Perfect timing, perfect Winery, and perfect Guide! to my mind half-day tour is even better, you will have full evening to enjoy the city or do something else. Don't forget your card, to buy some perfect wine in the local store, as per my observation prices are almost 20 from Duty Free...

I booked this tour based on prior reviews and it was everything that was promised. The winery was beautiful and our winery tour guide spent about 1 1/2 hours with us showing us around and explaining everything at the winery. Our bus guide was also informative on the trip to and from the winery. This tour was great value.

Best winery tour ever. Gorgeous historical house and grounds, great guide with very good English, excellent lunch in property Café. I wish we had more time to have lunch in the actual restaurant, the menu looked divine. Very nice store as well. The Unesco Heritage Cellar: Wonderful.

Splendid. This is no ordinary winery. Huge, hi-tech, historical, educational...
The guide was knowledgable and well-spoke in English and Spanish. The wine-tasting was educational as well. This is a beautiful place only 30 minutes from town center. It even includes a museum and a great little restaurant with great-tasting traditional fare.

The local trip provider was accessible, the pickup was timely, the guides were engaged and spoke excellent English, and the tour itself was thorough and fun. At the end, because of some mis-communication between the local office and the guides, the guides had to scramble to return me properly to my hotel, but they accomplished that with ease.

The winery tour was perfect. The bus picked us up at our hotel. The group that went on the tour was a very acceptable size. The winery was beautiful. The guide ( I forgot his name) spoke english very well. The tour was half in spanish and half in english, but the way it was done felt very organic. The overall tour was wonderfully arranged. I will definitly recommend this to anyone who comes down to Santiago.

A really enjoyable the trip, it was impeccably organised. A beautifully presented vineyard, with a great tour and a wonderful guide. I couldn’t fault it. My only disappointment is that I couldn’t buy crates of wine and ship them oversees.

We were fine picked up from our hotel. At the winery we were very welcome and we had a wonderful guide who told and showed us everything there was to show and tell about the winery. It was a great excursion which I can recommend to everyone.
