My wife was in Santiago Chile for over two weeks on business recently, and I chose to tag along, using her free evenings and weekends for exploration. Having been to Santiago myself for business several years ago, I thought I 'knew the ropes' --- boy has the city changed! Fortunately, we received a recommendation from our local hotel for an excellent guide service, 'Guides Chile' at email@example.com. Our excellent guide, Leonardo, took us on a personalized tour of the region including Valparaiso, Vina del Mar, and the Aconcagua wine region. He knew many of the excellent vintners personally, and we received a warm and generous welcome at two of our personal favorite vineyards, Errazuriz and Von Siebenthal, where we got to chat for an hour with Mr. Siebenthal personally. Can't say enough about this guy or his company, very flexible, fluently bi-lingual, and brings a real love of his city and country to his work.
