“two days and two tours”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

We took both the Lujan de Cuyo and the Uco Valley tours. We ended up with the same guide both days, and she was wonderful. The Uco Valley was further away and had our favorite winery, although every place we went to was good. We got to see such a nice variety of vineyards. We got a discount by booking online and by booking both tours. Each day took us to 3-4 wineries, and each included a fabulous late afternoon meal. The tasting pours are large, so we learned we had to not drain each glass.

“Great all around!”
Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

We went the other day on the Lujan De Cuyo tour and it was amazing. Very knowledgable guide and the wineries were great. We were one of two couples on the tour which made it more intimate and more personalized. The cost was $150us per person, one of the more expensive tours around town but it was well worth the extra expense. The lunch at the end was amazing. If your looking to do a wine tour in or around Mendoza I highly recommended this company. You will find other tours for 800-1000pesos per person but those only come with a driver and no guide or the private tastings and private experiences this tour offers. Also since there is a maximum of 8 people per tour you are not waiting around for 40 people to get back on the bus.

“Fantastic wine tour”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

We did the one day tour of lujan de cuyo with Ampora and it was one of the highlights from our trip in Argentina. The whole day was well organised, informative and classy. We visited four vineyards with lunch at the last one. This is a very professional tour company and would recommend it to anyone who wants to sample some of the region's best wines.

Thanks to our guide Sabrina who was extremely enthusiastic and knowledgeable!

“Informative, delicious and beautiful!”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

This tour was absolutely amazing! I did a bike tour in Mendoza as well and they do not even compare. The bike tour was not bad but it is simply different.

Ampora wine tour was very professional and took care of everything! I wanted to do a full day wine tour and do it right and this was the greatest pick and worth the extra cost!

Pros
- Bus was great and nice ride to the vineyards.
- Tour guide was very informative along the way and pointed out history marks, etc.
- The vineyards were amazing, beautiful and great information was shared by all tour guides.
- The wines were amazing. The guides at all the vineyards answered all my questions and were very helpful. I definitely know much more about wine now!
- They printed a list for me of importers in Canada that import their wines.
- The food at the last vineyard was fantastic. They accommodated my lactose intolerance which was very nice.

Cons
- It felt a little rushed sometimes from vineyard to vineyard. Not enough time to really sit and enjoy the wine, explore the vineyard or take pictures. Maybe a suggestion would be to offer three vineyards in same area with lunch.
- Lunch was very late so bring a snack with you because wine on an empty stomach is not good.
- Would like to suggest that the tour guide takes a picture of the group at some point at the vineyard and shares it with the whole team.

“Great wine tour”
Reviewed April 5, 2014

Excellent tour and great guide. Nice and interesting vineyards, each unique and tasty wines, all very different so you don't get bored. Generous portion sizes compared to the uk! Fantastic lunch and I think great value for money considering the lunch and the quantity and diversity of wine. Fantastic!
