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

.........you want to have a great time and enjoy wonderful food and wine. We had a tour and then a tasting at the winery Alto de La Ballena. Great wines,especially the Tannat, and great people. We then traveled on to Estancia Vik, a private resort on a hilltop with only 12 rooms which is a get away for the rich... More

My husband, two friends and I had an amazing Wine Experience with Ryan in Uruguay. It was more than just a vineyard/wine tour. We learned a ton from Ryan while truly enjoying every sip of wine with the delicious cheese (made there) at Bodega Narbona. Followed by an incredible meal at Playa Vik - truly one of the best -...

We discovered Ryan on TripAdvisor. We arranged The Wine Experience at Punta del Este while cruising on the Silversea Silver Spirit. Ryan met us at the Tender dock and guided us for the remainder of the day. It was a very pleasant day. Ryan first drove us into the country to visit a local vintner. After touring the vineyard we...

After reading the fantastic reviews, we decided to book a tour. Ryan patiently and promptly answered all of our questions promptly and recommended the Sunset Gourmet tour. We've been wine tasting all over the world and this was possibly the most unique experience ever. Ryan's extensive wine knowledge coupled with his great sense of humor and his local knowledge make...

My friends and I booked Ryan from the Napa Valley after reading his reviews on Trip Advisor. We so thoroughly enjoyed our day with Ryan. We visited a small local winery in Uruguay, tasted wine accompanied by cheeses made at the vineyard. Learned alot about their farming processes. Toured Punta Del Este with Ryan and visited the Vik resort. Enjoyed... More

If you do nothing else in Uruguay, do a tour with Ryan. He is the best host-- so helpful, engaging, and knowledgeable about wine. This was one of the first things we did during our trip in South America and my husband and I considered it the highlight of our trip. When we go back to Uruguay, this will be... More

My husband and I did the Gourmet and Horse Riding Experience with Ryan. Off the bat, Ryan was very responsive and helpful via email in booking our tour. On the day, he picked us up at the house we were staying at and drove us to our destinations. My husband was a little apprehensive about the idea of doing a... More

We spend two wonderful and memorable days tasting wine with Ryan- visited three wineries and had a long leisurely lunch at Playa Vik. Everything was first class- the wine, the tours the experience. Ryan is an amiable, fun, knowledgeable host and the wineries all exceeded our expectations. Most fun was the opportunity to meet with the winemakers at Bodega J... More

Got to see the area and a winery/small vineyard and a fabulous piece-of-art hotel in the area. Juan was great and knowledgeable. The only reason this is not 5 stars is the fact that four of us paid a lot of money for this and we were all wedged into a piece of junk micro-mini Chinese car with marginal air... More
