We looked around for some tours actually in Mendoza and struggled to find what we were looking for at a reasonable price ! Couldn’t fault this tour at all ! Collected from the hotel on time ! 1st winery excellent with very knowledgeable guide Who spoke excellent English ! Then visited olive oil production centre - agin well Worth the visit and tasting was interesting ! 2nd vineyard / winery was not as good as the 1st one but still ok Driver and guide on the minibus were excellent and all Information provided on English and Spanish Overall well worth the money and would go again !

What a great day! Fabricio the guide was really nice, the wineries and their staff were great. I really enjoyed the English tour with wine tasting and they make my favorite wine so i had to buy some! The other guests were friendly. Yeah just a wonderful day and I’m so glad I went. Thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you

For the price of this tour you are getting a great deal! We stopped at two wineries and one was an organic winery and got to walk through the vineyards and then olive oil tasting. The tour was informative and the staff were very kind. Highly recommend if you want a short option for wine tasting around Mendoza

We enjoyed it a lot. They took us to 3 wineries where we learned about the process of wine making and tasted 7 different wines. On the last one we had a very delicious dinner and learned about the process of producing olive oil. They were easy to communicate with and very professional.

WE had a great time exploring Mendoza on a half day tour. We also liked tasting the olive oil. The tour guide spoke good English even though most of our group were Spanish speaking, the guide made sure we got the translations.
