This tour is a great bargain. The city tour took us to all of the important places making it easy to select those we wanted to see more of later. The Valparaiso Vina del Mar trip is a must do. In Vina del Mar we had lunch at a great seafood restaurant which was exactly what we expected to do there.
The first day was a short day only 3 hrs with highlights of Santiago. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and spoke very good English. We only had 15 minutes at the Cerro Santa Lucia so we couldn't climb to the very top were the views are supposed to be very beautiful. How ever we were not that disappointed since we had gone the day before on our own to the Cerro San Cristobal were you can also have great views of the city. I believe they should include this beautiful park in the highlights of the city it was not we were told about this park by the concierge of our hotel since it was within waking distance of the Sheraton Hotel.
On the second day it was a much longer day since we went to Valparaiso and Viña Del Mar. That trip is long but worth it. It is on Road 68 which has incredible views of 3 different valleys with different resources for the area. One was agricultural were they grow Olives, sunflowers to make oils to name a few, another has the wineries and the third is cooper and Livestock. Valparaiso is a port town with a lot of graffiti, and very narrow and steep streets. They also took us to a harbor were you can see sea lions. Viña Del Mar however is very pretty clean and wealthy resort city. We stop and had lunch price not included in the fee at a very busy but very good restaurant right on the bay great view called Castillo Del Mar. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and spoke several languages so he did the tour speaking English and then Portuguese since we had a couple with us that were from Brasil. Overall I think the 2 day tour gave us what we wanted and we were not disappointed.

Both tours were interesting and informative and our drivers and guides great. We were lucky to see the changing of the guards on our city tour which was very entertaining.
The City tour was nice. The guide was nice and informative. There was not a lot to see Even though Santiago was established several hundred years ago, it's surprisingly that the city is pretty modern, even in the older parts of town, not like European cities, but we did like Santiago and would go back
Vina del mar was worth going to! City sightseeing tour was a lot of walking and not too much to see.Guide spoke English when needed but spent day talking in Spanish toSpanish speaking tour members.Not a problem as I understand Spanish well, however Spanish speakers should have booked tour in Spanish
We thoroughly enjoyed our two tours. Rodrigo guide and Ignacio driver were both very friendly and helpful and went out of their way to make our tours memorable and very enjoyable. Their knowledge of the history and culture of Santiago and the region was fantastic. Highlights were the changing of the guard at the President's Palace, the beautiful cathedral, climbing St Lucia hill and the lovely seafood lunch at Vina del Mar. Great, thanks
The trip was nice.. and was a good summary of all three places. I really felt the santiago city tour was rushed. The guide just took us around for about 1.5 hrs. The tour start timing was 8 am but they never came till 9 and then by 10:30 we had left for Vina del mar. The lunch at the restaurant was a terrible experience with the waiting staff at absolutely dont care attitude. I also feel that they charged too much for the trip and i am not sure if the trip was worth 188 per person!
We split this trip in two, wise move. We did the city tour first. That was really good, Our guide Rodrego was fun and knowledgeable, our driver Guilermo was excellant as well, very safe. We managed to pack a lot in including changing of the guard at the Palace.This was with another British couple.The second day was Valparaiso with Ignacio and Roberto.This lasted 10.5 hours. We had two Argentineans and two Brazillains, which meant that everything said had to be repeated three times by Roberto, we don't speak Spanish or Portugese and the other people said they did not speak English, bad move. Nobody mixed, the trip became extremely boring, and tiring particularly as two people never kept to time and on a mini-bus thats quite important. we did see,some interesting sites, but we just found it tedious, especially when the driver got last in Vina Del Mar. Roberto tried his best
I was disappointed to learn that this same trip was provided by other local groups for half the price! I should have waited to make arrangements after I arrived in Santiago.
I was picked up an hour late...the guide tended to talk in Spanish to a group of Columbians. Guide did not elaborate enough on each of the places visited. I have used Viator before and was very impressed with the quality of the tour, not this time.
