Excellent driver under very trying road conditions due to disturbances on roadways in Santiago and the Immaculate conception pilmagrage on the roadway. Excellent knowledge, humor, driving abilities, and stops that made the trip highly enjoyable. One of the best tours/drivers we have ever had.

Valparaiso and Vina del Mar are must see places when you are in Chile. Tour guide was great, funny and knowledgeable. We had amazing lunch at our own expense at a restaurant right on the ocean and it was worth any money! Food was perfect! Very well organized tour with time to take pictures and small groups.

Excellent tour. We had great views of Valparaiso and Vina del Mar and a closer look from street level. On time pick up at hotel. Comfortable vehicle, Angelica was a very knowledgeable and outgoing guide. The trip back takes some time but lots of interesting sights or good for a nap.

This was a great day trip and we were very glad we decided to do it. There were seven of us on the tour and we were picked up at our hotel in Santiago. All along the way the tour guide gave us good information. She could answer our questions and knew all about the area.The best part was that they knew exactly where to take us in Valparaiso for the best walking tour! We walked through the upper neighborhoods, on the most interesting streets. Great views, murals on the walls, colorful buildings- it was all better than we had thought. We ended the walk down at the waterfront, where we then drove to Vina del Mar. There we had lunch right at the ocean and had time to go out on the beach. Both the tour guide and driver were excellent!

It was amazing, the highlight was the flower clock. Would recommend though that guests has the opportunity to choose their own option of where to have lunch. The guide must also be very specific on time allocations, otherwise great expierence thank you

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!

Our guide Franko and the driver were very professional. The heart of the tour was some good walking around colorful Valparaiso, art areas, Neruda house, funicular--only negative was Spanish repeated in English, but questions were well answered. Long day, well spent

The guide was informative and was happy to answer questions and to quickly google anything he didn't know. Both he and the driver were very friendly and courteous. We were a small group so travelled in a comfortable minibus. We visited three good viewpoints in the hills overlooking Valparaiso port and enjoyed our short walk amongst both colourful and historic houses. The comfort stops going and returning gave the opportunity to purchase local goods including wine and delicious empanadas. Lunch was in a very good restaurant across the road from the sea. Other choices were available as well.

Muito bom passeio. As duas cidades são muito bonitas e atraentes. Ótimas paradas nos mirantes que possibilitam vistas maravilhosas. Eu sempre acho que o tempo livre, no total ou parcial em cada parada, é pouco, sem dar tempo de se desfrutar verdadeiramente da parada. Sugiro ter menos paradas e mais tempo em cada uma delas.

Our guide was amazing! His name was Rodrigo. He is very funny and active. We went to Valparaíso in one day with a lot of smog, but when we went to Viña del Mar the sun came and the beach was very beautiful. We didn't like the restaurant, the food was expensive and they gave us a wrong password to the internet. We have just ate there because we liked Rodrigo. Our driver was Rodolfo and he was very nice too. Someone told us that was a lot of sea lion there, but we didn't see them...

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.
• Submitted 06 Jun 2016
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.
