We were looking for an immediate introduction to (for us, little-known) Uruguayan wines and received so much more. Ryan's door-to-door service allowed us to get out into the countryside and his easy manner and engaging stories made for a perfect afternoon. He certainly knows his wines (and ah, the cheese...), and his choices for winery visits were fabulous, as he... More

My friend and I had a fantastic time on our wine tour! Ryan was very accommodating and worked with us to do a tour that fit our budget and time needs. The winery in La Barra that he took us to was gorgeous and the wine superb. I had the best rose I've ever drunk in my life there! Ryan... More

Do you, like us, mourn the loss of stellar customer service these days? Then you too will be delighted by Ryan's wonderful wine tour! Ryan's enthusiasm & attention to detail are refreshingly old fashioned! We enjoyed the gourmet experience, Ryan's expertise as a sommelier & his fun personality. But really Ryan is more like your personal concierge for Uruguay, as... More

The access to Playa Vik is enough to justify the price but Ryan's knowledge and energy (along with the delicious wines) make this a steal.

Where do I start? This tour was amazing. Ryan was the best tour guide we have ever had. From initial contact to the tour he was professional, timely, and a wealth of knowledge. He went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. We did the sunset wine experience in Punte del Este and it was just stunning. From... More

We were in Punta de Este for a conference during the winter months there. We knew that we wanted to tour some wineries while in Uruguay. I just did the normal search engine and found The Wine Experience. This tour was truly a gem that I stumbled upon. Ryan is very knowledgeable of wine, vineyards and the area that we... More

As others comments I just have good references ro make to this tour! Ryan makes you confortable and welcome to know Uruguay as a local. The wine tour is pleasant and the opportunity to talk about winery with a local producer and winery owner is unique! It is really worth it to the ones that like wine and are eager... More

Ryan and The Wine Experience lived up to the hype on TripAdvisor! The whole experience was fantastic and I hope to get the chance to go back. Ryan picked us up from our hotel on the peninsula in Punta del Este. and drove us out along the coast to Narbona Winery where we started the morning. We enjoyed a private... More

What a great introduction to Punta del Este -- we opted to arrange a tour with Ryan instead of the excursions offered by our cruise ship and are so happy with our decision. Ryan met us at the dock and took us to Alto de la Ballena -- as California vineyard owners we truly appreciated the ability to meet the... More

I recently visited this winery and had the best tour from Lorraina. She was articulate, fun and full of knowledge. I was blown away by the gorgeous property and thoroughly enjoyed my first Olive Oil tasting! I can't wait to come back and bring my family. This is just too special not to share!
