"What a great tour! James picked us up right on time and took us to heretofore unknown wineries where the principals/owners spent their valuable time with teaching the fine points of their trade. This was,our first tour- we were knocked out by the regard our director had for the operators and,vice versa. We had top of the line tasting events and James was a great tour director. I recommend Platypus and would gladly go again,!"

"We had Tina, she was great. The tour is a very fun way to see 4 less known(but equally fun) vineyards. We really enjoyed the group that was on the tour. Fun day! Will do another tour next time we are in the area."

"What a fabulous day! Bob was very knowledgeable and his selection of wineries provided a variable and wonderful experience. Each one had its own character and was a treat to visit. We so enjoyed sharing it with the others in our group from St. Louis, Nova Scotia and New Zealand. We are so glad we went with a small group tour - it made the whole day much more enjoyable and easy-going."

"Wonderful Tour! Tina, our tour guide, was kind ,courteous and knowledgeable . The tour hosts were incredible and very engaging . It was so much better than going on tours by ourselves . We had so much fun as a group that I didn’t want it to end."

"Kelly, our tour guide, was very friendly but didn’t have the knowledge we experienced with our Sonoma tour. The wineries we visited in Napa were a disappointment with the exception of Brahman Wineries. Brahman outshined them all with no comparison. The whole experience at Brahman was exceptional. Kieu Hoang and Ghost Block wineries were okay but Hagafen Winery was a terrible experience and one I would not recommend Platypus continuing to visit. They were very impersonal and rude. Our entire group was sadly disappointed. Without a doubt, our Sonoma Tour outshined Napa without comparison and I am thrilled we experienced it first."

"Decided to take this tour after looking at many options. Turned out to be the perfect selection for our group of 5 ladies. Tim was our tour guide, he made the entire group comfortable right from the onset of the tour. We enjoyed not only the wineries but also the company of our fellow passengers on the tour bus. The pouring rain didn't dampen our spirits at all. If you want to relax and enjoy Napa, I would recommend this tour. Thank you, Tim for being a wonderful host."

"October 15, 2019 First timers on a Wine Tour. Would not miss doing that again. The only way to see Wine Country from local experts. Bob was our tour director. Extremely knowledgeable on most every subject. Made the tour very interesting in pointing out items of interest. Great choices on the four Wineries he selected. We had a great bunch of folks in our group, some as far away as Norway and Sweden. Thanks again Bob"

"Tina was the best hostess and driver. We loved the tour, met great people from the UK, Seattle and southern California!!! Would love to come and do it again in the future. Must be ready for lots of wine though:)"
