We had a great time and so thankful we booked this tour. Pick-up and drop-off are just a start. We got so many “extras” at the hand-picked amazing wineries we visited thanks to Platypus. We toured some beautiful properties, learned a lot about wine making and tasting, and it was a perfect day! Felt like a VIP at every stop. Will book again and again with Platypus. They keep a list of wineries you have visited and won’t take you to the same ones on your next visit. Made great friends with the other folks on the tour. I’ve booked a lot of things on Viator. This was my favorite of all!

Local Sonoma At Its Most Personable

Sam is truly the perfect guide if you want to understand and connect with real Sonoma winemaking. Engaging, funny, and informative, he brings the history, science, and art of winemaking to life by sharing his connections with three low-volume high-quality vintners in a way that made the day one of our most memorable and enjoyable in a very long time!
Great experience
Brandi_S, Nov 2023
Such a fun experience. You board the bus with strangers and make friends by the end day. We visited 3 wineries all of which were well prepared to host guests. Lovely atmospheres at each location. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the process of wine making which made the trip more interesting. Definitely recommend.
This Tour Is A MUST‼️

This tour group is a MUST use! They were in contact with me from the moment I signed up, making sure of our pick up location, emailing and calling even up to the morning before pick up. They made us feel comfortable from the start! Army, our driver, was an absolute joy to be with! He gave history lessons, showed us all the fun stuff along our drive, and was even prepared with charging cables for our phones! We loved each winery that was chosen for our day. The group was intimate enough so we could enjoy conversation. This was just an absolute blast and we would do it again!
Book this one!! you wont regret it!

This was a great tour. The tour guide, Andy, was very knowledgeable and even knew the best locations to take pictures. The vineyards that we went too were all smaller and we we wouldn't have found them without this tour. The group was small but very low key, perfect for a girls weekend away. The experience was great, the wine was great, the value was great. I can not speak highly enough of this!
