"What a great way to see Napa and learn about wine varietals and wine making! Bob was awesome and very knowledgeable. The 4 winery visits were amazing, with each offering something different. We were on our own for the remainder of our trip and found it more difficult to know where/when to go for the wine tasting experience."

"Our Platypus tour was the highlight of our trip to Napa. Sherman, our tour guide, was so much fun and went above and beyond to make sure everyone on the tour was having a blast. The vineyards selected were all top-notch."

"The best, and ONLY way to tour the vineyards in Sonoma! Sarah, our driver and guide was SUPERB! She went the extra mile for everyone on the tour. Plush, comfortable bus, great cheese and crackers and delicious lunch. Felt like VIPs at every winery! Great experience, beginning to end! ๐Ÿท๐Ÿท๐Ÿท๐Ÿท๐Ÿท๐Ÿท"

"My parents were visiting from the east coast and I wanted to take them on a tour that would show them around the beautiful Napa valley and enjoy some wine. The communication from Platypus tours was excellent from start to finish. We took the ferry from SF, and I appreciated the coordination. Our winery experiences were lovely except for Spelletich, which was in an office park. I appreciate that we were able to see the warehouse and try some unfermented wine, but I was disappointed in the setting because while we were in Napa I really wanted to see the beautiful scenery. With so many wineries in the region, I think the tour should really have spent the 4 visits at locations of greater ambiance. Also, we were dropped off to the ferry an hour earlier than advertised, and we had to kill time we would've rather spent wine tasting. I understand caution about traffic, but an hour early was a bit too much. Robbie was fun at the beginning of the tour but came off a little rude by the end. Other than these things, I was happy with the way the company conducts the tour, and I would recommend it to a friend. Thanks very much."

"My husband and I did the Napa Valley tour with Dan on 9/26 and we loved it! The bus was clean and comfortable. Each winery was unique and we enjoyed each one. Dan was very knowledgeable, helpful, and incredibly friendly. Lunch was delicious and it was nice that the bus was stocked with water. I highly recommend Platypus Tours!"

"We have literally taken Platypus Tours approximately 8 times. We always meet people from all over the world who are just looking to have a good time. The tour guides are great and very knowledgeable and they know smaller wineries so you are not stuck with all of the tourists at the bigger ones. The lunch they serve is great and they are super accommodating. We have brought friends and family on this tour and recommend it all the time. A great way to see wine country without drinking and driving."
