When planning our vacation to Chile, I wanted to see as much as possible in the five days we had. I found Thomas on Trip Advisor and booked him for our five day visit, six months before we came to Chile. We had three days of wine tours with Thomas. We spent one day in the Casablanca Valley doing wine... More

Our day with Thomas was fantastic! We saw sights in Renaca, Con Con, Vina del Mar, and Valparaiso that we had no idea even existed. Thomas was an excellent guide - gave us lots of information about the history and culture of the area. He took us to an excellent spot for lunch and recommended items for us to try... More

We requested a 'non-tourist' tour and Thomas perfected it, taking in Santiago, Vina del Mar and Valparaiso. Thomas is most knowledgeable, relaxed, informative, helpful and considerate to ones needs and communication prior to meeting was excellent. Would most definitely recommend and if you are not sure what you want from your visit to Chile, simply email him. You will find... More

What a delightful day we spent exploring Santiago and soaking in the history of this vibrant and artistic city founded over five hundred years ago. All of this was made possible with the good humor, quick wit and vast knowledge imparted to us by Thomas Poussard, tour guide extraordinaire. My friend and I were heading towards Valparaiso for a cruise... More

We arrived in Valparaiso on board a cruise ship and Thomas was waiting for us on the dock side. We had booked Thomas for 2 x 1 day tours, the first was a tour of Valparaiso, Vina del Mar and Santiago and the second was a trip from Santiago to Portillo in the high Andes and onto the frontier with...

We arrived in Valparaiso off of a cruise ship on a Friday. Thomas met us in his car at the terminal and loaded our large amount of luggage and off we went. We spent one day touring Vina del Mar and Valparaiso. Thomas took us to ocean views, the flower clock, the Easter Island statue and Rodin sculpture and drove... More

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
