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

What a fabulous concept. A tour that is "free" but you tip the guide at the end based on how good you thought it was ($10 and up is considered fair). The guides therefore have an interest in making sure you enjoy the tour. But it seems the sort of guides self-select as enthusiastic, friendly locals who really want you... More

We did the tour in Santiago and so decided to do the one here too and again it was great. Guide was funny and knowledgable and keen to share his passion for the town while keeping it factual and light hearted. Highly recommended tour.

Did this tour July 2014 with our guide Priscilla, who was wonderful. She was extremely friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgable about Valparaiso, and after doing several tours for tips in different cities across South America, she is the best tour guide so far! The tour is a great way to see some of the different hills of the city, meet some... More

I took the Valparaiso tour yesterday with Pricila, she was a fantastic tour guide and the tour hit many of the unique aspects of the city. We even stopped by to eat authentic alfajores from a local, quite fun! The tour was entertaining, and even though I've been to Valpo over 20 times it was worth taking. Highly recommended to... More

Valparaiso is a great city but it it not an obvious one to get around. That's why taking this tour is a good idea. Of course the tour won't take you everywhere, but it is a very good intro to the geography of the city in general, its history, culture and the local way of life. Our guide, Priscilla, was... More

First of all, the quick reply via e-mail from Peter, the co-owner of Tours 4 Tips, when I planned for my trip, is very impressive. Good suggestion and clear explanation are very helpful especially for the first-time visitors. Both the morning and the afternoon tours are interesting. Wally guides are friendly and very knowledgeable about local culture as well as... More

A 3 Hour-walking tour that will start in downtown - Sotomayor square and end in Bellavista. cost is between 10 and 20 US $ - really up to you. A good idea to start your journey in Valparaiso and then get around. You will have an alfajore which is a pastry and a cocktail at the end of tour. A... More
