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.
