Rod was excellent and very funny. Small group was great. Winery staff was knowledgeable and helpful, and everyone was very patient. Suggestion: Give directions to the hotel from the metro. Google Earth is not accurate.
Perfect for family with little or no knowledge about wines. We learnt a lot and experienced some tasty wines and finally saw Casillero del Diablo....
Lightside was we were picked little late from our apartments due to some bad traffic however made it on time to the tour
I felt this excursion was overpriced for what we got. Basically we got transportation to the winery and back, and the winery tour was given by the employees of the winery. We were picked up on time, but still had to wait about 40 minutes before the winery tour actually started. We enjoyed the winery tour, but feel that we may have saved money just taking a taxi to the winery instead.
Once at Concha y Toro the tour was nice. Only 75 minutes long. About an hour driving in the van to and then another hour from the winery with no commentary. So I found it a long afternoon and a little expensive just for a 75 minute tour
