I had a wonderful day with Cecilia. We travelled to the Parque Nacional de Cerro La Campana and walked up to the mines. The scenery was stunning! We had mountain views, views of Olemur and Limache and of the surrounding mountains. It was one of the most beautiful and rewarding walks I have done in a long time. Along the way are signboards with information about the local biodiversity which is very different to what I am used to so it was interesting to learn. At the top is a shaded area where you can relax and enjoy the spectacular views. I would recommend the walk but it is a bit steep. It was very nice to go with Cecilia from Gemtours as I would have been lost without her. She provided a lot of motivation and she gave lots of information about the local area. It was a great day.

My cousin and I took the 4 hour tour in Valparaíso as recommended by Mauricio (who we met in San Pedro de Atacama). As both of us speak Spanish (although we're not native speakers), we wanted to take the tour in Spanish and this was no problem for Cecilia, she made sure we understood all! She knows every corner of the city and showed us places we would never see with other tours and especially not if we would try to find them ourselves! Most interesting were all the stories behind the murals. I would really recommend to take the tour to all who visit Valparaíso, it really is an added value to your visit!

We hovered around the Plaza Sotomayor hoping to find someone to offer us a tour around the famous graffiti and street art of the city. We found Xenia and she started us on our way. She spoke English really well and was funny and full of stories, histories and opinions on the area. The walk did not feel rushed and she was happy to stop for various photo opportunities and took some lovely photos of my wife and I. It wasn't a difficult walk (most of the hilly areas are conquered using the city's funicular railway thingys). I recommend this tour! The street art is amazing and by walking with Xenia at Gemtour you get to see some amazing examples that you may miss by going solo!

Cecilia is very nice and knowledgeable about the city and I appreciated that she came to the tour with a lot of material/historical pictures of the city for me. By the time I took the tour, I had already been in Valparaiso for a little while and Cecilia was great about adapting the tour to what I wanted to see in the city, skipping the more touristic neighborhoods so I could explore a different aspect of the city. A flexible, easy going guide!

We hired Antonia as our guide for a private afternoon walking tour around Valparaiso, starting in Plaza Sotomayor. She spoke fine English, and was very patient and kind with my husband who has a disability and walks slowly. We learned a lot from her, and we are especially interested in history and architecture. Like many Chileans we've met, she learns English independently, outside of formal schooling and asked some good questions such as our use of "holy cow." She is local and proud of her hometown, and knows a lot about the art and culture of Valpo.
