Al Ramirez Wine Tours is a series of wine related activities, that point at Chile's top valleys, wineries, and cities, always keeping a very realxed personalized experience as the main purpose of these tours. As a Sommelier and City Tour Guide, I make sure people have the best experiences when it comes to wine and cultural tours in Chile. Myself and my staff are prepared to carry out fun and informative tours throughout Chile and Argentina.Wine tours to Colchagua, Casablanca, Maipo, Aconcagua, Maule, Curicó, Mendoza, Limarí, Choapa, and more. I also carry out Private city tours of Valparaíso and Santiago, in which I have specialized working for many companies over the years. Fun tours, good food, a great time, and memories that will last a lifetime, is what I can propose to you, if you're up for it. Contact me, and I can set something up. I have tour programs, as well as tailor-made tours that I design especially for you, which we can talk about via phone, skype, or e-mail.

Al is the best tour guide/planner/contact who we have ever encountered and my husband and I travel the world extensively. We planned to be in Valparaiso and Santiago for two weeks after a cruise and wanted to visit the wine regions as well as the cities. In September, I contacted someone who was well-reviewed on TA; however, it proved disastrous... More

This tour was excellent. From the personalised booking procedures, to the helpful and friendly guide and driver. We can highly recommend this tour of the Casablanca wine region.

Gotta tell you this was the way to definitely start off my vacation. First day was jam packed right off the plane. Al and his driver Caroline were awesome. Feel like I made some life long friends. Got to see some really cool and dynamic street art in Chile and the RE Winery was amazing. Should have shipped more home.... More

The whole experience was excellent. The communication before travelling was first class and the tour itself was perfect. Our guide in the van spoke perfect English as did our guide at the vineyards. We did the cool premium tour and I can't recommend it enough

I organised a group tour on behalf of CruiseCritic members sailing on a cruise around the South American coast. There was a lot of demand for this trip and I limited participation to 4 sub-groups of 12, each travelling in 16-seater Mercedes Sprinters with individual drivers and guides. I might be biased, but of all the private tours on this... More

A fellow cruise member organized the tour. It started small but ended up as 4 vans of 12 passengers each. Cruise port was a mess. Our van was the last to arrive, about 40 minutes late. Guide and driver seemed unsure what to do (my wife and I speak Spanish). After being stuffed in the van for 30 minutes meandering... More

First off, we would like to ask the readers of this review to first take a few things into consideration: 1. We have cancellation and satisfaction policies. If you leave the tour before because you decided that doing a group tour was not for you, then we have to charge you regardless, because another couple could have enjoyed of what... More
