I really recommend in particular the Tacama vineyard aspect of this trip. The tour is an extra 20 Sol per person on top of the day trip to visit the two wineries, and it is so informative! The wine at this vineyard is comparable with internationally sold wine, and we really enjoyed hearing about the journey to get to this type of wine and the challenges. The other vineyard is a useful comparison, to see what kind of wine and other drinks more usually are produced in a Peruvian vineyard. I really loved seeing the beautiful greenery of the vines, in contrast with the desert surroundings. Chemo - who organised the tour - was easy to communicate with and helped us with a few things during our stay in Huacachina. Johnny - our driver for the day - was excellent, stopping to pick up mosquito repellent for us as a precaution before we visited the vines, where mosquitos can be - no bites for us!

The Tacama Vineyard was gorgeous and our favorite. We did the traditional tour and this included a short tour of the facilities and a video about the history and wine making process. Our guide, Cesar, was fantastic. There was also a tasting included in this tour. It was beautiful and the wine excellent, even some pisco included. Be forewarned, the price of this tour is not included in the price you are paying on GetYourGuide. They do state this in the description but I didn’t understand. You are paying for the ride to Tacama, and to a shorter tour at Nietto, and then back to hostel. The wine at Nietto was sweeter and more go my liking, it also had a more party vibe. Tacama was more fancy and serious. Our driver was awesome and the whole tour very nice, but I think if you are on a budget, it would be better to find your own transportation and only do a tour at Tacama. You learn more about the process, see vineyards and it’s more beautiful. Overall our tour was fantastic and I recommend!

Great experience. Excellent drive who help with details at locations and allows for personalized trip depending on what group wants to focus on. Main event is Tacama. Can do many different types tours at this location and eat at their restaurant. You will spend majority of time at Tacama. Tour ends with smaller, more traditional vineyard, which was great to contrast. This smaller vineyard has much shorter tour and tasting but very sweet people and fun to talk too.
