Valparaiso 4-Hour City Tour by Van and Funicular
- Pickup available
- Duration: 4 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.
Suzanne and I had hip problems but Elena managed that we strolled the Valparaiso streets at out pace and our driver would pick us up very frequently so we would have to much walking to do. Besides that Suzanne and I are french speaking from Montreal and we found out that Elena was fluently french speaking so our tour was the most enjoyable . Many many thanks to Elena.
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.
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.
Jeff is extremely enthusiastic and knowledgeable about Valparaiso. He loves the city and shows and explains why. It is one of most unique places in the world and I would encourage everyone to experience the wonderful place.
