"I came to Napa Valley to celebrate my twenty-first birthday, and Platypus made the trip truly unforgettable. Our tour guide Kira was incredibly welcoming and knowledgeable, and went out of her way to accommodate us for the lunch, as I am a vegetarian and my mother is vegan. I will definitely be doing another Platypus tour during my next trip to Napa Valley."
"I had such a wonderful time! It was so great to go to Luca’s personal home and have the tasting on his patio looking over his vineyard at Bennett Valley Cellars."
"Couldn't have asked for a better day! Kira was our guide, and she was very fun and accommodating. She took care of everything including shipping our wine to us so we didn't have to bother. We had special dietary needs that were met also which we really appreciated. AND, Kira proved me wrong by offering a couscous salad that actually tasted great. Didn't see that happening. Overall, I'll be recommending Platypus to anyone and everyone."
"Perfect tour! Kira was wonderful and selected a great list of wineries for us to visit. The lunch and snacks were tasty and we enjoyed lunch with a beautiful view. We had plenty of time at each winery and Kira was always happy to take pictures, share information, and just be a fun part of our group. Highly recommend!"
"I was lucky enough to experience my 4th wine tour in Napa/Sonoma with Platypus tours a week ago and I look forward to my next one! As always the driver (Jarred) was on time, professional and provided fun facts during our drive from one winery to the next. I love the small, family owned boutique winery’s that Platypus takes us too! They are not ones you would find on your own with so many to pick from. They are always accommodating since we request to get dropped off by a certain time in order to make our dinner reservations. My first wine tour with Platypus was by myself and I have since brought a number of friends every time since then. I highly recommend this day trip to visit 4 wineries and leave the driving and planning to the experts who have relationships with most of the winery owners!!"
"It was just OK. The first winery Auborn James was way too small —nothing to see there. We were on a deck of a house. Fair winds was great. Josh the taster was friendly and fun. Lunch in the cave was great. Benessere was not good ..the guy was rude “ you are early and we are not ready for you”. Plus I don’t care about the owners house —which we had to see. The guys was full of himself. Rutherford was a great last stop. Choc with wine was a bonus. Michael was just a fair guide. He talked about how to drink wine —with a water bottle —-odd. Overall just fair tour —find some picturesque wineries —not houses !"
"This was such an awesome experience! Highly recommend. Our guide, Rob, was professional, knowledgeable and entertaining all wrapped up in one ... and he has excellent taste in music as well!! He planned out a great day of wine touring that exposed us to many different facets of the business such as touring the fields and wine making facilities, walking through caves lined with wine barrels and experiencing different styles of boutique wineries. He also added extra tidbits of knowledge about everything related to the region and wine making business. He was very positive and attentive to the entire group at all times. The lunch that was provided was ample and delicious. Rob picked out a beautiful spot to enjoy the meal with amazing views of the Napa region. Every detail was carefully thought out to give the customers the best experience possible. A+++"
"This tour was just what we wanted...a small group that we enjoyed getting to know from different parts of the world, 4 family-owned wineries that made us feel at home, and learning about/tasting the many wines that these families produce. Jarred was a great tour guide, who chose the wineries we went to, made lunch for us, and took care of us all day!! I will definitely recommend a tour with Platypus to anyone I know visiting the area."
"We had an awesome time!! Sarah was great - truly the best. Her recommendations were perfect - everyone loved each of the wineries and each offered something different. She went above and beyond to make sure we had a wonderful time - she picked up lunch while we were on a tour which was great. I will recommend Platypus to anyone in my future and specifically Sarah!"
"What an awesome event. My spouse and I had so much fun, and it was so nice knowing we didn't have to drive. Our tour guide Kym was great and very accommodating. By the last winery of the day everyone in the group was socializing and were very "happy." And, for each winery there is a discounted cost so if you consider that, with the lunch, driving and the tour guide it is well worth the price. We will be doing this each time we visit Napa."
