The tour was really nice. Our guide took the time to explain everything in Spanish and English. The visit of the land and the cellar were very instructive, and the wine testing was good.

Highly reccomend this tour. The only problem was it was a mixed language tour. The English version was a bit shorter, and not all of the Spanish speaking guests respected our time. It was hard to hear the guide in English due to the chatter of the other guests.

Excellent tour. The winery is really beautiful and charming. Ours guides both in the bus tour and at the winery were great. There is a tasting at the end of the tour and the prices at the local store are very attractive.

A viña with Chilean history, with beautiful gardens and a gorgeous Church. My kids and I had a great time, especially testing the wines.

Pickup and transfer going out ok. Good, safe driver. Tour was basically good, although it got a little boring hearing about all the praying done to saints, especially since none of the prayers ever seem to have gotten answered. Sometimes the logistics were a bit chaotic or uninformative. The transfer back though was hell - we were taken off of one bus, and put into a small van for return to the hotel. The van sat there for 20 min in the 30 degree heat with some fan on, but still uncomfortable because they couldn't figure out the plans. We were then told we had to get out and wait for another van, and no idea when it was coming. Some walked back to hotels, we took a cab because the two of us were carrying 7 bottles of wine plus other purchases. Don't want to use this service again.

Really good visit! I recommended it. The grounds of Santa Rita Winery are beautiful and learning about the various aspects of the wine making process was very interesting and well explained. The rule of the 5 applied here as well, since in our group of about 20 people there was this annoying person from Spain who was trying to compete with the guides, showing off his knowledge about wines during the wine tasting. In such a large group you can almost count with one jerk. The other thing that I did not like, was the time wasted at the beginning. A very nice bus picked us at 8:30am, full of other tourists going to various VIATOR tours. The bus took us to a central meeting place where people switched to other buses going to various tours. We actually left for the winery one hour later. I was under the impression that I was going to be taken in a private tour, immediately after leaving our hotel, which was not the case.

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.

Enjoyable excursion. Rather an industrial tourism experience we were an hour in the bus picking up around Santiago before we could set off but worthwhile visit.

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.
