We were very impressed with Andres! Our tender time in port was changed three times yet each time we notified him by email, Andres rolled with it. In the end, we had much less time in port that we had hoped, but he was flexible and we felt like we saw SO much in the time we ended up with. And he even took us to his favorite empanada place when we asked! We also felt like we learned a lot about chile!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Cynthia! Thank you so much for your review. I seem you enjoined your Empanada Chilena as I did. Thank you for visit our country and I hope next time you will have more time to visit Chile. Best regards, Andres Tour Guide

Date: Feb 28/18

Andres gave us a lot of local information and details. However he did not come up with other things or a way to use our full allotted time. It was nice to see the area, but there is not a lot to do here in a six hour period as you cannot get into any significant hiking if interest is there and some of the national park features are easily seen elsewhere. We opted to see the towns and how people lived and worked in the area and that was interesting.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ms. Andrews. Thank you for your advice, I will take in mind, but city tours is not the best place to hiking, If you compare with the National Park. Different excursions, different experiences. Thank you for visit our country. Andres Tour Guide

Andres was a delightful guide with a very keen sense of humour! His communication skills are very good; he spoke of his personal experiences of living in the area in an entertaining manner. He took us to a viewpoint near the house where he was born and he covered many miles to ensure that we saw as much of the area as possible. Although we were some 90 minutes late meeting him at the port (ship's fault), he gave us the total amount of time paid for. He provided a snack too! He was great company.

He had us to the cruise terminal in good time and he took very good care of us. He made sure to meet special requests like shopping for an iphone charger cord and a grocery store visit.

Andres met us punctually at the cruise port. In Frutillar we walked along the shore, taking many photos. He showed us some delicious cakes and we had to have a coffee stop! Then pisco sours in Puerto Varas and a good walk round. Unfortunately the weather was not kind to us, so the views were not as spectacular as we had hoped. We did not feel rushed and Andres stopped for us whenever we wanted. He was very patient! We had an interesting day and would recommend Andres without hesitation. Thank you, Andres!

We were a party of four arriving by Oceania cruise ship. Andres promptly met us at the cruise port and we set out for our tour. We headed to Llanquihue Lake, huge and beautiful, then on to visiting Osorno Volcano including hiking around the Petrohue Falls and visiting All Saints Lake. The area was spectular especially when the clouds broke and we were able to see Osorno. Andres was knowledgeable, very pleasant and did a great job showing us the sites around Puerto Montt. We would highly recommend.

The unpredictable weather dictates flexibility and having a local guide with Andres' knowledge, versatility and adaptable attitude turned a few damp days into very memorable expedition.

Andres responded to lots of questions from 18 passengers and strategically managed our Puerto Montt tour so that we avoided the cruise ship's tour groups. As a result we got to see the Osorno volcano clearly while most cruise passengers got there late only to see clouds obscuring the snow clad mountain top. He also showed us the Angelmo fish market where we got to sample the very tasty barnacals. A few of us also got to taste freshly made shrimp & cheese as well as seafood empanadas with fillo like dough

Everything went according to plan. The airport pickup and dropoff were right on schedule, and I saw everything I wanted to see in the 1-day trip and did it all safely. There were no problems, and the trip went fine. Andres did a great job.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Raymond: Thank you all for your feedback. The truth is I learned a lot of things about the history of your Sailors Ancestors and the exploration of Chiloé Island almost two hundred years ago. I was a pleasure to be your tour Guide for that day! Thank you all for that. Sincerely, Andres Tour Guide Toursbylocals.com

If you want a guide who intuitively senses the interests and the tempo of his clients; constantly reminds you he's flexible to accommodate any requests, then Andres is the guide for you! He was extremely knowledgeable and able to answer (in perfect English) our questions on architecture, horticulture, wildlife, foods, wines, music, local folklore, etc. When this guy says he's a "country boy" take him at his word because he's not only a superb guide he's got a heart as big as the Patagonia, too!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Luigi & Peter: Thank you for your words! Was a pleasure to be your tour guide, especially when you find travelers so nice and enthusiastic about our beautiful Nature and Local roots. Hope you have a great return to your Home!

Andres was a wonderful guide for our party of 10. Our only concern was the amount of shopping for which time was set aside. Our group only had 1 shopper so the rest of us would have preferred more sightseeing time. That being said Andres did take us on a walking tour of Puerto Montt & Puerto Varas which was greatly enjoyed by all!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Carole & Group of Friends: Thank for your feedback, as a Toursbylocals Guide, always I tried to give our Travelers the best service as we can; even when the weather wasn´t perfect by the rain!

Andres is an wonderful guide. His knowledge of the land around Puerto Monte is excellent. When he learned that we were interested in birds and photography he tailored the excursion to match our interest. We were able to avoid the areas that were overcrowded with tourist on ship excursions. I highly recommend Andres.

We have used Tours by locals for a few years now and the reason is because of people like Andres. "Top Notch" in every respect.....he knew where and WHEN to be at places to 'beat the big tour buses".....and this is very important. The scenery in Puerto Montt is breath taking and Andres made sure we saw all of it during our one day visit from our cruise ship. Thanks again!!

Andres is a five-star guide all the way. He shared his enthusiasm for all Patagonia had to offer by e-mail well before we arrived, and kept us updated on weather and plans as our cruise ship neared Puerto Montt. He provided snacks and made sure all entry fees were pre-paid. Andres made sure we had spectacular views of the Petrohue Falls, Osorno Volcano and surround areas. He then gave us a real feel for beautiful Puerto Varas and took us to find exactly the kind of local crafts we wanted. Great day!

Andres was fantastic!. Excellent English and completely on schedule. We were a party of four and we sat comfortably in his vehicle which had a separate driver. Andres was then able to concentrate on touring and answering our questions. Andres truly loves nature and anyone wanting a special time could not find a better guide. My husband has food allergies and Andres did a great job finding us the right restaurant. The whole day was a dream come true in beautiful Patagonia.

Andres was on time to our meeting point. He was very accommodating and helpful to my 85 year old mother. We packed in a stop at the Petrohue Waterfalls, Osorno Volcano area, lunch at a local restaurant, as well as a little time to shop near the pier. We were able to adjust our schedule as the day flew by which allowed us to do as we wished. I would highly recommend Andres without hesitation. His knowledge of the history of the area was quite informative and kept us all captivated.

We worked with Andres to create a 2-day custom tour around Puerto Varas and Punta Arenas. The first day was spent visiting the local markets that are far off the usual tourist itinerary. Including lunch at a local restaurant, and despite the weather being less than cooperative, the day was outstanding and filled with many memories. Day 2, volcanoes, waterfalls, and national parks. Andres created many great photo opportunities and the day was outstanding. A great guide and local expert. Well recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Mark & Andrea! Thank you for your kind recommendations and I´m very glad to hear you spent a great time visiting our Local Markets, tasting our local cuisine and taking photos of our National Parks and their Volcanoes and Lakes!

We were on a cruise Apr.11 docking in Puerto Montt. We met our tour guide from Tours By Locals outside the container port gate as some guides are not able to go inside.Despite this being an area of high rainfall, we had a beautiful day. If you are looking for a guide, Andres is fantastic. His English is excellent. His sense of humour & personality, wonderful. Alex is a safe driver who allows you to enjoy the day.

Andres was AMAZING. He spoke English VERY well (I would consider him fluent in English). He was very friendly AND very knowledgeable. He explained everything available for our all day tour, then gave us options if we wanted to alter the excursion. He was prompt picking us up at port and dropped us off at the port entrance on time. I felt this was the best tour guide and excursion on our cruise (we took 5 private excursions).

We LOVED the unexpected hike and he and his driver made sure we were all cared for (we were traveling with my elderly parents - who he was very attentive to, since we were walking on irregular ground - and my two young sons).
