"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!"

"My friend and I did two tours with Platypus/ Sonoma and Napa. Michael was our driver both days (we think he made a special request as we are so lovely 🤣) and we had a great time. Michael is very knowledgeable about wines and the region and we visited some lovely wineries. We had a great time in the region. Thank you. Amanda"

"The Platypus small group tour of Sonoma wineries was outstanding. Our tour guide Michael was was extremely knowledgeable about wines having worked in the industry most of his life. We visited five smaller wineries, each with its own unique character and style. All the wines we tasted were excellent. The only drawback was that small wineries tend not to produce wines for the retail market so, if you want to get wines from these wineries after the fact, you have to join their wine club. It was a blessing (unique wines you couldn't find anywhere else) and a curse (not easily attainable once you leave the winery). I also learned a lot about the wine making process, growing grapes, and tasting. I don't believe we would have been able to duplicate this tour on our own. Well worth the money."

"September 17, 2019 I was making my first trip to wine country with my wife Denise. I cannot imagine having a better experiance than we did with our tour driver Chris and the other people making up the group. I would strongly recomend if you are traveling to Sonoma to take the tour with Platypus !!!"

"Greg was a fabulous host! His 'tutoril' about the topography and AVAs was fascinating, and a great way to start the tour. He dealt with a late couple professionally and kept us entertained. Greg has good knowledge of the wineries and he picked out some interesting and different ones for us. I would definitely recommend your tour to anyone going to Napa!"

"We thoroughly enjoyed the tour with Joe; who was pleasant, informative and hosted the tour perfectly. The other guests mixed very well, probably because of Joe's skills. All the wineries were well chosen and their hosts were also excellent. We highly recommend this tour."

"My wife and I had a fantastic time on the tour. Shelly Alexander did a great job! If we had planned more time in the area we would have done another tour with Shelly later in the week. She did a wonderful job of balancing large wineries along with small boutique ones. We loved it!"

"Indiana Joe did a great job with a tour that consisted of four boutique vineyards in Napa Valley. We started at Markham and then proceeded to three smaller vineyards in Calistoga. Lunch was very nice and consisted of assorted cheeses, sandwiches and fruit. I would definitely do another tour and hope one day to work for Platypus if I am ever lucky enough to call Napa my home!"

"I had an amazing time - really !!! Greg is a great person and an amazing guide. He was always courteous, attentive and very knowledgeable. We had outstanding wine and a laid-back but organized atmosphere. Interacting with Greg made the whole experience so much richer. Thank you!"
