Mauricio was wonderful. Company arranged the tour on very little notice - we booked the afternoon before. Mauricio told us he got word a 2-3 in the morning. He put together a personalized trip around Santiago tailored for us (with two kids age 4 and 7). We hit the highlights, and talked about the political history of the City, but also stopped at horse stables and an ice cream store. He was flexible and accommodating, his conversation as engaging, and his knowledge of the area thorough. Excellent!

Mauricio was a great tour guide. Great personality, very knowledgeable about the area, and he customized the tour based on our preferences. He took us to a great restaurant off the beaten path and did all the ordering for us. He has great knowledge of the local wines. Would book him again. Thanks Mauricio!!!

Fabulous tour with Mauricio. The organic vineyard was fascinating and the wine tasting most enjoyable. We then went to Valparaiso which was beautiful once you got away from the commercial port area. All in all a great tour enhanced by Mauricio's enthusiasm and his obvious love for his job coupled with his excellent English

I reserved remotely for a friend who is on her honeymoon and Mauricio was great! Even gave me a great restaurant recommendation for their dinner reservation and they loved it. The couple loved the tour and said it was a perfect introduction to Santiago that set them up for the rest of their stay. Thanks so much for allowing me to give them such a great gift!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mary, They deserved it :) Best regards, Mauricio

Mauricio picked us up at the Cruise Port in San Antonio and we spent a wonderful day with him in Valparaiso. He was very knowledgeable about the City and we were able to see all the highlights. He also took us to a delightful restaurant for an excellent meal. He suggested that, as we had the time, we visit a boutique winery which we thoroughly enjoyed. Mauricio was an excellent guide and a great person!

Mauricio was right on time and full of energy meeting us at the port. He had pre-arranged a tour of a beautiful winery and showed us parts of Santiago that we could not have seen on a bus tour. He even took us to a great local restaurant to get authentic Chilean cuisine, but is very flexible to what his passengers desire. He was very conscious of our flight time and got us to the airport just before the Delta terminal opened.

We had a fabulous time! Mauricio spoke excellent English, and was extremely entertaining. We visited an excellent winery and then had a relaxing lunch. We explored a town known for its pottery, and got to our cruise ship with time to spare. Thanks to all!

We had a wonderful day with Maurizio. After deciding our preferences for the meal, he drove us to the chaotic Vego market where we proceeded to buy the ingredients. He explained fruit and vegetables we saw that we were not familiar with. We then drove to his house with Maurizio explaining many aspects of Chilean life. We cooked and ate a delicious meal with matching wine. It is always a privilege to visit a family home when travelling, and with the cooking and recipes we greatly enjoyed our day.

Mauricio is a very engaging and charming individual. I hired him at very short notice and he was able to put together an introductory tour to Chile spanning 1 1/2 day, which included Casablanca Valley, Valpareiso and downtown Santiago (and much more). In addition, he is very knowledgeable about wines -- and not just Chilean ones. His van is very clean and spacious.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Stephen ,hope you come back to visit other very interesting places. Yours , Mauricio

Mauricio is a true gentleman, I am new to wine drinking but learnt more in the drive to the first winery then I did in three days of tasting in California. His knowledge was amazing. The winery's we visited were exceptional as was the lunch we had at a local chillean restaurant. Possibly one of the best day trips I have ever taken. Highly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: There was my pleasure to meet you ,hope you come back.let me know how was the Carmenere (Envero) and call me for any question you have about Chilean wines and food ;) Yours,

Not only does Mauricio have a deep and mature understanding of food and the ideals of food connected with culture and human interaction he, through being a tourist guide in the locality for many years, was able to impart detailed Chilean history along the way. A very good afternoon and a pleasure to exchange food ideas with him.

Our family had an amazing day with Mauricio. His knowledge of the history and geography of Chile, as well as his experise in wine were very impressive. We all love wine and were excited to learn so much about the various processes of wine making along with wine tasting. The lunch stop was our favorite meal of the trip, it was awesome! Thanks for a great day and showing us some of the best parts of Chile!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Barbara, there was really my pleasure to meet such a great family,it was so much fun to share with them and hope you come back to Patagonia and bring your other daughter :) Sincerely yours,
