About 3 years ago we went on this excursion with Juan and had an extraordinary experience because of the landscapes, the fauna, and Juan's passionate knowledge about the area. We were in Mendoza with friends and family and decided to make the same excursion with them. This was a great all day experience again. While some of the route was... More

I did a winery tour in Mendoza with Juan. Juan was an excellent guide! He used to work at a winery before himself, so he really understands all the process of making wine. He is very knowledgeable on each winery he has taken me, too. I can recommend his tour to anybody! Thank you for your winery tour!! I really... More

Juan was the perfect host! His Land Rover Defender is super cool, and his insight and friendly personality made for the perfect day of hiking. I would highly recommend him in all regards! Outstanding!

We had an amazing trip to a mountain top in the Andes with our really nice guide Juan. Even though it was only a one day trip we got to see a lot of the area and the view was fantastic. Juan has a lot of information about Mendoza and the mountains, and is a great company for a trip.... More

I went on the trekking trip with two of my friends and it was such a wonderful experience! To not be in a big group and being able to walk at our own pace gave us a much better tour in the mountains. The guide was so nice and made us feel really safe (he's got a first aid kit,... More

I agree with everything that's been said about Cultura Cernana and Juan Cruz. I booked a mountain tour w/ Juan Cruz in late November and it was the most memorable day of my Argentina trip. Our day started out w/ a roadside breakfast prepared by Juan Cruz where I also learned about the local plants. The Land Rover was sturdy... More

If you want to see amazing scenery in the Andes... wildlife, panoramas, ruggedly beautiful mountains... then take this tour with Juan Cruz. Take extra camera batteries and storage cards... the photo opps are one after another... and the views of all parts of the Andes, not just Aconcagua, are breathtaking. The Land Rover is comfortable and Juan Cruz is an... More

My husband and I took a 10 hour tour of the Andes with Juan Cruz in his Land Rover Defender and it was one of the highlights of our week long stay in Mendoza. Juan took us to scenic lookout points, provided historical, cultural and ecological insights and one of the tastiest lunch spots in Argentina. Juan was a friendly,... More
