You can book a Platypus private wine tour by selecting one of the *packages* we offer, or by completing our *quote* form to have a customized price quote emailed to you. If that quote works for you, let us know and we’ll get your wine tour booked.
Once you’re booked in, we’ll furnish you with a questionnaire you can use to tell just what you’d like your wine tour day to look like. If you’d rather just leave it all to us, just let us know.
Some of our wine tour clients have already set up their own winery appointments. If that’s the case, just let us know which locations and at what times you’ve reserved.
Others are happy to visit only those wineries that do not require appointments in advance (there are a handful of such wineries). In this case, we’ll book you in and you and your tour guide can work out your wineries on the day of your tour.
More commonly, we find a lot of folks need some experienced help. If you need your appointments made for you, or help figuring out which would be the best wineries for you to visit, we’re very happy to provide these services. Your quote will outline the price for this type of planning service provided by a tour curator.
We’ll assign a tour curator, who will work with you to customize your wine tour itinerary, including any specific wineries you may want to be sure to visit. The curator will then create a mock-up of your tour day and email it to you. Once you’ve looked it over and given us your approval, the curator will make any or all of your tour appointments.
Once your appointments have been made, we’ll email your finalized itinerary.
On your tour day, one of our (most-awesome) tour guides will pick you up and use that itinerary to conduct your tour.
We expect that you’ll find this process to be straightforward and easy. It’s the best way to navigate the complexities of the wine country!
