Seeing Mendoza through Juan's eyes was a memorable experience. Having grown up and spent all his life in this lovely city, his intimate knowledge of its history and oenology was invaluable. He took the trouble to understand our requirements in advance and then delivered the best possible experience. The wineries we visited were fantastic, and the traditional lunch he had arranged was a gastronomic delight.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Uma! how are you? I had a lovely day sehared with you and Usha. Thanks for your words and stars! Hope to see you again! Cheers, and thanks again Juan Cruz

This tour was amazing, Juan our guide was excellent and very knowledgeable. We now know more about wine, from it starting from the grape till it pours from the bottle. Would highly recommend. 5/5 Best regards Robert and Bev

Juan Cruz is an excellent guide and organized two fantastic wine touring days visiting both Luan and Uco. I hope to return one day and Juan will be the first person I contact. His English is excellent and he did a great job of translating when a tour was only available in Spanish. The meals he organized were 5 Star with good wines to go with the food. He has my highest recommendation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Rick! how are you? Thanks for your words and for the five stars! It was a pleasure to have been you guide!

We had two perfect days visiting wineries with Juan. He is very knowledgeable, and the bodegas he chose were outstanding - excellent quality wines, each special, and at each, we tasted their best wines. The lunches were outstanding also. We learned about Argentina and Mendoza, and immensely enjoyed our time with Juan. It was his warm and engaging personality and his wonderful companionship that elevated our lovely days in the Mendoza wine country to an unforgettable and fantastic experience. 10 stars!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Words sometimes are not sufficient to be grateful for reviews as this one, and more difficult is to find words to describe the atmosfera during our wine tour days. Thank you for your companionship and for sharing your lifes history with me. It was an enormous pleasure! Regards to all of you! Thanks! Juan Cruz
Norman DaileyUnited States
We had two great half day tours with Juan. His suggestions for lunches at two wineries was fantastic, they were even better than the highly rated restaurant in town that we requested (thanks for the reservation, Juan) In addition the city tour was wonderful, so much so that if we ever need to drop out of sight, Mendoza will be where we head. Juan inparted his love for the city that we maybe sipping wine in a park in the future.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Norm, Susan for your nice words! Is a pleasure for me to show my province, the rest is part of the love that I´ve for this magical place in the world. You were a great company during those two days. Thanks again! Kind regards

Dec 6 w/ Juan Cruz. Most definitely a 5 out of 5. What a fantastic experience. Juan and the wineries he chose far exceeded our expectations. He provided an excellent and unique experience and was extremely knowledgeable about the region and culture of Mendoza and Argentina. I would highly recommend Juan as a tour guide and would love to return some day and tour with him again. Beth and Judi
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you ladies! was a great day, great wine, great food, but the most importan: great company! Thank you for your words, come back soon! Cheers Juan Cruz

This private wine tour was EXCEPTIONAL. Juan is a very professional and caring guide, who delivers a truly unique, diverse, and intimate experience. He was prompt to our pick-up, courteous to our several questions, and gracious in every interaction. We live in the Bay Area and visit Napa Valley often, and this wine tour was top notch. The wine and lunch were incredible, only outdone by Juan's service. We said 'hello' to a tour guide in the morning and said 'farewell' to a friend by the evening.
Ashley WoodworthUnited States
I can't say enough wonderful things about our day with Juan. His choices of wineries were spot on based on the information I gave him up front. We gained access to places we would not have found or sought out on our own. In addition, the winery guides knew Juan and took their time with us, the experiences all felt very personal. The highlight of the day was an absolutely incredible lunch in a small private space at a local restaurant where we all got to enjoy food and wine together and chat. Amazing day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Ashley, how are you? how the guys are? Thanks for your words... I would love to see you all of you some day again here in my province! what a great group of friends... It was a pleasure to have been your guide, I really enjoy your company and our talks during the day Once again... Thank you to trust in me, for one of your vacations day. Cheers for all of you! Have a great year!
Geeta RodriguesUnited States
Juan Cruz D was our wine tour guide for a day, and what a great experience it was! He picked 4 wineries for us in Mendoza - each with to its own exquisite charm. The individualized wine tours and tastings were comprehensive and generous, and many of the wines were truly exquisite. Lunch was a wonderful surprise - we spent several hours eating, drinking, sharing stories and laughter. Juan is an easy conversationalist, ever attentive to his g
El mejor tour/guía de todo Argentina. Juan estuvo al pendiente de nuestros gustos del vino y fue modificando el itinerario para que fuera mas enfocado a la uva que más nos estaba gustando. La comida fue espectacular, en un lugar totalmente local y original. No podemos estar más agradecidos ya que fue un highlight de nuestro viaje, valió totalmente la pena. Preparate, ya que puedes acabar comprando más de 17 botellas de vino como nosotros.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow! gracias por tus palabras Federico y por las cinco estrellas! Pasamos un día excelente, guardo muy buenos recuerdos. Espero que cada vez que abran una de esas botellas, recuerden Mendoza y su viaje. Un cordial saludo para ustedes

Juan Cruz did a great job taking us to a nice variety of wineries and changed his plans based on our desire to see olive oil production. We had a great lunch at a really unique local restaurant. He was a great host and very informative and atttentive to our needs. We would highly recommend Juan Cruz and will use him again when we return to Mendoza.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for you review Alan! Was a pleasure to be your guide. I really enjoy your company. Make me know when you open "the bottle" of wine ;) Best regards
Judy SingerUnited States
We are wine lovers and I grew up in California. We had high expectations & specific wineries we wanted to visit in Mendoza. My husband composed a "wish list" that we forwarded to Juan. The resulting customized private two day tour was everything we could have hoped for and then some! Juan gave us the best possible experience by selecting diverse & high quality wineries in a thoughtful and flawless itinerary. He was a pleasure to spend time with and made sure to deliver a top quality experience! thanks :)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you guys! Lovely review! Was a pleasure, drink some mendocinean wine at home for me ;)
Jennifer ChinUnited States
Most of the comments I have seen are from couples, and as a single tourist for this part of my trip I was a little worried how it everything would work out. Needless to say, my worries were unfounded. This tour is really a must do for Mendoza if you enjoy wine in the slightest. Juan expertly picked the wineries to visit - and each was a completely different gem. Not to mention the lunch...oh the lunch was excellent! I never felt rushed or out of place, Juan was an excellent and gracious host for this tour
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your review! we had two lovely days! As I said, thank you to trust in me for your vacations!
Paul SloanUnited States

Debbie SchlueterUnited States
An awesome day with a truly wonderful guide. Juan Cruz was so knowledgable not just about the wine and wineries we visited but also about the local culture and history. Made forces wonderful day of learning and great wine. Visit 3 really diverse wineries and an 1800 estate for an anemone lunch in a private DR Juan was very good at keeping us on schedule within making us feel rushed in the least. A true gentleman and a10+guide
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Debbie, Alan! Thanks for your words! We had a lot of fun, and a great day in between wine, vineyards and food! Thank you for your company. Hugs for you! Thanks! Juan Cruz
Juan was a fantastic guide and exceeded all our expectations. He was both passionate and knowledgeable about the wine tours. He really made our day selecting the right places to visit and eat. We had the treat of meeting Carmelo Patti, an opportunity to meet the winemaker himself, truly fantastic experience. A day to remember.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Rachel and Horace for your review and lovely words! Was a great day! Thank you!
Jean Marc De SilvaUnited States
He knows his hometown and knows the best places for a flavorful wine tasting experience. Book him for the Andes off roading as well. Just as much fun if not more so!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your words Jean Marc! Thank you for the recommendation to other travelers about the Andes tour... Was a pleasure to share the day with you. Thanks!
Hamish W.United Kingdom
A really good day in the Luyan de Cujo. Juan was an excellent guide, knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble. We had done a similar tour ten years ago but this one was outstanding. The Wineries he chose to take us were really interesting, we tasted some very good wines and the lunch venue and meal were a real bonus.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You Hamish for your words! Was a pleasure to have been your guide! I´ll have very good memories of you! Kins regards to you and Mary!!

Juan treated us like family. He took care of us in each of the wineries we visited, pre-arranged an awesome lunch at a rustic restaurant, and explained history & local legends of areas we saw We really enjoyed his company & he made the day very special.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jill! I had a great day with you! Was a lovely pleasure!
Debra BettinsonUnited Kingdom
We had a great day out with Juan yesterday. Visited some lovely vineyards, and tasted some excellent wine. Juan was very knowledgable, and good company. He contacted me a few times before the tour to confirm timings. A great tour finished off with a lovely lunch.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I also had a great day with all of you! Great group! Thank you for everything! Say hi to Paul, Liz and Dave please
Lysa StoneUnited States
We could not have asked for a better tour. Juan was knowledgable, fun, and interesting. We went to 3 wineries, all with comprehensive tours and tastings. I won't tell you which ones because Juan likes to leave this a fun surprise but they were premium bodegas. He certainly has a good reputation at the wineries because everyone knew him and was happy to see him. Lunch was extraordinary and everything was prearranged. I highly recommend Juan as your tour guide if you want the best wine in Mendoza.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your words Lysa! we had a great day, was lovely to have been your guide. Please, say hi to Linda, Maria and Bete. I hope to see you again!

Debra GuyUnited States
What an amazing experience! I absolutely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Mendoza. Juan Cruz has a wealth of local knowledge. He took us to 4 wineries, all different in production size and in their methods of making wine. Each tour was interesting and the tour guides were a delight. We had a very nice lunch with Juan Cruz at a restaurant he selected with a private room and an impressive selection of food. Juan Cruz was a joy to work with bringing a passion for Mendoza and great energy to our day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your lovely words! Was a great day because you made it like that... Enjoy yous Mendocinean wines in Bariloche! Kind regards Juan Cruz
Stephen ShippeeMount Pleasant, SC, United States
Our trip to Mendoza was turned in to a spectacular journey to wineries and the most amazing lunch experience entirely due to our guide, Juan Cruz. He was wonderful to us from the moment he picked us up at the airport and throughout our entire day tour. I simply can't say enough good things about Juan other than YOU MUST BOOK a tour with him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your words! We had a beautiful day, with good wine, good food and especially, good company. Thank you for trusting in me and to permit to be your guide, and thank you for recommending myself as guide!! Kind regards to your family! Best for all of you
OMG! Juan is such a beautiful person with a heart of gold. He personalized this tour that you wouldn't get on any other. (can't give up his surprises with any details) We loved him so much that we did another tour with him 2 days later which was another AMAZING day off roading in the Andes! The star rating we gave doesn't compare to the life long memories he gave us. He's truly our 'Little Lone Ranger'. Thank you, thank you...luv TEAM ARGENTINA from Canada
