Wine tasting in november
Atle_H, Nov 2022
Thanks for a very pleasant and eventful wine tasting experience. Great wineries chosen for us and super guiding throughout the trip.
Nickles and Dimes
Vicky_D, Nov 2022
Madrigal was informative and beautiful. Every wine was fantastic! Tasting fees should be included. There should be something ready - even if just a partnership - for shipping wines purchased. Was reminded to tip MULTIPLE times. Felt way too salesy and really took away from the experience
Good times
Garren_S, Nov 2022
Our tour guide Linda was awesome and each winery was unique, interesting and offered excellent wine. We enjoyed visiting the family owned wineries and learning their history. The group was filled with really fun people.
Extravagant experience
James_E, Nov 2022
The host By the name of Army was fantastic! He did everything and more. The winery’s were amazing and I will definitely be visiting again!
Best sister trip ever! Thanks Kelly
Judy_M, Nov 2022
We absolutely loved Kelly. She was enthusiastic, funny, and so much fun!!! She really knows her stuff when it comes to anything about wine and vineyards AND PEOPLE! From the very moment we got in the van, Kelly was working to build rapport among all of us! And what a great job she did with this! It wasn't long before the whole group, including Kelly, were like best fiends! Kelly's stories were quite engaging and interactive and entertaining! She kept us laughing! She is like a teacher that is your best friend too. She made sure that we had the best time, yet we learned from and appreciated the whole experience and the people as well! Kelly kept us on course, yet she was so flexible and she improvised when she knew we needed it. She was so patient and laid back, even as the day went on and the group got a little rowdy and more spirited. Kelly, you’re the best! We recommend Kelly for the MOST AWESOME tour you will ever have!

Overall A+ for a great experience
Angela_W, Oct 2022
Our tour guide Chris was amazing and very knowledgeable about the vineyards we visited and the wine making process. The vineyards were all excellent choices with great wine options. The boxed lunch was also surprisingly delicious as well. We are planning to do another girls trip in the Spring and this wine tour will definitely be on our to-do list.
Beautiful Napa Valley!

Picked up right on time, tour guide was very knowledgeable. She was also super fun and not pushy, well organized, and knew all of the wineries we were attending intimately.
Fun and educational tour of Napa boutique vineyards !
Esther_D, Oct 2022
Our tour guide was excellent and took the time to explain interesting fact and details about Napa and the vineyards ! I recommend bringing an extra snack for later tastings because it is a good amount of wine.
Personalized Fun Tour!
Debra_A, Oct 2022
Our tour guide, Rob, was amazing. He set the atmosphere to be celebratory. My friend was celebrating her 60th birthday. She had the best birthday ever! The rest of our group was very friendly and outgoing, which made it seem like a real party. The three wineries were awesome. We loved the variety of wines and the knowledge of the presenters. I loved that Platypus Wine Tours accommodates your needs. I got a gluten free meal and my friend who loves pinot grigio wines got to go to winery that had a pinot grigio!
A fantastic tour to some lovely wineries!
BonnieHall_B, Oct 2022
Our Platypus Tours bus driver named James. He was very informative and lovely to be with. The fact that we were picked up at the Blackbird Inn was a big plus for us!
Great day with Platypus tours!!
