Maipo and its famous wineries


This tour will take us to a stunning valley area southeast of Santiago in the heart of Chile's central Andes. Located at 60 minutes from city center Maipo valley is well-known among locals because of its wine and wild nature. Mountains, valleys, grape plantations, snow caps and Maipo river are some of the highlights of this region that it stands out for its geography, shape and colours
We drive up to Pirque which is sort of a main village very quite boasting typical Chilean one story houses, lovely square and remarkable location.
After driving across through a bridge to reach the other side of Maipo river to catch more gorgeous vistas.
First stop at Concha y Toro for a wine tasting and english speaking tour.
Second stop at Santa Rita winery for another wine tasting and tour

Itinerary

It starts between 9 and 10 from Santiago Hotel. One hour drive up to San José de Maipo with a couple of stops to take pictures and see those panoramic views.
If customers are fond of walking or trekking there is a tour to a waterfall which is awesome nearby San José.
This trekking is optional and you must pay a U$ 15 extra fee.
After touring Maipo by noon or one a stop for lunch is considered in the countryside to have a local meal.
Then I give the chance to customers to do a wine tour near the restaurant.

A Recent Review of this tour

We had a wonderful time with Juan Carlos! He was informative, gracious, funny, charming and a very good driver. He was flexible and had a nice Ford Explorer with air conditioning that he drove us around in. I loved all three wineries that we visited.
