I you can, by all means rent a car. It need not be a 4x4; just make sure that it has good clearance and a good engine. You will be climbing mightily. After leaving Mendoza to the North (this it the only time where it would be easy getting lost) one follows what looks like a never ending straight road.... More

I loved the scenery. Being close to wildlife representatives is the best (I've been just meters away from a grey fox!). I hated not being able to spend more time in every spot (the drawback of being part of a tour group). It's worth taking a long calmed time there. The old hotel and its gardens are beautiful as well... More

My partner and I went on this tour and was overwhelmingly impressed. I learned so much about the area and its nice history that I never knew before.

This is a very nice and interesting ride going up the Andes... Views are very interesting... The roads are tricky and I would never drive it by myself... A tour is the only way to do it.. Some of the views are outstanding

Many families gather here. There are arts and crafts booths and opportunities for photos. Our amazing guide Marta Rued (m.martarueda@gmail.com) told us the history and took us to wineries and to the high andes- she is the best guide we have had in over 40 years of travel.

Since we weren't very interested in wine tours(espeically in winter time) we found out there weren't much to do in Mendoza. We ended up booking VIllavicencio Day Tour through argentina4u.com. Our choice was excellent! The booking process was easy, we were picked up on time, the guide was bilingual and last but not least, tour itself was amazing! The nature... More

This place is incredible, you can see the old hotel as well as climb a pretty little mountain that will allow you too see the amazing mountains of Mendoza from another perspective, a lot of agencies take you to this place as part of the "Alta Montaña" tour, totally worth it!
