Christopher John W.

Santiago, metropolitana region, Chile

I was born in Barcelona, Spain, my dad was English and mother from Chile.

As a child, I lived in Honduras, Great Britain, and Argentina, where I finished school. After studying hotel administration in Santiago I became a flight attendant for then Lan Chile , for almost four years.
I was then introduced into receptive tourism by a friend with experience , I knew from the beginning it was my thing. I enjoy showing the diversity of my country , with its rich culture, history and traditions, but also appreciate meeting interesting different walks of life.
I believe in doing things with passion and that also means the fine detail, from planning ahead to reserving a vegetarian menu in any given restaurant.
With more than 18 years experience in the trade, I feel confident providing quality time, making sure to meet clients needs.

A Recent Review of this guide

Chris was prompt, very helpful with our luggage, had a clean, comfortable vehicle, and was a very safe driver. On the drive to Santiago he engaged in a very detailed, informative and interesting conversation about the history of Chile and the current situation in the country. The tour of Santiago was thorough, covering most areas of life in the city, and Chris was very accommodating to our particular needs. Thanks Chris!
