Our guide Jaime is wonderful and attentive. This is a great value tour. The only thing I wish is we could spend a little more time in Valparaiso, everything else is great.
This was a very pleasant day and the guide led us to a restaurant with a wonderful view in Valparaiso lunch at own cost. The funicular ride promised to be very interesting but after waiting for quite a while for our turn, we got in and traveled about 40 metres when it stopped. Eventually the funicular returned to its starting point and we were let out. It broke and was subsequently shut down for the day. I would have loved to spend more time exploring the street art.
I've traveled around the world and have had opportunities to do various activities and excursions, and by far this was one of the best experiences I had. Jaime facebook...jaime chilevivo tours seamlessly went from Spanish, Portuguese, and English for our small group of 6. He provided a wonderful history of Chile and was able to get us to the front of lines and offer to take the endless pictures tourists want. Also, there was not any stress on when and where we would be picked up.....in fact he was early! And the night before provided us with confirmation so we could easily. Our driver was awesome too and both deserve big tips and business. Highly recommend for any tour Jaime provides!
Love this tour. Tour guide was very pleasant and knowledgeable! The cities of Valparaiso and Vina del Mar were beautiful! Would love to visit Chile again and just stay in that area.
Was interesting to go up in the hills of Valparaiso, and see Vina Del Mar. Good day trip to get out of the city.
A great visit with a great guide tour. It was bad that it was cloudy and close the place where it is the festival. It worth that you can request before offer the places. The car arrive 30 minutes later.
We had an excellent guide. However, 90 of the tourists were Spanish speakers and we English speakers got less information. Valparaiso and Vina de Mar are well with visiting. Both are cities with rich histories and many fascinating places where we toured on foot.
We recommend this tour.
Good price, good, friendly, well-informed guide taking the customers interest into account during the tour. Well-planned tour with good restaurant and even good places for toilet breaks during the trip. Only thing negative was that the tour did not include time to actually enter the Neruda museum which is worth doing.
Very nice and relaxing day trip and we were able to see many parts both cities. The tour guide was very friendly and helpful. Everyone should do this at least once.
Valpariso is not a beautiful city, in fact it is pretty dismal. Our driver was more interested in his telephone calls and messaging than driving, and our guide had a problem with three Spanish speaking guests and two English speaking.. The restaurant picked for lunch was beautiful and with a wonderful view, but the prices were outrageous. Would have preferred a less pricey place. Overall knowing what I know now, I would not take this trip again with this tour operatior.
Quite good but being the only English speaking on the bus we found there was a lot more commentary in Spanish. Our guide was nice but had difficulty making clear explanations in English.
A pretty good tour. Tour guide was awesome. It would have been good to stop in the old central part of Valparaiso however if parking was possible. Vina Del Mar wasn't all that great but Valparaiso certainly made up for it.
We really didn and #39;t enjoy the tour. The driving time to and from our hotel for the round trip was almost 6 hours which was far longer than expected. We also felt it wasn and #39;t really a guided tour more of a driving tour were the guide let you to wonder every so often. Not recommended.
The weather didn't help it was cloudy and cold all day even thought we were there during the summer. But more importantly our tour guide did not do a good job. He drove us around and we had to do any exploring on our own without his assistance or presence. I have heard that other tour guides are better and will actually walk around with you.
Do not hire the RutaChile. The visita started well, although the drivers commited some traffic infractions. However, the guide was stopped for screening by police and at end of the day they left us on Center of Santiago, saying their car was defective. We need to find our way to hote by ourselves.
