We had a great day trip with our guide Claudio. We learned a lot and got to see a lot for the short amount of time spent in Valparaiso and Vina Del Mar. Claudio was very knowledgeable of the area and kept giving us bits of history which I enjoyed as I love history. I was happy we were able to visit Pablo Neruda's house in Valparaiso, we got there just before the crowd starting coming. We also had a chance to ride a finicular which is definitely a must. The weather was gloomy so we did not enjoy much time on the beach of Vina del Mar but the lunch recommendation there was great. We loved our lunch at Chez Gerald. If you are pressed for time, I'd recommend this tour to get to know Valparaiso and Vina Del Mar. Another perk is the stop at a vineyard on the ride from Santiago to Valaparaiso. Wine was good and our guide took great pictures.
Alberto was a very good and informative guide with a passion for Chilli.
We had one other couple on our tour from the UK which helped make the day enjoyable.
This was a wonderful introduction to some of the "wine valleys" and to the Pacific coast! Our guide Daniel looked after everything very well and was very knowledgeable about our stops and the area of our tour, including a wonderful lunch stop! Our driver Marlene was excellent as well. Gracias!
The tour was more comprehensive than we expected.
The driver Marco and guide Christian were both very knowledgable and helpful.
It was great that we had the car to ourselves and went up into the hills for a magnificent view over the highway, toll roads and vineyards and surrounding hills.
Excellent trip with a very friendly driver and a tour guide that went to great depth explaining each point of the tour. Highly recommend this tour for anyone on a short visit to Santiago.
Carol and Rodrigo our tour guide and driver were AMAZING!! It turned out that we were the only ones in the tour, so we go it privately - BONUS! and were able to completely customize to whatever we wanted to do / see. We never felt rushed or like we missed anything.
Carol has vast knowledge on the history of both towns and on the architecture of Valparaiso as well as Neruda. The highlight of the tour is to just walk around Valparaiso and admire the architecture and art that's everywhere.
A must do in Chile!
Interesting venues. Knowlegable guide with personal experience Valparaiso.
I loved our tour. We are from the USA but there were people from Brazil, Argentina and Venezuela. It was fun to meet people from all over. Our guide had to speak English, Spanish and Portuguese. Jaime did a great job. We saw a lot of things and had an amazing lunch overlooking the ocean. I would recommend this tour.
Our private guide brought us to spots where tourists don't usually go. A great day out of Santiago and very informative.
Excellent tour enjoyed very much would maybe suggest time at the naval museum.
The two cities are a mandatory stop for everyone going to Santiago. Our tour guide Fredy was very attentious, and we accomplished everything on our wishlist for the trip and more!
O passeio foi bastante agradável, o guia Luis nos conduziu de forma excelente, nos mostrando todos os pontos e tirando todas as nossas dúvidas, mesmo com a nossa dificuldade em se comunicar em espanhol. Muito bom!
Thank you for a really good experience. From the moment we were picked up at our hotel, we enjoyed being treated as special. Our Guide was professional and very knowledgeable and we had a great day. We would recommend the tour to anyone wanting a good value for money experience.
Well worth doing. Not enough time over on the coast to see everything. Excellent guide.
