  • Isobel was the perfect tour guide, enthusiastic, very knowledgeable and well-informed. We were so happy that we had an opportunity to spend time with Isobel she made our tour of our winery and of Santiago memorable. Her background information of Santiago was immense and her personal touches with information made our tour so much more interesting. If we return to Chile, we will definitely ask for her to be our guide.

  • The driver and guide were very friendly - the tours of both cities were amazing and being a private tour we were able talk one to one regarding any questions we had regarding the history and culture. Highly recommended

  • This was likely the best of several Viator tours we have taken. The tour guide and driver were outstanding. The tour guide, Patricia, was knowledgeable in every area of interest and importance to us. Her English skills were the best of any tour guide from a non-English speaking country and the tour was well planned and organized. Highly recommend the tour, especially with this particular guide.

  • We were met promptly at the port by our guide Pedro after a 17-day cruise to South America. Our first stop was Valparaiso. What a fun place to visit with it's vibrant color and hippie flair. We were told a great deal about the history of the area and of Chile. We then drove to Vina Del Mar where we had a lovely lunch with locals. The drive continued on through the valley of the Casablanca vineyards. Arriving in Santiago we saw all the highlights, the Palace, Museum, the Plaza and Cathedral. We were safely delivered safely to our hotel. Wonderful day, wonderful tour. Alicia Wright

  • Guide and driver showed up at ship on time. Took us on comprehensive tour of Valpariso and surrounding area. Plenty of photo ops. Quite knowledgeable of areas history. Rode the cable car! Easy drive to Santiago. Again, knowledgeable and quite interesting tour of central city and government buildings. Drove to a lovely park overlooking city. We were dropped off at hotel. Guide stayed with us to make certain everything was in order. Definitely worth it.
