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.

An excellent tour taking in the historical, cultural and geographical highlights of the city. Leonardo is extremely personable and knowledgeable while also displaying great pride for his city and its way of life.

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

Leo is the best! He is extremely knowledgable, kind, and personable. I had a blast exploring the city and neighboring sites with him. He is proud of his roots so it felt like an old friend was showing me his hometown. Would definitely contact him if I ever return! Thanks, Leo. Hope you are well.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Laura Thank you very much for your beautiful review and I appreciate a lot and I love , what I do and share with my friends / clients , I love to have happy clients , then make money Thank you very much and big huge 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.

Leo gave an excellent tour of Santiago. He is very knowledgeable about Chile and Santiago. The pace was just right and his driver was excellent! I strongly recommend Leo.
We spent a fun filled afternoon with Leo seeing the sites of Santiago city. He was knowledgeable and considerate. His photography tips were great and he made sure we got the images in the best possible light. We loved sitting down and sharing a drink with him and sampling a Pisco Sour! Thanks Leo, 10/10! We loved our sense of humour and the laughs we had.

Rebecca SnyderIndiana, PA, United States
We had a fantastic tour of the city of Santiago with Leo. He showed us all the highlights of the city, including the different sections of the city and information about the people who lived and worked there. Our tour included both driving and walking and it was nice to stroll in the Plaza De Armas and have a guided tour of the Pre Columbian Art Museum. Leo was very friendly and seemed to know everyone in the city! We would highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Rebecca Thank you very much for your review and I am very happy , you enjoy and learn a lot about our culture and the Pre Columbian Art Museum , I love that place. Please the review have to be in this section , I know you write for T.A but please mention Tours by Locals Thank you very much Leo

Leo was right in time to meet us at our hotel and was friendly and welcoming. We had arranged a tour for Monday not realising that all the museums are closed so worth knowing if you want to visit any. Leo is very knowledgeable about his country's fascinating history but is equally happy to talk about more recent events. He took us to some super areas around the city that we will visit again ourselves. A great guide!!

Leo was so friendly and knowledgeable. He loved sharing his love for Santiago. Lots of fun to be with.
Phyllis Van WanseeleUnited States
Santiago came alive through our gracious host who not only knew the city very well but also gave me free camera shot advice. Leo was very accommodating to our schedule and helpful.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Phyllis Thank you very much for your great review and I thing you need to be back to Chile again and visit South of Chile , Puerto Montt , Puerto Varas and Frutillar and do the lake crossing to Argentina is beautiful trip A big huge Leo
The tour gave me a general view of Santiago which was my expectation due to the short time I had. Leonardo was helpfull and fully answered my questions. Next time I go to Santiago I will be able to organize myself better and do it by myself. The tour showed me that Santiago merits a longer visit.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Henriqueta Thank you very much for your review and you are totally right , Santiago is a lot to see , but we need more time to explore a lot more I hope see your next visit and you have more time Leo
It was a pleasure to be guided for our first time exploration of Santiago. Leonardo was just delightful in sharing his knowledge of such a great city; in a very casual and relaxed manner; very thorough in passing information and the tour of the city was brilliantly passed. Thanks Leonardo for your fruitful guidance in such an interesting city. Lisa & Dani

Leo was fantastic and very accommodating. After a very long flight most of us fell asleep in the car and Leo drove around pointing out the most interesting places for my husband (who was awake)! Would recommend Leo and his tour - I hope to be able to finish it next time!
Ira S.United States
Leo picked us up on time. It was a Sunday things were very quiet on the roads. We got lucky and showed up just in time to see the changing of the guards. Leo got us a front row view of the parade. We then did a walking tour of downtown. it was hot so we did things quicker then we might have liked and Leo did his best to give us a history lesson. Then it was off to the newer part of the city with a car tour. Finally a lunch in a local restaurant. Dissapointed in we ended at 3 and didnt see Christobal hill
Howard BergerUnited States
Tour was great. Leonardo gave us a educated and informative briefing of the city and country. Although we started with a miscommunication of not picking us up at airport as scheduled, he more than made up for it with his professionalism.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Howard Thank you very much and my apologies for not meet you at the Airport as we agree before and after that situation we had a excellent day in the City Tour of Santiago and the typical places where the Chileans know Thank you very much Leo Cuzmar

We had a 12 hour layover in Santiago on our way back to the states and booked Leo for a tour of the city. The enthusiasm of Leo and his knowledge of the city made the tour a great time and a great experience. We highly recommend Leo to anyone who wants a great tour. This was also our first experience with Tours by Locals and we were not disappointed.
