Gabriel O was very patient ( the ship was over an hour late), flexible and his knowledge of Santiago was impeccable. He gave us as much time as we needed to get a complete view and feeling about Santiago. He knew every nook and cranny of the city. He was personable and conscientious. When one of the museums were closed he did everything possible to make it up to us. He found additional sites to interest us. He truly wanted to satisfy. He gets my expert recommendation.

Gabriel and our tour of Valparaiso was a perfect way to get from cruise ship to Santiago hotel. Brand new van was clean and very comfortable. Gabriel was very sensitive to my husband's walking limitations and adjusted the tour accordingly. He is a wealth of information! Only difficulty we experienced is that we sometimes had understanding him and he did not understand some of our questions and a request. Overall, great day.

Gabriel (fantastic!) met us after our cruise ended in San Antonio. He drove us to Valparaíso for a very informative walking tour of the city. We all took lots of pictures and loved the colorful murals . We even found some great items to buy! We then went to a wonderful place for some seafood . Next,he drove us through the Vina Del Mar resort area and we got out to photograph the sea lions -unexpected surprise! We finished with a wine tasting in the Casa Blanca region - winery was so beautiful! Enjoyed !
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind comments. Regards, Gabriel O.

Gabriel was very delightful. He was on time for the boat. Had a wonderful walking tour, a great lunch at a beautiful spot, and lovely wine tour. He was flexible as to our wishes. A great option

Fantastic experience. We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Gabriel. His knowledge and friendliness far exceeded our expectations. The four of us and our luggage comfortably fit in Gabriel's car. We will definitely look for "Tours by Locals" on our next vacation.

Gabriel was the best!! He offered to change our tour time to an hour earlier to ensure that we covered everything on our day long tour without getting too close to our ships departure time. He has a nice new van that we could get into places the cruise ship buses could never reach. Gabriel was a fabulous host by rearranging our tour to accommodate us with a nice leisurely semi-private lunch at the winery with super food and wine rather than making the wine tour the last item on our schedule!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wayne Clement Thank you so much for your opinion. Regards, Gabriel O.

Nice day. Would have preferred to spend some time in Santiago, rather than the long waiting time at the winery. Loved seeing the coastline! Thank you.
