A note from Small-Group Wine-Tasting Tour through Napa Valley
We are showing awesome (and COVID-safe) wine tours! Tours are kept to 6-8 guests, physically distanced. Masks are worn onboard and while entering wineries, but not during tastings. Individual boxed lunch provided. Vehicles are frequently sanitized. Hand sanitizer on bus. Safe, but still really fun.

Overview
No one wants to be the designated driver on a winery tour, so instead of worrying about arranging transportation, book a small-group tour that transports you to three different wineries and ensures you make it back to your accommodations at the end of the day. Along the way, indulge in wine tastings (at your own expense) and enjoy a provided picnic lunch served with winery views.
Highlights
  • Visit four Napa Valley wineries on a small-group tour
  • Learn about the area’s history and the wine-making process from your guide
  • A picnic lunch ensures you aren’t drinking on an empty stomach
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off make the excursion hassle-free

Abbey and Dustin are the best! I've been planning for a Friendsgiving trip to Napa Valley this year with high expectation, requested wineries and style. Abby and Dustin had multiple discussion with me to make this perfect agenda for our trip. This is especially hard during

For everyone who doesn't know, Abbey and Dustin are the dynamic duo of wine tour planning, particularly for our private tours, which are highly customized to the tastes and preferences of our tour clients. This includes helping to identify the perfect wineries, then working out the timing & logistics, making lunch arrangements and the most challenging part, getting those wineries to grant us the appointment slots we need. As you might imagine, these tasks have been especially challenging over the past umpteen months as safety protocols and winery policies fluctuated many times. I'm so proud of our team for navigating this environment so cheerfully and making so many successful wine tours happen despite the obstacles! Aptsai: we are looking forward to seeing you and your friends just as soon as you're all ready to reschedule your Napa Valley trip! See you then.

Due to COVID-19, my group & I were unable to make it for our wine tastings (or NAPA in general). Not only were we fully refunded for our deposits, we were kindly followed-up with a call asking if we received those funds back in our account. Although we didn’t get the opportunity

You're so kind, Tonya! Bob is indeed a fantastic tour guide. He's been touring with us for about four years, but despite being the 'new guy', he's picked it up like a natural! We'll be thrilled to see you return with your friends.

We went on platypus tours with Bob, who was amazing!! He was so full of knowledge and was great at explaining the areas and exposing the group to smaller local wineries that have tasty wines! Would definitely come back to this tour and request Bob the next time we visit!

Every time I let Bob know that someone has written me or posted a review raving about his tour (pretty danged often, seriously!), he responds that he truly loves the work and so enjoys the guests he meets onboard. That guy is a class act. Thanks for posting, Ashley; I'll be sure to share it with him.

I called Platypus last minute, and not only did they accept my crazy end of day request, but they also did it with a huge smile on their faces! Abbey & Don were incredible. I will use Platypus Tours every time I come to the valley. THANK YOU!!
