Victor was a fabulous tour guide. We not only saw the highlights of both Santiago and Valparaiso but we were able to see many of the local spots as well. As tourists, we truly appreciated his always being prompt, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and always looked out for our welfare. Victor is a man of highest character. We would love to travel with him some day in the future.

Victor was amazing. Picked us up right on time and took us on the most wonderful and scenic drive from Santiago to Vino Del Mar and Valparaíso. We saw beautiful coastal resorts and winding roads through the mountains, toured the lovely towns and stopped in Casablanca to buy wines. He was knowledgeable, helpful and friendly and our group of 4 all agreed it was a lovely day and one we will long remember. Thank you Victor for a magical day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You are very welcome Janet, I also had great time touring you around my places here, I' m very glad you enjoyed all here and I hope we can meet again sometime. Un cordial saludo desde Santiago de Chile para usted Janet .

Great job! We were picked up exactly on time, and enjoyed a constant stream of information as we traveled to Vina Del Mar. Lunch was at a very reasonable restaurant with delicious food, followed by touring Valparaiso in the van and unhurried visits to view sites. We truly enjoyed our day before being dropped off at our hotel. Perfect!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Prudence for your review, In very glad you had enjoyed all what we did here. I hope you had arrived home safe and keep on having a good year. Saludos cordiales desde Chile para ustedes.

Excellent tour and an even better guide. Victor was outstanding in every way. Flawless English, extremely knowledgeable, flexible and a really nice person. Nice extra was the stop at the winery (Bodega Re) which has very unusual blends that are delicious. There were four of us in this tour and we rode in a very comfortable large van. I highly recommend this tour or any other tour with Victor as a guide.
David SilverUnited States
Victor was a pleasure in guiding us through Vina del Mar and Valparaiso areas. He picked us up in a spotless SUV. A very safe driver. He has extensive knowledge of Santiago and on the drive to Valparaiso provided extensive history. His English is impeccable. He is very flexible in altering his tour because we wanted to spend more time in Valparaiso instead of Vina del Mara. He knows the area well and took us to the highlights of both cities. He is very professional. I would highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm very glad you had enjoyed the tour we did to Valparaiso and Viña del Mar, thank you very much for your review David, please give my regards to your wife and Sister and I hope we can keep in touch. Un cordial saludo para ustedes desde Chile.

Victor was fantastic. He knew so very much about history and culture and great places to see visit and fantastic restaurants. He was so flexible and attentive to our schedule. I would be honored to have him as a guide again anytime. He truly was a wonderful representative of this lovely country and area. We were so lucky to have him as our guide honestly.
Scott SchafrankUnited States
Victor is extremely knowledgeable on many subjects, was always considerate, and had dozens of wonderful suggestions for us after the tour. He clearly is well known, and we were treated especially well at the vineyard and lunch stops. His choice of a boutique vineyard, Vina Re, was an unforgettable experience. I cannot day enough about how wonderful our day was with Victor in Valparaíso and The Casablanca Valley.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm very glad being able to work for you Scott, your hole family and yourself where very pleasant to work with. I hope you keep enjoying your trip around Chile and I wish we can meet again sometime. Thank you so much for your review and have a great New Year's Eve in Patagonia. Un cordial saludo para usted y su familia.
Robert F.United States
Victor provided an outstanding all day tour of the Valparaiso and Santiago area. He started providing us with non stop detailed descriptions of the history, economy, etc of the area from the time we embarked in the van at San Antonio. We did not have to pry the information from him. His ability to balance driving and keeping up the verbal presentation were admired by our group. His speaks excellent English. We highly recommend you contact Victor for a private tour if you get to the area.
Diana NohavaUnited States
Victor was amazing. Spoke excellent English and took us to a great boutique winery. Toured Vina De Mar and had lunch overlooking the ocean. Onward to Valparaiso where after touring through the town he dropped us at our hotel. He is so good we booked another tour with him on Wed for a tour and transfer to our cruise ship in San Antonio.
This tour was superb and we were very impressed with Victor. Victor was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, his English was excellent, he was a courteous driver, and the van was clean and met the needs of our group perfectly.

So easy to be taken to the interesting places without having to try get to and from Santiago. Private tour for price of a bigger tour group.

We had a fabulous day with Victor visiting Valparaiso, Vina del Mar and two wineries in Casablanca. He is very knowledgeable and very easy to get along with.

Robyn McCullochNew Zealand
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Clients required to stop by the Santiago fruits and vegetables market, but by the time we arrived the city, that market was almost closed on Sunday and the only chance for that fruit shopping, would have been at the supermarket. All that not part of this tour itinerary, anyway.I offered them to go the local store, But it was also closed.I'm sorry for that.
John HunleyUnited States
What a wonderful day with Victor! We stopped at the Emiliana winery for a tasting, then went on to Vina del Mar to see the sights and enjoy a seafood lunch. We then went to Valparaiso where we rode one of the old funiculars and went to several scenic viewpoints to marvel at the vistas. Victor also drove us by many of the city's famous murals and art. We even stopped at a photo gallery since Victor knew I was an avid photographer. Victor's enthusiasm was infectious, and his English was flawless.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your review mrs. Hunley. I'm very glad you enjoyed our tours here. I hope to meet you both some time again. Best regards for you teo.
Dean PeytonUnited States
We were a party of four arriving by Oceania cruise ship. Victor Hugo promptly met us at the port entrance and we headed out for our tour. We toured Valparaiso and Vina del Mar, both beautiful cities. We then headed to Casablanca Valley, Chile's icon wine valley where we toured Casas del Bosque winery. The tour and tasting at the winery was delightful. Hugo did an outstanding job, he spoke great English and he was very enjoyable to be around. I highly recommend Hugo.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your review Dean, I very glad you enjoyed our tour and I hope to meet you agin sometime. Un abrazo desde SNtiago

Denise HarringtonUnited States
Victor was great. He was very personable and funny. He also had an excellent knowledge of the area and things I wanted to see. I would highly recommend taking his tour.
Jim F.United States
Victor provided us a great tour of Valparaiso, Vina del Mar and a winery. None of us cared for the wine we sampled at Casa del Bosques, but the winery was beautiful. We liked Victor's style of touring; he drove by various areas and points of interest in each city, offering ongoing commentary on what we were seeing. In addition, we made several stops at the more significant sites. We could have made more, but we were not so inclined. We enjoyed the overview of the cities.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your comments and I hope we can meet again in the future. ¡ Hasta siempre !
Bonnie BackesUnited States
Victor was excellent. He brought a special local knowledge that we would not have gotten on a large tour. He was ready with a full day planned for us including a reservation at a winery and lunch which we enjoyed so much. He is a wonderful guide and representative of the Chilean people!
