We meet in front of the huge monument at Plaza Sotomayor in Valparaiso every day of the week. Our guides wear red and white striped t-shirts like the children's book 'Where is Wally' or 'Waldo' on some countries, so it is easy to find us. When? Every day of the week. How much? There is no fee. The price is what you think the tour is worth after you have taken it. If our tour is bad, don't give a single peso. We work for tips, so imagine what we strive for. How do I do it? No Reservations Required. Just meet us at the main plaza. « less

We had been staying in valparaiso for 2 days before we did the free walking tour in valparaiso. We were greeted happily by our 'Wally's' -Shellie and Pricilla. The tour was absolutely INCREDIBLE. I have been fortunate enough to travel throughout Europe and do at least 7 free walking tours and this was a standout!! We learnt about history, culture... More

Our guide Lucas led us through the hills of Valparaioso with an engaging enthusiasm that never fell. If you want to know about Happy Street, the schools, fire stations and churchs built by different nationalities, the bars, the food and some political history this tour will make your day!

My partner and I were in Valpo last week and by chance found a pamphlet promoting Tours 4 Tips the following morning. The morning tour conducted by the lovely Marcia was insightful, fun and filled with little surprises along the way. We met in Plaza Sotomayor, covered the port, Cerro Concepcion and Alegre and finished within walking distance from Museo... More

Santiago is hug and is interesting. I am lucky that my hotel recommended walking with the Wally's of Tours4tips. This morning we did the 3 hour walking tour of three different markets and the Cemetary. Matillo [sorry for the spelling if I got it wrong was spectacular. As a Santiagueno he knew everything. A real treat was getting behind the... More

Nacho/Ignacio was an excellent guide who took us through beautiful places in Valparaíso while telling us the story of such places, actual social life issues and details about the architecture. He also gave us tips about the city (where and what to eat, buy etc) The tour was full of unexpected surprises. Very recommendable.

We had a very limited time in Valparaiso since we were on a cruise so Tours 4 Tips fit into our schedule perfectly. Our guides, Priscilla and Natcho were fun and energetic and gave us a real feel for the city. I have already recommended this tour to others.
