Happy and enthusiastic team between driver and Spanish and English guides. Interesting to see wine making processes in the desert. Dis not expect much from oilve factory but was positively surprised they have excellent variety of oil and olives and more so interesting balsamic vinegar production, all very good in tasting. Good way to get introduced into Mendoza wine and oil region.

Wonderful horse ride that follows so you don't have to be good at leading horses. I had never done a tour like this. Professional and responsible guides. Dinner was wonderful, but with so much wine I ended up losing my cell phone and helped me get it back. Unforgettable.

a very good day tour, long journey though , but worthed ,they work professional, when they noticed we were not spanish speaker, they solved the problem by finding alternative guide who speak both languages before starting the tour.
