This tour was one of the highlights of our month long South America vacation. Ryan was very knowledgeable on wine and did an excellent job giving us a brief tour of Montevideo and explaining wine in Uruguay. He selected a boutique winery to visit and it was amazing and charming. The winery manager gave us a tour and explained the process and then the winery provided a marvelous lunch of grilled meats and vegetables as typically found in Uruguay. We could not have asked for more. Will do it again when I go back

A wonderful experience with Ryan Hamilton. Very knowledgeable. A great visit and tasting at the Carrau vineyard hosted by the owner himself. Excellent sampling of five of their products, and a chance to buy a couple of our favourites. Lunch was great fun, prepared by one of Montevideo's premier chefs, and accompanied by a couple of Ryan's favourite wines. Can't recommend this one highly enough!

The tour guide was very well informed and it was great to meet one of the owners of the vineyard. Lunch at the restaurant Il Forno was amazing!

Ryan is a fantastic tour guide. I wish I had him for more tours but sadly not enough time. I highly recommend this tour to those who love wine , food, and learning a bit about the process of wine making.

Our knowledgeable English speaking guide (and driver),Ryan, picked 4 of us up for our tour. He was entertaining and informative on the drive to the winery (which wasn't too far out of town). The winery we visited (Bodega Carreou) had a 10th generation member of the wine making family give us the tour, which included a chance to see wine being bottled and labled. After a short tour of the facilities we went to a cozy tasing room. We were offered a wide array of wines, from the starter series to the premium line, including some older vintages. There was no shortage of wine to be drunk. After we had our fill, Ryan drove us back to town to a special restaurant for a special lunch, with a special wine that Ryan brought to accompany the meal. I was fearful the meal would be something typical and unmemorable. I shouldn't have worried-the meal was the best we had during our 14 day South American trip and the wine was great!. It was obvious the chef took pride in his craft and rightfully so. This wine tour was well worth what we paid and I recommend Ryan without hesitation!!
