We were on a private day tour of Valparaiso and Vina del Mar. We started off by visiting Pablo Neruda's house which was exquisite and then walked along the cobbled stone avenues. The layout of the city reminded me of San Francisco. Loved the colorful walls! We feasted our eyes on the incredible graffiti, some of which were truly works... More

We came off a Celebrity Cruise and were looking forward to seeing the city of Valparaiso. We were not disappointed!! We had a charming hotel in the colorful downtown and took a private tour of the city. It was charming and fun. We enjoyed pisco sours, yummy local food and had a most enjoyable time!!!

Valparaiso is a joy to behold. Embrace the colorful buildings, the street art, the ascensors, the steps to climb the streets, the cobblestone streets, the street markets . . . Life is full and interesting. Don't forget the bus for an interesting ride down the hill, or up. Hang on tight during the twists and turns. Take a tour -... More

Great for a wander, lots of stairs, interesting alleys, great views and lots of interesting art, craft, galleries and museums. You never know what is around the corner. Take your walking shoes a sense of curiosity and spend some time in the cafes and restaurants.

This is a good place to walk around and see many 3 and 4 hundred year old places. You must keep an eye out for dog poop as there are many dogs and cats laying all over the streets. They get along well together and people put water buckets out for the creatures so there is no fighting over resources.

A truly magical place, great to wander around, with stunning views, and full of great places to eat. I went specifically to paint, and it's certainly picturesque! The cable cars are brilliant, and it's easy to get around.

We arrived off a cruise ship so had to go through the port area to see Valpo. Be vigilant. The area is a typical port area with a lot of beat up buildings, fast restaurants but once you get past that , the city itself has a lot of charm in the colors and graffiti art as well as the... More
