Looking for a car and driver for wine tour and Drive to Santiago

by travelm8s

We are coming to Mendoza in November (2 people)and wish to arrange for a private tour of the wineries of the region. We are in the area for 3 nights. Any recommendations would be appreicated (individuals our tour companies). Also, we wish to make an arrangement with a car and driver for a one-way drive to Santiago. I am a photographer and would want to make various stops along the way. Thank you in advance, we can hardly wait to arrive to Argentina.

When I went to Argentina I had the concierge where I was staying make all the arrangements. Do you know where you will stay, and do you have an email or a phone to contact them?

Personally I think Ampora is the best available, http://www.mendozawinetours.com/

Do you have an idea of which wineries you would like to visit? There are so many good ones and with only a couple of days you might have some tough decisions.

You should not have any problems in hiring a remise to take you to Santiago. I would contact the Mendoza Tourism Office for recommendations of reliable car and drivers, their email is infoturismo@mendoza.gov.ar

You need to book winery visits in Mendoza, you can't just rock up to the gate and expect to be let in. If your names not on the list, the gate stays shut. Most have set visiting times for a tour. Sensibly, 3 tours in a day is enough and once you've toured through one you've got a pretty good idea of the process so you might want to consider wineries that offer something a bit different. Also the wineries are mostly in the Maipu and Lujan de Cuyo area, about 30km outside Mendoza itself and very spread out so you need to choose ones that are reasonably close together. Tapiz takes you on a horse and buggy ride through the vineyards. Ruca Malen has a short, quite casual tour and a fabulous tasting lunch in a pavilion set right down among the vines. Carmelo Patti is regarded as one of the best but you must speak Spanish to go one their tours which are conducted by Patti himself, one of the region's top oenologists.

You'll find more advice on the pages written about Mendoza by various members
http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/92cd3/1775f1/4/ is TheWanderingCamel's contribution and there are lots of others

As a photographer - keep your eyes peeled as you come down the mountain road on the Argentina side for the ad hoc shrines to folk hero-cum- local saint, El Gaucho Gil, and the colours of the mountains on that side are spectacular. It's a fabulous road trip - have a great time!

Travel Tips for Mendoza

Parque General San Martín

by andal13

This park is a beautiful and green place at South Mendoza; there are many interesting points in or near there: the zoo, the summer theatre, the Malvinas Argentinas soccer stadium. And there, you can take and open bus and go to the top of Cerro de la Gloria, where is a magnificent monument to General San Martín's gest, built by Uruguayan sculptor Ferrari.
(This monument is an allegory, and it is better if a guide explains its meaning.)
From the top of Cerro de la Gloria, you will enjoy a beautiful sight of Mendoza.

Este parque es un hermoso espacio verde situado al sur de Mendoza; hay varios puntos de interés en él o en sus alrededores: el zoológico, el teatro de verano, el estadio Malvinas Argentinas. Allí se puede tomar un bus abierto y subir hasta la cima del Cerro de la Gloria, en donde se encuentra el magnífico monumento a la gesta del General San Martín, creado por el escultor uruguayo Ferrari. Este monumento es una alegoría, y es mejor si un guía explica su significado. Desde el Cerro de la Gloria, se disfruta de una hermosa vista de Mendoza.

Kahuak - Horseback riding in stunning scenery

by Trekki

Around Mendoza, horseback riding is just thrilling ! There are several tour operators available, check either in your Hotel / Hostal, or in Mendoza's "Peatonal", where you can find a lot of agencies.
However - I did my horseback rides with Kahuak and it was thrilling !

The horseback ride (1 full day) took me south of Mendoza, into the pre-cordillera, into a stunning valley full of different and typical plants. A wonderful and serene place.
The horses are well trained and they seem even to realize the "riding experience" of the rider :-)
The usual gear you need for horseback riding - long pants and good boots.
Water and sun lotion.
They organize food and everything else for you - on a full day, you can enjoy fantastic asado :-)

And they pick you up from wherever you stay.

1 full day was 90 Pesos (december 2004 and january 2005), 110 Pesos in october 2005.

Eat well at Quinta Norte

by Gaspar&Floppy about Quinta Norte

It's a beautiful place on the corner of Mitre Ave. and Espejo Street in front of Independence Square. Great atmosphere, beautiful people, good music and what's more great food and prices! Ravioli with white sauce!

Bernardo O’Higgins park

by mindcrime

This is the park I walked through when I tried to visit Mendoza’s Museo Fundacional, very close to the weird museums with the snakes and frogs! :) (see my off the beaten path tips). Anyway, I liked it a lot walking through the trees (Mendoza’s streets are tree lined also) but the strange thing to see here was a bizarre playground with some weird shapes (see pic).
Hopefully, it was daylight when I was there because otherwise it would look like a scenery from a horror movie! There is also a fun park called City Boy but it was also empty but I guess noone wants to go there under that strong sun.

The park has the name of another famous commander (very common in Latin America). Bernardo O’Higgins (1778-1842) was the leader at the independence war against Spain (with San Martin) in Chile. That’s why in Chile there is a much bigger park that is called Parque Bernardo O’Higgins. Mendoza’s park is just a small one I walked through…

Museo Historico San Martin

by mindcrime

I didn't know about The San Martin's Historical Museum and to be honest I was tired of him after seeing so many squares, statues, and streets with his name :)

After a short walking at San Martin avenue (you see?) I saw the Alameda, a promenade with some nice trees and statues and close by was the San Martin’s library and museum. I said "let's give him one last chance!" and I went inside...

This was supposed to be his house but he never lived here. The museum is small but holds some interesting information about the life of the legendary liberator against Spain. A lot of artifacts, portraits, guns and other personal items and some signs with info (in Spanish and english) about his life
