"My husband and I were in Napa celebrating our birthdays, and some friends of ours recommended Platypus tours. We are so glad that we took the advice and booked a tour with Platypus. Mark, our tour guide, was amazing and the wineries were so good! Mark thought of every detail to make our day fun and memorable. Each winery was a completely different experience. By the end of the day we had learned a lot about the area and about wine making and wine tasting and we were so glad that we got to experience the region from a non-pretentious, locally-owned, small operation winery point of view. I will take this tour again the next time I come and I would recommend this company to anyone!"
"We had a great time on our tour. Roxy was our tour guide and she was fun, knowledgeable, and was able to give us a diverse looks at the wineries of Napa. Would definitely recommend to friends!"
"We had a great time during our second Platypus tour for my wife and I. We went on February 21st with my brother and his wife who celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. This was their first visit to Napa. We met several great young people (Millennials) on our tour from New York and Connecticut area. We had an outstanding time with them. Lots of laughs, good lunch and fantastic wine… we were all singing on the way back after our last tour. Dave our tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable. We went to large and small wineries and the people in these wineries were a blast. Highly recommend the Platypus tour – will do it again! Just a lot of fun! Tony Petrucci"
"Army was an absolute gem! This company doesn’t just take you to large corporate wineries. We visited large and small. Army is friends with every winery visited so it was a family style welcoming. Army participated in our fun, provided lunch and was our professional photographer the whole trip. After drinking a little too much, I left my coat on the bus. Army went out of his way to deliver it at the hotel. Also, a big shout out to Ari who found my coat when the bus was delivered back to the yard. I couldn’t have had it back with out both of them!"
"We had a great time touring Napa with our driver Sherman. He went out of his way to accommodate everyone's needs and make sure everyone was having a good time. He picked out 4 great wineries and also prepared a tasty lunch. We really enjoyed visiting the smaller wineries where we received specialized service and very friendly hosts who dropped knowledge on us at each stop."
"I am so happy I did this tour while in Napa! Our tour guide, Gary, was so knowledgable on all the wines. He was so friendly and made sure we were all having a good time. I am a more of white wine person, and Gary definitely accommodated by finding a winery that specializes in whites. I came for my birthday and had a few surprising treats along the way! Definitely a great experience. Looking forward to my next trip to Napa/Sonoma."
"We LOVED our tour of four Sonoma wineries, and Gary was the perfect guide. He entertained us with some great information and stories, and his selection of the wineries was outstanding. It was obvious that he was well informed and loved Sonoma and its wines! This was one of the best decisions we've made on this trip, and we would book with Platypus (and Gary) again!"
"Platypus Tours was the best way to start our first time to Sonoma! Sarah selected a variety of small to sophisticated wineries, each providing a personalized and intimate experience. This was a great opportunity to explore the town and learn so much about wine!"
"The wine tour was excellent. The wineries were superb, mostly small ones."
"There were about 6 in our group on a very special friends' birthday trip right after the fires devastated many homes and properties in the valley. Our driver, Stacy, was not only knowledgeable but very personable and fun! She ensured we visited great wineries and made the day so enjoyable. She encouraged our discussions about the fires and first-responders, etc. between tours and welcomed any and all questions about the area as it was a first visit to Wine Country for some of us. All the stops were unique and we were pleasantly surprised! Great day and great driver, thanks for a wonderful experience!"
