stops for the wineries), with no planned tour of the facilities or added explanation about winemaking. Also, none of the four chosen wineries -- while each small and boutique -- offered any great views of Napa Valley like I have experienced in the past when at least one of the chosen wineries in a day's tour provided views and/or very beautiful and unique facilities. There could have been more balance given to small and larger wineries; and each winery should have offered another aspect of winemaking, in my opinion."
"We thoroughly enjoyed our recent tour of Napa. Our driver Steve was informative, personable and selected great locations to visit. Each of our winery hosts created an enjoyable experience for all. Steve shared the history of the region and also pointed out other areas of interest that we can’t wait to explore. We look forward to our next tour with Platypus as they executed a perfect day for us from start to finish."
"AWESOME WE LOVED THE TOUR WITH TINA WE WILL DO IT AGAIN,"
"We had an absolutely perfect day! Shelley picked out great wineries, that all had something different to add to the tasting/tour! Definitely the best part of our trip!"
