"Very pleased with our tour. We had a wonderful range of wineries to visit. They instructed us in the different aspects of wine tasting and wine so that it made for a great package we wouldn’t have found by going alone. Also the prices were dramatically reduced for tastings which really helped to reduce the cost of taking a tour. Nice snacks and luncheon. I would do it again."

"Our Napa Valley wine tour was by far the highlight of our recent vacation in Northern California and Pacific Northwest. We enjoyed a really fun day with a wonderful group of fellow wine drinkers. Kira our guide did a superb job of chauffeuring us around 4 fabulous wineries. All were very different and well chosen. We never felt hurried and there was definitely no "hard sell". To top it off the weather was perfect. As a side note we would also highly recommend the Elm House Inn. A comfortable homely establishment delivering great service."

"Walt was great. He was friendly, knowledgeable and a great host. He took us to all these great wineries (smaller ones which was nice) and I must say that I didn't have one wine that I didn't like! It was hard to pick which bottles to bring home as souvenirs! Our group was mixed with all different ages but we all seemed to enjoy one another's company. I appreciate the water and cheese on the bus plus lunch halfway through the day; a few times I was getting hungry or thirsty so the food was helpful. I would definitely do this tour again. We plan to be back in the area in one year so maybe we'll do the Napa tour next time. Thanks very much!"

"We had a wonderful tour on April 11 with our guide, Greg. He was very knowledgeable and took time to get to know everyone in our small group on the tour. The selection of wineries was excellent, ranging from a larger, well known vineyard to a couple of smaller, more intimate operations. We discovered some great wines, learned a lot and made some nice friends on the tour. I would recommend Platypus to anyone!"

"Very enjoyable and informative day trip. Tour guide Kira is knowledgeable and a delightful person. We visited four unique wineries and we were only expecting three winery visits. Enjoyed the tastings and lunch in the Fairwinds cave. We are glad we took the tour."

"Went on a quick girls trip and had Roxanna as our guide! She made the tour so much fun despite the rainy weather. I would highly recommend her as your host. She definitely knows her stuff when it comes to the wineries we toured and the area. Couldn't ask for a better day! Oh, and by the way did I mention this was my 2nd tour with Platypus! Will probably make a 3rd!!!"

"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 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!"
