Mauricio M.

Santiago, Chile

I am a happy Chilean man who studied Business at the Catholic University of Chile and found out how good life can get if you share it with others.

This is what motivated me to travel across my country from North to South and discover the beauties it has to offer.

I have been guiding people to places like glaciers, deserts, salty lakes, high mountain areas, the coastline, rivers and beautiful wine valleys since 1989. I developed an interest in wine production, the wine valleys and food tasting tours that go with them. I also started to combine wineries with tourism, culture and traditions.

I enjoyed the combination so much that I studied winemaking and viticulture in order to experience the real identity of our wine regions and to provide more extensive information while you learn about our great Chilean food and wines :)

During my tours I like to take visitors to boutiques and traditional wineries, spend time with locals and pair those wines with authentic Chilean food, while at the same time enjoy the different geographies of my land: Valparaiso (Coastline), Aconcagua (Andes), the Majestic Andes Mountains and of course the wine country. The idea is that you can also get an up close experience of the geography and endemic nature on foot, by bike, etc.

I own two vehicles for the safest and most comfortable trips. We just need YOU to enjoy it all :)

A Recent Review of this guide

Mauricio was wonderful. Company arranged the tour on very little notice - we booked the afternoon before. Mauricio told us he got word a 2-3 in the morning. He put together a personalized trip around Santiago tailored for us (with two kids age 4 and 7). We hit the highlights, and talked about the political history of the City, but also stopped at horse stables and an ice cream store. He was flexible and accommodating, his conversation as engaging, and his knowledge of the area thorough. Excellent!
