$110 Wine Tour. Join us on a Platypus small-group wine tour of the Napa Valley, the Sonoma Valley or the Russian River / Healdsburg wine country! You’ll visit four charming, backroads wineries, be served a picnic lunch in a winery setting and learn many interesting tidbits: local history, culture and wine making. Our specialty is intimate, fun and memorable wine tours. This is a social tour for folks who are interested in tasting some of the world’s most celebrated wines, but are not necessarily wine experts. Hotel pick-up included. Tasting fees not included. Last-minute inquiries are also welcome! We offer private tours as well. Did we mention, fun?! TCP-21230-P

This would be our 2nd tour with Platypus and again we had a great time. This time our driver was Sam and just like DJ (our first driver) he was very knowledgeable he gave great service and made sure we had a wonderful time. Platypus took the time to see what wineries we visited before so they dont take us... More

This being our first trip to Napa we were a little unsure about where to go and what to see first. We booked our trip with Platypus two days before we left for Napa and it was the best. We met Sam our driver promptly at 10:15 and headed of with three other couples. We had a couple with us... More

This is a great tour. They pick you up at your hotel, answer questions, patient, and generally make it a fun experience without making you feel like a tourist. Our guide was Ken. He was very straightforward and alot of fun. He told me I would learn to like Pinot Noir after tasting some from small wineries and he was... More

I was a bit hesitant when my wife mentioned she wanted to use one of our four days doing a guided wine country tour. I was concerned about the quality of wineries that would be selected, whether it would be a good deal and whether we would have good company. Well needless to say, all my concerns were unfounded and... More

We arrived in Napa with little plan other than a goal of going on some wine tours. On arrival, we asked our concierge if she had any suggestions for tours that would take us to boutique wineries. Without hesitation, she referred us to Platypus and we were on a tour the next day. The first tour was with a Napa... More

Traveled with a group of 8 women to Napa for a long weekend and booked Platypus Tours for two days of wine touring. Sam was a fabulous tour guide and brought us to a few famous places but mostly to small "boutique" wineries where we had the treat of meeting the family members and/or the wine maker. Platypus serves a... More

Our wine tour driver Mark was great. Has been living in Napa for a few decades and really knows the area well. He took us to the smaller wineries - not the Disneyland wineries as he refers to. They were really knowledgeable and friendly. He even went beyond the planned route to show my wife and me a winery that... More

My husband and I enjoyed the tour immensely. We had an excellent guide in Steve. He chose a nice variety of wineries, served a delicious lunch with gorgeous views and provided just the right amount of information. He even delivered my husband's forgotten jacket back to our hotel with a smile. (I guess he is used to "wine connoisseurs" forgetting... More

I'm extremely late in writing this review as I had the pleasure of being on one of these tours in August but better late than never! We were picked up at our hotel in Yountville by the fabulous Army who made the trip so great with his conversation and knowledge of the wines and the whole Napa area. The wineries... More
