“So excellent that's even hard to describe”. We took the Vines, Bikes and Wines tour on August 4th 2010 and couldn't be more satisfied! Andres sent me an email as soon as I contact him on their website with a few tips for the weather (very cold winter this year) and already gave a great impression of cordiality and kindness, which we could see in person later. When we met in Santiago, he took us from our hotel in the morning to Pirque, where we did the Viña Concha y Toro tour, largest wine producer in Chile/world... it wasn't as we expected - and I'm not going into details since it's another attraction -, but Andres knew what he was doing. After a quick - and great - picnic we started biking around vines at Pirque area, which has perfect surroundings for that: Andes as landscape, wines everywhere, plain terrains, asphalt with little - if none - local traffic, and of course, an excellent guide as Andres (assisted by Isabel), which demonstrated extensive knowledge in wine making process, local culture and history. After that, we visited the smaller Viña William Fèvre literally by bike, going in between grape plantations. It's a pity that wasn't many fruits - harvest season is around march -, but as Andres wisely said, "every season has it's beauty as part of the whole process"... process that we saw entirely on this viña with rich details. Then the tour ended with a delicious home made lunch prepared by Inês, who wasn't at the time but surely spent a lot of dedication into preparations. As we talked at lunch, we told them it was our first day out on Chile, so Andres gave us a lot of great tips of what to do, see and try on Santiago... and we also found out that everything the team does is because they love what they're doing, so that's why everything they offer is the best you can get around. Highly recommended!

We did 2 bike tours with Paseos, and both were spectacular. The food is homemade, the wine is top of the line, the bikes are safe, (they even give you a bandana for under your helmet, if you would prefer ).You will see things you would not see... if you weren´´t with them... breathtaking!!! and your hosts will guaranteed be 2 (or 3) of the most welcoming and warm people. Highly recommend, if you are coming from far, to start your stay with Paseos!!!

We chose the Vines, Bikes and Wines tour because it included a visit and tasting at a boutique winery (William Fevre) as well as Concha y Toro - Chile's largest. As enjoyable as the wineries were, Andrés, Inés and their team of guides really made the day special. Everything was well organized and presented with great warmth and enthusiasm. We had a fantastic day and highly recommend both the company and the tour for a great day.

A fantastic trip which combines tours of contrasting vineyards, the world renowned Concho y Toro and William Fevre, a much more local and smaller operation, with gentle cycling around the area. The whole experience culminates in a veritable feast of delicious food under a shaded umbrella of vines, replete with ripe (and tasty) grapes! However the highlight of the whole day is the personalised attention of Andres and Carola who shared their knowledge and ensured we had a great trip. Really well-planned and with super attention to detail - we look forward to repeating this when our friends come to visit!
