This was a great day out of Santiago. Both our guide, Daniel, and driver, Jorge, were fantastic, knowledgeable, dynamic and listening to needs and questions. The tour itself is well-balanced between Viña del Mar, Valparaiso and a winery (this last stop a bit short for a wine-passionate!). It was most interesting how our guide was making so relevant comments based on his own experience, in addition to well-documented remarks on geology, history, society and economy of Chile in international context. A great tour!

Francesca Is an excellent and engaging guide. She provided us with so much detailed information about Chile, Valparaiso, Mapucho culture and history. I learned quite a lot from this tour. The only criticism would be that lunch was a bit longer than I would have wanted, but the meal at the restaurant was excellent none the less.

Great full day tour of two of Chile´s most iconic seaport towns. Francisca, our guide was fluent in English and gave a very thorough introduction to the history of colorful, and artsy Valparaiso and its adjacent resort town of Vina dl Mar. Tour was topped off with a visit to an organic winery for tastings. R. Todd

This tour was a really great way to see the highlights of Valparaiso and Vina del Mar. When I planned my trip I wanted to go to these towns but I wasn't sure where the best spots to go were. Our tour guide Francisca was wonderful. She knew so much about the history of all the areas we visited and that made it much more interesting then if we had gone on our own.

We were picked up at 8:20 sharp, as scheduled, and our tour couldn’t have been better. Our guide, Michelle, and Hector, our driver, were excellent and so knowledgeable and informative that made our day so enjoyable. Michelle explained the murals in our walking tour in Valparaiso and took us thru many winding streets and alleys with amazing views of the city. In Viña they took us to a great restaurant where we ate delicious fresh food. I highly recommend this tour!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our day trip to Valparaíso and ina Del Mar. Our guide, Francesca met us at our hotel and kept us entertained throughout the day. Jaime, our driver, navigated the traffic skillfully. We learned a lot about Chilean history and culture. Francesca answered questions and made suggestions for the rest of our visit. Valparaíso was fascinating. She lead us through the cobbled streets, up and down hills, pointing our the mix of art and architecture along the way. Thanks for a great day.

We greatly enjoyed our tour guide, Michelle, who took us to Viña Del Mar and Valparaiso on a day trip. We got very special glimpses of the cities such as an Easter Island statue 🗿at the Fonk Museum, a flower clock on the hillside and then an exhilarating tour of the fish market with its stalls, fishing boats and the Chilean navy or the multitude of pelicans and seagulls!! We even got to see sea lions angling for fish:) Next we had an hour walk through the hillside of Valparaiso, where there were vibrant - and political- murals of every kind. We had spectacular paintings around every corner and all with a story. We then took the funicular down to our waiting van. Lunch was at a special seafood restaurant with lovely views. Afterwards, we drove for 45 minutes to a winery in the Casablanca area where we had a wine tasting. We guided ourselves on a tour. All in all, Michelle was very knowledgeable and always very helpful. Highly recommended tour and a great way to see more of Chile from Santiago!

Francesca, the tour guide, made this trip absolutely fantastic. Perfect English while blending in Portuguese for the other travelers, she included everyone on the tour that day. She followed the tour faithfully, pointing out interesting things along the way to the coast. The only small downside might be the lunch place (lunch on your own) which seemed a bit pricey with good, but not excellent food. The restaurant did have a great view over the water.

Great day-trip with Frank and Juan! Frank speaks perfect English and is very engaging and knowledgeable about history, culture, wine-making, and other aspects covered by the tour. Juan is a safe and reliable driver. We made several stops and there were some nice surprises at each stop. At the end of the tour, we had the option to either be dropped off at our origin point or take Frank’s recommendation of a gastropub in Santiago for some apps and cerveza… umm, yeah! Thank you both, Frank and Juan!

Had originally planned to go to Valparaiso on our own but chose this tour and we were very pleased. Fernando and Hector make a great team, and we also were impressed with our expert canine escort as well ☺️. Pleasant mix of shopping, visiting historical and cultural sights, dining and wine tasting. Heartily recommend this tour.
