From the get go Juan Carlos made us feel comfortable and relaxed. His company was a pleasure and he spoke excellent English. The car was spacious and very clean. We all enjoyed the tour, his suggested venue for dining was great value and the trip into the mountains just what we wanted. Cheers, Janelle, Jon, Lance and Andrew from Australia

Thank you Juan Carlos. Our trip to Maipo Canyon to see the beautiful scenery, the waterfall and finally lunch and wine tasting was fun and informative. We enjoyed the day and having you as our guide!

Let me start by saying there were some positives to this tour. Juan Carlos was knowledgeable and the part of the tour that we accomplished was scenic. We were getting off a ship that day so things were chaotic and Juan Carlos was flexible as we tried to plan the day. I think the biggest issue was his time management skills and setting realistic expectations for the tour. So as it was we did not get to the winetasting and he got us to the airport later then requested. I would not use him again.

Juan Carlos was knowledgeable and friendly, and taught me a lot about the city outside of the horseback ride. Would recommend to anyone looking for a local guide.
Jessie HochUnited States
What a great guide! He was able to put together a custom tour that would accommodate our shortened time frame. He picked perfect wineries for us as well as a great local restaurant. His knowledge of the area and history of the wine region was impressive and added to the each stop. Would recommend booking a tour with Juan Carlos!

We had a wonderful time with Juan Carlos! He was informative, gracious, funny, charming and a very good driver. He was flexible and had a nice Ford Explorer with air conditioning that he drove us around in. I loved all three wineries that we visited.

Tour with Juan Carlos was FUN, interesting and very easy to personalize based on what we wanted. My husband and I were in Santiago on vacations and wanted to go to the top/well-known wineries in Maipo Valley and in overall Chile, Santa Rita and Concha y Toro. He was very flexible during the planning phase and responsive. During the tour, he was very detailed, knowledgeable, and easy going. It felt like having a great time with a friend rather than the usual teacher/student type of tour. Highly recommended
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Gracias amigos... Tambien les deseo lo mejor para uds.

The Maipo Valley tour yesterday with Juan Carlos was excellent. Spending the day in the Andes Mountains after a few days of conference in Santiago was very relaxing. Juan Carlos is very knowledgeable about the region and really, all of Latin America. Wonderful Time!

This is my second tour with Juan Carlos and he is amazing!! Professional and so knowledgeable. The tour itself was great, seeing the Andes up close is a must for anyone visiting Chile. I had a great time and looking forward to more tours next year when I return!!!

Nous étions 4 personnes qui avons eu le plaisir d'avoir Juan Carlos comme guide et accompagnateur lors de notre dernier séjour au Chili. Il parle un français impeccable. Il possède une connaissance profonde de son pays et il sait la communiquer parfaitement. Nous avons grandement apprécié son professionnalisme et sa disponibilité de tout instant. Nous le recommandons grandement. Merci à lui.

Beautiful area. We were able to walk some in the town, and stop for photos while driving and also a winery along the way. Juan Carlos chose a great place for bar-b-que lunch

Juan Carlos was very prompt, friendly, excellent driver and spoke excellent English. The tour was very informative and he accommodated our requests. We enjoyed seeing and hearing about the Maipo valley area. We stopped for lunch at a local restaurant and enjoyed a traditional Chilean dish and local beer. Also went to a winery to purchase wine to enjoy on our Cruise. Highly recommend Juan Carlos who is very knowledgeable and friendly. A pleasure to be with.

Juan Carlos was punctual in picking me up and in getting me to a flight with my tight schedule. I enjoyed this tour and especially the special Chilean foods he introduced me to--moto con huesillos and a baked empanada.

We enjoyed being with Juan Carlos for three days and had a delightful time seeing both Valparaiso and Santiago. Our group of four highly recommends his service as a guide for the area.
