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.
