We took the Tours for Tips tour on Monday 8/17/2015 and were so happy with it! The guides were on time and personable, and they broke the group into English and Spanish speaking groups. Our English guide, Chris, was AMAZING. First of all, he's half American and half Chilean, so had the languages and cultures down. He was able to... More

Great tour!! Great guide (Paula)! With her I could even follow the tour in spanish, so if you are learning spanish but have problems with the chileno, do it with Paula! Because of a misunderstanding with a friend I only tipped her 3000 pesos (please forgive me!) but it's definitely worth more!

Hey Kristinoli! So cool you took the tour in Spanish even though it’s not your first language! We are so glad you enjoyed the tour with Paula and don’t worry about the tip. As we have said earlier, you decide the price and this review is priceless for us! Thank you! Peter. More

Valparaiso is a great city and this tour made us realise this! Chris was our guide, and he pitched the tour perfectly. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Valparaiso - we would never have been able to explore properly without this tour. Chris also gave a lot of food and drink recommendations, some of which we tried out that evening... More

We had a fantastic tour back in February. My husband and I only did not give ourselves nearly enough time to spend in Valparaiso (a half day) so I knew we need a good tour if we were going to see anything and understand anything about the city. With our half day, we ended up being late for the tour,... More

Buenas dias! Thank you for your fantastic review! It is exactly these experiences that we work hard to show you. With only half a day in Valparaíso you made the right choice by joining one of our tours. We are so glad you got to experience both cities on your short visit and hope you found a good jazz club...

Having tried out the Santiago tour the day before and with only 24 hours in Valparaiso, we decided to give the tour a go and we were not disappointed.

Hey Graces! Thanks for keeping our secret. Valparaíso is full of hidden treasures and we are glad you got to experience some of them even though it was only a 24 hour visit to this exhilarating city. We are very happy for the heart-warming words. Have a great day! Come back next year for another visit.. Peter More

We had two guides for our walking tour, Eduardo and Christian - both were excellent! It was a really fun tour around the city, stopping for empanadas and alfajores on the way (which were excellent) and we were able to ask questions about anything and felt the guys really knew a lot about their city and the history etc. Sorry...

My boyfriend and I were in Valparaiso for two nights, but only one full day, and found this a really great way to get to know the city. We took the afternoon tour, taking the morning to walk around by ourselves, and see the Naval Museum, and throughout the tour discovered just how much we missed by trying to see... More

Hey Lnapier! Your awesome review warms our hearts, thank you! Valparaíso can be a maze if you don’t know where to go. Even though you didn’t have long in the city, you found the best way possible to experience it. I’m glad you were part of a friendly group, and our impression is that generally the groups are friendly and... More
