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!

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...

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
