Date: Mar 22/19

Our day with Claudio was the perfect combination of scenery, history and local life. Yet again the benefits of using a local guide bore dividends as we arrived at the museum ahead of the big tour buses, enjoyed a coffee break in an excellent quiet local cafe and arrived back at the ship before the main rush. My wife has mobility problems and Claudio was always at hand to help her whenever he was needed. Altogether a great day with a great guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Geoffrey!

In addition to the beautiful Fruitillar, Llanquihue and Puerto Varas, all of those places were beautiful and on our itinerary, Claudio started the day with a short tour of Puerto Montt and showed us a local market. That market was fantastic, the vendors were friendly and eager to show us their produce and ware. We had great fun with the vendors with Claudio serving as translator. Great communicator, very knowledgeable about fauna, flora, history, background, custom. I highly recommend Claudio.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Muchas Gracias Ben!!....Kind regards!!

Claudio did an excellent job of introducing us to Puerto Montt and surrounding areas. He took us to a local fish market not generally visited by tourists. He had our entire day planned appropriately, including giving us time to wander on our own. His English was excellent and he was a pleasure to be with. Highly recommend!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jo!! Happy to read your nice words. Good to know you enjoyed the Market. I really like that place. BEST WISHES!!

We had a great time with Claudio. He knows a lot about the area, and Chile in general. He is very personable, and it was fun to hang out with him. In addition to the standard stops, like amazing views of lake Llanquihue, Osorno Volcano, and the National Park Vicente Pérez Rosales, he took us to Puerto Varas, which is a very cute town to shop and have a snack. He gave us good recommendations for both! Highly recommended! Thank you, Claudio!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Esther; I had a great time with you too and learning a lot about your culture and religion. So interesting!! Muchas gracias por visitarnos!!....un gran abrazo

Claudio fue super profesional y muy amable con nuestro grupo familiar de 18. Tuvimos muy buena suerte ya que aun cuando al llegar al puerto el clima parecía terrible, ya cerca de Frutillar se despejó totalmente y las vistas fueron asombrosas! Lástima que el barco sólo está muy pocas horas pues nos hubiera encantado poder ver mucho más! Gracias por el tour espectacular!!! Familia Castillo (Mx)

He made every effort to provide the best experience possible and catered to our interests and desires. His suggestions as to shopping and other areas of interest were perfect. We had a very enjoyable day and would highly recommend Claudio and this tour.

Claudio was at the pier awaiting our group and greeted us immediately. We had a wonderful tour which lasted the entire day and didn't want it to end but the ship was sailing. Claudio is an excellent driver and that is important to me. His knowledge of the area was great and every landmark was explained in detail. My friend purchased some flowers at the fish market and he leant her the money as she didn't have Chilean money. I hope to book another tour with this company as this guide was superb.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Marianne, thanks so much for come to see us. The idea is to give always the best for our customers/friends. On my behalf I also enjoyed the day with your nice group. Thanks again!!

Claudio was great!!! He was very articulate and his English was excellent.He was accommodating and very helpful when both my friend and I both realized that we had left our credit cards and all cash on board the ship. The ship was tendered, so there was the no possibility to return and we were 30 minutes from the harbor. We had no money for lunch or for a tip. He bought the 4 of us lunch and refused to give us his address so that I could mail a check. He's the best!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Andrew; many thanks for your nice comments. Hope you enjoyed the empanadas!! Best wishes...Claudio

Oh Claudio, what a wonderful guide he was! Thanks so much! You made our group trip unforgettable! Claudio was a wonderful tour guide and his knowledge of history and surroundings served to enhance our experience and appreciation of Peurto Montt, Chile very much. There were so much to explore and see. Beautiful Llanquihue lake, snowcapped all year round Osorno Volcano, mixture of colors of the Petrohue river and it's rapid falls...even Puerto Varas was a memorable small town. We highly recommend him!!

Claudio was an excellent guide to an area of outstanding beauty. He customized the trip to accommodate the things of interest to us. He shared his knowledge of the area as someone who lives there, not just the Wikipedia facts, but really helped us understand the culture. We were a group of four, each with different interests and all of us had a fascinating day. We have had guides all over the world, he is one of the best.

I am super late in writing this review but our trip with Claudio in December 2017 was incredible. We were in Puerto Montt as part of a cruise. There were 6 in our party. Claudio was punctual, flexible and able to connect with everyone in our group ranging from ages 10 to 75. We went to his friends' home and cooked a meal together. What an experience. Each of us had different responsibilities. It was authentic & memorable. Stops we requested on the way included sites, chocolate, wine & a bank.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi David! Never is too late. Thanks for visit this part of the world and next time fishing should be better! Regards!

What a great day. Claudio was waiting for us at our cruise ship. He is personable and very knowledgeable and speaks very good English. If you can't book him for the day you want his wife is also a guide. There were four of us in our group and we did Petrohue Falls, the Orso Volcano and then had lunch with Claudio at a wonderful restaurant in Puerto Varas, a beautiful little town. His local knowledge made the day perfect. Highly recommend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Cathy for your words. It is always nice to share the day with people like you!!!

Claudio had a very easy going pleasant personality and excellent command of English. We never had to ask him to repeat a thing. As opposed to other guides most of who we have been very pleased with, Claudio had a unique way of introducing us to a site or shopping area. He would drive around the shopping/restaurant area pointing out what to concentrate on and recommend, than ask us how much time we wanted to ourselves, and would meet us at an appropriate place. You will not be disappointed.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I feel lucky to have so nice people as my passengers. It was a pleasure!!.....Best wishes James!!
