Awesome! Really informative and learned a TON about the economic history of Chile. Our guide was super knowledgeable. Signed up for the group tour but it ended up being just us, and we got a great private tour.

Fran Pardo is the very best tour guide. She had outstanding knowledge of these cities and provided a first rate experience for us including lunch at a place with a great view. Fran should get a raise - she is really an outstanding guide.

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.

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!

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.

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!

-We loved our trip to Vina Del Mar and Valparaiso.
Our guide (Pablo) was delightful, giving us much information about the region and it´s people.
He gave us plenty of time to look at various attractions. The restaurant he took us to, (original Chilean food) was delicious.
I would certainly advise taking this trip. Janice and Terry,

We Had a great time. Our guide, Pablo, was knowledgeable and very accommodating. We did this tour on May 1, which is labour day in Chile and many things were closed or restrained because of the manifestations, but Pablo managed to show us the history and all the important sights in these curious places. Very recommended !

The guide was extremely knowledgeable about the Valparaiso and Vina Del Mar areas. We had a group consisting of Spaniash speaking, Portuguese speaking and English speaking people. The guide effectively communicated all points of interest to all of us.

Vina Del Mar was especially beautiful. We stopped at a wonderful restaurant by the sea for lunch and fellowship.

We would definitely recommend this day trip.
