Ryan does not disappoint! He stayed in great contact via Whassapp, and the tour was fantastic. We tasted so many wines! Loved that it was in the old study of the owner's grandfather. And the lunch topped it off perfectly with a special menu from the chef. Presentation was fabulous! Ryan has much personality and is full of great information.... More

This was a lot of fun. I was able to request a specific set of three wines to taste from Gon who is the level II Sommelier who is working behind the wine bar. Gon gave me the history, region and the expected tastings of each of the three wines (tinto, blanco and rose) and allowed me to sample the... More

I don't think I can add much but my five stars to what everyone else has said about Ryan and the Wine Experience. The winery tour was the first thing I did on my trip to Montevideo and my only regret was that I couldn't buy more wine. Ryan knows his stuff and is a very interesting dude to boot.... More

What an amazing experience! Our sunset tour was our second tasting with Ryan. We loved the first one in Montevideo so much that we did his sunset tasting. He had a wealth of knowledge about wine and he is so fun to be around. The entire experience was unforgettable. I highly recommend his tours.

The perfect introduction to Montevideo. We had two tasting flights- Uruguays signature Tannat and several whites, served with tasty cheese and snacks. The conversation and education with the owner and staff make for a lovely experience . Great friendly people building this creative small local business. A highlight!

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
