Our guide Claudio was terrific. A native of the area, Claudio was knowledgeable, courteous and fun. He made every effort to provide the best experience possible and catered to our interests and desires. His suggestions as to shopping and other areas of interest were perfect. We had a very enjoyable day and would highly recommend Claudio and this tour.

Claudio was at the pier awaiting our group and greeted us immediately. We had a wonderful tour which lasted the entire day and didn't want it to end but the ship was sailing. Claudio is an excellent driver and that is important to me. His knowledge of the area was great and every landmark was explained in detail. My friend purchased some flowers at the fish market and he leant her the money as she didn't have Chilean money. I hope to book another tour with this company as this guide was superb.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Marianne, thanks so much for come to see us. The idea is to give always the best for our customers/friends. On my behalf I also enjoyed the day with your nice group. Thanks again!!

Claudio was great!!! He was very articulate and his English was excellent.He was accommodating and very helpful when both my friend and I both realized that we had left our credit cards and all cash on board the ship. The ship was tendered, so there was the no possibility to return and we were 30 minutes from the harbor. We had no money for lunch or for a tip. He bought the 4 of us lunch and refused to give us his address so that I could mail a check. He's the best!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Andrew; many thanks for your nice comments. Hope you enjoyed the empanadas!! Best wishes...Claudio

He was excellent. The four of us all agreed he was most professional and very informative. His English was perfect as our Spanish/Chilean was poor. We much enjoyed his company for the day and would highly recommend him as your guide.

Oh Claudio, what a wonderful guide he was! Thanks so much! You made our group trip unforgettable! Claudio was a wonderful tour guide and his knowledge of history and surroundings served to enhance our experience and appreciation of Peurto Montt, Chile very much. There were so much to explore and see. Beautiful Llanquihue lake, snowcapped all year round Osorno Volcano, mixture of colors of the Petrohue river and it's rapid falls...even Puerto Varas was a memorable small town. We highly recommend him!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Jenny for bringing your group here!!....Hope to have you back again!!....Best wishes for you and your husband

Claudio was an excellent guide to an area of outstanding beauty. He customized the trip to accommodate the things of interest to us. He shared his knowledge of the area as someone who lives there, not just the Wikipedia facts, but really helped us understand the culture. We were a group of four, each with different interests and all of us had a fascinating day. We have had guides all over the world, he is one of the best.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Carol!!....I really apreciatte your comments....To do tours with people like you makes my job much more easy and funny!!!....Greetings to all of you!!

What a great day. Claudio was waiting for us at our cruise ship. He is personable and very knowledgeable and speaks very good English. If you can't book him for the day you want his wife is also a guide. There were four of us in our group and we did Petrohue Falls, the Orso Volcano and then had lunch with Claudio at a wonderful restaurant in Puerto Varas, a beautiful little town. His local knowledge made the day perfect. Highly recommend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Cathy for your words. It is always nice to share the day with people like you!!!

Claudio had a very easy going pleasant personality and excellent command of English. We never had to ask him to repeat a thing. As opposed to other guides most of who we have been very pleased with, Claudio had a unique way of introducing us to a site or shopping area. He would drive around the shopping/restaurant area pointing out what to concentrate on and recommend, than ask us how much time we wanted to ourselves, and would meet us at an appropriate place. You will not be disappointed.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I feel lucky to have so nice people as my passengers. It was a pleasure!!.....Best wishes James!!

Claudio was a charming and very knowledgeable guide during our stay at Puerto Montt. He was waiting for us as soon as our ship docked and was immediately in tune with what we wanted to see. He was able to dodge the crowds by adjusting the itinerary so we had a very relaxing and enjoyable time with him covering all the sights. At the end of our day he took us to a fabulous local fish restaurant and joined us for lunch. You will not be disappointed in hiring Claudio during your stay in Puerto Montt

Claudio was punctual and the van comfortable. Enroute he gave us good information about the area and answered questions. My only misgiving was that at the open air German Museum, in Futillar and the walk in the town, he did not accompany us but sent us out on our own. I rely on the local stories and we did not get any of those. Highlight was the outstanding lunch visit where we participated in a demo and cooking with a great host in a beautiful venue. Thanks to Claudio for arranging that.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks Sondra for your words. All comments and critics are well recieved. There is always something to improve. Regards!!

Claudio was excellent, as was the tour. We were originally scheduled to have a different guide, but when a medical emergency arose, he stepped in and gave us a super day at the Falls, the Orsono volcano, and Puerto Varas. His explanations of the things we saw and his enthusiasm and sense of humor throughout made the tour a great success.

Claudio was waiting for us when we arrived at the cruise ship dock, and we instantly felt comfortable with him. He is knowledgeable, relaxed, and good-natured. He's also a good driver! He had planned a day for us that enabled us to see the highlights of Puerto Montt, Puerto Varas, and Frutillar. We had ample free time for strolling, shopping, and taking in the beautiful views. We had an excellent fish and seafood lunch at a restaurant he had chosen. It was a lovely day, and we recommend Claudio highly.

Claudio was excellent--solicitous, interesting, fun and informative. So nice to go on a tour like this with individual attention and someone to answer all your questions. We had a much better experience than all the bus tours. We got to go to a delightful restaurant and go up to Osorno and climb part way up the mountainstide. I would rate Claudio very highly for his English skills and interpersonal skills in helping us have a wonderful time in the beautiful area of Puerto Montt and environs. Thanks!
