Thomas is an exceptional tour guide. When preparing for our trip he was extremely patient with me when we were trying to figure out what exactly what we wanted to do. He gave us some incredible options and we opted for 2 tours. Both were amazing! The tour of Valparasio was rich with culture and art which I loved! The... More

My husband and I had an incredible day with Thomas as we explored two very different wineries. Thomas is very knowledgable about the wines of the Casablanca Valley but we particularly enjoyed talking about the history, politics, agriculture and geography of the country. Thomas took us to the Loma Largo vineyard--a very small privately owed estate where we had Peter... More

My husband and I went to Chile to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. I contacted Thomas and he designed a 5 days trip for us, in Santiago and its surroundings. He came to pick us up at the airport at 7:30 am on a Wednesday and dropped us back at the departure terminal 3 hours before we were scheduled to... More

We were in Santiago for one day staying at the airport and Thomas picked us up and gave us a full day city tour then dropped us back off at our hotel. He is extremely knowledgable about the history of the city and very easy going. There is no way we could have gotten such an understanding of the city... More

When we found a special airfare to visit Santiago from Los Angeles, the pressure was on to put together a short but great trip with as many memories as possible. We compared tours listed online and emailed with many companies. We selected Thomas based on his fantastic email response time and his willingness to accommodate our requests rather than suggest...

I wanted to get close to the Andes and Thomas got me there and showed me a panoramic view of the countryside I never imagined. Thomas is of course an extremely knowledgeable guide, but he is also considerate and kind, very focused on my happiness as a client. Can't recommend him enough!

We (my boyfriend and I) booked two days with Chile Private Tours: one in the vineyards of Casablanca and one in Valparaiso. As Thomas was not available, we did both days with Pascal. It was really great. We did not have to think about anything but enjoying our time in Chile. The vineyards were well chosen with Emiliana and RE,... More

My wife and I spent 4 days with Thomas or his staff on our trip to Chile. Several months of planning by email was easy. Thomas provided suggestions for our itinerary as well as hotels. We arrived Valparaiso by ship and were met at the pier early in the morning after Thomas picked up friends who arrived the same morning... More

I was visiting Chile for the first time to attend a wedding in Santiago. I travelled with several friends and seeing the sites through this tour company was highly recommended. Another couple we had met joined us and we had a great time! Our tour included everything that was promised and Thomas gave us some options as well. Our last... More

When we were planning to vacation in the Vina del Mar region, I booked a one day tour lead by Thomas. He picked us up at our hotel in a spacious van with a dedicated driver. In the morning we toured the city of Valparaiso. It was both driving and walking, but Thomas made sure the walking was pretty much... More
