“An amazing guide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2012

Al met us at the airport and quickly got us to our hotel. He took us on a city tour the next day and managed to beat all the tour buses so that we were not overcrowded at any time. The next day we were taken to the Andes and had an incredible hike part way up the mountain. The view was incredible. On our last day with Al he gave us a tour from Santiago to Valparaiso which included a stop a local winery. We ended up purchasing wine to take on our cruise. Al speaks perfect English as he lived in the States for several years. He certainly knows his Chilean history and will tailor your tour to what your interests are. When we arrived in Valparaiso, he took time to show us the city and the adjoining resort town and made sure that we knew where not to walk for our own personal safety. I would highly recommend Al as a tour guide. He uses air conditioned vans with drivers so that you never have to waste time walking from parking spots to the various sites.

“Great Tour With Al”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2012

When traveling from Santiago to Valparaiso, consider hiring travel guide, Al Ramirez and his driver to transport both ways. He leads a very good tour in Valparaiso and Vina del Mar. (Since parking in Valpairso is very difficult, renting a car is not advised.) In addition,
Al leads tours of Chile's vineyareds that are exceptional and off the beaten path - very few tourists. Al can be reached at al@tourguideschile.com
