A Recent Review of this tour

The tour delivered everything it promised. Leoncio was the ultimate host, friendly, knowledgeable, careful driver and made sure he provided us the best experience for our last day in Santiago. The tour of the market was informative and he helped us locate a leather goods shop. And, the wine tour was the perfect opportunity to immerse ourselves in the country.
