“Brilliant day out - especially the meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

Went on a wine tour by minibus in a group of about 13 people. We visited three wineries. We tasted two wines at each of the first two wineries and four wines at the third before going to a restaurant for one of the best lunches we have ever had with plenty more wine.

You can pay over £100 per person for a top end wine tour in Mendoza. This tour didn't involve top end wines but it was well run, interesting and just right for us and great value at about £38 each. We'd probably pay that for the meal alone back in London. (It was at the Cave del Canon restaurant).

“Great fun x2”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2012

My wife and I went to Mendoza on our honeymoon. We did a full day private tour of three wineries. It was great fun. The wineries are beautiful, the staff are friendly, and the last winery had an "aroma room" where you could take your time to smell 30-40 scents typically found in wines. It also had a six course meal at its restaurant on the second floor, overlooking the Andes.

Our driver was conversational and accommodating. He splits his time between Mendoza and Miami, so he spoke flawless english. Driving in and out was informative and pleasant. All-in-all well worth the expense.

Also, we did a half day "trek" excursion, joined by some very friendly hostel goers. Driving up to the lakes was beautiful. The trek was about 1.5 km along a creek. At the top, there's a waterfall and the guide set up ropes so we could rappel down the cliff next to the waterfall. The restaurant is cheap and decent. We could have just sat outside there all day drinking beers, but we ended up heading back to our hotel at 3:00.

In sum, the staff is friendly and the adventure worth it! If we had had even one more day in Mendoza, we'd have taken another trip with this company.

“Excellent Uco Valley Private Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

A concierge at our hotel in Mendoza recommended Kahuak's Uco Valley Private Tour, and we're very happy that we took her advice. She made the booking, and then we walked several blocks to pay Kahuak in person. The people in the office were friendly and efficient, and made us feel that they really cared about our winery experience.

A private driver picked us up at 8:30, and gave us a lot of information along the way. We did 3 winery visits and tastings (Pulenta Estate, Atamisque, and Salentein), and at Salentein, we had a beautiful four-course lunch in their beautiful dining room. At Pulenta and Atamisque, the two of us had a knowledgeable guide all to ourselves, and so we were able to ask many questions. As an unexpected bonus, on the way back to Mendoza we passed a roadside rodeo. Our driver pulled over and waited for us while we spent 30 minutes or so watching events that were so different than the ones we see at California rodeos.

Our only tiny disappointment was that the day was cloudy and a bit rainy, and so we didn't see the Andes in their full glory! Not Kahuak's fault, however! It was a wonderful day, and we thought it was a good value for the money. We highly recommend it.

“Great trip up the mountain”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2012

We had a great experience dealing with kahuak. The staff we dealt with we're all really easy going and helpful. The trip ran On time but due to lots of ice we never reached the summit. Still a great days walk in stunning landscapes. Manual was an easy going guide with good English. Would have topped it off if we could have stopped at San Antonia refuge for a hot drink but we had a great experience all the same. Thanks kahuak.
