"Platypus is our go-to tour. We enjoy the variety of the wineries we are able to visit and the attention we receive at each. When booking we had said not to worry about not visiting previous wineries we had seen. We have used Platypus 9 or 10 times so we knew this would not be an easy feat. Our only request was not to visit the one we are members of because we would do that on our own. Once again we saw four new and delightful wineries. Amazing! If we had any complaint it was that we felt a bit rushed at our last two stops. Thank you Platypus. See you again next time!"
"This was a last-minute decision that occurred on the last day of our vacation. We were thoroughly impressed and already trying to plan a return to tour again. Shelly was great!!! Loved the choice of boutique wineries and the lunch provisions- made the tour feel more intimate and special. Can’t wait to go again!!!"
"We had an absolutely wonderful time on our Napa tour with Danny last week! Danny was so friendly, knowledgeable, and engaging, and really is what made the day amazing! We loved all the wineries we went to, and the cheese snack and prepared lunch were absolutely delicious. Danny was also very flexible with our drop off location, which was extremely helpful. The staff prior to booking was also very accommodating and patient answering all the questions we had. We definitely want to do another Platypus tour next time we are in California, and have already recommended it to our friends!"
"We had a great tour today with our tour guide Steve. The tour group included couples from Australia, England, Finland, Sweden and the US. Steve kept everyone involved with his knowledge of the Napa Valley. The boutique wineries he selected were very enjoyable."
"My husband and I did the Napa tour with James. We had an amazing time! The wineries selected were perfect - we started the day with the longest drive then worked our way back towards Napa. The cheese tray and the lunch were also good and provided at just the right times. All the locations were wonderful, small, family-owned wineries and we were given great tours / tastings at each one. The last stop - Rutherford Ranch - was a favorite (the wine pairing with chocolate was delicious). I would absolutely recommend!"
"My husband and I did the Sonoma tour with Bob. We had a very nice time at the wineries but their locations in relation to each other were not ideal. We spent way too much time driving from place to place. The first two stops were excellent - Deerfield Ranch and Loxton. However the third stop - Bennett Valley - was 30+ minutes out of the way from the others and definitely not worth the long drive. We weren't dropped off at our hotel until 6:45pm (vs. a 5pm estimated end time) and almost missed our dinner reservation. (We also never received the cheese & cracker tray that was supposed to be included). All in all we enjoyed the tour and the company, but please consider the drive time when selecting winery locations!"
"This was our 2nd time booking a private tour in Sonoma with the Platypus Tour co. There were 9 in our group including 2 children. Kira had to do some research to find family-friendly wineries to visit. Thanks to Kira, we had the best experience in all her selections. Thanks Kira for an outstanding day."
"Michael was awesome, we had the best time on our tour. Wineries that were chosen were awesome. We also had the best group of people. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants a great time and not have to drive yourself. Awesome!!!"
"My girlfriend and I decided to turn her business trip in SF into a long weekend in Napa Valley. We don't know the area or wineries very well and therefore selected the Platypus tour as a turnkey option. And we are so glad that we did. Jerri, our guide, was cute and charming and made the tour that much more enjoyable. We had a blast at all of the wineries and felt that we received special treatment for being part of the tour. We also enjoyed interacting with the other couples on the tour. I can't say enough positive things about our experience. Thank you very much!"
"Fantastic - Jerri was amazing. Great wineries, great service at each and every one of them. A good small group - lunch was just right. Thanks for making the start of our holiday so special - oh and the wine was nice too...."
