What to Expect

Once in Valparaíso you’ll explore the historic quarter, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You’ll pass brightly painted homes and visit monuments and plazas. Next you’ll take a funicular elevator to the top of Valparaíso for views of the vibrant city. This customizable tour lets you choose your next activity. Those with maritime interests will enjoy a tour of the bay. Fans of literature can visit La Sebastiana, the seaside home of poet Pablo Neruda (for an additional entrance fee). Your next stop is Viña del Mar, where you’ll see the well-tended Flower Clock and the art deco Casino. Lunch on your own and relax on the shores of Reñaca beach. You’ll stop at the Quinta Vergara, home of the international song festival, before enjoying a scenic ride back to Santiago.

I recommend the tour, but our tour guide, during this Corona virus crisis, had a non-stop cough and did little to suppress the spread of his germs. He even talked in an aggressively energetic manner to the point where you could see spittle coming out of his mouth. Nice guy, so

Lamentablemente el tour era en grupo y terminaban en el aeropuerto, por lo que teníamos un itinerario muy estricto. No teniamos mucho tu moto para dedicarle a cada item, pero aún así hicimos un buen trabajo.

I would rather have a day on my own than taking another tour with them. The van was quite old, tight and unconfortable, driver wasn’t very skilled and the tour guide probably knows next to zero about history. His comments were more on the grounds of «this is a school», like what
