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.
