Tours 4 Tips was such an awesome way to spend our first afternoon in Valparaiso! Our guides were Priscilla and Andrea. Priscilla was an absolute wealth of local knowledge, and Andrea though only new to being a guide did a fantastic job! The tour takes you to the parts of Valpo that you may not discover otherwise... Such a great... More

With our chilean american guide CHRIS it was a wonderful experience to wind through the streets and alleys of Valparaiso. I am moderately fit and have bad knees but found the tour no problem at all. I recommend it to everybody going to Valparaiso.

My guides were felipe, mathias and andrea. They were amazing and gave us an informative tour! We went on to the ascensor and took a mini bus ride as well. There was even a free chicha drink at the end!

This tour was the best possible introduction to Valparaiso. We did this on our first afternoon in the city, and in the following days were able to discover new parts of the city with confidence. We had a chorrillana at the restaurant they recommended, 'El Domino' and it was actually the worst I've had in my 6 months in Chile,... More

This tour is worthwhile, especially as an overview of Valparaíso. I am a fan of wandering and trying to find my own way, but this was so helpful--I know I wouldn't have seen half of the lovely things I did if I had been hiking up streets blindly (which is exactly what I did the day before). Chris was the... More

I took the afternoon tour with Chris, after really enjoying my Tours 4 tips experience in Santiago. I must say that the Valparaíso tour did not disappoint! Chris was very well spoken, humorous, and informative. He provided our group with enough dining, sightseeing, and insider tips to keep anyone busy during their trip. The free alfajor, chicha, ascensor, and bus... More

Tour started 1/2 hour late, thus wasting our time. Very little in the way of history or ancedotes. Walk focused on sensational, supposedly titilating aspects of Santiago. Geared towards young singles. Have experienced Tours 4 Tips other tours and they were great with Lisette, Ignacio & Pricilla.

Brilliant introduction to the City! Chris, the half-American, half-Chilean guide, was awesome in describing many sites of interest and telling a good story or two as well. In addition, he took us for some authentic locally-made chocolate Alfajors (sweet biscuit type dessert-yum!), as well as some alcoholic chicha at the end! A great tour in addition of some of the...
