Three of my group booked a Gaucho Day with Luc at Mendoza Andes and the experience was truly wonderful. Very personalised service from a great team who love what they do. Meeting and riding with the gaucho, visiting his house, eating lunch with his family,and playing with his gorgeous children were all part of an experience that the three of us will treasure forever. The scenery, the wildlife, the people, the horse-riding, the ADVENTURE! far exceeded our expectations. And no, you do not need to be an experienced rider. None of us were. A few drinks back at Luc's Monkey Hostel afterwards capped off a perfect day, so much so that six of us booked a full day winery tour for the following day, and well, once again Luc and his team delivered big time. He customised the tour to suit our schedule and preferences and dropped us off at the airport afterwards for our flights back to Cordoba. Two beautiful wineries, an olive orchard, a boutique beer garden, food, wine, bicycles and two great guides in Luc and Leo made for a perfect finale to our Mendoza weekend. If you plan on visiting Mendoza, do yourself a favour and get in touch with these guys. Very highly recommended!

We enjoyed two days of tours with these wonderful folks. The first was a private wine tasting day with Leo, which included visits to three unique vineyards and an incredibly delicious meal at the final stop--excellent value for such personalized service. We were so impressed that we went back to the agency with Leo and booked another full day tour up into the Andes for a photo safari with Luc, the owner and his employee Jose. We were gone about ten hours and saw all kinds of rock formations, herds of wild llamas called guanacos, condors, abandoned mine shafts, an eerie old empty hotel, ancient rock glyphs and much more. It was something that made Argentina come alive for us with all of the knowledge these two personable men had to impart. It was fun, educational and memorable; absolutely the highlight of our three week trip. Great value, great people. I would highly recommend them!

Our group of 7 took the mountain hiking trip. We rode in two vehicles up to a retreat where we waited for our guide. We then traveled to the property of a sheep and horse owner who also hosted the meal after the hike. The guide was very accommodating to the hiking limitations of our group and modified the hike to follow a river rather than the usual steep hike up challenging rocky slopes. The scenery was beautiful -- lovely vistas. The sky was turning grey with a pending rain storm. One person in our party suffered from the altitude and the guide handled that very professionally. We returned to the house of the owner of the land in light rain and enjoyed a meal of freshly baked bread along with cheese, pepperoni and some bread baked with cheese, We also had good Argentinian Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon, sitting by the fire as it poured with rain outside. On the return drive we stopped to look at guanacos. Everyone in the group enjoyed the hike very much and would recommend it to friends. Good hiking shoes or boots are a must as is rain proof jackets/bags.

We pre-booked three tours through the Mendoza web-site.From the very beginning I felt we received prompt and personal service even before we arrived in Mendoza.With Juan as our english speaking guide,we enjoyed three memorable days which we will always regard as an exceptional experience.We did the wine tour first,which was well organised and very informative.Our trekking day was slightly marred by poor weather but Juan was very skilled at adapting so added a special tour of Mendoza at the end of the day to compensate.The gaucho day was awesome in every sense of the word!We enjoyed every minute of our three days with Mendoza Andes....it was almost like being taken out by a friend.

Mendoza Andes hosted a perfect tour! We spent the day with Luke, the owner, very personable and knew exactly how much to involve himself in the group. He took us to all of the tour stops but allowed us to have our own experience with the wineries and sort of stayed on the sidelines. But he clearly had a good relationship with the places we visited and was willing to make changes. Part of our group had been to one of the ones he had on his list the day before and we simply asked him to change it and in one phone call we were off to somewhere else!

The car tour was absolutely perfect and so comfortable, especially after a few glasses of wine. We were able to visit an olive oil factory and two wineries for such a reasonable price! Would definitely suggest to anyone.

He also dropped us off at a wine bar in town called Vines which was a great way to finish off the day!
