What people are saying about Valparaíso

It was great to enjoy both natural beauty, as well as interesting architecture along with street paintings. Our tour guide, Daniel from Chile Dream Tours, was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. One thing to note is that is was 15 degrees C cooler on the Pacific coast than it was in Santiago. Fortunately we had warm enough clothes with us.

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.

Beautiful area and our guide was truly special. Sean speaks perfect English and shared so much information with us. He even took pictures of our group with his own camera and emailed them to us. Exceptional!

We lucked out with a private tour. Kay was a great guide and especially perceptive of our interests. Lovely area where we would not have driven ourselves. Our driver was safe and courteous.

A wonderful day with many interesting impressions. Everything went perfectly.
