My daughter contacted Marcelo Villegas through this site and they consulted to arrange two days of the most memorable wine tours in Luhan de Cuyo and Uco Valley. Marcelo was the perfect gentleman -- soft spoken, prompt, pleasant, knowledgeable, and in all ways accommodating. He speaks excellent English, having lived and worked in Toronto. The tours and meals he arranged... More

Our trip to Mendoza would not have been the same without Marcelo. Right from the start, before we had even left the UK, Marcelo had excellent communication with us and answered all of our questions. He helped us to shape our perfect trip. We used his services to visit amazing vineyards but he arranged the most perfect dinner at one... More

We had Mendoza Journeys schedule two days of wine tasting and then drop us off at the airport in Mendoza after a quick city tour. Owner, Marcelo was knowledgeable, on time and about 50% less than the big, fancy tour operators. His driver, whose name escapes me spoke very good English having lived in Toronto and was a pleasant guy... More

Marcelo did a wonderful job! We were with a prominent vineyard owner from Napa Valley and toured some not so mainstream vineyards. Marcelo found them easily and had the car waiting for us with the A/C on when we finished. Car was clean and being bilingual helped as my spanish is fragmented and probably would have landed us in Chile...

Marcelo took my family of four including two children on a day long trip to three wineries. It was a fantastic day. Marcelo arranged every detail including notifying the restaurant in advance that my wife and children are vegetarians. His selection of the wineries was excellent as each one was different yet complemented each other. When I forgot a bottle... More

We hired Marcelo for 2 days of touring. Lujan de Coyu on day 1 and the Uco Valley vineyards on day 2. Marcelo was punctual, courteous and informative. 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

We booked a day visiting bodegas in Lujan de Cuyo. David arrived on time, and car was comfortable and clean. His English was excellent. He was very knowledgable about the area and genuinely friendly. 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
