Excellent Tour, to know both cities in one day and have lunch in the best way. Our guide Gabriel 10/10, excellent energy and way of conducting the tour; It makes the experience much better, deep knowledge of the topics seen and he shared many of his experiences with us as a guide, the driver Roberto is also excellent.

This was a great excursion out of Santiago. Gabriel our guide was fluent in 3 languages keeping all of his explorers in the know in their native language. He was professional and fun. We had a fabulous lunch at Mediterano, a lovely restaurant with a gorgeous view of the Pacific. Roberto our driver was amazing navigating the narrow streets and busy highways. All in all a great day.

Great tour, well organized and nice guide and driver. The timming was ok, I wish that we could have more free time to wander by ourselves in Valparaiso, but we hit all the key points (panoramic views, port, color scale, ride in panoramic elevator and brief navigation around the port). There was little time to explore Vina del Mar but we catch a glimse and had lunch there. Good experience overall.
