Decided on a Napa Valley tour with Platypus Tours (on a recommendation from hotel) to get familiar with the area. We knew we wanted to visit the smaller wineries and this tour did not disappoint. We were picked up at 10:30 and were on our way. Rod was very knowledgable with the area and provided a lot of history along the way. We visited 5 wineries, each sampling about 5 or 6 wines. The itinerary is arranged the morning of so each day it will differ. Sampling fees are not included and differ from place to place. Some will reimburse if you make a purchase. We really enjoyed our time in Napa Valley, we booked right away for a tour of Sonoma Valley a couple of days later....again with Platypus Tours. The Sonoma tour was with Sam, another knowledgeable fellow. He started us through the square and provided a lot of history of the area. Later, visited an array of wineries and even a cave, not too many in the area to see, so if you get a chance check it out! Sonoma is definitely more rustic but worth every minute. This day was a complete wash-out but that was no reflection attention and service we were provided. Honestly, rain or shine you can't go wrong with either of these. I would definitely take either of these again and would recommend this to anyone traveling the area and looking to taste good wine ;)
