We had such a great experience with Mick, our guide and Sergio, our driver. Our tour started with a n extensive tasting of various, delicious wines by the beach! We had a glass of sparkling wine followed by a selection of white and red wines paired with choclateals, cheeses, mear and savory snacks. We then took a leisurely stroll along an oceanside path to see penguins ans gorgeous views of rhe ocean, flora and fauna. At the end of the path, we tried a few more wines before making our way back to our start point. Next, we went to an alpaca farm and had so much fun learning about these adorable animals and saw the yarn making process which is quite fascinating. Last, we went to Flaherty Vineyardand let me say, Mrs. Jen is an AMAZING chef!! We had a glass of their sparkling wine wine completely home made dishes such as parmesean and cracked pepper bread, ravioli with ricotta and tarragon, pork confit with onion risotto and an incredible lemon tart. We enjoyed a nice red blend with lunch, the after we had tour and tastings of two more wines. Throughout our tour and before, Mick went out of his way to coordinate our tour, even helping us get dropped to the airport. The small size of the tour made for a very unique experience during which we all bonded and had so much fun making jokes. We drank a lot, learned a lot and ate a TON! Overall, this is a fantastic experience that is not to ve missed!!!

This was an outstanding tour. Our tour guide was Mick. He met us at the hotel. We went to the coast where we viewed penguins, and partook in a very extensive and educational wine tasting. We also visited an Alpaca farm where we were fortunate to meet the owner and listen to the history of the farm and Alpaca research. Also visited a small winery Flaherty Wines where we had lunch served by the owner. Mick was most informative and an exceptional tour guide. Highly recommended.

We cannot recommend this tour enough to visitors to Santiago! Mick has an extensive knowledge of local wines and is excited to share that knowledge with you. We had the opportunity to taste a variety of excellent Chilean wines that we would otherwise never have known about. We had a wine tasting on an absolutely gorgeous beach, where we also had the opportunity to view magellanic penguins and other local wildlife. We also had the opportunity to tour the Quintessence Alpaca farm and to learn a lot about raising alpacas and processing their wool to make yarn and fabrics. We were also able to get up close with the baby and young alpacas. The owner of the farm is a wonderful and kind lady who built the entire operation up from scratch. We also had the opportunity to visit Flaherty Wines to taste their wines and were lucky enough to have Ed, from the husband and wife team who own the winery, give us our tour. The wines were superb, and we hope to return when they have their onsite kitchen open for lunch. Overall, this tour one of our favorites in Chile, and we would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Santiago with an interest in wine and wildlife.

First of all Mick was amazing. Comfortable ride to sites, great stories and explanation of things along the way. The penguins WERE THERE! Amazing area, we got to explore for a while after sampling 3 wines on the beach. The Alpaca farm was amazing as we got to experience them running all around us at one point. The winery visit was very intimate. The winery was small, but we got to interact with the owners and walk the grounds. Pick up and drop off were on time. I'd easily recommend this tour to anyone looking to do something outside of Santiago.
