Juan Carlos was our guide for 5 different tours in 4 days. He provided us with an excellent experience. He was prompt, courteous and exceptionally friendly. His knowledge of Santiago and Chilean history gave us a rich feeling for the country. We would definitely recommend him for anyone looking for a wonderful experience in Chile

Juan Carlos was a wonderful guide, helping us to understand what the city of Santiago is all about, its history, development and current situation. In addition he clued us in on very local things, such as the delicious "Mote con huesillo" (a refreshing concoction made with husked wheat, dried peach in a sugar/cinnamon drink). We enjoyed our day with Juan Carlos and highly recommend him.

We had a wonderful afternoon with Juan Carlos. He was on time, showed us exactly the things we wanted to see and was very informative throughout the afternoon. We would seek out doing another tour with him if we had more days in Santiago.

Juan Carlos gave my wife and I a six-hour private tour of Santiago. He was extremely knowledgeable and able to answer all of our various questions. His pricing was reasonable and we found the tour to be an outstanding value. I would recommend that anyone interested in Santiago book a tour with Juan Carlos.

A very informative and complete overview of Santiago. Juan Carlos has strong knowledge of the city, it's history and interesting facts. He was very adept in navigating the traffic and guiding us along safely during the walking portions. He was very attentive to make sure the activities matched interest. Organized, well timed and very personable guide. Highly recommend Juan Carlos!

Juan tour was amazing and memorable as we visited Santiago’s top sights giving us local insight into historical and modern sites alike. He was very knowledgeable and professional. Perhaps the most memorable parts of the tour were La Vega Central Market and Mercado Central, which in my opinion is the cultural heritage of the city. This indeed was an unforgettable tour as we explored Santiago, visiting legendary landmarks and impressive monuments in topnotch transportation with an expert guide.

Our walking tour with Juan Carlos was truly a five-star experience. He made great suggestions while we were planning the tour, was flexible on the day of, and we got to visit three distinct neighborhoods all on foot as requested. The stop for Pisco Sours and all his knowledge about local culture history and politics were the icing on the cake.

Juan Carlos was very accomodating, responsive, and knowledgeable and his car was very comfortable and clean. However, we were scheduled to visit a winery and we didn't. I thought perhaps I remembered the tour itinerary incorrectly, but when it was over and i checked, there was a winery tour scheduled which didn't take place. I
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ohh.. You are right Pamela!! When I read the itinerary a winery stop was included however I failed to do it because I was convinced it was not... I'm very sorry friends for being forgotten that stop.!! I thought I was doing right.. I never realized of skipping something during our tour. I have been overwhelmed tour after tour day after day that I really missed the winery without any conciousness of doing something wrong. My apologize again dear Pamela for this. My stress level is warning me....

Juan Carlos was ready and waiting for our group on arrival. We had a great day touring Santiago. He took us to a local fish restaurant for lunch which everyone enjoyed. I wish we had not been so tired after our all night flight but it was a great way to spend the day until we could check into our hotel. Juan Carlos was very quick to answer any questions beforehand and made the planning of the trip extremely easy. I would not hesitate to recommend him to others.

Juan did a GREAT job of showing us Santiago. Terrific, English, very good sense of humor and timing, and customized the tour for our whims and inspirations. Nice job, thank you
We had the Santiago city tour with Juan and we were happy with the arrangement and sightseeing that day. Juan met us at the airport and drove us to our hotel to have our luggage stored. We had Juan before on our previous trip, and with his knowledge and our prior communication, we were able to accomplish what we wanted to do that day. On return to the hotel, he also helped us to book a taxi for our return to the airport. We would highly recommend Juan to our friends who want a private tour in Santiago.

Landing in Santiago at 08.30 after a (terrific- thank you, BA) 14 hour flight from London, we were whisked away in Juan Carlos' car at 11.00, & given an overview of Santiago, with great commentary. We felt we had a good grasp of the city. The focus of the tour was the amazing food markets - oh! and flowers! - of Santiago, stopping for tastes from the olive shop where JC buys his olives - fantastic! & a brilliant informed introduction to fruit sellers & fish mongers. Fabulous fish based lunch. Great guide.
Brian McLaughlinUnited States
Wonderful tour by Juan. Everything went so smoothly from the hotel pickup to the Cable Car where we wanted to be dropped off. Getting to understand how people live and work in Santiago is so much better when not in an excursion bus or wandering intelligently, no doubt, with a map and guide to the city. The Santiago market must be about 4 football fields ..and all filled with fresh food. Great lunch at the seafood restaurant and Juan bargained with a local seller to get my souvenir hat. So much more!
