Does Christian the Van Man meet the ship when it docks? Does he take more than two people?

If so, does he split the cost? Thanks for your help.

In early 2013, we used local tour operator AboutChile for pickup at the cruise port, tour of Valparaiso and Vina del Mar, and transport to the Hotel Orly in Santiago. (We also used them for two additional tours on other days.) We were pleased with their service. -- J-D

AboutChile would be a good choice. I believe they are owned by the same people as the Hotel Orly. They have always had good feedback. This may well be too late for the original poster, but others have come onto the thread more recently.

Too late to help you.

I too arrived on Princess cruise in March 2014.cruise line were quoting $89 to either Airport or Sheraton hotel in Santiago. We requested late disembarkation (0930) by which time earl most everyone had gone ,ship docked 0530. No queues anywhere ,as soon as we exited terminals abt 100 yes away there were lots of taxi drivers touting for business . Cost $10 from. Cruise terminal to Bus station ,short distance but we'll worth the mone

Bus station busy but short queue at Pullman Bus counter to purchase ticket. Cost Clip3600 (abt $8 ) for allocated seats on modern coach with WiFi. Journey time abt 1hr45 terminus in Santiago terminus.0n arrival taxi drivers where at bus side touting for business, he carried our cases abt 10yds to the taxi ,$15 to hotel

. Total cost $41 for 2 compared to $178 via cruise line and we would have needed a taxi from Sheration to our hotel ,so probably saved $160 of abt £100.

Although the bus is an option, only take it if you do not have too much luggage, preferably have a bit of Spanish and are aware that bus stations can be tricky places and unofficial taxis at the kerb can be a risk. It works for a lot of people and is much cheaper, but do be aware of the possible downside before you decide.
