Transportation Recommendation for Mendoza Wineries

I'm not one to post recommendations, but I wanted to pass on this information to other travelers looking to make the most of their trip to Mendoza!

I went with three friends and we wanted to get to out to Lujan de Cuyo for a day and visit some vineyards. After doing some researching, it seemed we could either do a group tour or hire a private driver. I found the names of a few drivers in the Mendoza forum, emailed them, and a very nice gentleman named Miguel Sanz responded very quickly.

Miguel was super knowledgeable about the area, friendly, funny, and spoke great English. He created a great itinerary for us and we had a blast! He picked us up at the apartment we were renting, drove us around all day, and didn't rush us when we had lost track of time at one of the vineyards. Choosing a driver versus a tour group was a great decision because it made the experience very unique and much more personal.

Miguel really made our trip! You will not regret booking him, I promise you. His email address: j_miguelsanz@hotmail.com

Safe travels!

We also used Miguel for a wine tour of the Uco Valley and we had a fabulous day, one of the best days on our one month trip to Argentina. Miguel also organised for us to go on a road trip up to Aconcagua with another colleague of his Pedro Quiroga. Again it was fantastic.

Our airport transfers were free.

Driving Medoza Tours is really fabulous if you want personalised service. I also recommend the Uco Valley trip, it is really stunning.

I can also highly recommend Miguel. He made my three days in Mendoza last month truly unforgettable. The wineries suggested to visit, the driving, the lunch suggestions and the general conversation was truly excellent.

Miguel was recommended to me from my friend who used him late last year. Miguel was courteous and extremely knowledgeable of the area and the wineries. It was very nice that I did not have to look into any wineries or make any reservations. I put my trust in Miguel's recommendations and he impressed me with his itineraries. Even when I asked to add a last minute activity, he obliged and made it happen. Miguel is extremely reliable and a pleasure to be around. Highly recommend you hire Miguel to escort you throughout the several wine areas in Mendoza!

My husband and I visited Mendoza and were fortunate to find Miguel Sanz!!!! We intended to do just a day or 2 of wine tasting during our stay but ended up spending 5 days touring different wine regions and even a day of hiking near Mt. Aconcagua with Miguel. He opened up a whole new unexpected Mendocinan experience for us! He took our winery requests and added some of his own choices which were far better than the ones I picked. I call him "The Godfather of Mendoza". He knows everyone and just about everything about all things Mendoza! Every winery we visited welcomed us with hugs and we were often treated to special high end wines not included in what the other tours were tasting or were given a little wink and smile and offered an extra glass .... I know this is because Miguel is so loved and respected in the community-everyone bends over backwards to impress his guests/customers. He is extremely professional, always on time to pick you up and speaks perfect english. Contact and trust in Miguel: he will make your experience unforgettable! CHEERS!!!!

We totally agree with you about Miguel Sanz. We had the perfect day with him last week. He picked us up promptly in the morning, took us to special wineries having arranged everything. He was easy and fun to be with and we enjoyed his choices for wineries and lunch very much. We would highly recommend him.
