Platypus Tours and Napa Valley Balloons, Inc. bring you the best of the wine country by combining two of Napa’s favorites, Napa Valley Balloons, Inc. and the Platypus Tours group wine tour.

Cheese & Cracker nosh platter and chilled bottled water served aboard the Platypus Tour shuttle • A very tasty picnic lunch served at a Winery • More incredible views, great wine and lively companionship than you ever thought you would encounter in a single day!
Napa Valley Balloons and Platypus Wine Tours bill separately. Because balloon flights are weather-dependant, you are not charged until after the flight. Napa Valley weather is usually very good but there are days every year on which we have to re-route or sometimes even cancel the flights. Passengers are encouraged to reschedule so we recommend you plan your flight for the beginning of your trip. The wine tours are never scrubbed! Winery tasting fees are not included in the package price. Tasting fees vary but are generally about $15 per person at each winery. We usually visit four wineries. We visit different wineries every day. Wineries will often waive the tasting fee when you buy wine at that winery.
