Jimmy and Simone are the best!!!
Feb 2020
We booked this tour for our first full day in Chile. What a great way to start our vacation. The boat ride to see the penguins, a beautiful walk along the coast that we would never have found ourselves, a delicious lunch with plenty to eat and drink, and sand boarding down the dunes...fun, fun, fun! We had such a great time that we spent 2 more days with them on "custom" tours for our three generation family.
They did so many things, big and little, to make our time in Chile meaningful and fun. Highly recommend!

Fabulous day with Jimmy & Simona!
Feb 2020 • Couples
We were met promptly at our hotel at 9 o’clock by our tour guides, Jimmy and Simona. They worked together perfectly and made sure that we had a very memorable day. We enjoyed our boat ride out to the island to see the penguins and sea lions. We had a nice walk along the beach. We had a very memorable Chilean lunch and had the opportunity to do some hang gliding at a beautiful spot along the coastline. I only wish I had gone for it! Our guides would’ve been very willing to have given me the opportunity. We finished our day sand boarding at the Concon sand dunes. So much fun! We learned so much about the Chilean traditions and history, and had so much fun with our guides.

Perfect Day!!!!
Dec 2019
My husband loves penguins so I booked this tour in order to see the penguins near Valparaiso - I AM SO HAPPY I DID. We had an amazing time from start to finish. Simone and Jimmy were so amazing. It ended up only being my husband and I and we had a blast looking at the seals, penguins, birds and other wildlife at various places along the coast plus a lovely walk before a delicious lunch complete with great Pisco sours. We ended the day sandboarding and they made it simple considering it was our first time trying! I have nothing but good things to say about this tour and GO PENGUINS! :-)

Get the feel of Chilean culture, food, and experiences in one fabulous day!
Jan 2020
We cannot recommend this tour more highly. Jimmy and Simone speak beautiful English and take care of every detail throughout the day. It feels like visiting friends who show you their favorite things to do up and down the coast. We enjoyed seeing sea lions, penguins, and pelicans. We walked along several stretches of gorgeous beach and watched the waves crash, shooting white plumes of spray against the rocky tide pools. We enjoyed a delicious homemade lunch while keeping an eye out for paragliders. They served us local wines along with several Chilean delicacies. To top off a wonderful day, we climbed up large sand dunes and felt like locals giving sandboarding a try.

The best day ever!
Jan 2020
Simone and Jimmy were the greatest hosts and immediately made us feel at home. Wonderful English. The long day was gone before we knew it and I kept looking at my watch thinking where has the time gone. Yes we saw Penguins as their company name states but we saw so much more. A fun boat ride, and yes perilous to think about, but when you actually did it, fun sand boarding with a breathtaking view.

There was so much more. A great lunch with a view of paragliding right there! Really I can’t say enough about this tour. It’s small and interment, they don’t have to count you to know their comfortable van is full. They know your name. It’s a must do!

Amazing Time with Go Penguins!
Jan 2020 • Friends
I went on this excursion with my mother and had a great time during all the activites. The weather prevented us from going on a boat tour of an island with penguins on it but the guides had a backup for this exact situation. We went to a lookout spot to see a protected island about 100m from shore and we were provided binoculars. I didn't feel rushed at all and we were given ample time to take all the pictures we wanted. Same goes for the trek along the coast. The chilean style picnic was a great way to have a break and talk with the others guests on the trip. The sandboarding at Concon was also a magical experience as one of the guides is also a snowboarding instructor. I felt pretty nervous about going down the dunes but again I wasn't rushed and eventually felt safe enough about going down.

I highly recommend this tour for a chill day exploring what the coast near Valparaiso has to offer :)

Only complaint is that I couldn't find the roadtrip playlist on Spotify afterwards ;)

Great trip to see more of the region
Dec 2019 • Solo
It was great to get out of Valparaiso for a day. This trip has it all, penguins, sandy beaches, good food and sand boarding. The couple who run the tour are lovely and tell you a lot about the area whilst catering for your needs.
If you want to do something different whilst visiting Valparaiso or Vina del Mar then I highly recommend this course. Good value for money too.

Nice people, nice day!
It was more a daytrip with friends than a classic tour -and I didn't know anybody! I loved the friendly, relaxed atmosphere and the places we saw, and the sandboard was very fun. It was a pity we didn't go on the boat to watch the penguins, make sure you ask specifically if this is possible when you go if you don't want to see them only with a binocular. Still, it was worth it.

Amazing day!

This tour was amazing -- Jimmy and Simona were really great guides and they were super attentive to my friend who is gluten free. The boat ride was super exciting and seeing the penguins was unreal! The tour shows so many different types of flora and fauna, even pine trees right up to the beach. Highly recommended!

Amazing Day
Nov 2019
Our hosts were awesome - very fun people to have on this trip. They were accommodating to my gluten allergy and actually found a place for a gluten free salad for my lunch. Beyond that, the trip itself was very cool - we saw tons of sea lions and penguins, amazing views and nature, and topped it off with spectacular sandboarding at the end. An amazing day!
