We had a fabulous tour of Sonoma. Our host, Melissa, was delightful and had an amazing depth of knowledge about the area. We learned a lot and had an awesome day. Would recommend Platypus Tours to anyone visiting the area!

Disclaimer-Part of the reason that we're ranking this so highly is because we booked separately from another couple that are friends and it ended up being just the 4 of us. So a group tour turned into a private tour at group tour prices! That...More

Average tour. Just a selling exercise really. Wine we bought from Bennett Wineries was corked. Winery ignored us and Platypus no help at all. If you go on their tour don’t buy any wine! Poor! Avoid!

About 5-6 hours. It seems like a long time but we spent about an hour at each vineyard which was the perfect amount of time. It will also depend on how many people are in your group.

They will pick you up. Our tour, Platypus picked up people from two different homes. I'd contact them to verify. I was very pleased with this tour.

Hi, Sorry - just saw this. The lunch was good! They can accommodate food allergies or requests and it's very cute and fresh.
