Join-in Wine Tour & Napa Valley Balloon Flight

Join-in Wine Tour Paired with a Spectacular Early Morning Napa Valley Balloon Flight

We’ve teamed up with our friends at Balloons Above the Valley to offer a one-of-a-kind Balloon & Join-in Wine Tour package.

Start your special day with a spectacular early morning balloon ride high above the magnificent Napa Valley. Your highly experienced pilot will identify key landmarks and engage you with stories about this beautiful and historic area.

This balloon adventure is provided by Balloons Above the Valley.

Next, enjoy our Platypus Join-In Wine Tour of the Napa Valley – a fun, social tour of smaller, back roads wineries. The tour is packed with lots of information, entertainment and commentary from your friendly driver/tour guide. Also includes:

  • A very tasty picnic lunch, served at a winery.
  • More incredible views, great wine, and lively companionship than you ever thought possible in a single day!

Please keep these points in mind: The balloons fly best in cool, calm, stable air which in Napa is usually just after sunrise. Balloon flights are weather-dependent. Napa Valley weather is usually very good, but there are days every year on which the balloon operator must re-route or sometimes even cancel the flights. Passengers are encouraged to reschedule, so we recommend you plan your flight for the beginning of your trip, leaving your options open.

While the balloon portion of the tour may be canceled, the wine tour part of the package will go on, rain or shine.

*As we are two separate companies, Balloons Above the Valley will charge for the balloon ride portion of the day and Platypus Tours will charge separately for the join-in wine tour. Balloons Above the Valley flights start at $269 per person & Platypus Tours charges $119 per person ($129 per person on Fridays, $139 per person on Saturdays) for the join-in tour.

Winery tasting fees are not included in the package price. Tasting fees tend to be about $20-$25 per person at each winery. We’ll visit three wineries on the wine tour. The winery selection varies each day.

Please note: This tour is not available on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, or New Year’s Day.
