Tour guide Alex was great!!! Very knowledgeable. Beautiful landscape!
Our guide was Carol and she did an amazing tour with us. She was on time, friendly, and her English was perfect. She answered all of our questions and provided helpful information. We enjoyed all of the sights and the lunch location was spectacular. The winery stop was better than I had imagined and was glad that we had booked it. Our trip to the market was fun and with Carol's assistance we were able to buy souvenirs. Our travel group all agreed that this was fabulous. Everything about this day was special and our tour guide was extra special.
Wonderful day with interesting, knowledgeable guide. Highly recommend!
Great tour excellent guide. We were the only 2 on the tour . We would have preferred more time in Valparaiso instead of Vina Del Mar
Great tour - spend more time in Valparaiso then in Vina del Mar as it's far more interesting.
We had a wonderful day in Valparaiso with our guide Roberto and driver Miguel and would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to explore Valparaiso like a local, walking the tiny alleys, riding the elevators and trolley buses, boating in an open boat and eating the local dishes.
Perfect! We were picked up as promised at our hotel on time in a new SUV for a private and personalized tour. The additional winery stop was wonderful - very beautiful organic bodega. Our driver (Alex) was informative and charming. The Neruda destinations and lunch restaurant outstanding.
Our guide Tanya made this private tour outstanding. She had our driver take every road in Valparaiso up and down hills, have him stop wherever and have us get out and walk and wind up meeting the driver somewhere else. Got us into the museum and knew to do it before a long queuing line appeared as my wife and I finished our tour of it. Stopped for a very nice lunch that did not break the bank. Helped my wife buy a ring from a trusted store in Vina Del Mar. Only letdown was Vina Del Mar that was nice to drive through but had not much to offer. I would recommend this tour over a group tour for a better experience.
Sergio was a very good guide - very knowledgeable and helpful.
Excellent tour, driver was friendly and the guide was very pleasant, extremely knowledgeable and made sure we were comfortable and saw everything we wanted to see. We were very pleased.
Lucky to have private tour with a wonderful tour guide Tanya. She made everything perfect for us.
Tour was very insteresting. Our guide did a really great job guiding us in the history of Vaparaíso with a very nice walk tour in the historical center. Though it was not a tour for any person elderly and kids would have difficulty me and my mom managed to complete it and it was worth. What we missed was a stop for a lunch. Could be a quick stop in a buffet, for only 30 minurtes to seat in a restaurant, drink, eat and breath. We managed to eat an empada in the historical center which was very nice too, but would have been good to have had lunch.
Our tour guide Jaime was one of the best we have had on our many excursions/tours.
He was knowledgeable, pleasant, and went the extra mile. We learned much about Chile
and our discussions with Jaime about Pablo Neruda
Our guide Ceasar spoke excellent English. He was well informed and very pleasant.
The walking tour was interesting and the harbor tour gave good perspective of the hills of Valparaiso.
Emma our driver was very competent.
Valparaiso part of tour was well worth the drive.
What a great day with our Tour Guide Carol and driver Rodrigo.
Carol is an extremely pleasant, knowledgeable, courteous professional that was a pleasure to be with.
Starting in Santiago, we stopped at a winery along the way to Vina De Mar.
It was also the time of a Chicha festival in Curacavi where we stopped and sampled this really tasty drink.
Stopping in Vina Del Mar, we toured the city on foot, and then had a great lunch in a restaurant that overlooked the sea.
Spending the remainder of the day in Valparaiso was just fantastic.
Pablo Naruda's house, incredible Graffiti, old winding streets, old buildings, buildings built within buildings, incredible sites, smells and sounds.
Thank goodness Carol was our guide as we believe that it is probably very easy to get lost in this great old winding city.
Thank you to Carol and our safe driver Rodrigo for a very memorable day!
To start, the confirmation email said 9:30, but the tour operator arrived at 9am, causing us to have to rush through breakfast which was important to eat for a full day tour!. They stopped at a little gas station halfway for us to relieve ourselves, as well as a wine outlet on the way to Valparaiso--both good additions. However, we spent pretty much all day staring at the facades of buildings--I'm a history person, and I found it disorganized and poorly executed. The harbor cruise was nice we saw several sea lions!. We didn't eat lunch until 5pm and not at the restaurant specified in the description, and completely missed the beer portion. Valparaiso seemed like a lovely place, but we were not thrilled with this tour. Felt absolutely haphazard and like I didn't come away actually learning much about the city--just endlessly staring at buildings from 1890 to 1920. Wished we could have at least gone INTO one of the buildings--but seriously, the furthest we went was to stand in bank and hotel lobbies and stare at architecture. The day also stretched much longer than expected--the ten hour tour went from 9am to 8pm. Not our favorite tour.
Terrific tour - we managed to walk around one of he old areas in Valporaiso, Have lunch at Isla Negra as well as see the two homes of Pablo Neruda. The Pablo Neruda home in Isla Negra was the real highlight for us - the setting is fabulous and the house a reflection of his life and interests.
Jaime was great tour guide and excellent driver - there were just two of us on the tour and we had a great day.
Ricardo was a great guide and provided terrific insights and information. His recommendation for lunch was fantastic.
This tour certainly kept us busy! From a car ride very comfortable, Sebastien was a great driver to a trolley ride paid for by our guide, to a boat ride again, arranged by the guide to coffee guide, to a funicular ride and then a tour of the Valparaiso hills and a stop at Neruda's house. The guide was extremely knowledgeable.
This is the perfect way to see Valparaiso when the focus of your trip is elsewhere in Chile. It is a delightful city, not to be missed, and you feel that you have truly been exposed to it when the day trip is over. Our guide, Daniel, was just wonderful...an absolutely enjoyable personality. As well, he lived in Valparaiso in the past, so he does, indeed, know the city. It was a well planned and well executed trip. I know that you will be pleased, as well.
This tour was exellent. The wines at the organic wineyard were excellent. We had time to visit Pablo Neruda's houses in and out at our leisure, no hurry! We had lunch at an excellent restaurant Jaime recomended; not a tourist trap in Isla Negra. Pamela and Jaime were just great.
