Simple and fun way to visit Valparaiso
, Jul 2019
We had an excellent guide with Daniel who managed to fill us with pertinent facts and stories about Chile, Santiago, and Valparaiso. The wine tasting at Verremont vineyards exceeded our expectations with the tour and organic wines. Our primary purpose was to visit La Sebastiana, the home of Pablo Neruda, and that was amazing. It was a good day, and we felt well taken care of.
This is the by far the worst tour I've been on. You get into a bus with 20 people half speaking Spanish and half speaking English with only ONE GUIDE. Semi private tours cost HALF as much. If the tour was good, I wouldn't complain, but it's not. It's a typical hop on hop off type of tour. Guide is there to force you on the schedule. We walked around Valparaiso with no explanations on art work. He mentioned 1 or 2 and the rest of the time was about how many buildings/people there are and pointing out old dilapidated buildings that are literally in ruins. No one goes to Valparaiso to look at that. We passed by free tour guides along the way and they were a lot more engaging and detailed in explanations. Wish I had booked a semi private cost for half the cost or transfer only and utilized free tour. I would have had a better experience. Also, the tour description is a bait and switch. It said we will stop at vina del mar for lunch, but it never happened. We were forced to go to a tourist trap that tour company drop off people in droves. There were no other restaurant to eat at besides this tourist trap. I tried to complain to the tour company directly, but they said there's nothing they can do. Btw viator also charges more than the tour company and the lowest price guarantee is a joke basically. Viator is supposedly looking at the case, but I have little faith. I might have to file charge back through my credit card. Never using viator again. Go with local tour recommended by your hotel concierge.
What an amazing Vineyard! Our guide explained everything about the wine industry in Santiago and showed us the more unique aspects of Emiliana that just blew my mind. The most unexpected surprise was running into Alpacas on the property! The wine itself was outstanding and the best part about the tour is how close you are to Santiago.
This was a great day! It was definitely worth the money spent. The Emiliana Tour was incredible and the wine was SO delicious. Valpariso is beautiful and our day also included a tour of the Casa de Pablo Neruda which I didn't know was included! You don't stop in Vina del Mar if you are looking for that. Between hotel pickup and hotel drop off, we were out about 12 hours. Our tour guide, Jennifer, and our drive, Alejandro were amazing. The tour was balanced with both English and Spanish. Highlight recommend!
