What You Can Expect

Vina Del Mar and Valparaiso Day Trip from Santiago

Vina Del Mar and Valparaiso Day Trip from Santiago

After hotel pickup in Santiago, take the coastal road through the verdant valleys of Curacavi and Casablance; observe sprawling vineyards abundant with grapes as you draw closer to your destination. 
Arrive at the popular seaside spot of Vina del Mar and begin your cultural exploration alongside a guide. See the Gaming Casino, admire a traditional moai statue from Easter Island and inhale the fragrant air of the beautiful central park. 
Then, return to the minivan and venture to the port of Valparaiso. Laden with colorful murals and brightly-painted houses, observe the 43 hills the town tumbles over, riding steep funiculars to admire panoramic vistas of the ocean. Stroll the streets of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed site before visiting the Pablo Neruda Museum, home to the poet’s sea-inspired collections. 
When your exploration concludes, return to the minivan and sit back during the smooth journey back to your Santiago hotel.

Awesome! Really informative and learned a TON about the economic history of Chile. Our guide was super knowledgeable. Signed up for the group tour but it ended up being just us, and we got a great private tour.

Fran Pardo is the very best tour guide. She had outstanding knowledge of these cities and provided a first rate experience for us including lunch at a place with a great view. Fran should get a raise - she is really an outstanding guide.

We had a great day trip with our guide Claudio. We learned a lot and got to see a lot for the short amount of time spent in Valparaiso and Vina Del Mar. Claudio was very knowledgeable of the area and kept giving us bits of history which I enjoyed as I love history. I was happy we were able to visit Pablo Neruda's house in Valparaiso, we got there just before the crowd starting coming. We also had a chance to ride a finicular which is definitely a must. The weather was gloomy so we did not enjoy much time on the beach of Vina del Mar but the lunch recommendation there was great. We loved our lunch at Chez Gerald. If you are pressed for time, I'd recommend this tour to get to know Valparaiso and Vina Del Mar. Another perk is the stop at a vineyard on the ride from Santiago to Valaparaiso. Wine was good and our guide took great pictures.

Alberto was a very good and informative guide with a passion for Chilli.
We had one other couple on our tour from the UK which helped make the day enjoyable.
