We meet in front of the huge monument in 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 'Where's Waldo' on some countries, so it is easy to find us.

We were in Valparaiso for just over a day and this tour proved to be an excellent way to see interesting bits of the city, some of which we would otherwise have missed. There were lots of photo opportunities, especially of the street art. Priscilla (a real entertainer) and Matthias were informative, lively and fun.

An excellent intro to Valparaiso. Our guide was very good with clear Colorado English, and the places he took us were complemented with interesting stories and historical information. He took us to the harbour and the downtown historical region first, then up an ascensor to the Conception district with unusual architecture and funky murals. All are UNESCO sites. What I... More

Informal and pleasant way to discover Valparaiso on foot with passionate and very knowledgeable tour guides. This no fixed fee where we offer a tip at the end of the visit is actually a great concept. We had two guides who alternated with great stories and facts about many areas of the city. We had Ferdinanda and Chris who were... More

We were met by a Wally guy at 3 pm for a 3 hrs walking tour of Santiago. After a brief wait we were assigned to tour guide, a young but knowledgeable girl with a perfect English and a sense of humor. Her passionate introduction of the history and customs of the Chilean people gave us memorable insights into this... More

I came across some information about their walking tours just by accident and not knowing anything about the city I decided to join one of them. It was a very good choice! The guides really knew what they were talking about and not only had lots of knowledge but also a great sense of humour! They guided our group round... More

Wally was our guide and for the fact that this is tip based he was spectacular. He knew his stuff and really made me fall in love with Valpariso. His drinks were awesome and recommendation were well appreciated. Also the fact that we did most of the city in few hours was well worth it. He was awesome!

What a perfect Sunday tour it was! Fernanda showed us the real Valparaíso with extra stress to the porteño way of living and the exquisite murals of the city. I highly recommend this!

I have never taken a group city walk in my life and had already discovered some of the places the guides showed us by myself earlier, but their local knowledge made the experience incomparably richer. I had arrived on my own in Valparaiso at 11 am after a 12 hour overnight bus journey, leaving for Santiago airport the next day,... More
