They only allow you to give 5 stars. I would have given 10 if allowed. Jeffrey was a great tour guide. Friendly, informative and knowledgeable. Really knew his stuff but also happy to talk about any aspect of Chile in particular and Latin American in general. I absolutely recommend a tour with him

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.

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.
