          Wonderful Day!
          Amazing day. We are staying at the Park Hyatt in downtown Mendoza. We were picked up promptly. Enjoyed two great tastings followed by a five course lunch with wine pairings, all of which were world class. Our guides were Nadia and Fernando, both a joy! You will not be disappointed!

          Beautiful and fantastic wine tour!
          such an amazing tour. Our guide Mica and driver Fernando were great, and Mica provided her own sommelier-in-training knowledge on the drive and during the tastings. We visited a nice mix of wineries (corazon del sol - a smaller boutique winery, piedra negra - a bigger but still small / medium size that has all organic wine, and bousquet - a fantastic 5 course lunch + wine pairing with a beautiful setting and view of the Andes). Luis from corazon del sol even let us try some mate for our first time in Argentina so we got to cross another thing off our checklist. Thank you to this group and Mica & Fernando, this tour was a highlight of our honeymoon that included many highlights!!

          Experienced Riders Only
          The scenery was gorgeous and the horses easy to manage. That’s about all I can say that’s positive. Don Daniel would describe this ride as easy. DO NOT GO IF YOU ARE INEXPERIENCED OR FEAR HEIGHTS! A few in our group were actually terrified on the way down. Also, the day was so disorganized. Upon arrival, we waited 90 minutes for our horses, with no explanation provided. The asado was pretty mediocre with inferior meat and wine. Our tour guide who spoke English pretty much ignored us. I’m sure there are much better riding experiences in Mendoza.

          Great day tasting wine
          We had a great time on the tour. Especially enjoyed tasting the local boutique wines. Our guide, Matias, was very knowledgeable about the wine, area, and geography. He shared many local traditions. His English was excellent. He was very friendly and made us feel comfortable. The driver was very good and it helped he understood english.

          Most memorable experience of the trip!
          This was the most fun and memorable experience my husband and I did on my 30th birthday trip to Argentina! Matt was a great lead and Daniel really gave us an authentic encounter with the natural wonders of Gaucho and ranch life. We got to have a little breakfast and tea before we took off on our sweet horses, rode for a perfect amount of time through the mountains, stopped for lunch that Daniel prepared (an incredible array of steaks, veggies, and Malbec!), and then headed back to our hotel in Mendoza. We will remember this day forever. This is a must do if you are traveling to Mendoza!

          Gaucho Day
          Fantastic experience in the mountains. The ranch is in a beautiful location and the trek is amazing. The horses are extremely well-trained and it's easy to follow the trail. Tim was an excellent guide and Daniel cooks great asado!

          Spectacular view of the Andes Mountain with wine tasing
          I highly recommend this wine tasting tour of the Uco Valley. This is the second wine tour for us in Mendoza to explore the Uco Valley. Both our driver and tour guide are knowledgeable and we got spoiled since it's just us two in the whole tour. We visited a total of 3 wineries all day with a curated lunch-tasting +wine pairing menu in one of the winery in their restaurant, with a spectacular view of the Andes mountain. This wine tour will take you closer to a breathtaking view of the Andes mountain on our way to each of the wineries we visited that day, and we got lucky that day since the skies are so clear and blue all day.

          Great day on horseback in the Andes
          This was a great day in the fall on horseback in the Andes. The day starts with coffee and sopapillas, and Daniel and his crew do a great job. The scenery and views are spectacular, and lunch halfway in the ride is simple but delicious. Chori and beef cooked on a grill, wine, bread, and you can drink the water right out of the glacier-fed stream nearby. This is good for both experienced and novice riders.

          We visted Corazon Del Sol, Piedra Negra, and Dominique Basquet. All amazing wineries. The driver and tour guide were excellent too! We had our 2-year-old with us and she had a blast too! Thank you for everything :)

          Uco Valley Tour - November 2022
          My wife and I really enjoyed the tour with our guide Andrea! We were picked up from our hotel in Chacras at 8:30 AM and taken to three wineries: Corazon Del Sol, Piedra Negra, and Dominique Basquet. The first two were private tastings! The third was the lunch with wine pairings as well. Andrea was intelligent on the wine making process, warm to the clients, a perfect English communicator, and she curated a great experience! We made it back to the hotel after 5pm so plan the day accordingly.

          A perfect day!
          Driver Guillermo and sommelier Carla picked us up from our Mendoza hotel and during the drive to the Uco Valley it became apparent that we were in for an absolute treat. The two of them were extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the local wine industry but it was genuinely pleasant to talk to them about all kinds of things. Their English isn't perfect (although to be fair, better than my Spanish), but that didn't stop us from having interesting and fun conversations throughout the day. Our first stop on the tour was Bodega Piedra Negra, where we were welcomed with our first glass of wine for the day and an opportunity to take in the stunning panorama of the surrounding vines and the Andes. Meanwhile our Piedra Negra guide Regina gave us an overview of the winery's history. Afterwards she showed us the productions facilites and the cellar. Finally, we got to taste three different wines, 1 white and 2 red, one of which in 2 vintages. Since we are far from being wine experts, we were very grateful that Regina guided us through the process, providing an insightful introduction to each of them, which meant we never felt out of our depth. After buying a couple of bottles we moved on to the next winery, which happened to be just next door: Bodega Gimenez Riili. Our guide there, Veronica, gave us a quick tour of the premises and switched between Spanish and English with ease, since we were joined by an Argentinian family. We got to taste some unfinished wines straight from the casks and then sat in the gorgeous restaurant area by the fireplace to try another 4 of their wines, accompanied by a scrumptious cheese board. Our last stop was another 20 minute drive away at restaurant Rincón Atamisque. We got to pick from several options to build a 4 course meal, with each course being paired with a glass of wine. The food was absolutely delicious and we enjoyed the wines too, although we have to admit that we were more than a bit tipsy by this point. Finally, Guillermo and Carla made sure we safely got back to our hotel and we shared another couple of good laughs on the way. For our next trip to Mendoza, we'll definitely make sure to choose them as our guides again. The whole tour had an authentic, local flair to it. It seemed like the wineries were chosen for us not because they are trendy but because they are genuinely worth a visit. We couldn't have wished for a better day!

          Exceptional Experience
          We had a fabulous time and the wineries and the lunches we had were above exceptional. I can not speak highly enough about Alex Crux and the gourmet lunch we had there, Everyone should put that on their must do list! Van was perfect and our driver Guillermo was a delight! We had a perfect two days of wineries in the Uco Valley!

        Great full-day tour of Mt. Aconcagua and the surrounding area! Our guides were very knowledgeable & provided us with a wealth of info about the mountain, Puente del Inca, and the history (both scientific and folkloric). The lunch at the end of the trip was also fantastic - so much food & delicious wine! Thank you!

        We had a great day going to High Andes with Agustin. Me and my husband were the only ones in the tour (normally max of 8). It was very personalized and as it is just the day after Christmas we were surprised we still had the tour even its just the two of us.

        A very well organized tour that includes breakfast at Uspallata (where they shot 7 years in Tibet and Motorcycle diaries) and then 2 hours hike at Aconcogua National park. Then visited Puente del Inca (old bridge made by Incas) and then lunch back to Uspallata in a mountain restaurant with an excellent asado or parilla.

        Agustin made the tour very fun and informative. He is a very smart and knowledgeable guide. If you can request for a guide (which I am not sure you can) then I will definitely recommend Agustin. He even gave us insight of the wine tour they offer which we will definitely do next time we are back in Mendoza.

        Thanks tour a lovely tour of the high Andes!!

        I went on this one day mostly driving tour through a beautiful road though the Andes to a short hike in Aconcagua National park to see the famous mountain there. The drive and guide was very pleasant stopping for some nice views or points of interest along the road and the meals in the little mountain village were very good (though of ridiculously large portion for lunch). I found the experience rewarding and the tour service very good!

        We spent a wonderful day in May with Tim doing the high mountain tour and could not have been happier. He picked us up from our hotel bright and early, he couldn’t have been more friendly or knowledgeable and he really went out of his way to make sure we had a great day. His jeep was extremely comfortable and little touches like bottles of water for us were much appreciated. He stopped several times along the route to point out things he thought we may enjoy and was happy to personalise the hiking route to our liking. He was also an avid photographer so we came away with lots of non selfie shots for a change! Everything about the day was perfectly planned and we would not hesitate to do another tour with Tintos should we return to Mendoza. Special thank you to Delphine for being so accommodating and helpful with our questions before our tour.

        Very good short hiking experience. Very amazing view. But the sun is very strong. We did the shortest hiking route with around 3 hours to the bridge. So nice start for the mountain.

        We did the Photo Safari Tour, which took us high into the mountains above Mendoza. Our tour guide, Timothee, was the absolute best. This was a full-day filled with photo opportunities around every turn, with a delicious lunch to boot. If you are looking to do a tour while in Mendoza, don't miss this one!
