We did two days of wine tours with Mauricio and were so glad we did! He is fun, delightful and knowledgeable about the Mendoza wine region. He took great care of us to make sure we saw some of the most beautiful wineries and taste some of the best wines! There were a few wineries I wanted to visit but Mauricio picked out the rest and we loved them all! He made all the appointments, made reservations at great lunch spots and safely got us from Winery to Winery! He made it so easy and enjoyable for us. I highly recommend Mauricio’s service and feel that he really elevated our experience in the wine region. I hope to come back and tour with Mauricio again!

Mauricio is an organized and thoughtful guide. He shows a great deal of flexibility and goes out of his way to provide his clients with the experiences they seek. He replies rapidly to questions in advance of the trip and is happy to provide necessary information. He is a super nice guy who is pleased to share his vast wealth of information about Argentine history and the current challenges confronting the country.

We were picked up promptly at 9 AM at our hotel and we’re quickly off to a great small winery. Miguel the driver and guide spoke great English, was really knowledgeable on the region, and provided amazing customer service throughout the day. We didn’t do much research on specific wineries before hand but I understand you can request specific stops. We ended the day at a small winery with restaurant and great views of the Andes. Great day.

We booked a Valle de Uco tour but when the driver arrived we were booked on a Cuyo Valley tour. Neither the Viator confirmation nor voucher indicate the tour you are booked on and trying to correct this at pickup time is impossible. We paid for a more expensive tour but received an poorer alternate. Also the stated allowances for tastings and lunches are about 50% under the actual charged costs.
Overall very frustrated with the experience with Viator in Mendoza.

We had our driver Juan Manuel Mercado (Juan_mercado.09@live.com.ar) for three days for wine Tours as well as going to see Mt. Aconcaqua which was an all day visit. He is a safe and efficient driver and very fun. Our guide who was with him on our trips was Julieta Kogan Moyano (JuliKM@gmail.com). She was so knowledgeable and it was clear they had worked together before as they bounced information off of each other. Julietta was extremely knowledgeable, fun and she even showed us how to make mate while we were riding along. I believe each of these people work separately as well, but they were great together. It's nice to be with people one can relax with, while learning. We certainly consider them new friends.

Not only did we have interesting tours of wineries and olive oil production, but we had the delightful experience of speaking with our guide, Mauricio. Mauricio's family has been in Mendoza for 10 generations and has been closely associated with vineyards and wine production. His knowledge was a great addition to what we saw at the vineyards and olive grove. We had a wonderful lunch at a family-run restaurant in Maipú. The food was delicious, and the conversation ranged from life in Mendoza to politics in Argentina to Argentinian Baroque choral music. There are many winery tours out of Mendoza, but the personal attention and knowledge one receives from Mendoza Private Driver.com make it exceptional.

Cannot thank Mauricio enough for such a beautiful experience in Mendoza. I have been on many tours around the world and he is truly one of the best. He is incredibly responsive via email (he emailed me within an hour) and was very flexible and helped us put together the perfect itinerary for a girls weekend in Mendoza. Once we settled on where we wanted to go, he took care of booking everything. He thought of every detail from organising the seating in the car so we could talk with ease to ensuring we were always ahead of the crowds. He was also incredibly flexible and added an extra bodega that ended up being a highlight.

The following day, I travelled solo and went into the mountains. It was truly one of the most spectacular experiences. There was an accident on the main road but Mauricio took it in his stride and changed our route. We ended up on the most spectacular drive. Having someone so flexible and knowledgeable about the area truly made a difference.

Having a driver when doing a Mendoza wine tour is a must. The wineries provide the guides but you'll never make it home without a driver. The wine pours at each winery is a full glass and typically you taste 3-6 wines at every winery. Even if you just visit 3 winery you could potentially drink 12 glasses of wine in just a few hours!

The driver took care of all the reservations at the wineries. He picked the very top end wineries with the best wines.

Ricardo and Ramiro are very special. They know details of the special small wineries to go, can explain what is really changing in Mendoza wines since 2002, and more than that, are gently, patient, and not expensive tour guides. They received us at the airport made all appointments, and reservation, we payed directly to then with zero problems.

Guide conveniently picked up right outside our hotel and led us on a beautiful tour in both English and Spanish. We went to a special winery in the morning where we had a private tasting and conversation with the owner and winemaker, Laureano Gomez. Then we went to lunch where our guide took care of the reservation and a table was waiting for us when we arrived. Beautiful scenery, wines and hospitality. Would recommend - but note we also had to pay for the wine tasting and the cost of lunch once onsite. Not included in the tour cost.
