With a day to spare before our cruise we wanted to tour Santiago safely. Chile private Tours was our answer. From the moment Claudia picked us up in the morning our day was full of information and sightseeing. We were fortunate to arrive at the Presidential Palace in time to watch the very impressive changing of the guard. Our walking... More

It's not often that I book private tours, but during my trip to the Santiago area, it was perfect for what I wanted to do. Traveling alone meant booking group tours were generally not possible as I found most required bookings for at least two people. Thomas and his company did not have that requirement. Three days were spent with... More

We loved our private tour to see Pablo Neruda's house in Isla Negra. On the way back we stopped in a charming little fishing village to have lunch, then back to Valparaiso to see the sights and murals in the hills. Thomas is terrific about keeping in touch and ensuring that all goes well with your visit.

After deciding to visit Chile this past December, my wife and I reached out to Thomas to help us plan a program. I was 6 months pregnant and Thomas was extremely conscious of this. We spent time our time in Santiago, Valparaiso/Vina del Mar, and San Pedro. Thomas created an incredible program in these cities and delivered the exact trip... More

Then we had an in depth look at Valparaiso where we walked a lot admiring this beautiful city with great art murals. We had a... More

I booked three tours with Thomas' company and had a wonderful time. The tours were a half-day Santiago tour with Julio, a full day tour up the Cajon de Maipo with Thomas, and a full day tour to Valparaiso with Julio. They are both excellent guides and I recommend them very much. I wanted to take photos on the tours... More

This was a 5 star experience all the way. We cannot praise Thomas Poussard, our tour guide Vincent and his company Chile Private Tours enough. Our cruise ship Celebrity Infinity arrived in Valpariso in the early morning hours of December 24. Our plane back to Atlanta wasn't until 10 that night. We had all of our luggage and 14 hours...

I booked 2 tours, one for Santiago and one for Valparaiso and Viña del Mar. I did not plan with much time and I sent an email to 8 different agencies like 5 days before going to Santiago. This one was the only one that responded me very quickly and with ideas for my tours to take the most of... More
