We meet in front of the huge monument in Plaza Sotomayor in Valparaiso every day of the week. Our guides wear red and white striped t-shirts like the children's book 'Where is Wally' or 'Where's Waldo' on some countries, so it is easy to find us. The tour is a 3 hour highlights walk through the city giving you historical, cultural, gastronomical and street art insights into Valparaiso Chile. Reservations are not required but always recommended. We also offer private tours for those who want a smaller group and more personalised experience.

“Wonderful, quick overview of the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013 via mobile

Friendly, respectful, generous tour guide, Sidney (her first official tour) assisted by Ben. Easy to find on Sotomayor, this tour was centrally located, community oriented, and a great way to kick off my visit. Treats along the way were perfect! Trolley and ascender fares were included in our tour. The tour is "pay what you like" and was worth more!

“An new perspective”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

We took a morning tour and thoroughly enjoyed the time. Ben and Sydney provided a look into the city most travelers would not experience from local history to the street art.There are stairs and uphill walks but at an enjoyable pace. I would recommend this tour however take notes as some of the sights are worth a second look and it is a rather quick overview. Noting the route and marking the points of interest would have helped. A good experience.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Ben, our tour guide, began his tour by telling us he wanted to make us love this city as much as he does and ,,, he succeeded! A very interesting and diverse tour with a guide who is taking you to places you wouldn't necessarily think of going to.

“Wonderful morning tour in Valparaiso.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013 via mobile

I did the morning tour with Erica on a beautiful day in Valpo. The group was quite big on that particular day when where was a cruise ship in the Harbour. However I really loved the 3 hour tour. We got to see a lot of sights and hidden corners and get heaps of great insight into the city from Erica.

Thank you!

“History, orientation, and a few nice surprises”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

We could have continued to wander around the streets of Valparaiso on our own, but then we would not have found the old stock exchange, tasted some local treats, or received a great introduction to the history of this port city. We ended up taking on the Tips tour on our last day of a short trip, but should have done it on our first. Thanks Ben and Francisco!
