Yuri our guide for the day and Leo our driver made the tour lots of fun. They were very informative and were really engaging with everyone in the group. The tour itself was good, too little time in Valparaiso and too long for lunch for my liking but overall as a highlight tour it delivered.

The tour was perfect. Really good organized, amazing tour guide (Paulo was super friendly, fun, helpful and knows a lot), we’ve seen the most important parts, had a nice walk around (easy) and enjoyed the time at the beach (30 minutes) after our lunch. Our driver Carlos was really friendly and drove carefully. Would highly recommend it, also for this cheap price!

The guide, Alejandro, and driver, Leo, were excellent but the tour just wasn't that great. it was foggy and both Valparaiso and Vina were dirty and we just didn't find the beauty we expected.
