He provided us with information about the city and areas we toured. His English is great and his car was immaculate. While planning the tours he responded to our emails promptly and... More

We found Marcelo on this site and contacted him to pre-arrange transportation and reservations to wineries, restaurants and a tour at a small olive oil factory. Our driver, Alex, was exceptional. He was knowledgable, spoke great English, and was very flexible. I highly recommend these guys!

We have been in Mendoza for four weeks. Since we wanted to visit the Bodegas and many other local places, we needed a good, consistent driver. Mauricio Molina is outstanding. He arrives on time. He is prepared with stories about the local area and has made many winery reservations for us. His suggestions for restaurants has always been a wonderful... More

please avoid him at all costs. He charged me for car hire.... 900$ and did not return my money when he did not provide the car. i have given him ample time to respond and he has promised but, never delivered. He needs to choose another business

He arranged 4 visits for us including a lunch at Ruca Malen. We also visited Mendel, Achaval Ferrer and Carmelo Patti. He made all reservations and... More

Like the previous review said, we found Mauricio's contact on A LOT of forums and he was PERFECT. We are backpacking, so we were on quite a tight budget. Mauricio was very prompt in his replies and thoughtful for all our requirements. He lined up visits to four different wineries for the day and one of the best lunch we've... More

We also just got back from Mendoza. We had contacted Marcelo at the last minute (marcelo.villegas@hotmail.com) and he responded immediately. The first day we had already planned our itinerary and he executed on it perfectly. The second day we simply asked Marcello to choose and we had an awesome time. He speaks great English, is polite and knows the area... More

Good hotels and log cabins, excellent wineries with the typical Malbec served to one! The weather in spring is awesome, fresh at night but quite warm during the daytime, we even went asparagus hunting! Take some warm garments for the evenings, good shoes to walk in the hills.

We spent a couple days with Marcelo Villegas touring wineries in the Lujan de Cuyo and the Valle de Uco regions near Mendoza. Marcelo is a very nice guy, very personable, knowledgeable relaxed, and upbeat. He was very knowledgeable concerning the wineries and wines and took us to several smaller wineries that were really excellent. He selected a couple great... More
