We had a great guide! The tour was very interesting and fun.
service was great and on time, we stopped for lunch at a recommended typicall chilean restaurant.. la vaca echa.. this was great food and beautifull setup with great service.. A1
Tours at the winerys where ok.. the tours are run by the wineries which is ok.. only suggestion is to improve the wine tasting process..
Our tour guide, Cecilia, was great - very friendly, informative, and spoke excellent English. The pick-up at our hotel was very prompt and convenient. It was just myself and my husband on the tour. The tours at Cousino Macul and Concha Y Toro were informative, and the guides there also spoke excellent English (Concha Y Toro was my favorite of the two). Overall, it was a great tour, with the only downside being the price (approx. $180/person).
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!
Cousino Macul winery tour was excellent, Concha y Toro tour not quite so good (possibly because we had just done the previous winery tour - bit too similar I guess). The Driver was good, but wasn't really a guide.
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 !!!
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 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.
