Tour: #373313, San Antonio Port to with tour in Valparaiso and Santiago, San Antonio, Valparaiso, Chile    view tour
Date: Feb 6/20

Thanks for a great tour starting at the port of San Antonio, then City of Valparaíso, a wineary (lunch and wine) and ended the day in Santiago at the airport after seeing some of the city. Had a full day tour after getting off our cruise ship and flew out that evening. It was nice having a driver as well so we could leave our valuables in the car when we went for a walk to see the sites on foot. One of Leo's hobbies is birding which was helpful when at the beach.

Leo is fantastic! Ship arrived at a different port, delay of 5 hours, no problem. Excellent communication in perfect English- adjusted the tour to see the best parts, and did so cheerfully. Rather than drive around Valparaiso he took us on a walking tour so we were able to see many parts of this fabulous art town not seen in a vehicle. (Wear good walking shoes-lots of steps, but we started at the top and walked our way down, where the driver was waiting to take us to a gorgeous winery. Highly Recommend!

Get the best tour possible of Santiago. Leo is bright, witty, very personable, and knows all things Chilean!! He is very well spoken and explains even difficult concepts clearly and simply. He knows all aspects of culture but especially food and wine. And he is both aware and respectful of guests' likes and dislikes as well as of any mobility or other issues they may have. This was our second trip to the Santiago area using T-by-L and Leo showed and taught us things we had not learned before.

The score was wonderful. My wife was ill the day of the tour, so I went on the tour alone with Leo. Because there were two guys on the tour he modify the tour to adjust to the type itinerary that a guy would like. This was wonderful. We're also trying to find a certain item in the stores but it was not available. So he got the item for me from his own household and dropped it off the next day. It was above and beyond what was expected. I highly recommend this tour guide.

We loved the tour! The alpaca farm was once in a lifetime, my teenage daughters loved it! Lunch was delicious and a quaint place and the penguins and time on the beach were amazing. Leo was knowledgeable and very fun! Highly recommend!

We had a full 5 out of 5-star tour. Leo was on time and drove a very nice SUV. He provided the tour exactly as described with one major exception. The stories, sharing, photographic tips and the warmth of Leo did not fully come through on a website. He took us through the markets, stopped at interesting places and spoke with locals. We finished with an exceptional lunch at Casa de Bosque winery and the premier wine tour/tasting. I realized that ToursbyLocals is a great way to do cruise e

We had a wonderful tour with Leo. We left our hotel and headed for the coastal region, Valparaiso and Vine del Mar. On our way, we stopped at his favorite winery where we tasted and purchased several bottles of wine. In Valparaiso, he took us to places that most tourists would not see. Valparaiso is one of our favorite towns in Chile. If you enjoy cooking, take this tour with Leo. He has his own specialized food and tasting store and cooks special meals for his friends.

We toured wineries in Maipo Valley today with Leo. He is timely, friendly, knowledgeable and an excellent conversationalist. Leo speaks English very well. The wineries we toured were enjoyable, yet very different. We were able to experience both large and small. Haras de Pirque was our favorite. The wines were excellent and the equine history was intriguing to us. Thank you, Leo, for a wonderful day!

Tour: Valparaiso Cachagua Penguins Island, Valparaíso, Valparaiso, Chile
Date: Oct 21/19

Leo designed a custom tour of Cachagua & Valparaiso for us. He answered all our questions as we enjoyed the beauty of the coast in Cachagua & the wildlife on Penguin Island. Driving along the coast to Valparaiso, Leo showed us some of his favorite spots for bird and sea life viewing (exceptional!). After a delicious lunch in Valparaiso, Leo took us on walking & driving tours around the most distinctive parts of the city. We had a perfect day out from Santiago. This tour could not have been better.

Leo took us on a very pleasant trip to one the best wine-producing areas in Chile. We had perfect weather and were able to stop and see sights of interest as we drove along. We had very informative winery visits and throughout the trip, Leo provided us with excellent commentary and answered all our questions about the area and the wine industry. Leo is an exceptional guide, and we recommend this tour highly.

We really enjoyed Leo's introductory tour of Santiago. Unfortunately, our tour coincided with the civil unrest in the city. But Leo skillfully avoided the problem areas while showing us interesting historical sites, and we felt quite safe. We really liked the market tour where Leo showed us many foods and other items we were unfamiliar with and explained their production and use. Leo was an excellent ambassador of Santiago and we thought he gave us an exceptionally fine tour.

Leo was great and very informative however the content of the tour is very simple. We spent most of the time driving around the city in a car...different parks and buildings were pointed out as we drove past them We feel we could've paid half of what we did and paid a taxi driver to do the same

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Coraleen With a lot respect , I try do my best job with you and you always was in hurry and you don't wait and listen all my explanation of every historical place we stop and I would like to know , what the other people think about my job of the tour. Leo

It was a pleasure having Leo show me around Santiago. Besides being knowledgeable and good-humored, he was solicitous: he slipped me a pack of tissues just as I was thinking that I needed some, and when on our tour of the market I asked what chirimoya tasted like, he quickly had a chirimoya smoothie whipped up for me. I'd be happy to go on another tour with him.
