“Wine Tasting & Lunch in Mendoza”
Reviewed February 4, 2014

We booked at the hotel front desk and I thought I was merely hiring transportation. Within a couple of minutes I realized that our driver was a highly articulate tour guide with an extensive knowledge of wine and production. His command of the English language was very impressive. Throughout the day he enlightened us about wine and the Argentine way of life. I would recommend his services to anyone visiting Mendoza.

“Gustavo is a must!”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

I cannot say enough good things about Gustavo Delucchi Wine Tours, most especially our fantastic guide - Gustavo. I just came back from visiting very good friends in Buenos Aires and we decided to take a trip over to wine country. Right from the beginning, he made us all feel comfortable and well taken care of. His English is excellent and his knowledge about Mendoza is immense. We booked his tours for three days and each day Gustavo arrived early and had the car ready with snacks and water.

On the second day of our trip, we focused on the Lujan de Cuyo wine region of Mendoza and we were taken to 4 great wineries. His intimate knowledge of both the wine and the producers really added to our experience.

We also made a trip up to the Andes mountains on our third day. Gustavo picked us up early and took us over to the base of the mountains. Once we arrived at the base of Aconcagua we trekked up the mountain for a couple of hours. Once we found a creek with a few rocks to sit on, we took a break and enjoyed traditional matte together. Gustavo was kind enough to hold our camera and take the most amazing pictures while we hiked.

Make no mistake when booking your trip to Mendoza, Gustavo is a must! TJ

“Amazing Mendoza Trip with Gustavo”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

My husband and I just returned from an amazing trip to Argentina, where we spent 4 days in Mendoza and the surrounding wine regions. Gustavo was our guide throughout and he made our time in Mendoza so wonderful and enjoyable.

Before our trip, Gustavo took the time to really understand the type of trip we were looking for. We wanted to explore the wine, food and culture in Mendoza and were not looking to do anything too “touristy”.

Gustavo put together 2 awesome days of fully customized wine touring with a mix of great wineries, restaurants and culture. As Gustavo got to know us better, he suggested some minor changes to the itinerary, all of which were spot on.

We were impressed by Gustavo’s vast knowledge and really appreciated his warm and candid demeanor. We experienced everything we had hoped and had a blast.

Gustavo was extremely accommodating and helpful and went above and beyond a wine guide and driver. Anything we needed, from making dinner reservations to lending us his adaptor, to just running errands, Gustavo was always happy to help.

If you’re looking for a more personalized experience in Mendoza, we highly recommend him.

“Go With Gustavo”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

If you're going to tour wineries in the Mendoza area it's best to hire a guide and Gustavo is excellent. Wineries don't take walk-in's... an appointment is needed... and Gustavo has both connections and depth of knowledge to share. The winery employees even deferred to his explanations which were more detailed and informative. He gave me a chance to learn more about wines as well as the history of Argentina and the culture. You'll enjoy the bodegas and their wines, and the time with Gustavo.

“The BEST tour guide in Mendoza”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

This review is WAY overdue, but Gustavo is the absolute best tour guide you can have. He really listens to what you want and caters to your every need. It is especially important to have a guide for the wine tours because it is set up very different from other destinations (like Napa, etc). You need to have a pre booked tour in order to go to the different wineries. Gustavo is an expert at wine, and knows everything there is to know about Mendoza. We ended up hiring him a second day to go horseback riding (which he goes with you) and to the brewery. My husband and I seriously had the BEST time, and it wouldn't have been the same without you Gustavo! His English is impeccable as well. You will have the absolute best time with him!
