Great day with wonderful wines, foods and good company with Ryan. There are very few tailored wine tasting experiences in the Montevideo area. This private tour is just that with ample time to talk and sample Uruguay's top wineries. Don't let the cost scare you away, as unlike places like Mendoza and Chile, Mendoza winery's are spread out and a... More

My husband and I had a fantastic day visiting some lovely wineries with Ryan. We had done a couple of wine tours previously however we've never had a more knowledgable and fun guide. We visited a couple of smaller wineries which made for a much more personal experience. I highly recommend Ryan and The Wine Experience.

I took Ryan's tour with my boyfriend Gustavo and a really nice Brazilian couple. Ryan picked us up from our hotel and right off the bat he was very charming. He had awesome stories to share about his life in various countries throughout the world. He made Gustavo and I feel very comfortable and balanced the dynamic of the group... More

It's been a little over a month since my best friend and I we're traveling through Uruguay. The day we spent with Ryan was THE BEST. We had an amazing time at the winery, and were even so lucky to have the owner Carlos show us around and even do the tasting with us. Ryan's ability to make sure, not... More

We did the Gourmet Experience tour with Ryan. Before we even started the tour Ryan sent me loads of watsapp messages with restaurant recommendations for Colonia (which is where we were the day before the tour). He also helped me out with sorting the bus to get to Montevideo and gave me countless other really helpful recommendations. The tour itself... More

When in Montevideo, one should visit the Bodegas region along Ruta 5. Some bodegas you can't miss: H Stagnari, Bousa and Deicas. But you should try to have some Tannat sparkling wine by Pisano, if possible. When in Punta del Este, a must-go place is Bodega Garzón! It is superb! Great wine and food! Don't forget to book your visits... More

A wonderful experience. We went to two small, family-run wineries, and both times our group of 6 was the only group there. High quality wines offered at the tastings, and at the second the winery had prepared us empanadas for lunch. Highly recommended.
