From Santiago: Highlights of Valparaiso and Viña del Mar
- Pickup available
- Duration: 10 hours
We were due to stay in Valparaiso after a two week cruise. WE thought the best way to get an understanding of the city and its history was to do a short tour. Our guide, Jeffery, was excellent. He was an American living in the city and he talked with the knowledge and enthusiasm of a local. The whole 4 hours was full of interesting facts and we saw places we would have otherwise missed. I am glad we did the tour right at the beginning as it gave us a great insight to the city and how it is laid out. Navigation afterwards was simple. Great tour, great fun excellent value.
The tour was perfect. Really good organized, amazing tour guide (Paulo was super friendly, fun, helpful and knows a lot), we’ve seen the most important parts, had a nice walk around (easy) and enjoyed the time at the beach (30 minutes) after our lunch. Our driver Carlos was really friendly and drove carefully. Would highly recommend it, also for this cheap price!
The tour was amazing. Geoff who has moved to Valpariso in the last 5 years from Milwaukee, USA is very knowledgeable and passionate about the city. Good pace to the tour and he showed us the everyday life of the residents and touristy spots. Also gave us the background on the street art and what to look out for.
Yuri our guide for the day and Leo our driver made the tour lots of fun. They were very informative and were really engaging with everyone in the group. The tour itself was good, too little time in Valparaiso and too long for lunch for my liking but overall as a highlight tour it delivered.
Our tour guide was Catalina. Very helpful and kind. She was great. Valparaiso is a city on its own. I encourage you to visit with this tour because it gives you a broad idea of what it is and where to go and then, walk it at your own pace.
