Vina Del Mar and Valparaiso Day Trip from Santiago

Santiago, Chile

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

If you only have one day to see the coast from Santiago, this is a good alternative. Not too crowded and hits all the high spots. Tour guide Freddie was friendly and accommodative, but not too informative.

One huge downside is that Viator requires the purchase of 2 adult tickets, even if only one is travelling. This makes no sense if they wish to capture the travelling on business market.

El Morado Hiking Tour with Transport from Santiago

Santiago, Chile

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

This is NOT an easy hike. It is 16km, 8km up. One bottle of water is not enough. There is no shade at all. The rocks are unstable; even hiking sneakers strain the legs. My comments are made from the perspective of someone in very good shape.

The scenary is beautiful; more of an attraction than the destination (the glacier). The other hikers very friendly. The guide nice and flexible, but short on information.

One huge downside is that Viator requires the purchase of 2 adult tickets, even if only one is travelling. This makes no sense if they wish to capture the travelling on business market. Plus Viator subcontracts this out. Go direct. It's cheaper.

My Review

If you have limited time to see Santiago, this is a useful trip. Frankly, there is not much to see in Santiago, so three hours is enough. It will certainly highlight the options for return visits if something peaks your interest. Avoid Mondays, all museums are closed.

Panoramic Tokyo Day Tour - Meiji Shrine, Asakusa Temple and Tokyo Bay Cruise

Tokyo, Japan

My Review

Excellent guide, on-time, efficient trip to see the key sights in Tokyo if you're short time or don't wish to navigate the city on your own. The only thing that could have been better would be replacing the visit to the man made island with something else like Tokyo Tower.
