We had a two day tour of Santiago, Casablanca and Vina del Mar before taking a cruise. My wife is handicapped and requires extra attention. We were met at the airport by Julio, who works with Thomas. He was really wonderful. He made our two days a real pleasure, and when we left him we felt that we had made... More

Ruperto was a guide for this trip, he was passionate and knew the area and history very well. Our next tour was... More

My friend and I booked two private tours with Thomas, one to Valparaiso and another to do the Glacier Hike out in Cajon del Maipo. We were a little nervous at first as we had to change the days at the last minute due to a worker strike in Chile but Thomas worked it all out for us. The Valparaiso... More

Valparaiso is a unique city and the art on the walls is very good. Julio knows the city well and can talk about the individual artists. A recommended company and a recommended experience.

At first we were a little disapointed because we were expecting Thomas but he apologized for having to send someone else and everything went super well. We were taken everywhere, Vincent,our guide also spoke French which suited us. We had a nice lunch overlooking the city and the ocean. We were very pleased with our day and we highly recommend...

We had never been to South American and arrived a day before a two week organized tour. Friends had recommended this tour company. Julio picked us up at 8:00 am in our hotel. He took us to Isla Negra-Pablo Neruda's home. That was lovely. Then onto charming Valparaiso, topped off by the perfect lunch overlooking the Pacific. Then on to... More

It was very nice to have a guide so in tune to our wants without having to ask. Julio was excellent... More

We were part of a Tauck tour to Chile but elected to use Thomas and Julio to visit Vina del Mar and Valparaiso instead of the tour-planned visit to a vineyard. We were thrilled with the results. Julio is friendly, engaging and efficient in his touring. Julio picked us up in Santiago and took us on a highlight reel visit... More
