Jorge was our tour guide, and we shared the tour with another couple who spoke another language- poor Jorge had to say everything twice! But it was a lovely day and the wineries were fabulous.
Very enjoyable and relaxing. Convenient pickup time from our hotel, informative guided tours in English, and excellent wines offered for tasting. Lunch stop had great Chilean food and music. Pace was good and an overall memorable experience.
Combining the two wineries was an awesome idea! The mix of the family-bred little Cousiño Macul and the large corporate-style Concha y Toro was a perfect way to experience the Santiago wine scene.
We were the only two on the tour ! A very good and knowledgeable guide made for a great day out to two of the best wineries
We actually visited the Undurraga winery instead of Cousino Macul and it was an excellent tour - our young guide certainly knew his stuff and spoke fluent English, as did the guide at Concha y Toro. Altogether a very enjoyable and worthwhile day - highly recommended.
What a enjoyable experience- first, the local tour driver was prompt, with a very clean van, and knowledgeable of the area. The two wineries were extremely informative in sharing their wine creation process, with very nice gifts at the conclusion of the tour. Finally, the lunch location chosen by the driver was very nice, reflective of local Chile cuisine. A worthwhile day trip while in Santiago.
Both wineries were fantastic, a great way to spend the day.
Our driver and guide was outstanding. Both wineries were interesting and the tours were good. Close to Santiago which reduced driving time and left more time for the tour.
We enjoyed our day visiting the two wineries and having lunch at an outdoor restaurant that served authentic Chilean dishes. Our guide was exceptional.
Did not visit Cousino Macul as indicated in the itinerary, but another winery. Concha y Toro was too big anf the tour was not very informative.
Great tour but would have wished for one more winery. Guide was extremely friendly and genuinely nice!
We were confused as the first winery stop was not the one we expected. However we enjoyed (Aquatania) . It was small but the private tour was excellent and the guide good. Concha y Toro was a big contrast. the ride from the first one to it was a bit too long but the tour was interesting. A major drawback was that we could not communicate with Oscar as he spoke no English. However, he was pleasant.
The visit to the Wineries were great the tour guide was just average and could have given us much more details about the city and country !!!
The wineries were very interesting and their guides provided a lot of good information in a fun way -- we liked both tours. But why did Viators send both a driver and a guide for this tour? We only needed a driver! The guide just sat around and waited for us while we were on our tours. She was a nice lady, but paying for two people to accompany us made the price of this tour much higher than it should have been.
Worst trip I have ever booked with Viator or anyone else. My wife and I had booked it some some weeks earlier from the UK.
Firstly, the tour operator did not turn up despite my ringing them twice in the previous 24hrs. to confirm pick up time. After a few more phone calls, a driver appeared who did not speak English who took us on the "tour". The two wineries were ok but you only got 2 wines to taste at each.
I complained to the tour company on the day and was compensated with a free lunch which we did not have time to finish.
You can visit these wineries fairly easily yourself and far more cheaply. Do not book this trip. I had to giver it one star to lodge this rating. I am complaining directly to Viator also.
