Thomas was an excellent tour guide and showed us all the site that we wanted to see, but hadn't heard of yet. He introduced us to a great restaurant on the side of the hill that we would have never wondered into. He knows a bunch of the locals, speaks english well (is a French transplant). It's been a while... More

I was most pleased with the service, advice and flexibility from Thomas. He was very knowledgable and was able to tailor the private tour to suit my needs. Even allowing a gift-shop stop when the opportunity arose. It certainly made the next few days in Viña when it came to navigating my way around and knowing a bit more about... More

Six of us booked a tour of Valparaiso and Vena del Mar and transfer to Santiago with Thomas Poussard. The tour was excellent and Thomas proved to be a knowledgeable, interesting and extremely nice tour guide. He provided an excellent itinerary, answered all our questions and was most responsive to our requests. He met us promptly as we debarked from... More

We spent two days exploring Santiago and Valparaiso, Chile with Thomas as our guide. He was very interesting and knowledgeable and quite entertaining! Loved every minute. We learned about the history and people of the area and had fun doing so. Thanks Thomas!

We enjoyed very much the tour of Valparaiso and Santiago guided by Thomas Poussard on Dec. 18, 2014. We came off the cruise ship that morning in Valparaiso. Thomas picked us up and took us to see the interesting streets with the colorfully painted walls and the many "wall arts" in the old town of Valparaiso. If we had more... More

My sons and I spent a wonderful day with Thomas in the Casablanca wine area. Thomas was so accommodating, knowledgable and kind. If I had known earlier how great the experience was going to be I would have contacted him earlier and used Thomas for other excursions as well. Unfortunately we were leaving Vina del Mar later that day. I... More

We booked a 14-day Celebrity cruise in mid March 2014 that sailed from Valparaiso, Chile to Miami. Since this was our first trip to Chile, we decided to go a few days early to do some sightseeing in the area. The plan was to stay in a hotel in the resort community of Via del Mar near the port of... More

Tom was our tour guide for two days during our February trip to Chile. We travelled one day to the Winery Errazurriz for a tasting and lunch, with a visit to a unique alpaca farm, where you can see the animals, the wool, the machines and the final products. Tom's tours give you the true feel of the Chilean countryside,... More

We spent 2 fantastic days with Thomas. Of course we visited very nice things, but Thomas made them even more interesting by his knowledge, comments and friendly attitude. We visited some places that were not in standard tours., where we were the only tourists. Had lunch on very local restaurants. Thomas knows the area even better than native Chilean people.... More

Thomas Poussard was our local guide after the 14-day Golden Princess cruise in South America on Feb 15, 2014. When we interacted with him on-line before the booking, he was very responsive within 24 hours all the time and clear in communication on our expectation and the arrangement. When he picked us up at the Valparaise terminal, we realized that... More
