Join-in Wine Tour & Napa Valley Balloon Flight


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

$394 per person ($404 Saturdays)

Package deal features Napa Valley Balloons

We’ve teamed up with our friends at Napa Valley Balloons to offer a one-of-a-kind Balloon & Wine Tour package for $394 per person ($404 Saturdays).

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 Napa Valley Balloons.

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 cancelled, the wine tour part of the package will go on, rain or shine.

Napa Valley Balloons will charge the balloon ride portion of the day and Platypus Tours will charge separately for the wine tour.

Winery tasting fees are not included in the package price. Tasting fees tend to be about $15 per person at each winery. We’ll visit three wineries on the wine tour. The winery selection varies each day.

To check availability, or to reserve this experience, please call: (707) 253-2723.

Please note: This tour is not available on Thanksgiving Day or Christmas Day.

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!
