On the way we stopped for a taste of a sweet and a drink. We also got to see a spitting lama in action. We had a wonderful tour of Valparaiso Port and the city. We made a stop at Vina del Mar flower clock and we also stopped to see the Moai Statue in Vina del Mar. We loved the tour of Valpariso homes and the beautiful artwork. Our visit to the fish market was awesome and we had a wonderful lunch while there overlooking the port.

My wife and I signed up for this tour during our recent vacation in Chile. The tour was very enjoyable. Our guide, Helen, was very knowledgeable and considerate of the ability of the people in our group. She spoke flawless English, without an accent, even though she was born and raised in Chile. Before going on the tour, my wife and I were concerned about the amount of walking that would be required in such a hilly locale, but we were pleasantly surprised that the tour was organized so that almost all of the walking was downhill. We were both glad that we had taken the tour.

Michelle was our tour guide who was fantastic. She kept us informed as to what time we were being picked up and changes. Michelle spoke excellent English and was very knowledgeable, she knows her stuff. This tour was excellent we had the best day. The art work is amazing, such talent. Michelle explained how the art works as to council, permission from the owners of buildings etc. The views of the port and beach are amazing as well. We had lunch at a restaurant with beautiful views and the food was very tasty. She also took us to the fish market which was a great experience. We saw sea lions, pelicans and numerous birds up close and personal. The location of these seaside places are idyllic holiday destinations. We would love to have the opportunity to spend more time in the future. We also thank Michelle for a most enjoyable day.

Great tour. The guide was amusing and informative. Learn a lot about the city and it’s history. Could have done with longer

Well organized and escorted trip. Our guide was quite knowledgeable and her English was perfect so not hard to understand. Loved visiting the museum to see one of the statues from Easter Island and the fish market. Even though the walk through of Valipraiso was fairly short, we did get to feel the essence of the town. Lunch was fine. Nice to have it all arranged. The only disappointment was the wine tasting on the way home. The winery only offered 2 wines very quickly and we didn't get much attention from them. If you are expecting more than a 15 minute quick taste you will be disappointed. Glad we booked this trip.

The full day tour of Valparaiso Port and Vina del Mar from Santiago is one of the best tours I have ever been on. Our guide, Francisca, was absolutely delightful. Professional, friendly, and helpful. She is also very knowledgeable, and we all learned a lot about Chilean culture, economics, politics and geography. And it was fun, because she is a gifted speaker with a great sense of humor. The tour itself is well paced. It keeps moving, and we saw a lot, but it never felt rushed. The lunch was delicious, and the waiters efficient and hilarious. I also really enjoyed the rest of the tour group. It was an enthusiastic bunch, and the whole day was just plain fun. I highly recommend this tour!
