Wonderful Tour Group - Great Day
Oct 2019
We had a great wine tour with Platypus Tours! Our guide Sam picked us up on time. He was entertaining and provided lots of information on the area. We were a perfect size group of twelve people. We went to four vineyards and got to meet the winemakers, see the grape fields, and of course sample the wines. The Platypus Tour group provided lunch, which was perfect and fresh. Our group of four could not have asked for a better day!

Sam is such a treat! He is another guide who has been doing a fantastic job for us for over ten years! He is lively, curious and entertaining every day. Also, even I am amazed by everything he knows about this region, and by his compelling story-telling (Sam was voted tour guide of the year by the Napa and Sonoma hotel concierges, and mostly because they've heard so many of their guests raving about his tours over the years!) Thanks for posting!

Private Wine Tour, Total Focus On Our Interests
Aug 2019
We decided upon a private tour and we had the best Platypus tour guide, quiet but listening, very knowledgeable. We're not unfriendly but we had some specific places we wished to experience and that means you really need to go private. Very clean luxury vehicle, prompt scheduling kept on time throughout. We could not have possibly enjoyed a better private tour. When we booked they listened. When we were picked up, our tour guide listened. They delivered. Perfect.

I appreciate that feedback very much, and I'm delighted that your private tour with us met your needs and your expectations so well! For private tours, our guests often have places or experiences they are really hoping for, and we'll always take the time to understand just what those are and then do our very best to pull that specific tour day together. Other guests have only general ideas of what would constitute an ideal tour day, and we're very happy to accommodate them as well. On your tour day, your guide can be as interactive or as unobtrusive as you prefer. Again, different private tours call for different skills, and we know the difference. Best wishes!

I'd Go Again!
Jul 2019 • Friends
Our host, Steve organized a great day visiting small wineries in North Sonoma County. We were picked up at our hotel and sampled wines from four distinctly different wineries. During the day, Steve prepared a delicious lunch in the most incredible setting. We had a great time with our small group which included people of varying ages from across the US. Visiting wineries with a small group made for a very fun day!

Our guides will always do their best to choose the most idyllic winery-grounds location possible to serve our picnic lunch. Choosing wineries is one of the most important guide skills, and no one is better at this than Steve. He puts a lot of thought into it, and even goes out to investigate new wineries on his days off. Thanks so much for posting, Barb!

Great Wineries off the Beaten Track
Nov 2018 • Couples
A small group tour with Platypus (we had four in our group) allows you to experience the broad variety of wineries in Santa Rosa wine country. Our tour guide picked us up at our hotel, took us to four wineries, and gave us an excellent and comprehensive description of the wine making process - from the history and practice of growing the grapes right through to the wine in the glass ready for tasting. The character of each winery varied, from the well-groomed country style where the person behind the bar was very knowledgeable, but not the actual vintner, to the rustic farm shed winery where the owner and wine maker gave us an intimate view of the business and pleasure of following his passion. Our guide, Chris, provided us with a prepared light picnic lunch and welcome, friendly patter as we made our way through the rich vineyard country north of Santa Rosa.

Best Way to Tour the Russian River Valley Wineries
Jul 2018 • Couples
We had a super host / driver in BOB. We highly recommend him! Lots of knowledge and the 4 places he selected for us to visit were diverse and yet offered some of the best wines we've ever had a chance to taste. We actually were served by 2 of the winery owners. We definitely will be back again.

Outstanding wines and tour guide
Jul 2018 • Couples
Bob our tour guide selected small, fantastic wineries for us to visit. His knowledge and that of the winery owners we had the opportunity to meet was amazing. And the wines....wow! And the folks that accompanied us (there were only 7 of us) were as excited as we were about the tour and charming which made the day that much more fun. We have 9 bottles and joined a wine club or 2! This wine tour and Bob exceeded our expectations and if/when we visit this area again we will do another Platypus wine tour for sure.

Great start to our wine country vacation
May 2018 • Couples
We chose Platypus based on their reviews. We wanted to go with a tour group on our first day to get our "feet wet" before we headed out on our own. We were part of a group of 8 very nice people (plus us 2) and were led by the very knowledgeable Andy Hyman. Andy took us to 4 Sonoma wineries which he selected and they were all great! We had fun, plus learned so much from Andy and each wine maker. We even went to a cave tasting which was on my To Do List for the trip. We will definitely go with Platypus again and ask for Andy when we return to the area.
