We had a wine tasting at Playa Vik - the most beautiful hotel I've seen in my life. Really breathtaking! We had wine tasting at the terrace and watched the sun goes down. Ryan was a real expert in the field and taught us things about wine I never have heard. Very pedagogic and we actually learned a lot. And... More

Our cruise ship arrived in Punta Del Este on Christmas Day. Though Ryan would not usually work on Christmas, he made special accommodations for us so that we would not miss this experience. He picked us up at 6:00 along with another couple that was from Brazil. Then he gave us an extended tour of the area that was on... More

We´ve been doing a lot of wine tours around the world but this one WAS THE BEST ! Ryan is really polite and helpful just like a good friend. You can have a nice taste of cheese and another yummy food while Ryan is teaching how every bottle is made - the wines were superb - tasteful and well chosen.... More

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
