Hi, i studied in valparaiso and searched for a place to stay before i came here. i was so lucky to find mike in couchsurfing. he invited me to stay in his and his wifes flat for the first days, the best start that i can imagine! he showed me around in valpo, explained a lot about the history, knows everyone on the street and therefore not just arranges tours, but gives u a concrete idea about how live is here, with all it's positives and negatives parts.
i stayed in contact with him during all my time here and when my mum came to visit me we did several tours in valpo's surroundings.
he really knows where to go!!!
i really recommend you to do a tour with mike if you are here, it's more than those typical tourist tours!!!!
Mike he is a really great guy and guide!!!
