As an adopted Chilean, Mick did a great job providing both a clear English tour as well as a great wine experience through some of most unique wineries. He had a wealth of knowledge and thoughtfully showed us through biodynamic vineyards, local trends and explaining everything along the way. He has true insight as a locally certified Sommelier as well as great relationships with key players in the Chilean wine industry. We enjoyed the Cabernets and Carmeneres, dominant in the region. Ended up buying quite a few to take home which we knew we would have difficulty finding, even in LA!

My sister and I booked this tour to learn more about wine and the Miapo region. Mick did that and more. His personal connection with small vineyards and the people there made this an excellent tour with good wine and food. He has a ton of knowledge to share about wine and is an all around great guy to spend a day with. Highly recommend this tour.

Mick is a fantastic guide, and we were so glad we went with his tour. We hit 4 wineries, including Antiyal, which is clearly not normally set up for tourism. Mick happens to know the incredible family that runs the place, and is presumably the only tour operator in town that does tours there. Our tour took us to larger (though still boutique) wineries, as well as an enormous winery (Santa Rita). We got to see how the production methods vary so dramatically between them, and got to directly compare the results of those different methods. Couldn't have been happier.

Mick is wonderful, we can feel his passion in wine tasting throughout the trip, his explanation is clear and professional. Highly recommend!

We could not have been happier with Mick's tour. I live a half-hour from Napa and study wine, yet Mick taught me things I didn't know! The behind-the-scenes access and overall insight made this well worth the price. Would highly recommend for everyone from people new to wine to people who (try!) and study it!

This wine tour is a must! Mick was a gracious, friendly and knowledgeable host. He carefully selected different sizes and types of vineyards with a variety of wines. The region is incredibly beautiful and produces some amazing wines. It was a fun day away from the city made super easy with Airbnb pickup and drop-off. Small, intimate group full of great conversation and lots of laughs enjoying good food and wine. Really no complaints. Don't hesitate - book this tour!

We had a fabulous wine tour in the Maipo valley that included wonderful organic small vineyards to some of Maipo's most famous. Our tour guide, Mick - who is sommemier trained - was great! He has a great knowledge of wine and the Chilean areas that produce some truly great wines. We would recommend Mick's tour to any wine lover, including sommeliers! The pairings and wine tasting were fabulous.

We had a fantastic tour with Mick who is not only an attentive guide, but he also kept us engaged with Q and A and *a lot* of information about the local wine industry. He was creative and insightful, not to mention entertaining! We'd do another tour with Mick to check out different vineyards.

This tour is one you do not want to miss. The tour guide/sommelier, Mick, is originally from a California, so you won’t have to worry about his English. He is super knowledgeable, knows everyone at all the best spots, and most of all is very passionate about what he does. Do yourself a favor and GO!!

What a way to start a trip to Chile, or indeed South America. From meeting first thing on a Friday morning through to the end of the day Mick was an absolute gem. Not only keen on the subject matter but well versed on the subtler details of the wine production process. This was definitely one of the highlights of my trip, and I'd highly recommend spending time with Mick enjoying the Chilean countryside and trying out the cracking local wine!

Excellent guide, four contrasting wineries and an interesting selection of wines - the day lived up to expectations I every way

This was amazing. We don't usually do guided tours, but boy, did we get this one right. Our guide Mike is an awesome guy who really knows his wines and the Chilean wine scene, so he provided a lot of great information on a very accessible manner. He was also very helpful when assisting us to create the script for the tour, which ended up being perfect. Everything went well and right on time. Considering the distances that we covered on this one, the tour was really not expensive at all. On the contrary, great value. I'd not hesitate to do that again to other wineries. In fact, I hope I will.

A great day trip from Santiago with the very passionate and knowledgeable Mick as tour guide to enjoy some wonderful Chilean wines. A really enjoyable way of learning more and trying some Chilean wines.

I've done a lot of winery tours over the years but this was probably the best of the bunch. Mick, our guide, was very knowledgeable about wine and about the area we visited. Having a small group meant that we all had ample opportunities for questions, discussion and special requests. And the three wineries that Mick selected for the tour gave us a great overview of three very different types of wineries, from small family-operated to large multifaceted operations. Highly recommended.

Mick was a very knowledgeable and personable guide. We enjoyed the wineries he picked out, which included tours and tasting at Perez Cruz and Concha Y Tero and a tasting at Santa Rita all included in the fee. He also made a lunch reservation for us at Concha Y Tero. Lunch was not included in the fee but we had a wide variety of food to choose from as well as all the Conch Y Tero wines by the glass. We dined on the patio and very much enjoyed it. Perez Cruz, a boutique winery was our favorite and we purchased a bottle of their Limited Edition Carmenere. At all the wineries there was no push from them or Mick to purchase. We appreciated that Mick also brought along his wine tasting guide, waters and snacks. Mick picked us up at 10am and had us back a little before 6pm, so it is a full day.

This tour was fantastic and just as I’d hoped. Our guide was knowledgeable, friendly and engaging. There was a nice surprise at the end of the tour, it really added a personal touch. The group also wasn’t too big - no coach just a mini van. Highly recommend.

This was an exceptional tour. Mick Jackson our guide was friendly and knowledgeable.He took us to four wineries each offering something unusual and interesting from organic farming with chickens and llamas to a-beautiful lakeside picnic area where we snacked on cheeses with regional wines. Lunch was at a spectacular villa with extraordinary views. We even got to keep the lakeside wine. This was a very special day and well worth the cost. Highly recommend.

My first time in Chile. Mick was a great guide. He put together an itinerary that included the big vineyards in Maipo along with some smaller ones. Tours were interesting and tastings were varied. Got a good feel for Maipo. Thanks again Mick!

We had a great time with Mick! He was knowledgeable, fun, and easy to talk to. He customized our tour schedule to our interests, and made us feel like we really got a great deal. We were expecting a small group tour perhaps 6-8 people, but it ended up being just the two of us for most of the day we joined with one other tour group at one winery. Mick gave us some great recommendations for the rest of our trip, as well.
