$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 is the second time I've used Platypus Wine Tours. The guides are very informative and fun. Both time the people that were on the tour were great fun...especially after the first stop :) One of the best parts, is that they take you to small wineries with great atmospheres. Louie was great!

We chose to do platypus wine tours on our first day in Napa and it was one of the best decisions we made. We saw wineries off the beaten path, learned about the Valley itself, and had so much fun doing it! They picked us up right from our hotel and from the minute we set foot on the bus... More

Anyone who wants a truly great, personal inside wine tour, this is the one for you. A small group, lots of wineries, a very knowledgeable guide who clearly loves what she is doing. This is our second time with Platypus and I am already looking forward to doing it again.

Complete with snacks of wonderful cheese and crackers, a lunch overlooking a vineyard, and a bottle to go of a fantastic wine for the ride back, it was... More

We had a wonderful guide, Evonne, excellent service especially at all the wineries. Personal touch given during all of our visits. Our guide prepared a delicious and very healthy lunch which was enjoyed at a beautiful winery with a perfect view. We were a small group and enjoyed the day with great wine and conversation.

Four wineries, 4-5 tasting at each so be prepared. These are smaller, high end establishments (special credit here to Hopper Creek and Razi Winery) and it's personal to the owners. Chris (Platypus) our guide, driver and host was extremely knowledgable and well known whether information or just banter ! Similarly great service from Platypus advance bookings admin team telling us... More

Very small group (12-15 max). The driving wine tour people are personable, friendly and has lots of knowledge of wine and the region. They hand pick the boutique wineries that will be visited. All of the places and people made for a wonderful experience.
