Transfer from Santiago to Valparaiso, Chile

We will be taking a cruise from Valparaiso, Chile in March of 2012, and are flying into Santiago a couple of days early to sightsee. What is the best way to get from Santiago to Valparaiso with luggage?

We will be leaving Pearson two days earlier and headed on the same cruise. We are going to risk public transportation since we are following the advice of one bag.com and keeping our luggage to a minimum. See you aboard.

Are you arriving into Santiago on the 18th? We are being picked up at airport, doing a Santiago city tour, then a winery and being dropped off in Valparaiso if you are interested in joining us?

Sorry, I must have merged two posts in my mind. We arrive January 7',2013 and are taking the HA Veendam cruise January 10. We've booked a day tour to the hot springs Banos Colinas. Thanks for the offer and enjoy your trip.

We are flying into Santiago on Friday the 18th at noon. We are being picked up by a driver, touring Santiago and a wine tour prior to being dropped off in Valparaiso at our hotel. If you are flying in that day, would you be interested in doing this tour with us?

We went through Christian-The Van Man (www.thevanmanadventures.com) who is based in Santiago. We had a driver and tour guide who spoke English. We took a tour of Valparaiso and had a stop at a wonderful winery and a little restaurant before goingon to our hotel in Santiago. This allowed us to use up the time between embarkation from the ship and check in at the hotel. Hotels are full so we would have had to wait until 3pm to check in. We also used his services in Santiago for a second tour and later that night to go to the airport. This was so much better than going on the bus...again. Cost was reasonable. I'd recommend using The Van Man. Also, he uses vry comfortable vans.

We are on vina del mar having come to Valpo by celebrity a week ago. I would suggest you stay at Sutherland House ; ask for room 303 with an upstairs view of the sea and city! They charged us $140 per night and were very helpful. Ask for Marceli and say Teodorn and Ruth sent you. You can get a cab from the

Bus terminal for about $6.

We went to rodoviario in Vina and it cost us 10CLP or $20 for two people from

Vina to Santiago! Non-stop! Buses are beautiful and safe. Two levels and comfortable seats.

We arrive Santiago 2 Jan for 4 nights before heading to Peru.

Weather has been fabulous ... Most days not a cloud in the sky. In one month. We had one brief day of rain...beats almost a foot of snow and single digits in Saratoga Springs NY!

Enjoy SA!

Hello Gaylesask, have you found anyone to share transportation with you yet? There are two of us sailing on the Infinity on Jan 20/13. Is that the same cruise as yours? If so, we are interested in sharing transportation from Santiago to Valparaiso and also tour Valparaiso and Vina del Mar before boarding the ship. If you are interested we can arrange something.
