Tour description provided by Viator

The “Edén de los Andes”, Mendoza city and its beautiful surrounding mountains. Contemplate the majesty of Aconcagua Mountain at almost 7000 meters high, making it the highest peak in America. Marvel at the ingenious irrigation system established by Captain Don Pedro del Castillo who founded the city in 1561. This system transports water from Mendoza River to fields of maize, beans and pumpkin, converting the place into the oasis that it is today.
Day 1 When arriving at El Plumerillo airport, we will take you to the Hotel. In the afternoon, we will go into Mendoza city to visit its attractions. Day 2 Come  with  us  and  experience  the  immensity  of  the  Andes  range,  be  amazed  by  the outstanding panoramic views. Walk along the Panamericana route through places of serene beauty such as Potrerillos and Uspallata. We then arrive at Puente del Inca with its fascinating geological shapes and thermal springs.
