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

Thomas Poussard was our tour guide. He was there waiting for us when we left the ship. He took us to Vina de Mar first so that we would avoid crowds. He spoke very good English and so we had no trouble understanding him. He knew a great deal about the country and its history. We had a full day... More

I had just finished watching Anthony Bourdain No reservation on Santiago and the Vina del Mar area, and it provided me pleasant thoughts of a great vacation that I experienced. While this review is one year old, the comments are valid and true and I wanted to place my thoughts for other travelers. Many other have the same comments about... More

He educated us on historical events, visits to monuments of significance, and tours of very interesting places in Valparaiso and surrounding towns. We toured a fishing village, a vineyard, an Alpaca farm,Pablo Neruda's home, and a chocolate factory. Thomas arranged to... More

We highly recommend using Thomas and his company! We made arrangements for my wife and I to be picked up at the cruise port in Valparaiso. Since Thomas was committed to a larger group, we agreed to use his employee. Thomas met us after we disembarked from the ship and introduced us to Veronic, the tour guide, her friend Molly... More
