Our guide was Carol and she did an amazing tour with us. She was on time, friendly, and her English was perfect. She answered all of our questions and provided helpful information. We enjoyed all of the sights and the lunch location was spectacular. The winery stop was better than I had imagined and was glad that we had booked it. Our trip to the market was fun and with Carol's assistance we were able to buy souvenirs. Our travel group all agreed that this was fabulous. Everything about this day was special and our tour guide was extra special.

Our guide Tanya made this private tour outstanding. She had our driver take every road in Valparaiso up and down hills, have him stop wherever and have us get out and walk and wind up meeting the driver somewhere else. Got us into the museum and knew to do it before a long queuing line appeared as my wife and I finished our tour of it. Stopped for a very nice lunch that did not break the bank. Helped my wife buy a ring from a trusted store in Vina Del Mar. Only letdown was Vina Del Mar that was nice to drive through but had not much to offer. I would recommend this tour over a group tour for a better experience.

What a great day with our Tour Guide Carol and driver Rodrigo.
Carol is an extremely pleasant, knowledgeable, courteous professional that was a pleasure to be with.
Starting in Santiago, we stopped at a winery along the way to Vina De Mar.
It was also the time of a Chicha festival in Curacavi where we stopped and sampled this really tasty drink.
Stopping in Vina Del Mar, we toured the city on foot, and then had a great lunch in a restaurant that overlooked the sea.
Spending the remainder of the day in Valparaiso was just fantastic.
Pablo Naruda's house, incredible Graffiti, old winding streets, old buildings, buildings built within buildings, incredible sites, smells and sounds.
Thank goodness Carol was our guide as we believe that it is probably very easy to get lost in this great old winding city.
Thank you to Carol and our safe driver Rodrigo for a very memorable day!

Excellent tour guide. Very good overview of the ride from Santiago to Viña del Mar and Valparaiso. She took us beyond the normal touristy stuff and showed us things that we would never found on our own.

The tour guide was so friendly and spoke great English. She and the driver accommodated us in every way, including walking our baggage down to the hotel because the street had been blocked off. We tried to help but they wouldn't let us. It was an excellent tour and experience.
