Small group tour that allowed us to experience the highlights of the city. Had a terrific seafood lunch overlooking the bay, as recommended by our guide. Winery on the way home topped it off nicely. Great attention to detail. Also gave us great tips for our stay in Santiago. Highly recommend this company.
Good trip and Maurice? Was an excellent guide
An absolutely fabulous trip, not to be missed.
I vacationed with my adult son in Santiago, Chile for 10 days in September. On our booked day to tour Valparaiso and Vina del Mar, Vanessa greeted us at 9:00 am and were whisked away for a day long adventure. Vanessa was warm, friendly and extremely knowledgeable. Along with learning about the history of the neighbourhoods of Santiago as we drove out of the city toward our destination, we were treated to lively conversation, which included politics. Valparaiso was very lively and colourful. Our history lesson continued while we took in the sites and sounds. We continued on to Vina del Mar, where my son and I enjoyed a mouth-watering lunch. Waves crashed on the rocks below our seaside window, while pelicans, sea lions and albatross congregated at the water's edge. Both my son and I HIGHLY recommend this tour and Vanessa. It was well worth it and was one of the highlights of our vacation. Thank you!
Very good tour,guide was very efficient, asked what our needs were and he tried to accoma die them which he did very well. His driving was excellent and was knowledge able on his tour,
Excellent tour with a very good driver/guide who was able to tailor this trip to suit us. Great area to visit.
Easy and fun with knowledgeable guide. Could have used a bit more time on our own to explore.
I couldn't recommend this tour highly enough. Our guide was Emanuel from Stamps Tours, and nothing was too much trouble. He was prompt, extremely interesting and informative, as well as being very helpful taking photographs. I accidently got some paint on my coat and straightaway he set about solving the situation. We never felt rushed, and thoroughly enjoyed exploring Valparaiso which is a fascinating place to visit. The recommended lunch stop was an excellent choice and we even had time for ice creams on the beach! We stopped at the vineyard on the return and again, never felt we had to rush. I would not hesitate to recommend Emanuel and Stamps Tours to anyone planning a visit to Santiago.
Excellent, knowledgeable guide Emmanuel. Very punctual. Good choice of sites. Flexible as to how many stops to make in each city.
Vanessa was our tour guide for the day. From the moment we boarded her car, we knew we were going to have a good time. You immediately get a sense of her passion of Santiago, Chile. We were not at all disappointed. She went at a great pace and we didnt feel like she was clock watching. She gave us a brief tour as we exited Santiago for our main destinations: Veramonte Winery for wine tasting amazing and beautiful views, the sites of Vina Del Mar, lunch in an old castle with a beachfront view at Castillo Del Mar, and viewing the street art and local artist shops at Valparaíso. It was a long day, BUT well worth it. I believe we saw a high level of the city and neighboring areas in 10 hours versus if we planned it ourselves. She showed us a ton of fantastic places that we could have easily missed or wouldnt have ventured out to do on our own. This tour is family owned so you feel the extra attention to detail and personal touches. Well worth the money. We would totally book another tour through this company. And ask for Vanessa!
