What makes us so confident?

Partially because we are so very grateful and excited to be doing this kind of work. I founded this company way back in 2004, and most of the members of our tour guide team have been with me for years. In that time we’ve learned a great deal, mastered the complexities and nuances, and built an incredible array of relationships throughout the Napa Valley and Sonoma County wine country.

We are fixated on the notion that we can provide an awesome, lifetime-memorable tour for each of our tour clients.

I really hope you’ll give us a try!

The process couldn’t be easier!

Each Private Wine Tour is tailored to your specific preferences. The hourly rates are determined by a number of factors, such as how many guests will be on board, the day and season you choose and how far away the pick-up location. We can pick you up from a wide radius, including San Francisco, San Jose and the Bay Area, and the Sacramento area. Quoted tour prices are inclusive of all taxes and fuel fees. When you’re ready to begin, use our simple Quote Calculator (groups 1 to 8 people) or Quote Form (for any size group) below to convey your basic tour needs to us.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Wine Tasting Fees
Tasting fees are charged by wineries to compensate them for the wines they pour. These fees can vary widely from one winery to another. The average tasting fee is currently about $25 to $45 per guest for anywhere from four to nine tastes (an ounce or two). Some charge less and some charge more. Nearly all wineries charge these fees, but most will waive them if you are purchasing wine.
Meeting | Pickup

We’re happy to pick you up from your home or hotel, anywhere in the Napa or Sonoma wine country, in San Francisco, or any other accessible location within 50 or so miles of Napa or Sonoma. Quotes will vary depending on pick-up location.

General Questions

How can I determine if you have a tour vehicle available on my preferred tour date?
Please fill out the Quote Calculator (for groups of 1-8 guests). We’ll check the calendar, and confirm the price quote right away (within 24 hours), that your date is available. For larger groups of 8 or more please Request a Quote.

How far in advance should I reserve my tour?
There is no set length of time to ensure availability. Saturday and holiday weekends fill up the fastest. Fall is our busiest season, followed closely by summer. Your best strategy is to complete the Quote Calculator (for groups of 1-8 guests) as soon as you can. For larger groups of 8 or more please Request a Quote. If your date is close to filling up, we’ll let you know so you can plan accordingly.

How many guests can you accommodate?
Our fleet can handle all different sizes of groups large and small, so theoretically there is no limit.

“We had an awesome time!! Sarah was great – truly the best. Her recommendations were perfect – everyone loved each of the wineries and each offered something different. She went above and beyond to make sure we had a wonderful time – she picked up lunch while we were on a tour which was great. I will recommend Platypus to anyone in my future and specifically Sarah!”
