Jarred was an amazing guide. He was friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable of the area. We appreciated his thoughtful selection of wineries which included a small family owned winery. We also enjoyed the olive oil tasting at the Gourmet Market in St Helena and the delicious lunch included in the tour.

So Ch a wonderful day ! James did a great job with our group. Surprised we didn’t stop at the sign for a group picture though. Our group was a fun, eclectic mix and everything went great. Lunch was good and we particularly liked the caves on stop 2 The sommelier at Ghost Block was so knowledgeable, it made up for being more of just a tasting room.

Highly recommend this tour!! Our driver Jason was THE BEST!!! He is from NAPA and was a wealth of information! He escorted us to 3 amazing wineries! All were intimate with top notch wines and beautiful settings! Each location was different and unique. There was a total of 12 fun loving people from different parts of the USA and world. Jason did a great ice breaker to allow us to get to know a bit about one another! I truly was a perfect day with great people, great wine, a delicious lunch and Jason who took care of us all!!

Spend your time and money at vineyards abroad instead.

Chris - the driver was nice and knowledgeable, but the choice of wineries was disappointing: third tier or lower, not really even boutique, and the box lunch was pretty insulting. Tasting fees (while mentioned beforehand) were not worthy of the wines sampled. Having done vineyard tours in Australia, Tasmania, New Zealand, South Africa, Chile, Uruguay, and Argentina, this was not even remotely close in quality of experience or value for the price. It truly lived down to the expectation of the pretentiousness of NAPA winery tours that friends had expressed to us beforehand.

This tour is a great way to learn about the area and visit several boutique wineries. This was my second Platypus Tour and it did not disappoint! My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Lunch was included and was very good. Our guide was Jason who was very informative and fun. We would recommend this tour!
