Know More about this tour

Depart for the central coast traveling through the valleys of Curacavi and Casablanca. The latter is known for its recent success as a wine producing area.

Continue to the coast and visit the beach area of Renaca and the town of Vina del Mar, known as the Garden City for its pretty parks and flower lined streets. Visit the Gaming Casino and the coastal road.

In the afternoon continue to the picturesque port of Valparaiso built in the 16th-century on a total of 43 hills which are reached by narrow windy streets, staircases and a series of lifts (funiculars). This area has been declared by UNESCO as patrimony of humanity due to its eclectic architecture and urban development.

You may wish to visit the Pablo Neruda Museum which contains some of the poets collections, specifically related to the sea. The Museum is situated on one of the hills overlooking the bay offering fantastic sea views.

At the end of the day you have the choice to return to Santiago with the group, or stay in Valparaiso for a little longer making your own way back to the city at your leisure.

    una muy bonita excursion con buen vehiculo y muy buen guia Leonardo,la excursion muy bien planificada visitando un estand de una bodega en el camino para hacer compras y souvenirs, luego ya en Valparaiso se visita la casa de Neruda,la ciudad, el puerto se descansa un poco y se sigue a viña y a Reñacca para almorzar en un muy lindo restaurant (pero bastante caro) es muy recomendable sacar la excursion con almuerzo incluido, luego de almorzar se visita Viña y se vuelve a Santiago, el tour fue por seasonstravel, nos recogieron y dejaron en la puerta del dpto, todo perfecto

    Fizemos o passeio com a Alfatur Turismo e gostamos muito.O guia Axel era muito bem preparado,solícito e pontual. Viña del Mar é um bonito local,que deve ser visitado.Almoçamos à beira mar,num restaurante indicado pelo guia,e a comida estava excelente. Já Valparaíso,não me agradou tanto,pois aparentou não estar tão bem cuidada.Lembra em alguns pontos Olinda e o Pelourinho,tendo aspectos culturais interessantes,que terminam por fazer valer a visita.

    Great day trip, top sites - would have loved more time in Valaparaiso to explore, however were wheeled into a pre-determined, over priced lunch.

    Disappointing tour. We had only one shot to see Valparaiso due to our tight schedule so we booked the tour to ensure we were able to see everything we wanted to see. We booked through Viator but our hotel wasn't one of the hotels on the drop down. We manually put the hotel in but never received confirmation that we would be picked up from the hotel. The night before our tour we had to ask our hotel to call the tour's emergency number to confirm that we were actually going to be picked up.

    We were picked up on time from our hotel but were immediately told that eating wasn't allowed in the van during the long drive to Valparaiso. Understandable but disappointing as our hotel packed us a to go breakfast to eat during the car ride.

    Upon arrival to Valparaiso, we were ushered from point to point. My wife really wanted to see Valparaiso's famous piano stairs. She asked the tour guide if the stairs were something we would see. She also showed him a picture. His response was yes - we won't be seeing those exact stairs but we will be seeing similar stairs, which she understood as another set of piano stairs. Turns out the similar stairs he was referring to were just painted stairs. It wasn't until we reached Vina del Mar that my wife asked again for the piano stairs when the tour guide said oh, we already saw painted stairs. The tour was just us and one other couple so it was frustrating to feel like we just had to be rushed along.

    We were taken to Vina Del Mar where we were dropped off to eat lunch at one restaurant - we were not given the choice to eat anywhere else. The restaurant was very expensive and service was terrible. Lunch took us almost an hour and a half due to the terrible service. My wife and I picked two modest plates paella and a fish entree and had water to drink. Our bill was over 50 USD.

    We were taken to a few other sites in Vina Del Mar flower clock, Maoi statue. We were then taken to the botanical gardens but arrived to see the garden was closed due to a private event. Our tour guide said oh well that's too bad and hit the rode to take us back to Santiago. Due to this, we arrived back to Santiago an hour earlier than expected. The point of booking a tour like this is so that the tour company plans ahead for this type of thing to ensure the tour can run smoothly.

    Would not recommend this tour. If you're going to shell out money for a tour to Valparaiso, I would just go ahead and book a private tour to ensure you are spending time doing and seeing what you want to do. This tour could have also easily been done on your own. The train runs frequently enough to Valparaiso.

    Our tour guide did an excellent job showing us around Valparaiso and Vina Del Mar. He provided a lot of interesting history and background on the tour as well.
