"My wife and I had a fantastic time on the tour. Shelly Alexander did a great job! If we had planned more time in the area we would have done another tour with Shelly later in the week. She did a wonderful job of balancing large wineries along with small boutique ones. We loved it!"

"We had a fantastic time with Michael on our North Sonoma tour! He was friendly and very knowledgeable about the wine industry as a whole. The wineries we visited were some that we weren’t on our radar and we loved all of them. It’s a small group, which gives everyone a chance to chat and get to know each other. By the end, it was like we were one big group of friends who chose to go on the tour together. 😂 I’ve already recommended Platypus Tours to friends."

"I was one of 6 on a 'girls' trip. We had an outstanding time and Greg was a great host. It was our first time in Napa and we learned so much. This tour was recommend to me and I will certainly do the same. I hope I get to do it again in the future. Thank you for a wonderful time."

"Michael was great. This was a gift that was given to us. We are not much wine drinkers so it wouldn't be fair to judge the wineries, although a couple of them were beautiful. Michael gets 5 stars, wineries get 3 stars."

"Platypus is the best!! My husband and I went on our second tour in April 2019 (first one was in June 2017) and both were amazing!! The tour guides are so fun and knowledgeable. The wineries they chose (we visited 4 different wineries on each tour) were all so great. They provide lunch - which they set up for you at one of the wineries, so you have wine and a beautiful view while you eat. On our June tour there was probably 15 other people, and on our April tour it so happened that nobody else signed up, so we were the only two on the tour, and we truly had such a great time both times! I would highly recommend these tours to anyone!! It’s a great way to see a cool mix of wineries in one day, without having to do any research or planning yourself!"

"My mom & I had a great time on our join-in tour! Our group was fun and Greg was a gracious host. We enjoyed touring a variety of vineyards- large and small. Lunch was great and our views from the lunch vineyard were incredible. I've already recommended Platypus to a friend and will continue to do so!"

"My girlfriend and I did a ladies trip to Sonoma and had the BEST time! Our driver Danny was wonderful! Took us to great wineries and made a delicious lunch! Our group ended up being all ladies (11 total), so I think we kept him entertained too. :) Danny’s hospitality was by far above and beyond what we expected. My friend and I decided we wanted to be dropped off on the way back in Healdsburg for dinner, and planned to tote the wine we purchased on the trip with us. Danny offered to drop off all the wine at the front desk at our hotel in Santa Rosa, and then text me to let me know it was safely dropped off and waiting for us! Amazing! We will definitely be back, and hope to see Danny again! Thank you for a wonderful trip and experience."

"This was my first trip to Napa/Sonoma and your service was fantastic. Tim did a great job, very friendly and knew the area well. For my next trip, I wouldn't hesitate to use your service again and would be happy to recommend you to anyone I know headed out there."

Great time with Tim, ,
