    Tour guide on the bus: very poor knowledge of English; and gave us only some basic informations at all (also in Spanish). I expected some more infos about the region, about Mendoza...
    Timing: ok, without delays.
    Wineries:
    - Andeluna: very nice cellar, good guide.
    - Salentein: excellent - the guide here spoke very good English and gave us a lot of informations, the lunch was one of the best we had in Argentina, the winery one of the most beautiful I've ever seen.
    - Casa Petrini: nice surrounding and main house, but the guide was not soo good as the previous two and he was almost all the time talking with only two persons of our group.

    The bus ride is too long and they stop more then 10 stops to pick up people which no one was there! waist of time. They are unorganized. They told us that we have to choose where to eat at the winery once they pick us up. But when you tell them your choice they say its soldout and you have to eat wherever left opening. Dont waist your time do privately. Its very frustrating, you are on vacation and want to enjoy the wineries they ruined it for us!

    They are unorganized. They suppose to pick us up at 3pm. They cold that they are running late we waited for more then half an hour then they show up. Then the bus broke down and we have to wait another hour for someone to come and fix the bus that didnt happened and finally the tour lady called a taxi and took us to the winery but it was already 5 pm we saw one or two winery and they rushed us because they have to close. Shame....

    The best way to tour Mendoza's wineries which you absolutely should do while in Argentina...!

    You are able to visit a wide variety of wineries sparkling, large companies, small family bodegas... with this tour. I would suggest going for the full day. The man on the bus is always ready and waiting with alfajores and coffee perfect when you are a few too many tastings in...

    The lunch stop was also a highlight. Although you do have to pay for individual tastings roughly 10 each, this is a much better value than packaged tours. The wine is also very, very affordable if you fancy something enough to take home.

    Excellent tour. Be prepared to pay opte inside tour of each winery, it is NOT included in the fare you paid, it is part of the EXCLUSIONS... I wasn't expecting this when I bought the plan. Also, when you arrive to the place, the don't know and care about Viator Boucher, you arrive to a tourist center and they said you have to wait for the next bus
