"A great tour. It was especially good to go to smaller locations and meet the winemakers to find out more about what they were doing and looking for from their wine. We thoroughly recommend as a great way to find out more about the Sonoma region and wine. Hopefully we will be back in the future"

"We had Gary as our guide and loved it! He was knowledgeable but always light-hearted just as you want in a wine guide! Loved our group we went with too... highly recommend!"

"This was the perfect Napa Valley wine tour for us. This was our first trip to the valley and we wanted to tour some of the small wineries. We can hit the large wineries on our own. Bob Eiess was incredibly knowledgeable of the history of the valley and the winemaking process (from growing grapes to bottling wine and everything in between). Bob was a gracious host who took care of all the details so we could just sit back and enjoy. Thanks for the wonderful experience. I would recommend this tour to all my wine loving friends."

"Our Platypus wine tour with Bob was amazing. Bob is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about his job. We enjoyed getting to know our fellow passengers as well - something you might not get in a larger group! If you're questioning whether you'll like going to the small wineries - DON'T. I've been to larger, more well-known wineries and enjoyed the small, family-owned wineries more. It's a more one-to-one experience and hearing from families who are passionate about Napa was awesome!!"

"My husband and I had a fabulous time doing this tour throughout Sonoma! Our tour guide, Dan, did a fantastic job picking out 4 wineries that had delicious wine as well as charismatic hosts that kept us entertained as well as informed on what we were drinking. Dan was dropping lots of information on us which was great, and he was also constantly making sure everyone was comfortable & had everything they needed. We had a great group and everyone got along really well. I would recommend the tour to anyone & I would also likely do it again next time we're in Sonoma!"

"We had a fab day! Dan our guide was great, he shared his knowledge with us and answered any questions we had. Dan looked after us all day and made sure we were all happy and he helped everyone to mix. We had a great group and a first class experience was had by all. Thanks for a great day :-)"

"We had an amazing tour of 4 small wineries on Sept 12 with our tour guide/driver, Bob. He was filled with info and anecdotes that he shared with a sense of humor. The wine tastings were fabulous and our small group (6 couples from around the world) were friendly with lots of interaction. Would recommend Platypus for sure."

"The tour with Roxanna was amazing! It was a great start to my travels in the US and she played a huge part in it, if I return she will definitely be the guide that I hope to get again!"
