Best decision we made was booking three days of wine touring with Juan! He is charming, friendly, professional and very knowledgeable about the area. He handled all the tour logistics so all we had to do was sit back, enjoy the scenery and drink wine. We were always part of a small group tasting allowing us to get the best experience from each visit. Working with him ahead of time was refreshingly easy as he is incredibly responsive. We highly recommend Juan as he made our trip to Mendoza truly memorable.

There are no words to describe how incredibly awesome Juan is! He created our journey in Mendoza that was exceptional. He's charming, kind, patient (especially when hiking), well educated and funny! His vehicles are clean and his truck perfect for the mountains. We met as strangers and left as life long friends.

Juan Cruz is a very knowledgeable and friendly guide. We spent 2 fun-filled days touring the Mendoza wine area and the Andes Mountains. We would recommend him to anyone looking for local insights into Argentinian history, culture and current events.

Juan is a spectacular guide. He is well prepared, knowledgeable about the region, flexible, punctual, and thorough. We spent one day with him. From the minute he picked us up until 1 week after he was always checking in on us, he was making sure all was ok with us. I cant say enough positive things about Juan, he is a true gem.

Juan Cruz is an awesome guide! Not only knowledgeable, but he took care of every single detail during the tour such as my well being during the ascendance (water and/or stops), pulling over along the way to get the perfect picture and buying some traditional "facturas" to enjoy on our way to Vallecitos. Even more, after finding out that I like sporty activities he suggested we could include going to the capony center, and we did! Great experience. I totally recommend him!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Belén! Thanks for the five stars review! Was a great day, and you did it like that because of your personality. It makes me happy to know that you really enjoyed these activities and you and I hope that these good memories of Mendoza last for a long time in you. Cheers! Juan Cruz

Juan provided a terrific day out for us touring the local vineyards. The lunch stop he recommended at Ruca Malen was one of the best meals we had during our 3 week holiday and accompanied with some lovely wines. His knowledge of the vineyards and their wines is endless and very informative. Book Juan to take you round Mendoza wine country and you wont be disappointed.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear John, Diane, Declan, Anita Thank you for your five-star review. I am very happy to know that you enjoyed your day, walking with me through wineries. It was a very nice day because of your company. Thank you for choosing me Cheers!!

If you want an authentic and unforgettable day in the Andes, look no further than Mendoza Horseback Riding with Juan! Juan is prompt, professional, and incredibly personal. He takes extreme care to ensure his guests have a top notch and authentic experience. The horseback riding takes place in an ideal location well up into the Andes, and the views on the drive up and on the ride are unable to be believed until you see them yourself--make sure you do! This was a perfect way to kickoff my trip!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: What I could can tell, after such a beautiful review, but THANK YOU! It was a pleasure to take you to my favorite place to ride horses, as I tolk you during our messages, the place is unique in Mendoza... Thanks for trusting me for your vacation in Mendoza. It was really nice to see you so connected to the horses and enjoying the Andes mountains like that. I’m the grateful one! I hope to see you again in Mendoza, with horses and good wines! Un fuerte abrazo Juan Cruz

This was a truly amazing day. Juan was very knowledgable about the area and wildlife and did everything he could to make our day perfect. The day included mid morning coffee and croissants in a wild location, unlimited stops for photos and view points along the way and a fabulous asado lunch. Juan's passion for the place was incredible and we saw all the wildlife we hoped to in very close range: guanaco, chinchilla, grey fox, lots of birds including condors circling just above us. Perfect.ju

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Hellen and Ian, thank you very much per this five star review! The Andes mountains are the one who did everything for me, I just drove carefully through their valleys until we discovered every single surprise these magical mountains hold for us... I hope you will keep the memories of that beautiful day for many years to come. The Andes mountains will keeping secrets and surprises for us, please come back soon! Best regards Juan Cruz

Juan was an amazing guide who gave us a great Mendoza wine tour at very short notice encompassing 3 diverse wineries. He was punctual, kept us on track and gave detailed insights of each winery and the scenery encountered along the way. His English and driving skills were both beyond reproach and he went out of his way to make sure we got to the airport on time after the tour. If I could give more than 5 stars I would.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Dennis for this lovely five star review! It was a pleasure to guide you in this wonderful province and to get you to know in depth about this wonderful world that is WINE. I wish you had more time to tour my beautiful city, but there will certainly be more opportunities. Here I will be waiting to be your guide once again! Salud! Juan Cruz

The tour with Juan was amazing! A native from Mendoza, he was well-informed on the different vineyards and kept me engaged throughout the tour with his local knowledge. The tour ended with an incredible 7-course lunch accompanied with a wine tasting from one of the wineries we visited. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting the area. It was the highlight of my trip to Argentina!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Romain! Thank you so much for this review and the five stars! Was a funny day, good talking, good wine and food, and the most important: a new friendship! Good races, good life! Cheers!

Juan Cruz was terrific!!! He was prompt to respond to my [many!] questions before the tour; and he was a delight to have as my guide. Not only was he articulate and knowledgable about Mendoza and her wines, but he knew all the personnel at the wineries, which was an added bonus. The lunch he arranged for us was also fantastic. But what I will always remember was his effort to find me a hotel, when my airbnb turned out to be "a disappointment." Great guy!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Paula, how are you? It was a pleasure not only to be your guide and show you part of how much we have in this beautiful province, but also to be able to help you in those little details. As a traveler, I know it’s good to be able to count on someone local in the face of certain unforeseen events, and well, better than being able to help you. On my list of next countries to visit, there is the United States, then I will let you know that I am coming. I promise to bring some of your favorite wines!

Absolutely brilliant experience, highlight of our holiday so far. Juan is great company, perfect English, knowledge ranging from flora and fauna to the voyages of Charles Darwin! The drive itself is thrilling and Juan is clearly a very experienced off road driver, we felt very safe throughout. Saw many animals including a flock of 'ostriches'. Lunch is in a lovely isolated ranch run by a very friendly chef, delicious. Won't go into any more detail at risk of spoiling the surprise but can't rate highly eno

We felt safe and cared for. We did this beautiful tour with our 5,5 months old baby, he was always paying attention to our baby girl. Juan is very thoughtful person, nothing left to chance. His tour is well organised he knows a lot of the nature, for example he taught us a lot about the herbs. This tour was amazing the spectacular views, so peaceful! Ohh I forgot to tell you about the lunch... In one word amazing.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Sanne, Herman, Felien Today I can say that I feel relaxed, after having managed to take the youngest client that I ever had, to the Andes mountains. It wasn’t a "light" responsibility, but she’s is prepared as her parents, she’ll be a great mountaineer! Every time I go to that beautiful place, or drive in front of the big potato factory, I remember you very pleasantly. Hope to see you again in Mendoza, or in another big mountain around the world Cheers! Juan Cruz

Great trip! We took the trip to Laguna Diamante with Juan Cruz. The pick up was exactly on time. The land rover defender was great. Juan Cruz was a very experience and careful and safe driver. During the long ride, we had great chats with Juan Cruz and his assistent, both have wide knowledge of the area. The picnic lunch was excellent, the table presentation was fantastic with lots of delicious home made food. The plan was well made and very relaxing, all the small details were taken care off.
