"We LOVED our tour of four Sonoma wineries, and Gary was the perfect guide. He entertained us with some great information and stories, and his selection of the wineries was outstanding. It was obvious that he was well informed and loved Sonoma and its wines! This was one of the best decisions we've made on this trip, and we would book with Platypus (and Gary) again!"
"Platypus Tours was the best way to start our first time to Sonoma! Sarah selected a variety of small to sophisticated wineries, each providing a personalized and intimate experience. This was a great opportunity to explore the town and learn so much about wine!"
"The wine tour was excellent. The wineries were superb, mostly small ones."
"There were about 6 in our group on a very special friends' birthday trip right after the fires devastated many homes and properties in the valley. Our driver, Stacy, was not only knowledgeable but very personable and fun! She ensured we visited great wineries and made the day so enjoyable. She encouraged our discussions about the fires and first-responders, etc. between tours and welcomed any and all questions about the area as it was a first visit to Wine Country for some of us. All the stops were unique and we were pleasantly surprised! Great day and great driver, thanks for a wonderful experience!"
"We had an amazing day touring Napa with Platypus! Our tour guide Kym was so friendly, informative and fun! The wineries/vineyards were beautiful and welcoming. Lunch was delicious and exactly what we needed at the mid-point in our day. Our group consisted of a London couple, a Canadian couple, 3 young ladies from NYC and my husband and I, the Alabama couple. We had a blast & felt like old friends at the end of the tour! We have told everyone we know about our fabulous Platypus tour and we will continue to sing your praises! Thank you for a wonderful experience we will never forget!"
"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! ??????"
"Outstanding tour. 4 excellent wineries. Great tour guide. Great experience. Can't imagine not doing the tour. Eight guests from all over the world and states."
"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."
