"What a wonderful experience on our California trip. Dave was very knowledgeable and courteous and FUN! I would definitely use Platypus again and recommend them to anyone going to wine country!"

"We had a wonderful time wine tasting in Sonoma. This was our 2nd time using Platypus Tours and both times were awesome. We met a couple of really nice people that shared the shuttle with us and Jim our driver was funny and super tolerant of our obnoxious banter and Mom's flirting. Thanks Jim!"

"Dan the Man! was a witty and informative tour guide. We were a diverse group of people and had a lot of fun. After visiting the first winery, we were becoming fast friends. Dan took us to a variety of vineyards, presented a lovely lunch, always had snacks and water available, and even gave us cool cloths during a hot, sunny moment. What's not to love about wine tasting, eating and meeting new friends?"

"We had a fantastic time on our tour with James!! We made our reservations fairly last minute based on a recommendation from our hotel. We thought it was really just transport from vineyard to vineyard but James & Platypus Tours went above and beyond all of our expectations! We visited four vineyards and had private tours and tastings at all of them. Lunch was delicious and the cheese plate and chilled water on the bus were a very nice touch. We had made some requests and James fulfilled all of them! The level of service was impeccable! I would absolutely do another tour and in less than a week have recommended Platypus Tours to several friends & co-workers."

"Amazing tour! Great staff, our host Gary was awesome and very entertaining. We visited some great wineries and learned a lot about the Napa area. Would highly recommend!"

"We did the Napa tour with James and could not have been happier. We will be going back to Napa Valley and using Platypus tours again. We were able to visit wineries that were unique and each offered something different. Our favorite was Flora Springs, but we truly liked each winery. We enjoyed everyone on our little bus - that is a BIG plus - the little bus, not a big coach. Highly recommend!!!"

"We did the Sonoma tour with Dan, right after we boarded the bus he asked our wine preference. Since we preferred white wines he made some changes to our schedule and took us to the best places around. Great service and attitude, we had a great time! Totally recommend."

"We had a great day with Abbey. She was fun and took us to great wineries. She gets our 5 stars. Would definitely recommend this tour to all. We went again 2 days later and had another great day. Thanks for making our trip memorable!"

"We went on our first Platypus tour and LOVED it! We will definitely go again - loved the hand-picked small wineries - the guide was fantastic, the others on the tour were fun and it was all around just a great day. I highly recommend Platypus!!! Picked it due to high ratings on TripAdvisor and they definitely deserve the high ratings!!!"

"5 Stars for our tour..most of it earned by Ron (our ex-banker tour guide). Excellent communications and customer service from the back office folks. Varied and fresh winery selection..and the picnic lunch by the olive grove was great."
