    This was one of the best tours I have ever taken. Our tour Guide Ana was excellent in explaining the places we would visit and did not rush us throughout the entire day. We visited 2 Bodega along with an olive oil factory. The wine tastings were very generous but most importantly the tours were extremely informative. I live close to the Napa Valley in California and I feel I learnt more on this trip then the tours I have taken before. To end the day we had a nice lunch in a lovely restaurant and the wine kept flowing. I highly recommend this tour.

    Definitely a reason behind our trip to Argentina! Guide well knowledgeable. Excellent winery visits and wine tasting sessions with good conversation in English with owner or their representatives. Scenery of the Andes quite spectacular.

    We just didn't find the tour that exciting. There was some English from the guide and from winery staffs, but not always. The lunch turned out to be a picnic lunch under some trees that were inhabited by a flock of birds. The tables and chairs were covered with bird doo when we arrived, which didn't set a pleasant tone and even though staff cleaned it up, the birds added more, to the tables and the guests,as we tried to eat. The staff tried to charge us 25 for a car back to our hotel that we didn't want and had turned down--and which they had offered for 10 in the first place.

    A tour for wine lovers only! We visited 3 beautiful wineries and an olive oil factory and had ample tastings at each one. Lunch was served picnic style on the lovely grounds of the last winery. Our tour guide was terrific. Great day!

    This was such a lovely wine tour.

    Two highlights: The first winery's tour was given by the owner herself. It was awesome to hear the passion and wine tasting was very well setup. Two other wine tour was just as lovely. The 2nd highlight was their lunch. The third winery had a large green space where they set up different areas for people to sit and enjoy gourmet lunch. Some where tables, but there were areas where you get to sit on the grass with full picnic setup! It was so cute and definitely a highlight.

    Con: You will likely be mixed with spanish speakers. As an american, I feel like I missed out on much of the narratives. They did make best attempt to do the tour in english and spanish, but inevitably they are better and lengthier with spanish.

    The tour was really good.... obviously some good wines and beautiful scenery. Since I don't speak Spanish, the guide tried her best to ensure there was always someone to translate for me. I would recommend this tour!

    This tour touched my soul. It was the highlight of my trip in Argentina. The tour guides were knowledgeable, the wineries beautiful, the food delicious. Last night I opened one of the wine bottles I bought during the tour and all the memories came back to mind, I got emotional....

    The trip was disappointing - we signed up for an english tour and were put with a spanish group. While the guide did her best to accommodate, we still feel we missed out on a lot. Secondly, we feel it was overpriced. We would recommend picking a different tour.
