Our driver was Franciso and our guide Laurina. Both were friendly and knowledgeable I wouldnt hesitate to recommend this tour. We were able to tailor the time we spent in places, miss some completely and they were totally accommodating. Before going to Santiago so many people said you must go to Vina-Del-Mar and Valparaiso and the day did not disappoint. Valparaiso has interesting, brightly coloured houses, the port, amazing murals and it was an interesting place to visit. We had lunch in Vina-Del-Mar overlooking the ocean and whilst it was good to see the town, it may not have stood out for me, except there was a Moai, which was a complete surprise. Bucket list item check! Great day.

We were delighted that on the very next day of the Santiago City tour on 11 April 2014,Gladys Riquelme and Adolpho were again to be our guide and driver.

Needless to say,the day passed off smoothly as we were introduced to the delights of Valparaiso,Vina del Mar and the beautiful surrounding countryside,mountain ranges and ofcourse,the blue Pacific Ocean !

Please pass on our personal thanks to Gladys and Adolpho acting on behalf of VIATOR, who made the day very enjoyable for both of us.

Much better than we had expected. Sandra, our guide, and Hernan, our driver were both very good, and did all that they could to make our trip memorable. Sandra was very knowledgeable and helpful. Hernan was most cooperative.

Gladys was superb, an excellent guide who knew her cities and Chilean history. I learned a tremendous amount about Chile, Santiago, the Wine Country and Valparaiso during my tours. Gladys was very accommodating, cheerful and knowledgable. You're lucky to have Gladys working for you!

Great day trip from Santiago! Valparaiso and Vina del Mar are a must see when in Chile - beautiful and unique in their own ways! Guide was great and stopping at a winery was an added bonus!

We spent a lovely day touring from Santiago with Juan. The private tour was definitely worth the extra charge- it is nice to be able to spend a few extra moments here, or less at another. I wish I knew the name of the restaurant we visited in Vina del Mar- it was the best meal I had in Chile!

This tour was a highlight of our stay in Santiago. The driver and tour guide were very attentive to our interests and needs; they were flexible and responsive; and when we got stuck in slow moving traffic at Vina Del Mar, they did not expect us to pay any more for their longer day. The car was roomy and comfortable for the four of us.

Our guide was a native of Valparaiso and had a deep understanding of its history. She was personally delightful.

We would definitely encourage any of our friends to take this private tour.

A super tour. Our guide Miriam was fantastic and her enthusiasm for everything on the itinerary did not wane throughout the whole day. I would highly recommend this tour.

We thoroughly enjoyed the trip to Valparaiso, the winery (surprise add on), and Vina Del Mar. The guide (Marcella) was very knowledgeable along with a safe and cordial driver. They accommodated our preferences and didn't shortcut any part of the tour. High recommended.

Francisco and Carlos were wonderful- informative, polite and prompt. Although the weather was not the best, we had a thoroughly enjoyable time. Francisco kept the right balance between historical perspectives and just fun. Thanks again.

Well planned out and a great way to experience some great things about Chile beyond Santiago in a short period of time. The tour guide was top notch and food was incredible!
