Excellent experience. Punctual arrival, personalized attention (only two people). He had all the security measures at all times. He made suggestions, recommendations and gave us an introduction before entering each place. I found the selection of wineries very good, one well-known, two boutique and one contemporary. In particular the visit to the boutiques seemed to me the best, since they attend to you and explain the people who are in charge of the process and there are few people. Made additional stops for requested purchases. He took us to eat in a very beautiful and quite accessible place within the Valley. The experience is totally recommended. The price-quality ratio is favorable. In general I would recommend it to family and friends.

It is an excellent local tour operator company. And the trip was great, you travel safely, with a Guide who knows perfectly every secret in the area. You visit four winegrowing houses, you learn and enjoy the tastings. All the staff in the houses are very friendly and highly experienced. One suggestion: DO NOT eat breakfast !!!!! And it ends with a meal in an extraordinary Restaurant. Make space in your suitcases, surely you will want to buy labels that you cannot find them easily. The excess baggage was worth paying for. Our trip was extraordinary. It is worth every peso !!!! Do not stop going. Congratulations to Fernando Fernández, My Guide.

The tour was excellent & Juan was phenomenal. He was full of information all the way throughout the tour, made the tour very pleasant for us & I highly recommend booking this tour. He’s an excellent tour guide!

Luigi was just amazing! We love that he explained everything in details! Enjoyed our day with him! Would definitely contact him again once we are in Ensenada again! Gracias Luigi! -Javi and Maribel
