Fue una experiencia que sobrepaso nuestras expectativas. Patricia, nuestra guia, nos ofrecio un recorrido por las mejores bodegas en Lujan viendo las bodegas de Chandon, Norton, Navarro Correa entre las que puedo mencionar. Paramos a almorzar en un lugar muy pintoresco en el area y aprovechamos para ver el pueblo de Lujan. Fue todo muy personalizado, parando donde queriamos y estando el tiempo que quisieramos. Es un viaje que no olvidaremos! English version: This is the best tour you can take!! It worth the money you pay. For us, it was over our expectation.

The tour comprised of three different places and each one was unique in its own way. I really enjoyed each one and it gave a complete picture of the industry as a whole. I would recommend this tour for most people interested in wine or olives.

The tour was full of unexpected experiences and delivered amazing views in all directions. I would recommend this tour any day to those who like raving mountain ranges but don't necessarily want to spend a lot of time hiking or going there.

It's cheap enough and definitely worth going! The guide Paulo was attentive and knowledgeable, he and the driver Pablo did a fantastic job. And the view... Oh!

100% would recommend ! Great guide (Marta) and breathtaking landscapes ! Don’t forget to bring a jacket
