Ecomapu Travels, one of the smaller "free" tour companies offers a walking tour of Playa Ancha hill . It meets at Paseo 21 de Mayo at 3:00 on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. The area has some amazing architecture which is very San Francisco-like. It is worth visiting. I felt very safe in the area.

This is one of the most beautiful vantage points of the city found in one of the more established neighborhoods of Valparaiso. However, the further you go up the hill the better the views, but the more impoverished and dangerious the neighborhoods are. Take care with your personal items at this view point, but it is worth the trip!

This is by far the biggest hill in Valparaiso. While it has some interesting buildings, some nice views and a huge cemetery, it can also be a dangerous place to walk in (my bag was stolen there once while I was in the street).
